If you’re looking for 100% privacy filled with luxury and incredible nature this is the right place for you. Gladden Private Island, a tiny hotel off the coast of Belize that opened in December is the world’s most private island offering 100% privacy for 2 to 4 guests. Brainchild of Chris Krolow, the host of HGTV’s Island Hunters, who’s spent the past 20 years selling and leasing private islands, Gladden Private Island resort is actually two islands – one for you and one for staff.
Your private sanctuary, luxurious 3,000-square-foot villa guarantees you that you won’t see another human if you don’t want to. 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.
On the island you will also dine on local specialties prepared by guest chefs from celebrated kitchens around the world. You can even book a spa treatment or charter a boat through the island’s personal concierge.
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.
