Hard Rock Expands into the Maldives - Family Traveller (USA)

Hard Rock International announced it will open Hard Rock Hotel Maldives and Hard Rock Cafe Maldives in October 1, 2018, providing travelers with the ultimate, family-friendly Maldivian experience.

The highly anticipated property will be located within one of the Maldives' largest lagoons, Emboodhoo Falhu, a 20-minute speedboat ride from the airport. 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 hotel will feature a full-service Rock Spa, a Rock Shop selling all brand merchandise, Roxity Kids Club and Teen Spirit Club, as well as on-site food and beverage options, ranging from a Pool Bar and all-day dining, to a Beach Grill restaurant and in-villa dine experience.

Just steps from the hotel, guests will enjoy authentic American cuisine amidst the ultimate rock atmosphere at Hard Rock Cafe Maldives. With direct boat transportation from the airport and situated within the Emboodhoo Lagoon development, Hard Rock Cafe Maldives will provide approximately 185 seats both indoors and outdoors while offering diners exclusive beach access.

The new resort is one of three new resorts included in the Maldives' $311.5-million investment to bring more tourism to the island. Traditionally popular for honeymooners, the island is hoping to provide more reasons for families to visit, beginning with the Hard Rock Hotel.
