That the Maldives is a consumer dream of 10 out of 10 travelers is nothing new for anyone. That turquoise blue sea that touches the sky, overwater bungalows, powdery white sand and idyllic sunsets are the image of paradise on earth. Now tell me, do you think that a trip to the Maldives is a good fit only for honeymooners and romantic celebrations? Not at all! The Maldives has more than 120 hotels and I guarantee that you will find one that will fit perfectly with your profile and your moment in life.
One of the newest, liveliest, most artistic and photogenic hotels around is the Hard Rock Maldives. It opened its doors five months before the lockdown, on Emboodhoo Lagoon, a 20-minute boat ride from Velana International Airport. It has 178 spacious accommodations, contemporary decor, including one of those desirable bungalows surrounded by the blue sea where you can enjoy “The Sound of Your Stay” program by requesting a free Fender guitar or Crosley record player to enjoy your stay in the best musical style. Isn’t that great?
Another highlight is that the property is huge and welcomes families with children. No one will be bored. I guarantee it! The Hard Rock Maldives was built connected by bridges to SAii Lagoon (a Hilton group hotel) and the first Maldives Marina, in a multi-island entertainment complex, called CrossRoads. Altogether there are more than 10 restaurants available to guests. Highlights include Ministry of Crab voted one of the 50 best in Asia in 2019, the sensational Japanese Nihonbashi, and Steak House Carne Diem (which also serves divine mushrooms for the non-carnivores).
Besides that, there is a beautiful Beach Club, a pool with a water slide that kids go crazy for, a very complete nautical center, yoga classes, aerial arts, meditation, kick boxing, Jiu Jitsu, and a super Spa overlooking the sea. Not to mention that the complex’s beaches are beautiful and you can cycle everywhere.
Now pay attention to this tip: to close your trip with a golden key, ask for a floating breakfast by the pool of your bungalow and I guarantee that the experience will be unforgettable.
Go without fear. Hard Rock Maldives has adopted the Safe + Sound program with strict hygiene and safety protocols. Negative PCR is required for all guests prior to arrival. At this point there are few places where you can go with peace of mind. The Maldives are among the most isolated and remote destinations in the world, where each hotel is a universe in itself.
With this dream post, I wish you all a very blue week.
XoXo and see you next Tuesday,
