PRIVATE ISLANDS INC – The Gladden Villa

While you’re ensconced in our casually luxurious 3,000-square-foot villa, you’ll never spot a neighbor. But you will be greeted with stunning views from every room. Stand in the entryway and let your eyes wander across the swimming pool to the coral reef beyond. Slip into the master suite, a soothing enclave of dark woods complemented by wide windows overlooking the ocean.

THE GLADDEN VILLA

Climb to the roof terrace to soak up the sun and bask in the panorama of aquamarine lagoons as far as the eye can see. The villa was built for two, but a second master bedroom can comfortably accommodate another couple should you decide that such dazzling beauty deserves to be shared.

THE PERFECT MIX OF ENERGY AND RELAXATION

A Gladden experience will be anything but ordinary. Dine anywhere. Casually paddle around the island while the vibrant reef entertains or call the boat captain to take you to some of the worlds best snorkeling and diving spots.

At the end of the day relax with a cocktail in hand and watch the dolphins swim by. Adventurous guests can head to the mainland where staff will arrange a variety of activities to immerse yourself in Belizian culture.

THE MENU IS YOURS TO DESIGN

Moon lit dining on our roof top terrace, romantic dinners on the beach, or pool side tapas are standard fare.

Organic produce grown in Gladdens Garden, fresh fish straight from the surrounding waters, and dishes accompanied by our curated wine collection ensure that dining reaches new heights on Gladden. Our trained in house chef Annika Kusion creates custom meals to guests tastes. Cuisine never gets boring when guests are treated to an array of visiting chefs allowing guests to sample the best of Belizian cuisine.

On Gladden the menu is inspired, creative and yours to design.

YOUR PRIVATE PLAYGROUND

Belize is home to the longest barrier reef system in the Northern and Western Hemispheres, and its stunning central section lies right in our back yard. Snorkeling merely requires a few fin kicks from the beach outside your villa, or let your island host arrange a trip to nearby Gladden Spit and the Silk Cayes Marine Reserve for some of the best scuba diving in the world. From April through June, whale sharks congregate in this protected area, offering the rare chance to swim with these gentle giants, the largest fish in the sea. Outside of the marine preserve, spear fishing and deep-sea fishing are available.

VISIT NEIGHBOURING ISLANDS

A great way to cruise and explore the inner Barrier Reef. Stop at nearby private island establishments and enjoy cold drinks and great food. Visit our friends at King Lewey’s Caye,  a small pirate themed island resort with great food and a fun atmosphere or visit the Lionfish Grill on Hatchet Caye, offering  unique and tasty menu items cooked with local produce and the freshest seafood.

EXPLORE THE MAINLAND

An easy boat ride away from Gladden Caye is Placencia Village, a palm-fringed town at the end of a 17-mile peninsula with relaxed restaurants, bars and a casino. Placencia serves as a convenient gateway to tour Belize’s rich inner terrain: jungles filled with more than 570 species of birds, towering waterfalls and ancient Mayan Ruins. The region is also home to Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary, the world’s only jaguar preserve. While away a day ambling in the rainforest or get your heart racing with cave tubing or zip lining. Our concierge can arrange any type of off-island excursion.

Inquire for included mainland excursions

THE MOST PRIVATE ISLAND

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.

KANU PRIVATE ISLAND

Frente a la costa de Placencia, Belice se encuentra una rara isla coralina de incomparable belleza, sus arenas blancas se inclinan suavemente hacia el Mar Caribe.

KANU PRIVATE ISLAND

KANU PRIVATE ISLAND

Después de crear el mejor escape privado para una o dos parejas a la vez con Gladden Private Island, el CEO de Private Islands, Chris Krolow, y su socio para el desarrollo, David Keener, han regresado a este lugar de vacaciones en Centroamérica para ofrecer otro escondite elegante. Kanu Private Island, que abre en el verano de 2019, está a solo 15 minutos en barco desde el continente, pero ofrece un santuario único en su tipo.

La isla de 2.5 acres garantiza la privacidad con cinco enormes villas de 1,000 pies cuadrados, cada una con un elegante dormitorio principal, techos altos de bambú, enormes baños de resort con duchas al aire libre, acabados de alta gama y muebles locales personalizados. Algunas villas también tienen bañeras grandes y una tiene un altillo para niños.

KANU PRIVATE ISLAND

KANU PRIVATE ISLAND

En el centro de la isla se encuentra la enorme área central con techo de palma que contiene la sala de estar, el comedor, el gran bar y la cocina flanqueados por la gran piscina de agua dulce enterrada completa con bar en la piscina. La paleta de diseño relajante incorpora piedra coralina y sorprendentes pisos de madera de rosa, complementados con tonos de acento del mar y el sol.

Pero la verdadera estrella en Kanu es el océano deslumbrante, visible a cada paso. Las vistas submarinas son igualmente impresionantes, gracias a los arrecifes de coral de la casa llena de peces justo al lado de la isla. Un paseo en bote de 20 minutos transporta a los visitantes a la Barrera de Coral de Belice para una visión aún más amplia del famoso ecosistema acuático de la región.
