When at Hard Rock Hotel Maldives, life’s mellifluous tunes ring through the premises. Be it loud or quiet—this tropical destination is sure to suit every discerning traveller. When here, enjoy immersive experiences–from a day of quietude at the spa, wild dancing and singing at the beach, or simply a lazy day of doing nothing amid beautiful lagoons. In each, let zero guilt guide the way.
Located at a short 15-minute speedboat ride away from Velana International Airport, Hard Rock Hotel Maldives features 178 vibrant and spacious guest rooms, including family suits, beach villas, and one- and two-bedroom overwater villas. As the island-nation’s first integrated resort destination, the hotel seeks its inspiration from local culture, tropical architecture infused with contemporary design features, and regionally-inspired music memorabilia.
A cut above the rest, the dining options at Hard Rock Hotel Maldives are always amped up! Hop on the waterslide from the reception to the pool and straight to the swim-up Pool Bar for snacks, craft beers, cocktails, and more. For a more elevated dining experience, the indoor-outdoor restaurant Sessions—which serves international cuisine with panoramic lagoon views—awaits. For burgers stacked as tall as the resort’s vinyl collection and delicious American foods, stop by at Hard Rock Cafe® Maldives; or head to The Elephant and The Butterfly for pan Latin and Mexican food. To explore more chart-topping restaurant, scurry along across the Emboodhoo Lagoon and dig in.
After basking in the tropical sun, indulge the senses and escape with signature spa treatments at the legendary Rock Spa®. Tagged as the world’s first immersive music-centric spa, it utilises amplified vibrations, pressures, and patterns as the foundations of its treatments. When here, experience a musical twist on classic spa services at one of the four private oceanfront treatment rooms. Little ones, too, can pamper themselves to treatments specially designed for them.
