Hard Rock Hotel Maldives: Luxury Hospitality Icon in Tropical Paradise
For half a century, the famous Hard Rock Hotels has been spreading the timeless spirit of music and hospitality around the world. In whichever country the next hotel of the brand opens, it embodies the best features of the region’s culture, exquisitely interwoven with special energy and enthusiasm that makes it more than a place to stay. The outstanding Hard Rock Hotel Maldives is no exception, offering sophisticated guests a breathtaking combination of unparalleled paradisiacal scenery and out-of-this-world culture and memorabilia. This family-friendly resort has been recognized by tourists, and this year it was named a winner of the Luxury Lifestyle Awards in the category of Best Luxury Beachfront Resorts in Maldives.
Hard Rock Hotel Maldives was opened on September 1, 2019, as part of CROSSROADS Maldives, the country’s first multi-island, fully integrated leisure destination, and its largest lifestyle hub. The resort is also the 30th hotel in the renowned brand’s portfolio and its first hotel in the Maldives, bringing all the iconic features of Hard Rock International to the archipelago.
The resort is located on the Emboodhoo Lagoon in South Male Atoll, a 15-minute speedboat ride from Male International Airport. The island on which the resort is located is connected by a 500-foot bridge to the neighboring island on which is Saii Lagoon Maldives, also part of CROSSROADS Maldives.
