The private island you can book for a secluded getaway

Located off the coast of Belize, Gladden Island is the most accessible paradise you’ll find in the middle of the ocean

Waking up with unobstructed views over the second biggest coral reef in the world is our idea of bliss. You might think you’d need to be on a boat to get such seclusion, but Gladden Island lets you have solid ground under your feet while you enjoy all the luxurious creature comforts you can imagine.

The two-bed villa you’ll be staying in is the only one on the small island, with the staff staying on a smaller island just behind – ready to provide anything you might need, from snorkelling trips around the Belize Barrier Reef or a meal prepared by the Le Cordon Bleu-trained chef.
