Crossroads Maldives: The First Integrated Leisure and Entertainment Resort

Crossroads Maldives consists of nine islands under one umbrella offering 60 retail outlets and international food and beverage chains


Crossroads Maldives is a brand new development for a new generation of 21st century explorers. This $650 million leisure destination will be Maldives’ first one-stop and non-stop lifestyle destination which features iconic oceanfront resorts, upscale lifestyle outlets and entertainment offerings, as well as the stunning natural, cultural and nautical attractions. Despite building big, Crossroads Maldives is vested to protect every small detail and ensure the balance of nature.


If you’ve ever been to the Maldives, you would know that the mode of transportation from Velana International Airport to many resorts would range from either a direct seaplane ride or having to take a domestic flight and then a yacht to many resorts.

Crossroads Maldives being a man-made paradise simplifies the problem as it is a 15 minutes speedboat ride away from Maldives’ International Airport. 


Crossroads Maldives draws its inspiration from the cultures of both East and the West during the crossing of Maritime Silk Road. Crossroads Maldives offers luxury accommodation for couples who would prefer undisturbed experience meanwhile also be able to enjoy the facilities at the Township and Duty Free.

Saii Lagoon Maldives, Curio Collection by Hilton caters to couples, families, and friends in search for a playful destination getaway with 198 guest rooms and stunning variety of villas. The resort will have generous interiors and alfresco spaces with personalised comforts. The signature journey begins on arrival when guests select their own amenity set using natural ingredients from an aroma lab.

World-renowned and American classic Hard Rock Hotel brand will offer 178-key family suites, beach villas and one and two-bedroom overwater villas complete with stunning views, infinity pools and amenities. Inspired by local culture, tropical architecture will be infused with contemporary design features, alongside regionally-inspired authentic music memorabilia.

Crossroads Maldives comes with its own Marina which is an 800 meter lifestyle beach walk in the Maldives. From sunrise to sunset, guests can enjoy a remarkable experience unlike any other beach in the Maldives. This is the first yacht marina with 30 berths, providing luxury yacht concierge services including jetty and pier management services.

The sun might dive in the sea and take its due rest but the island continues to resonate the live sound of Hard Rock Cafe and the laid back beats of the world-renowned beach club from Ibiza, Cafe del Mar Maldives.
