Hard Rock Maldives is part of the multi-islands concept Crossroads Maldives, a man-made miracle of reclaimed islands only 15 minutes boat-ride from Male Airport. The design is truly holistic from shaping the reclaimed island to master planning, architecture and interior design. The island shape maximises beach frontages and addresses coastal wave concerns. Coral preservation areas are respected with the island reclamation skirting outside the fringes of the coral zones. Hard Rock Hotel’s brand DNA celebrates music and what it stands for. Translated to design, the resort strives to achieve a non-static spontaneous experience. The resort centre and reception appear to sit atop of a hill, looking like a single storey structure with a storey below as the resort’s main restaurant and pool at beach level. For the playful and adventurous, a slide connects these two levels. The program of the resort offers high and low energy facilities from the young to the adults. Accommodations are varied from suites to villas. Whilst the use of colours and shapes in the interior reflects the energy of the brand’s DNA, material selection takes care of wear and stress from the tropical climate.
