The first integrated resort in the Maldives is set to open this June – introducing CROSSROADS Maldives…
Exciting news for any couples seeking the ultimate honeymoon destination, we may just have found it! Welcoming guests from June 2019, CROSSROADS Maldives is set to be the first integrated multi-island resort destination of the island nation, located just 15 minutes by speedboat from the Velana International Airport.
The island destination will see the highly anticipated opening of Hard Rock Hotel Maldives and SAii Lagoon Maldives, Curio Collection by Hilton, as well a luxurious 30-berth yacht marina. The resort will also boast 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.
CROSSROADS will be abundant with retail outlets and extensive dining choices too, welcoming day visitors and long-stay guests alike.
When it comes to the accommodation, the incredible new Hard Rock Hotel Maldives will be at the heart of the Emboodhoo Lagoon, offering 178 expansive family suites, chic beach villas and one and two-bedroom overwater villas. As well as contemporary design and first-class amenities, there will be a host of activities on offer such as Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and beachfront Yoga. Meanwhile, children can be kept entertained at Hard Rock Roxity Kids ClubTM, or the Teen Sprit Club is ideal for young adults – perfect if you’re planning a family-moon!
You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to eating out too, with Pan-Latin cuisine on offer at The Elephant and The Butterfly or American favourites at Hard Rock Cafe Maldives. Alternatively, guests can watch the expert chefs jam to music as they treat their taste buds at Sessions, or enjoy a more private in-villa dining experience.
We love the sound of the signature Hard Rock amenities, for something a little different, such as 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 their signature Rhythm and Motion experiences. There will also be two on-site Rock Shops®selling all brand merchandise.
Alternatively, you could stay at the SAii Lagoon Maldives, Curio Collection by Hilton, with 198 spacious guestrooms, beach villas and overwater villas, dotted across the tropical island, surrounded by al fresco spaces, spacious interiors and personalised comforts.
Upon arrival, guests are welcomed with the chance to create their own bathroom amenities using natural ingredients from the resort’s Aroma Lab, with an Aroma Specialist is on hand to explain the benefits of each scent and the precise techniques used to mix the ingredients. Once guests are settled, they are invited to drop by Snap: Snack Box and pick up complimentary refreshments. Sounds dreamy, right?
SAii Lagoon Maldives will also offer a range of dining options, from gourmet breakfast at Café del Mar to lunch and dinner at Thai-Italian fusion restaurant, Mr. Tomyam. All-day dining will be available at mediterranean-inspired Miss Olive Oyl Restaurant, and delicious bites and artisanal coffee will be served round the clock at bean/Co. We love the sound of the private beach dining option, for a romantic honeymoon experience.
