Are you still dreaming of the perfect wedding in paradise? CROSSROADS Maldives understands that 2020 has been an especially difficult year for brides and grooms who were forced to put their plans – and their lives – on hold. But with Maldives having reopened to visitors, couples can now start looking forward to the ultimate private island wedding, in the company of all their friends and family.
SAii Lagoon Maldives and Hard Rock Hotel Maldives, the stunning sister properties at CROSSROADS Maldives, are both now offering a unique opportunity to buy out either private island resort in its entirety, at any time between now and the end of May 2021. Under this privileged promotion, planners can hire their preferred five-star resort with ample accommodation, all-inclusive dining and transfers, creative bonding activities, wonderful wedding packages and much more!
At SAii Lagoon Maldives, couples can kick off their shoes and exchange their eternal vows barefoot on the sand. This exquisite package promises up to 50 rooms or villas for guests, private speedboat transfers to and from Malé’s Velana International Airport, welcome drinks, daily breakfast, lunch and dinner in the resort’s restaurants, alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks at any time of day, complimentary Wi-Fi, unlimited use of kayaks, snorkelling gear and pedal boats, group bonding exercises such as island adventures and beach volleyball, and a selection of activities, including sunrise yoga sessions, Zumba classes, cocktail making and eco excursions.
Weddings also take centre stage at Hard Rock Hotel Maldives, where couples can write their own timeless love song. Groups will be exclusively hosted on the hotel’s private island, with up to 50 studios, beach or water villas to accommodate all their friends and family and a Rock Star Suite for the host, plus private transfers and welcome drinks, three daily meals with non-alcoholic drinks, complimentary Wi-Fi, group games and non-motorised water sports.

Then, when the time comes to say “I do”, SAii Lagoon Maldives and Hard Rock Hotel Maldives will deliver a wonderfully romantic wedding package. A 60-minute spa treatment will help the happy couple unwind before the ceremony, and the bride will be treated to professional hair and make-up, then escorted to venue in a decorated buggy. She will look radiant as she walks down the aisle, carrying a floral bouquet and serenaded by a traditional Bodu Beru drum performance. The package also includes a bottle of Champagne, hot and cold canapés, a three-tiered cake, a two-hour photography session with a 30-page album, a framed certificate, a four-course candlelit dinner and a bottle of wine. The bride and groom will then be treated to a special turndown service with a floral bath, Champagne breakfast the next morning, and a final soothing spa treatment.
The Event Hall at CROSSROADS Maldives is an enchanting venue for weddings.
