Crossroads, Maldives’ first integrated tourist destination, opens
First phase of Crossroads Maldives, the first integrated tourist destination in the Maldives, has opened.
Crossroads, a deeply sustainable development owned by Thailand’s leading developer Singha Estate, encompasses nine idyllic islands fringing the Emboodhoo Lagoon in the South Male Atoll. Three of the islands have been used as the first phase of the project, encompassing two resorts, as well as The Marina @ Crossroads — an 800-metre lifestyle area and beach walk which features retail, entertainment and dining outlets.
Since a perfect vacation is not complete without one-of-a-kind dining experiences, Crossroads has brought a vibrant and dynamic dining experience to the Maldives with an expansive selection that caters to both local and foreign visitors alike. The destination houses not only local restaurants, which showcase authentic Maldivian cuisine, but also a number of world-famous restaurants serving international dishes, including Hard Rock Café Maldives, Ministry of Crab, and Nihonbashi, to name a few.
Wherever they come from, guests of all ages can expect to be blown away by the exciting retail and dining experience waiting for them at Crossroads.
Phase one of the integrated destination also features two lifestyle hotels, SAii Lagoon Maldives and Hard Rock Hotel Maldives, both of which have direct access to the extensive facilities at The Marina @ Crossroads. These include a 30-berth marina, the Junior Beach Club and Camp, the Crossroads Event Hall, the Maldives Discovery Centre, the Marine Discovery Centre, and a world-class beach club by Cafe Del Mar.
A Curio Collection by Hilton hotel, SAii Lagoon Maldives is an original and inspiring resort that features a series of rooms and villas, including overwater pool villas, as well as world-class dining. Resort guests have access to extensive water sports, cultural activities and wellness at The Marina @ Crossroads.
Hard Rock Hotel Maldives, meanwhile, features 178 rooms, suites and villas, plus family-friendly experiences and Hard Rock’s branded concepts, including a Hard Rock Cafe, Rock Spa, and two Rock Shops showcasing merchandise and music memorabilia.
A dedicated mobile application has also been launched, allowing guests to plan and manage their trips with ease. With easy access to the facilities and services available in the five main areas for leisure and activities on the island — Dining, Shopping, Events, Exploration and Rooms — guests can explore and modify their experience as they wish. Reservations for rooms, restaurants, transportation and other services are also available on the app. The registration is free and available for everyone who is interested in visiting Crossroads.
With Crossroads revolutionising the tourism landscape of the Maldives with a well-crafted selection of diverse experiences, the island nation will no longer be defined merely as a honeymoon destination for the newlyweds. Whether you are five, fifteen, forty or sixty-four, Crossroads is setting your and your families’ comforts and enjoyment as its top priority.
