To say that the Crossroads Maldives is what the height of leisure and luxury looks like could prove to be an understatement. The project, set to open this coming July 2019, is evidently ambitious in its scope. And rightly so, for the jewel that is the Maldives deserves nothing less.
The Crossroads more than earns its name for it is literally connecting three islands, each of which is like a shell that has its own unique pearl that’s waiting to be revealed and marveled at. Likewise, its moniker also connotes a place where numerous cultures intermingle, a perfect tribute to what the Maldives essentially is.
A haven for yachting aficionados
The Marina is certainly one of the features of the Crossroads that immediately stands out, especially if you’re a yachting enthusiast. It’s also unprecedented because it’s basically the first of its kind in the whole country. It can cater to most private yachts (even international ones) as long as they don’t exceed the maximum length of 197 feet. The presence of this new world-class marina further establishes the Maldives as a prime yachting destination in Asia and the world.

As you enjoy yachting, you can also avail of The Marina’s catering services to complement your activities. The Marina will also play host to various entertainments and events that could prove to be memorable for you and your loved ones.
A melting pot of indulgence and luxury
This expansive project is composed of multiple resorts that host equally numerous cafés and restaurants, spas, fashion and beauty stores, and entertainment centers. In short, everything that you can expect from an upscale resort but with more unique and Maldives-exclusive options to choose from.
With hotel brands like the Hilton and Hard Rock spearheading the development of its resorts, it’s safe to say that the Crossroads is surely in good hands. Both brands have been allotted their own islands where they are given free reign in developing their individual resorts. For Hilton, it’s Curio while the latter has the Hard Rock Hotel Maldives, which caters more to families.
Variety abounds in dining choices
The dining experience is particularly noteworthy, such as those found in the Hard Rock Cafe Maldives. Guests can partake of authentic American and Mexican cuisine in its humongous indoor and outdoor dining area. All the while guests will be serenaded with great rock music and be provided with a beautiful beachfront view that has the inimitable Maldives trademark.
The Marina, located on the western portion of the Crossroads, introduces a more Asian twist to guests. This is because it will be hosting Nihonbashi and Ministry of Crab, both of which have figured in the 50 Best Restaurants in Asia. The latter in particular is known for its sumptuous crabs while the former interprets Japanese cuisine using the freshest ingredients Sri Lanka has to offer.
Entertainment for everyone
There are practically numerous sites and features that cater to people of all ages. Kids, for instance, are encouraged to join Koimala and Maalim’s Junior Beach Club & Camp. In it, they’ll be able to immerse themselves in numerous attractions that range from a Splashpad, an inflatable waterpark, and other play zones that offer different opportunities for fun interactions.
For those looking for more exclusive events to take part in, they only need to check out the Crossroads Event Hall which is what serves as its multi-purpose area. Live concerts, meetings, and workshops will happen in it on a consistent basis, offering a different experience every time.
