Hard Rock Hotel Maldives on track for autumn 2018 opening

International lifestyle brand Hard Rock will open its first hotel in Indian Ocean island nation the Maldives this autumn. The Hard Rock Hotel Maldives will debut alongside a signature Hard Rock Cafe on 1 October 2018 as part of the first phase of the Emboodhoo Lagoon multi-island resort project, which broke ground last year.

The first-of-its kind integrated resort destination will boast 178 guestrooms, family suites, beach villas and one and two-bedroom overwater villas. Inspired by local Maldivian culture, Hard Rock Hotel Maldives will infuse contemporary design features with tropical architecture throughout the property, alongside regionally-inspired, authentic music memorabilia.

The beachside hotel will provide guests with exclusive brand offerings and amenities, including The Sound of Your Stay music programme, offering complimentary use of Fender guitars and Crosley record players for in-room jam sessions, as well as a renowned full-service Rock Spa, a Rock Shop selling all brand merchandise, Roxity Kids Club and Teen Spirit Club.

Located within one of the country’s largest lagoons, Emboodhoo Falhu, the new hotel will be accessed via a 20-minute speedboat ride from the airport. As part of the first phase of the multi-million pound Emboodhoo Lagoon multi-island development, the Hard Rock Hotel Maldives will be one of three resorts situated alongside world-class entertainment, retail and fine dining offerings.

Just steps from the hotel, the new Hard Rock Cafe Maldives will offer authentic American cuisine in a music-themed diner decked out with memorabilia. With direct boat transportation from the airport, the Hard Rock Cafe Maldives will provide around 185 seats both indoors and outdoors while offering diners exclusive beach access.

Hard Rock International’s head of global hotel development Todd Hricko said:

“Known for its vibrant culture, top-of-the-line luxury and some of the most breathtaking white-sand beaches in the world, Maldives is truly a slice of paradise and one of the world's most desirable destinations.

“Traditionally regarded as being a popular honeymoon destination, we at Hard Rock are excited to work with the Singha Estate team to captivate multi-generational travellers, showcasing that the destination can cater to more than just newlyweds.”

With venues in 74 countries, including 179 cafes and 11 casinos, this will be the 25th hotel in Hard Rock International’s rapidly-expanding portfolio.
