Located within the Maldive's Emboodhoo Lagoon, the new Hard Rock Hotel Maldives forms part of CROSSROADS Maldives, the country’s first and only integrated resort
Hard Rock International and S Hotels & Resorts have joined forces for Hard Rock Hotel Maldives, the first Maldivian outpost of the iconic Hard Rock hotel brand.
Opened in September, the hotel features a Hard Rock Cafe, Body Rock fitness centre, Rock Spa, Rock Shop and, for kids, the Hard Rock Roxity Kids Club and Teen Spirit Club.
The 178 rooms include family suites, beach villas, overwater villas and overwater pool villas. The Sound of Your Stay program allows guests to curate their own holiday soundtrack using in-room Crosley turntables, playlists and the chance to borrow a Fender guitar.
The dining offerings are equally impressive. There is contemporary dining at Sessions, while the Elephant and The Butterfly presents Latin American-inspired cuisine in an idyllic oceanfront setting. Meanwhile, the Hard Rock Cafe offers all-American cuisine, live music, events, music memorabilia, and a Rock Shop.
The wellness facilities include a Body Rock fitness centre, a Rock Om program combining yoga and music, and Rock Spa, which features Rhythm and Motion, the world’s first fully immersive music-centre spa menu utilising amplified vibrations, pressures and patterns.
The architecture and interior design is a fusion of local Maldivian flavours and international elements. In addition, The Marina @ CROSSROADS features a PADI-certified Watersports & Dive Centre which offers underwater excursions and tours. There is also a Marine Discovery Centre and Maldives Discovery Centre, where guests can learn more about the resort's conservation programs and Maldivian culture.
