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.

Best food made available at hard rock sessions by Indian chef Piyush, made us feel like home food taste Made our favourite dishes with the resources available with him. He even prepared the dishes which were not available in menu on our special request. Everything here is perfect

How to describe our stay at Hard Rock Hotel Resort Maldives? One word…EXCEPTIONAL! Smiling faces and warm welcomes from our arrival on the boat to our tearful departure (that’s right, my wife actually had a tear in her eye). Where to start… Shout outs to the staff: Diana at reception and welcome introduction on our first day. Mr Oggy kept it going with my first coffee every morning. Juma at Elephant and Butterfly (try the chicken Cubano for lunch!) was super welcoming on our first day. Yazoo, Rinshi and Dhabey and Hyman at breakfast and lunch. Great service, great smiles. Great interactions. Dood at Hard Rock Cafe is hilarious. Be sure to check out their live band—awesome! Moving and grooving with water aerobics and Zumba every morning with Jenny and Amanda. And I don’t even do that stuff. !!!!!! Our last night, our room cleaning crew (Demhu, AAlimuttey, and Hamitte) left the greatest art piece depicting the island made from palm leaves and native flowers and covered the entire bed. Well done guys! Iku and Ben G and Carlton have a fine running team. I don’t know how they keep up with everyone but they don’t miss a beat. Such fine detail to their guests’ happiness and comfort! Gold Beachside villa was our private little piece of the beach to relax. I recommend the all inclusive upgrade. The snorkeling just outside our door was excellent! Multiple restaurants to enjoy: two at the hotel and several others are all within easy walking distance! Or ask for a buggy! The Bartenders at the pool bar were a special crew - Shuau (shoowah), Madu , Kumar , Rao , and Gopi were always on the spot. The scuba diving was the best…big thanks to Shinee at Crossroads Dive Center. Read less
