S Hotels and Resorts Maldives
A subsidiary of Thailand’s Singha Estate PCL, the S Hotels and Resorts will start showcasing the cultural charm and the diversity of Maldives as a part of its ambitious development to date. The first phase of CROSSROADS Maldives will integrate the leisure and resort destination by June of this year.
Scheduled to open this summer 2019, this project will encompass the three independent islands fringing the Emboodhoo Lagoon in the pristine South Male Atoll, which is just 15 minutes away from the Male International Airport via speedboat. Upon completion, the CROSSROADS will offer two captivating hotels: The Hard Rock Hotel Maldives and the SAii Lagoon Maldives, including a wide range of facilities centered upon The Marina @CROSSROADS, an 11,000 square meter destination offering lifestyle, retail, and dining experiences.
Aptly named and specifically master-planned as a global meeting place, CROSSROADS Maldives will offer travelers around the world an authentic Maldivian culture showcasing the past, the present, and the future.
S Hotels & Resort’s Chief Hospitality Officer, Dirk de Cuyper, said, “The Maldives is a truly beautiful destination – a tropical island paradise where guests can fulfill their vacation dreams. But there is more to this enchanting country than just sun, sea and sand. The Maldives has a rich history that has been shaped by its unique maritime location at the crossroads of different cultures. The facilities that make up Phase One of CROSSROADS Maldives will encourage guests to delve deep into the diversity of the destination, whilst also embracing the country’s exquisite natural beauty.”
The design and architecture of CROSSROADS Maldives will reflect the historical influences of the country. The developers will also actively engage with the local communities to create a win-win combination of empowerment and authentic guest experiences.
Guests will enjoy a cultural attraction that will showcase the Maldivian customs and culture through video, interactive displays, and hands-on experimental adventures. The center will also display and sell handcrafted products created by the local people, women in particular.
Set to open its doors in June 2019, CROSSROADS Maldives will feature an array of world-class attractions. Hard Rock Hotel Maldives will feature 17 rooms, villas and suites, plus family-friendly experiences. It will also feature Hard Rock’s branded concepts like the Hard Rock Cafe®, Rock Spa® and a Rock Shop® selling merchandise and showcasing music memorabilia.
