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.
You Will Never Be Bored
Pool side lounging, cocktails in the open air palapa and sunset dinners on the roof top terrace are par for the course. Your hosts will customize your experience on Gladden to be as relaxing or adventurous as you like.

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.
