Situated across the Emboodhoo lagoon, the music-infused hotel boasts 178 guestrooms, ranging from beach villas and family suites to one and two-bedroom overwater villas.
"Hard Rock Hotel Maldives offers the beauty and serenity of the destination perfectly paired with the lifestyle and energy that only the Hard Rock brand can deliver," said Dale Hipsh, senior vice president of Hard Rock Hotels. "We're excited to showcase the property's unique experience and signature brand amenities to locals and visitors from around the world."
Offering a variety of dining options, Hard Rock Hotel Maldives appeals to all appetites with a variety of food and beverage offerings, including the brand signature Sessions, where diners are treated to a world of contemporary flavors with indoor and outdoor seating, while The Elephant and The Butterfly presents Latin American-inspired cuisine in a picturesque oceanfront setting. Just steps away, the Hard Rock Cafe at the Marina @ CROSSROADS offers world-famous, all-American cuisine, live music, events and music memorabilia.
Inspired by local Maldivian culture, Hard Rock Hotel Maldives infuses contemporary design features with tropical architecture throughout the property, alongside regionally-inspired, authentic music memorabilia, including items from regional sensations Chun Xioa and Khun Asanee Chotikul, as well as international superstars like Shakira and Justin Timberlake. Unique to this hotel, the two-bedroom Silver Family Suite allows parents and kids to stay together in style with bunk beds and direct beach access, while the 4,950 square foot Rock Star Villa features spacious outdoor living areas, an infinity pool, a tuk-tuk bar on the terrace, panoramic ocean views and even a private boat jetty.
The hotel entices guests with an array of signature brand offerings and amenities, including The Sound of Your Stay® music program, where the mood can be set with a complimentary Crosley turntable or rock out in their room with a Fender guitar, reserved at the front desk complete with headphones for no noise complaints. There is also the revolutionary Rock Om in-room yoga program, allowing for guests to relax, refresh and find their zen. Additionally, the property offers a Rock Shop® selling all brand merchandise, and a Roxity Kids Club® and Teen Spirit® Club for guests ages three -17, as well as a full-service Rock Spa®, featuring Rhythm & Motion® – the world's first fully immersive music-centric spa menu utilizing amplified vibrations, pressures and patterns, as the foundation of its treatments. This groundbreaking experience takes guests on a rhythmic massage journey — bass vibrations ripple through the massage table as treble beats come from above, sending pulses through the body and leaving guests feeling energized and invigorated.
Through music appreciation and an imaginative environment, Hard Rock Hotels & Casinos delivers products for the varied aspects of life — work, play and personal sanctuary.
