After eight years of anticipation, Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences Madrid is now open.

“Four Seasons Hotel Madrid began with a visionary plan by our owner partner OHL to unite and breathe new life into a collection of historic buildings in the heart of Madrid. Together with recent partners Mohari Hospitality, the result is a modern luxury experience in a magnificently restored property –

the perfect debut for Four Seasons in Spain,” notes Christian Clerc, President, Global Operations, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts.

José Antonio Fernández Gallar, OHL’s Second Vice-Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, comments, “OHL is proud to have such a prestigious partner as Four Seasons for our project. We are convinced that its presence will be key in the positioning of Centro Canalejas Madrid as the new icon of luxury in our country, and in the consolidation of Madrid as a reference destination for international shopping tourism, at the same level as large European capitals.”

Mark Scheinberg, Founder of Mohari Hospitality, which is half owner of the property with OHL since 2017, added, “We’re really proud to have partnered with Four Seasons and OHL to develop and open this flagship luxury destination in Madrid, and the first Four Seasons in Spain. Despite the challenging circumstances, we’re sure that Centro Canalejas, and its seven beautifully reconceptualised historic buildings, will swiftly become a new social centre for the City of Madrid and a second home for local and global visitors alike.”

Leading a team of 254 staff is Regional Vice President and General Manager Adrian Messerli, a Swiss born and educated Four Seasons veteran whose most recent assignment was in Shanghai.

“We are excited to welcome our first guests to the first Four Seasons in Spain,” says Messerli. “In addition to our dedication to providing guests with a memorable experience, our staff are all fully trained and implementing Lead With Care, Four Seasons enhanced global health and safety program. Grounded in healthcare expertise, the program provides the latest information and best practices that will help us keep our guests, residents and employees safe and well.”

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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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


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.



USD 3,695 for two persons for exclusive use per night (includes all taxes and booking fees).

USD 4,415 for four persons for exclusive use per night (includes all taxes and booking fees).

For groups larger than 6, visit our sister island; Kanu Private Island

Minimum 4 night stay.

All inclusive: All meals prepared by a gourmet chef, all beverages including alcoholic beverages*,  all island based activities including snorkeling, one full day of scuba diving, massages, various mainland excursions, transfers from and to Belize City.  Included in the price for a 7 night stay is a one-way 35 minute helicopter transfer over the barrier reef directly to Gladden. Terms and Conditions

¡Disfruta del uso exclusivo de toda la isla para 1 grupo de hasta 14 adultos y 6 niños!


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.



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.



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.
