The Island

Located on a natural lagoon the island impresses with its lush, tropical vegetation. Measured 750 meters long and 500 meters wide, a short walk across the tropical landscape takes barely five minutes. The velvety white beaches are strewn with beautiful cowrie shells. Unlike the typical sandy beach, the white sand on the island is not quartz but crushed pieces of coral therefore it is as soft as flour and squeaks pleasantly under the foot.

Deeply rooted in the identity of the island nation a tall coconut palms provide shade and enhance the tropical atmosphere. Nearly 60 different plant species are native to the beautiful island. Frangipani, roses, hibiscus and anthuriums are just a few of the colorful plants that create an absolute vacation feeling. Also, the pink rose, which is considered the national flower of the Maldives, blooms on the island Raa Maamigili in full splendor. Each guest will be provided with a bike to explore the island.

Another highlight is the coral reef, which extends over 100 hectares and is completely untouched. The natural aquarium is home to countless colorful fish, rays, sharks and turtles that can be admired up close. The resort’s memorable name – “Cora Cora” – is derived from this spectacular reef. Corals are symbolic for strength and beauty.

The resort’s layout and location of villas will mean couples can relax in a tranquil setting while families can have fun in their own private space or at the island’s kids’ club.

Attributes that are reflected in the philosophy of the resort as well. Cora Cora Maldives is the one-of-kind resort in the Maldives to showcase a licensed art gallery and museum! With over 400 incredible local artefacts in the collection, guests can explore the rich history of the Maldives in its breath-taking natural surroundings.

Restaurants and Bars

Exclusive food and drinks of the highest quality and finest taste await visitors in four restaurants, two bars and a café. The multifaceted gastronomic concept leaves nothing to be desired. The focus is on a healthy lifestyle. Superfoods are no stranger to Cora Cora Maldives Resort, and vegan and gluten-free options are offered in every restaurant.

Director of culinary is the renowned Italian chef Umberto Piccolini, who transforms every dish into a special experience. Along with his 80-member team, he relies on the freshest and finest ingredients. Creative menus and innovative drinks provide a special culinary experience.

Catering for a wealth of foodie requirements, Cora Cora Maldives will also serve an array of healthy options and plant-based dishes, including home-made vegan ice cream created using fresh fruits and organic ingredient. These are all part of the Gourmet Meal Plan.

Umberto Piccolini has created a delicious range of authentic, local dishes, plant-based meals and drawing inspiration from across the globe, his creativity knows no bounds and this is reflected in the menus he has curated for each.

Tazää® all day dining (a la carte/buffet) is a tribute to the dishes created on the old spice route. A fabulous food culture stretching from Lebanon in the west, continuing along the route to the south of India, Sri Lanka and onwards down to Maldives. Typical Maldivian dishes are also served here,such as “Kandu Kukulhu Riha”. The Maldivian yellowfin tuna fillet, traditionally rubbed in curry paste, is also known as “chicken of the sea”.

Combining the elements of music, dining, entertainment, pool and beach into one vibrant destination, Acquapazza® is an Italian Restaurant & Beach Club lifestyle concept serving meals and drinks throughout the day. Among other things, the traditional Maldivian music “Bodu Beru”, based on drums and reminiscent of the long relations with East Africa a few centuries ago, can be heard here. Special recommendation is the “Pizza Aquapazza”, topped with cherry tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella and reef fish. The pizza is baked on a 0.5-meter-long dough plate in a stone oven and therefore tastes very aromatic.

Teien® is a Japanese restaurant (a la carte) that combines traditional Teppanyaki, Sushi and Kushiyaki styles of dining. The “Teien Kushiyaki Platter” with a selection of different skewers, cheese Maki, Enoki Maki, Ebi and Tebasaki is considered a recommendation of the house. Bonappetit!

Ginger Moon® – An Asian Restaurant offering the flavors of Asia’s legendary markets. All meals here are prepared individually and freshly according to guests’ preferences.Signature dish of the restaurant is “Geang Kati Puu Mhee Hoon”, a savory curry of Phuket crab meat garnished on vermicelli noodles.

My Coffee® cafe and bar– A 24-hour flow of craft coffees, Maldivian snacks, ice creams and drinks. My Coffee blends rustic chic with modern style.

Drinks are also included in the Gourmet Meal Plan® and provide special refreshment. For example, the “No-groni”, a combination of three non-alcoholic drinks served on ice, provides cooling after a long day at the beach.

The so-called “Popsicle Punch” is also characteristic. Nothing screams summer more than a Popsicle instead of ice cubes in a refreshing mango strawberry lemonade.

Fans of the popular classic “Aperol Spritz” also get their money’s worth at the resort and can toast an unforgettable vacation with their loved ones.

And if you’re looking for something a little more unusual, Director of Culinary Umberto Piccolini recommends the “Rosemary Fig Teien Whisky Sour”. Here, Japanese whiskey meets egg white, fig syrup, fresh lemon juice and a sprig of rosemary. Cheers!
