The International Women’s Day 2021, Vakkaru Maldives celebrated its charming female team members who play such a vital role in providing all that the luxury resort aspires to offer.

Hosting various special programmes provided a way of saying a very big thank you for the team’s hard work, dedication and passion while empowering team members to reach their full potential in everything they do.

The International Women’s Day events for team members began with sunrise yoga on the beach conducted by Vakkaru’s resident yogi, Anna Tsoy.

Female staff also enjoyed a little extra indulgence with a special Starting our Queens Off Right themed breakfast, having the management team serving a special set menu to the ladies. At the team village, special floral displays and fun social events for our female colleagues helped to brighten the day up further.

Vakkaru Maldives General Manager Iain McCormack said: “We are proud to have 53 women working in various departments of the resort, and we strive to provide equal involvement of women in all possible areas, along with opportunities to develop their career and recognise their achievements, while also creating a healthy work-life balance.

I wish a Happy International Women’s Day to all of Vakkaru’s ladies and I really thank them for all their incredible work.” The resort hosted tailored International Women’s Day activities for guests to join in the celebrations. Inspired by a slogan that provides genuine inspiration and guidance to Vakkaru’s management approach - “empowered women empower women” – starting off the day with a ‘Rise and Shine’ morning yoga session conducted by visiting practitioner and spiritual guru, Dawn Harlow.

This inspiring Kundalini yoga session allowed women to harness their power and energy through breath, movement and mantras. Vakkaru’s resident Ayurvedic doctor, Dr. Kalani Perera, invited female guests to discover more about women’s body, alongside providing some health tips to maintain overall wellbeing.
