Hard Rock Hotel Maldives

Maldives, Indian Ocean

The hotel

The Hard Rock name has hit the Maldives, bringing its inimitable chillout scene to the ultimate laidback location. A new concept in the Maldives, it’s more than just barefoot luxury and days of sunbathing, swimming, and snorkelling (although there’s plenty of that too). A footbridge links you to the Marina @ CROSSROADS, where a Hard Rock Café, Café del Mar, and duty-free retail and dining village await. And, being a Hard Rock hotel, you’ll also find VIP-worthy treats in store, like Rock Spa® treatments, super-chic eateries, and exclusive ‘Sound of Your Stay’ music moments, including complimentary use of Fender guitars and Crosley turntables — all just 15 minutes speedboat ride from the airport.

Stunning island! Forms part of a marina with 3 hotel islands attached. Friendly and helpful staff kept the place running like clockwork. We were here amidst the COVID 19 outbreak and the staff remained vigilant with regards to sanitizers and changing cutlery often. We were updated frequently and it didn’t compromise our stay. There is Lots to do on this island! Water sports Centre, daily activities like yoga, Jiu jitsu, volleyball/soccer etc. We stayed in a beautiful beach side villa. 10m from the crystal clear water. The food was good, breakfast had an incredible variety and was tasty! We got engaged here and would recommend staying here! Read less

We were there for 4 days and had such an amazing time. Everyone was helpful and taking their time to make sure you are having a great time. The FO Manager, Marty, went out of his way to make sure we were taken care of after we had some problems with the Duty Manager ( who does not understand his role as duty manager and how to deal with his guests) and was not capable of dealing with our predicament of our missing luggage. I enjoy beach holidays very much and have been to Bali, Langkawi, and many more, but Maldives is in a different class of it’s own. If you are planning a Maldives holiday, I highly recommend the Hard Rock hotel Maldives, l like to thank everyone at the hotel for making our time there a memorable one. Thank you HR Maldives, you are the best. Al Read less
