Astonishing views, friendly customer-oriented staff, delicious food, high quality service and amazing atmosphere overall have made our stay memorable for our family. When selecting the hotel we had some considerations: apart from picturesque sights and beaches Maldives are famous for, we wanted the place to offer some variety of food, activities, places, as we are a family who love to try new experiences. And, of course, we expected to have good service. This place exceeded our expectations as we received much more than that! First of all, this is about people - the staff here are immensely open, friendly and helpful. Our special thanks go to Carlton, Food & Beverages Manager, who is a true role model of superior guest care. There was hardly any restaurant guest who was deprived of his generous attention. Our 5-year-old daughter enjoyed every conversation and used to treat him as her good friend! Another bunch of thanks go to all Kids Club staff we met during our stay – Tammy, Sama, Raai, Sam and Elvie! The guys are so engaging and inspiring that our daughter would only return to the place to visit Roxity Kids Club😊 There was a number of fun and developmental activities kids really enjoyed and felt happy about. Enormous thanks to everyone! There are nice stylish restaurants offering a great variety of quality food options so that everyone could pick up something up to own preferences. What is also appreciated - all restaurants have kids’ menu. There’s a good choice of drinks and cocktails, there was always a delicious cocktail of the day at the pool bar. We had All Inclusive and I believe this is the best you can do. Anyway, you could always order something special on top or visit the restaurant which is excluded from All Inclusive. What we also enjoyed is the overall atmosphere of the place. You could enjoy good music everywhere you go in the main area of the resort at any time. If you want silence you can have it in the room (though not everywhere, we lived in the water villa facing the main buildings and pool area, so loud night performances were still heard, though it wasn’t disturbing to us). We loved live music shows in the Hard Rock Café, the band performed popular hits of different genres and they really sounded great! The territory of the resort is huge if to consider also another resort and Marina Crossroads area you could reach across the bridge. Sometimes we even used buggy service to get to or from the restaurants to save time walking long distances or avoid heat exposure. Everywhere you go you feel as if you are in paradise – the beauty of the resort and the colors of the ocean are astonishing! I highly recommend Hard Rock Maldives – this unique magnificent resort is definitely worth returning! The warmest regards, Oleg, Natalia and Vicky

Hotel's Favourite
What can i say about hard rock, amaizing place, staf food and service. This was my second time in Maldives. This time with my little girl 1 and half old. I was worried about the cause of the covid pandemic but once we arrived we relaxed completely because everything was very safe and all protection measures observed in the smallest detail. So from this point of view you don't have to worry about going to hard rock on the contrary during this period the prices are very good and the planes have enough free seats and everything is well organized. The second fear was how I will deal with the food of the ferrite which is very capricious and usually eats only blended. Thanks to the chefs especially karim had fresh food made every day as i wanted. hard rock services for children and babies are the best we have met and we travel with the little one from 6 months . You have everything you need both in the room and in the common areas, activities for children and the staff is very attentive. We had booked 15 nights and we ended up extending it to a month so much we liked it. we wanted to extend two more weeks but because of the flight we had to leave but in march we will definitely return for at least a month with the whole family. Why do we like hard rock so much: -everything is very new, very clean, and well maintained. -Extraordinary food with many options between the 12 restaurants. chefs karim and alesio prepared us some delicious special menus whenever we wanted. -services of the highest class, whatever we asked for babies or for us we received even if they had to be brought from another country, which I find incredible.One ex: I ran out of cigarette heets and they brought me from Dubai. -whether you want to relax or you are an active person you can find what to do, we admired the sunset at sunset ritual, we walked on the bridge that leads to the marina admiring shark fish and sea cats. beach volleyball competitions, pool activities and good mood from hard rock cafe we ​​already miss. -Room, I had the platinum overwater villa which was wow. We enjoyed our pool and the ocean which were always warm. All rooms are equipped with everything you need, you can choose movies, children's programs, music and sound bar, bath products and personal grooming. -great staff, good people who made us feel part of a big family, I have no words to thank everyone especially Tolga and Mufyd for all the support throughout the stay. Miss you guys and I hope to see you again in March, Besnea family

My wife and I just ended a three-night stay in an over-water pool villa at the Hard Rock Hotel. Our experience was nothing short of superb! The Hard Rock is a short speedboat ride from Male Airport (20 minutes or so). The resort itself is gorgeous, and it has a fun vibe that one would expect from a Hard Rock property. It's quite new, and the details show that the Hard Rock is "future proof". In the room/villa, televisions include on-demand movies and TV shows, as well as a seemingly endless supply of music. The Internet speed is solid, at around 6mbps, and it was reliable most of the time. (We only had to use our backup mobile data once while working from the resort, and mobile data speeds were excellent.) Amenities include a beautiful pool, a spa, and a great little gym. Rock from various sub-genres and eras seems to follow you wherever you walk. If we had wanted, we could've stayed in our villa the entire visit and absolutely loved it! The bathroom in this category of room has a luxurious bathtub with sea views, a rain shower, and his/hers sinks. The bed was comfortable and fitted with high-end linens. There is even an option to request a turntable and records, which we took advantage of, although not all of the album covers had LPs inside. 

