Cora Cora Maldives

A pristine private island escape

Any fears about being marooned on a private island are banished the minute you set foot on Cora Cora Maldives' picture-perfect shores. Spread across a 43-acre spit of land on the Raa Atoll, the luxury resort fits so naturally into the tiny island’s landscape that you might just feel like a well-cared-for castaway.

The all-inclusive Maldives resort embraces the ethos of “freedom time,” a concept born in a post-pandemic world that invites guests to rediscover the freedom to do whatever they choose. You can roam the island, where just 100 villas keep the crowds away. A blanket all-inclusive plan makes decision-making a breeze, whether it’s choosing a place for dinner or deciding which excursion to enjoy. And friendly staff ensures that you’re well taken care of throughout your stay.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • A first for the island nation, Cora Cora Maldives boasts a licensed art gallery and the Dutch Onion Museum and Outdoor Heritage Site showcasing the country’s history as an international trading port. The well-curated exhibition features more than 400 artifacts as well as a partially excavated outdoor site.
  • Those looking to take a deeper dive into their island surroundings can head for the onsite PADI-certified scuba school. Novices can get certified for open-water diving, while more experienced divers can enjoy excursions to some of the island’s top sites for spotting sea life.
  • Whether you’re a long-time yogi or have never done a downward dog, a sunset yoga class is a must at Cora Cora Maldives. The views alone will send you straight to a state of grateful bliss.
  • A wealth of watersports is available via the resort’s all-inclusive plan. Of course, if you’re looking for less active pursuits, guided nature walks, movie screenings, guitar lessons, cooking demonstrations and more are available as well.
  • Four dining venues — all boasting ocean views, of course — ensure your taste buds don’t get bored on the Maldives resort’s all-inclusive plan. A beachfront coffee shop even pours all-you-can-enjoy cups of caffeine, ice cream, snacks and cocktails right on the sand.

The Rooms

  • Cora Cora Maldives’ 100 villas are divided between beachfront and lagoon accommodations. For the classic overwater experience, book a stay in a lagoon villa with direct access to the water from a private deck.
  • Open-air bathrooms bring soothing sea breezes into your villa. Beach villas boast secluded outdoor soaking tubs and showers, while the overwater accommodations have large open-air alcoves with hammocked daybeds made for soaking up sun before indulging in an afternoon soak.
  • All villas are adorned with carvings, paintings, textiles and ceramics created by local artists. Thatched roofs and ribbed ceilings add an additional authentic touch.
  • Well-placed pops of color in pillows and artworks liven up the otherwise neutral space but don’t detract from the main event: those perfect turquoise ocean views.
