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.

As a mother of a three year old daughter, I was hesitant to travel so far for a vacation that I felt I couldn't enjoy to the fullest extent if I had to always carry around with a toddler. Thanks to the kids club at the Hard Rock Hotel, I was able to participate in activities that I would not have otherwise, and the only part of the day that my daughter did not like was when I picked her up from kid's club. She would literally cry because she wouldn't want to leave. Rebecca, Tammy, Lauren, Alyson, and Sam, to name a few went above and beyond to make my daughter's 3.5 weeks stay an adventure I believe she will never forget. She got to do it all: paddle boating, arts and crafts, swimming, gymnastics, arial arts, treasure hunting, modeling, make many friends, and the list goes on! At our departure, we felt like we were leaving our new family behind. Read less

I wanted to give a very warm “thank you” to Hard Rock Sous Chef Kareem who hails from Beni-Mellal, Morocco.

I wanted to give a very warm “thank you” to Hard Rock Sous Chef Kareem who hails from Beni-Mellal, Morocco. 

 Before I elaborate about Kareem: I am a part of a large flight-crew that is staying here. I have traveled extensively throughout the world. I am the type of individual who does not usually take the time to leave comments at the places I go because life is fast paced in aviation and time is precious. 
I felt it necessary this instance to step out of my normal “modus operandi” to tell you travelers out there about Kareem!

 About Kareem: in the past never have I experienced a Chef (with such a large staff) coming out night after night to speak with guests to garner their feedback on the meal that they have before them. Kareem deeply cares about guest comfort and knows that if their palette is satisfied it goes a long way to make that comfort meter register all 5 stars. I appreciate him being so personable and willing to engage directly with the people enjoying his food. In short, I appreciate his customer focus!
 He takes all feedback with class, and as a diner watching the goins-on around me it is refreshing to see his level of passion and proactiveness for the culinary arts.

 Thank you Kareem for being a highlight to me and my team there at Hard Rock Hotel Maldives. -Andrew United States of America Read less

It’s our 2d time on Maldives, but 1st here. We were really worried about the trip itself due to the current rules, tests, etc. But everything went smoothly! We were so happy to go abroad after being at home for a year! Although last time we were in Niyama (which is thought to be more luxurious), we adored the concept of HR hotel. Everyone is on chill and having rest even if at work. We’ve immediately become friends with all the band and it felt like a cool camp with your besties. The atmosphere is extremely relaxing! Food was also amazing, as well as the room and, of course, SEA! Great great thanks to these guys especially: Bob, Shingie, Tholaal, Fajja, Andy, Santose, Yusuf, Adam, Munhid, Lois, Chaya, Kuday, Shabbu, Mustaqueem, Kumar, Oggy, Rishi, Chicky, Asela, John, Darya, Tina We wanna come backkkkkk! Love u, HR ♡ Read less