The highlight of the villa, of course, is the infinity plunge pool looking out over turquoise water. We spent quite a bit of time out there just enjoying the serenity. Something rare for Maldives resorts that you get at the Hard Rock is access to many restaurants. Since the Hard Rock is connected by foot bridges to Crossroads (a shopping and dining island) and Saii Lagoon (a Hilton property on its own island), guests can enjoy seven dining options, including Thai, Japanese, seafood, Mediterranean, and the famed Hard Rock Cafe itself. Breakfast at Sessions was full of options that rotated daily. We opted for the full-board package, which covered all our meals. (Since we were working for two of the days, we opted out of a drinks package and paid for any drinks we had.) At first we thought this would save us money, but to get the value out of the package, one should eat an appetizer, a main course, and a dessert at every meal. In the end, despite the inflated meal prices one would expect on a private island, we probably would’ve saved some by just ordering a-la-carte, since we couldn’t possibly eat a large three-course meal every time. As you can see from other reviews, the staff at Hard Rock are fantastic! Tourists in the Maldives are among the most demanding people I’ve encountered, sometimes putting impossible expectations on staff. Despite this, the international staff at the Hard Rock Hotel strive for excellence and provide just that with a smile. I’d particularly like to give a shout out to Lily in the hotel shop, Sajja and Fatthi at reception, and Hamid, the manager. They went out of their way to make our stay especially memorable. We were already planning on visiting the Maldives for years to come, but now we plan on coming back to the Hard Rock time and again. I can’t recommend this property enough.

To clarify from the beginning, there were 3 criteria for choosing the place for upcoming vacation on Maldives – 1) proximity to the airport - transfer to Hard Rock Hotel took 15 min on a speed boat (so no additional flights), 2) hotel of 5 stars with all the facilities appropriate to the level, 3) hotel should occupy the big area, better few islands, to make sure we have a possibility to “change the picture”. Sea – what is really great on Maldives - is the beach all around. In Hard Rock Hotel you even have 3 islands with beaches around, so you can choose your favorite one. Big beach towels (no “card system”, you can change it to the new very fast), always available sunbeds everywhere, the beaches are cleaned every morning by the staff. Room – we lived in Silver Beach Room (we initially didn’t want separate villa, in order to have easy and fast access to the beach). The location and room itself was quiet, first floor and 50 meters from the bed to the sea (oh, was my dream!). The room is big and comfortable for 2+1 persons, inside and outside shower (was popular for child). Compliments from the hotel at the arrival. I read some feedbacks about cleanness in the room – we have no claims, it was regular, always clean, new towels, water replenishment, etc. Food – amazing breakfasts, really unexpected. Even sparkling wine was served every morning, with different type of cheese, fruits, and other toppings. Food is different, the menu is made wisely, so you can easily change the meal kit. For lunch and dinner you can visit many different restaurants at the island – at your choice, Asian or American cuisine, seafood or steak house. We took FB (full board), so many restaurants was free for us, for others – was pre-paid deposit, what was also very smart and friendly to guests. Food for Kids is totally enough, soups, fish / chicken, morning porridge, omelets, etc. Staff – they meet and see you off with their big Band, very prompt in support and questions, always friendly and calm, ready for any specific request  There are also 2 Russian girls in the Team (good for guests with “no English"). What is cool – staff is communicating via WhatsApp so the dialogues and support are very fast. Overall, the whole team is so friendly to guests, with real willingness to help you, so each problem can be fixed very fast. Animation – for adults: thematic evenings, concerts, live music or disco every day, many restaurants with different cuisine at different price level, for kids: daily animation schedule will help to organize your day (if needed), many activities at kids club from art master-classes to games, and multi-national mix of kids will help to practice English. As a cherry on the top – bicycles (on a sharing base, but it’s cool), water slide for kids (worked better than professional animator :)), hookah (for those who understands). The Hotel is new (not tired as many ones on Maldives), opened in 2019, so you feel this young spirit every step. Of course, each perception is based on personal expectations. But I would say, it’s optimal price-quality ratio for your rest.

Truly a paradise - beautiful and brand new - and a short boat ride from the airport. We were a big family of 11 so lots of different needs - and Carlton and his team handled everything flawlessly. The overwater rooms were large and spacious and set up was perfect for family parties at night and swimming off the room during the day. Carlton is the Food & Bev manager and he and his team made our stay perfect and amazing. Carlton organized a magical dinner on the beach - the kids even had their own table - and the food the Chefs prepared was memorable and delicious. Carlton and his team went above and beyond even to the point of arranging excursions, dinners outside the resort on the island restaurants and photographers for family photos. Spa was amazing - kids absolutely loved kids club as well. We really were spoiled during our entire stay - great job HRH team - thank you Carlton - we will definitely be back. And soon.
