Palm trees gently swaying over pristine white sands, enjoyed with an icy cocktail in hand on the deck of your overwater villa. That is the holiday vision the Maldives archipelago holds for families, couples and more.
Seafaring Arabic traders called this the “money isles” as they harvested cowrie shells to trade nearly 2,000 years ago. More poetically, the actual name refers to the way the 26 coral atolls are scattered like a garland across the ocean.
Go on a snorkelling safari to Addu and you may find yourself swimming with spinner dolphins and turtles as you explore the coral reefs. The resorts of the Maldives may offer the ultimate in holiday indulgence but authentic island culture is accessible, you just need to visit one of the inhabited islands. The tropical Maldives are very warm all year around but watch out for the south-west monsoon in May-October and the north-east monsoon in November-April.
The Maldives is a south Asian archipelago in the Indian Ocean
Year round temperature average of 25’C.

Thanks for all your help helping me to decide on our villa holiday again this year – Nick and Cathy offer wonderful advice and always very efficient – even returning calls during the evening and on a Sunday too! Thanks again guys
This is our fourth time we have used Nick to book our villa holiday – he makes excellent suggestions and with honesty as well – even taverna suggestions! So looking forward to the holiday in August.
Nick was a joy to deal with -all emails responded to super fast – expert knowledge of all of the villas as well – expert advice.
Being able to make 1 phone call and receive bespoke holidays quotes within an hour is the reason I keep coming back to you – Thanks for all your help.
I wanted a way to incentivise my staff and Perfect Blue Villas curated an amazing trip that did just that, not only did it boost morale, we had an awesome time abroad!
We’ve used Rachael and her team since they opened for all of our family holidays, their personalised advice is second to none.
