Male, Maldives, 19th December 2023 – Nestled in the breathtaking Raa Atoll, the luxurious five-star Cora Cora Maldives has seen a remarkable increase in solo female travelers following its prestigious acknowledgment with the highly esteemed SHe Travel Club Label earlier this year. Known for its opulence and tropical charm, the resort has observed a notable surge in independent women exploring its offerings.
Since receiving the coveted SHe Travel Club Label in May 2023, Cora Cora Maldives has hosted an equal number of solo female travelers as it did from its opening in October 2021 until the recognition earlier this year. This indicates a significant shift in travel preferences among women.
The trend of female-centric travel has been steadily rising, evident in the 230% surge in businesses catering exclusively to women clientele. Globally, women now constitute 64% of travelers, with men representing 36%. Projections suggest women will spend nearly £100 billion on travel in 2023, highlighting their increasing interest in solo journeys.
