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.

Well, where to begin? I honestly couldn’t recommend this hotel enough. We were met at the airport and taken on the speedboat to the most beautiful resort. There, we met Sato, who practically acted like a butler our whole stay. Sato could not have been more helpful when it came to making dinner reservations etc, he was in touch with us at least once per day and it made all the difference, instead of having to trek up to reception to ask a question. On the first night we attended the karaoke night ran by Ben-G who couldn’t have been more entertaining and helpful throughout our entire stay. It was a really fun night and despite being on a red eye flight and having no sleep, we didn’t get back to our villa until 1:30am! The villa was something like I have never seen. We had never been to the Maldives before so didn’t have much to compare it to but it was absolutely breathtaking. I actually cried when I first saw it!!! The food and drinks on offer could not have been better. With the all inclusive package, you have access to the restaurants across both resorts (Hard Rock and Saii) and the Crossroads. It honestly felt nothing like all inclusive. Except for the breakfast which was a buffet, each restaurant was A La Carte with incredible table service and the food was PERFECT. I would recommend trying as many of the restaurants you can, but in particular Miss Olive Oyl, Mr Tomyam and the Hard Rock were amazing for dinner. Lunch was lovely at the Elephant and Butterfly. Big shout out to Carlton for being so accommodating and caring at all times. You can really tell when staff care about the guests experience, and this really showed with the Hard Rock staff. If choosing between Saii and Hard Rock I would 100% go for the hard rock as the resort and rooms just seem slightly more modern. I would also recommend booking the private dolphin tour ($300) which absolutely made our holiday. Again, this was the most amazing place we have ever been and we cannot wait to return again soon. Thank you so much! Read less

We love them so much. We are now fans and more than that, we can remember them like friends. We enjoyed every every night that we saw them playing. You guys ROCK! It really felt like a Hard Rock hotel and cafe! They made our stay more perfect! If you are planning to go there, you shouldn’t miss them playing. For sure it will be fun! And you can ask any song, i’m sure they will do their best to sing it! Thanks Bien! Hope to see you the next time we go there!!! Every resort should have a band like that!!! Read less
