A Private Island Resort Built for one to two couples – Everything is included.
Waterfront villa with an outdoor pool.
A swirl of turquoise and aquamarine lagoons cradle Gladden, an island fringed with coral and white sand in the heart of the Belize Barrier Reef Reserve System. This island jewel harbors your own private sanctuary, a casually elegant villa designed for just one couple, with the all-inclusive service of a luxury resort. There is a second master suite should you wish to share Gladden with friends or family. Our staff resides unseen on the smaller island behind Gladden, ready to respond to any request at a moment’s notice. A “privacy meter” indicates if a member of the team is on the main island for any reason, because we want our guests to feel free to be themselves.
There are no other neighbors – it’s just you and the views.
Gladden Caye – Private Island
Gladden lies directly on the edge of the widest and most picturesque section of the Belize Barrier Reef in the Caribbean sea. It is the longest reef in the Western Hemisphere and the 2nd largest in the World. Located 20 miles off the coast of Placencia, Belize, Gladden is the furthest island out from the mainland and closest to the protected side of the reef where the water is calm and clear. The magical “Gladden Split” where the whale sharks congregate once a year is a mere few miles away. This is one of the most beautiful locations in the World.
Dine on local specialties prepared by your private chef. Swim with whale sharks at nearby Gladden Spit, one of the few places where these gentle giants congregate each spring. Book a spa treatment or boat charter through your personal concierge.
