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, Beach Club, 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.

Nice, new modern hotel. Huge pool. We enjoyed our stay in the overwater villa. The island is quite spacious. Proximity to the airport in Male. There are many activities throughout the day. Great staff. Special thanks to Shabbu, Mustaqeem, Shingie, Mahudhee from the session restaurant, and Marty from the front desk.

My son had a ball of a time at the ROXCITY KIDS CLUB... I can go back again just for that. A Special thanks to Sam and Tamy for their great efforts. You ROCK. Instructor for aerial arts, volleyball, aqua aerobics was fabulous!! ROOM can't be better FOOD was very expensive and average tasting with not a great service. No reservations should be required for in house guests. Every time we went to a restaurant in the resort, we were asked if we had a reservation and not given a table even when most tables were vacant. Guest should be able to eat without reservation. No consideration was given even to our starving kid after a full day of travel. JUST MAKE IT FIRST COME FIRST SERVE BASIS FOR IN HOUSE GUESTS AT SESSIONS AND LELPHANT AND BUTTERFLY, if not at restaurants at the Marina. Pathetic buggy service. Pool could be much cleaner Service can be more prompt No reef and marine life Read less

We went to Hard Rock Maldives for a leisure stay along with family and friends. Property is excellent and picturesque. It is on a island and hence it has beaches all around it. Rooms are big and cosy for romantic couple but are not kids friendly. We stayed for two nights in Silver sky studio and for one night at Platinum water villa with pool. Check-in process is smooth but we have to wait for for check-in as two rooms were allotted on time and rest two were allotted late. The hotel has many restaurants and they serve all the different types of cuisine. But as we needed Indian vegetarian food we had only two options left Sessions and Kebab & Curry. Special mention to Outstanding chef Piyush Sharma as he served us very good Indian food at Sessions. Thanks to Chef Amrit as well for serving us delicious punjabi omelettes. If you need something Yusuf is the guy at sessions and Muamil at reception who will help you out. And when you need some fun and banter Mustakeem is the guy at pavilion and sessions. Guys go and enjoy at Hard Rock as the BAND will take good care of you. Thanks to the Band, Ravi Patwa Read less
