This International Women’s Day, Vakkaru Maldives celebrates its female team members by hosting special programmes.

This International Women’s Day, Vakkaru Maldives celebrates its female team members who play a vital role in providing all that the resort aspires to offer. Hosting various special programmes provided Vakkaru with a way of saying a very big thank you for all of the women’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 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 the female colleagues helped to brighten the day up further.

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.
