First integrated resort in the Maldives set to open June 2019
Hard Rock Hotel Maldives and SAii Lagoon Maldives, Curio Collection by Hilton bring a new era of hospitality this summer as part of the multi-island CROSSROADS Maldives Project…
CROSSROADS Maldives is excited to announce that it will be welcoming guests from June 2019, set to be the first integrated multi-island resort destination of the island nation. As part of the pioneering concept, this summer, the destination will see the highly anticipated opening of Hard Rock Hotel Maldives and SAii Lagoon Maldives, Curio Collection by Hilton.
Located just 15 minutes by speedboat from the Velana International Airport, the island destination will also consist of a luxurious 30-berth yacht marina and world-class facilities, including Koimala and Maalimi’s Junior Beach Club and Camp, Watersports & Dive Centre and CROSSROADS Event Hall. The project will be proud host to a Maldives Discovery Centre and Marine Discovery Centre, pioneering the education of guests of all ages about the surrounding wildlife and inspiring its conservation. Abundant with retail outlets and extensive dining choices, CROSSROADS welcomes day visitors as well as travellers with long layovers looking to soak up the last of the sunshine before the journey home. Guests can simply hop on a boat transfer from the airport to enjoy its facilities.
At the heart of the Emboodhoo Lagoon, Hard Rock Hotel Maldives will inject music-infused energy, engaging experiences and feel-good vibes into the Maldives. The resort will fuse tropical atmosphere and contemporary design, topped with curated music memorabilia and a regionally inspired twist. 178 expansive family suites, chic beach villas and unspoilt one and two-bedroom overwater villas lie in wait, alongside show-stopping activities and brand-signature amenities that will bring the signature Hard Rock experience to the Maldivian atolls.
From Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and beachfront Yoga, to jam sessions, there is something for all ages at Hard Rock Hotel Maldives. Young children can join the Hard Rock Roxity Kids ClubTM mini circus, experience an introduction to music, or perform for parents in the hotel’s RoxStars Show. Young adults are welcome at the Teen Spirit Club, whisking budding adventurers away on watersports excursions, leading sports competitions along the beach and hosting live jamming sessions. Both young and adult guests can engage in aerial arts, learn to juggle, trapeze, aerial hoop, jungle gym and more.
Groups and families are spoilt for choice, from delectable Pan-Latin cuisine at The Elephant and The Butterfly, to American favourites at Hard Rock Cafe Maldives. Guests can watch the expert chefs jam to music as they treat their taste buds at Sessions, take in mesmerising views of the lagoon accompanied with light bites at The Elephant and The Butterfly Pool Bar, or enjoy a more private in-villa dining experience.
Signature Hard Rock amenities at the resort are set to create a bustling atmosphere with something for everyone. Guests are invited to channel their inner rock star with The Sound of Your Stay® music program, offering complimentary use of Fender guitars and Crosley record players for in-room jam sessions, complete with an amp and headphones. The hotel will also feature Hard Rock’s infamous Rock Om® in-room yoga programme, and a renowned full-service Rock Spa®, offering a variety of treatments including our signature Rhythm and Motion experiences. There will also be two on-site Rock Shops® selling all brand merchandise.
Opening in June, SAii Lagoon Maldives, Curio Collection by Hilton will offer guests something different, with a personalised journey from start to finish. Upon arrival, guests are welcomed with the chance to create their own bathroom amenities using natural ingredients from the resort’s Aroma Lab, a place to synchronise with the resort’s signature scents of Relaxation, Refreshment, Rejuvenation and Energy. An Aroma Specialist is on hand to explain the benefits of each scent and the precise techniques used to mix the ingredients. Using this knowledge, guests then are able to handpick from a selection of twelve scents, including cedarwood, lavender and rosemary, combining several of these to create their own delectable bathroom amenities. Once guests are settled, they are invited to drop by Snap: Snack Box and pick up complimentary refreshments.
198 spacious guestrooms, beach villas and overwater villas are dotted across the tropical island, surrounded by al fresco spaces, spacious interiors and personalised comforts, all created with an eclectic yet artisanal touch. Located within walking distance to The Marina @ CROSSROADS, the resort is ideal for families, couples or friends looking for a unique escape.
SAii Lagoon Maldives will also be home to a plethora of dining options, from gourmet breakfast at Café del Mar to lunch and dinner at Thai-Italian fusion restaurant, Mr. Tomyam, and all-day dining at Miss Olive Oyl Restaurant, taking inspiration from the flavours of the Mediterranean land and sea. Tempting treats are available around the clock from bean/Co, serving a selection of delicious bites and artisanal coffee. For continued indulgence, guests can treat themselves to poolside tropical cocktails at Miss Olive Oyl Pool Bar or share a quiet moment with private beach dining.
