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.

I really don't know where to start, we spent Christmas and New Year at the hotel with a group of 11 and had the most amazing holiday ever. I couldn't pick one thing that I would change everything was perfect. Staff The staff at this hotel are the best staff I have ever seen in a hotel, every single staff member was polite and helpful. After a few days at the hotel the staff felt like friend's and we were very sad to say bye to them. Special thanks to Iqu who is one of the nicest people i have ever met, from day one he was always trying to help and make our holiday as perfect as it could be. Iqu will be a friend for life and we were extremely sad to say bye to him. Iqu is an absolute credit to the hotel and management, he is probably one of the main reasons we will return!! Madu and Richard were amazing and work extremely hard. They are super polite and nothing is too much trouble. All of the bar staff were amazing. Tammy (Roxity Kids Club) - The first time I met Tammy I instantly knew my daughter would love her, her personality is so warm, bubbly and caring and my daughter absolutely adored her. Tammy babysit my daughter and 1 year old son one evening (the hotel offers this service for a very reasonable price) and they had a great night. We look forward to seeing Tammy again when we return as my daughter misses her lots! Rebecca (Roxity Kids Club) - Wow Rebecca is so lovely and helpful. Rebecca babysat for my 1 year old on NYE which was a lovely treat for us. Nothing was to much trouble for her and she was amazing with my son. Roxity Kids Club The best kids club I have ever seen in a hotel and my daughter loved every single minute spent there, thank you to all the kids club staff they were all truly amazing!! Restaurants Lots of restaurants to choose from and every single meal we had was excellent. The sea is breathtaking and walking along the bridge in the evenings was very special seeing all the fish, sharks and stingrays. I would highly recommend this hotel you will not be disappointed.

The location is very nice, à real paradise with water bungaloos and blue crystaline water everywhere. The staff is very polite and helpful. Food and beverages are high quality standards. My bad points are : - all nautical activities are chargeable : you have to pay for windsurfing, snorkling hobbie cats etc and it is quite exenpensive ! - the kitesurfing teacher was unavailable, so no kitedurfing lesson was possible... we werent aware of that When we booked - bjj lessons isnt free, You have to pay additionnal fees In conclusion, very nice hotel but expensive. If you only want to lay down on your towel and read a book, its all right. If you want more, You have to double your budget. Read less

An amazing place, full of interesting toys, activities and managed by staff with real skills in discussion and interact with kinds. In each day were planed different activities which kept the kids in a continuous curiosity and discovery new things around the kids club and hotel area. Even if the kids (especially the younger ones) did not speak or understand English at a fluent level, they manage to do their activities and enjoy the time spent in the kids club. Thanks to all team and specially to Rebeca for her kind attention Read less
