Who says that one can only find a monotonous beach vacation and standard everyday entertainment in the Maldives? Vacationing on the islands is no longer limited in terms of space and options. In particular, there is a resort complex in the Maldives, which consists of not only two luxury hotels, but also an entertainment centre. Crossroads Maldives! This is a unique chance to see the Maldives in a new way.
CROSSROADS Maldives is a fully integrated lifestyle destination and premium multi-island resort that invites travellers to celebrate life in a tropical Maldivian paradise, overlooking the idyllic Emboodhoo Lagoon.
WHAT IS CROSSROADS MALDIVES?
An innovative project thanks to which guests are no longer limited in their choice of entertainment in just one resort. Crossroads Maldives consists of three connected islands. Two of them are occupied by modern resorts – the bright collection of SAii Lagoon Maldives Curio by Hilton and the iconic Hard Rock Hotel Maldives. The third island is the hub of entertainment, The Marina@CROSSROADS, where resort life is in full swing.
Nestled in South Male Atoll, just 15 minutes from Velana International Airport, CROSSROADS Maldives is a „one-counter, non-stop“ destination where adventurous families, friends and couples from around the world can cross paths and explore multiple attractions, including fabulous five-star resorts, most diverse dining options, world-class wellness, specialized stores and others, all surrounded by powder-soft sands and shining turquoise seas.
The heart and soul of the destination is The Marina@CROSSROADS, an 800-meter promenade that is full of cool cafes, fine restaurants and luxury boutiques. This vibrant neighbourhood is becoming the party capital of the Maldives and is unparalleled in terms of concept and implementation in the region!
ENTERTAINMENT IN THE MARINA@CROSSROADS
A short walk along the picaresque walkways of the resorts is the main entertainment hub of The Marina@CROSSROADS. The first marina of its kind in the Maldives has been built here, with 30 berths in the shape of a perfect circle – the best place for an impressive selfie.
