The Lux Collective's beloved LUX* South Ari Atoll welcomed extraordinary guests for this year's Women's Day celebrated on the 8th of March.

Following the tradition, the renowned island resort hosted inspiring changemakers and thought leaders, who contribute to the development of the Maldives, each in her own field. This year, the guests were invited for an Extraordinary Quest with pop-up surprises and hosted workshops designed to guide them on a new approach to daily routine.

Six women of different nationalities, professions and positions made it to the "extraordinary winners" list: Ajna Shareef - Aero Marketing Manager at Maldives Airports Company Limited, Shaistha Mohamed - MSP Engagement Strategist at Noo Raajje, Elisabeth Gressl - founder & designer of LANALA Swimwear, Mary Halym – self-made artist & owner of Kakuni Studio, Viktoriia Lavrinets - Lead Safety & Sustainability Consultant at NSURE, and Aishath Alaa Abdul Hannan - Deputy Manager of Corporate Strategy & Business Development at Trans Maldivian Airways. All of them shine brightly in their industries, supporting the Maldives towards a successful and sustainable future.

"Every year, we invite inspiring women from different industries across the country to celebrate their successes. From running a small business, teaching art, or rocking the corporate world, we want to appreciate their contribution, which is very valuable to the Maldives. We find it truly beautiful that both local and expat ladies from many nationalities call the islands their home and work together to make the Maldives shine", said Anastasiya Babenko, Marketing & PR Manager of LUX* South Ari Atoll.
