The Coral Lodge Family

The secret to our success lies with every single team member of our Coral Lodge Family.

It is easy for a lodge to acquire luxury interiors and finishes, but to find a genuinely passionate and proud team of staff that appreciates every single person that chooses to spend their holiday with us, is something unique and special.

For many, the success of our lodge is essential to the livelihoods of their families in our local communities, and our general Management team, Ricardo and Filipa, hold each staff member’s wellbeing extremely close to their hearts too.

Respect, love, personal growth, and motivation make the Coral Lodge magic happen.

On this page, we proudly feature all of our family members.

We have asked them to say what it is that they love most about working at Coral Lodge.
