We spent our honeymoon at Ladera. I am very busy and it takes me a while to slow down. The moment I walked into our room, escorted by a very polite staff member, I was blown away by the natural beauty. The open air concept is amazing but what is most amazing is that the people in this resort want...

My husband and I came here to celebrate an early 10 year anniversary. We travel a lot, and are accustomed to fancy resorts that the Caribbean offer. Since a private pool was a must this time, Ladera made the list. Once I saw the view the rooms look out to, all that was left was to book our vacation! Hard...

Perfect from the moment of arrival! They met us with cool fragrant towels and a refreshing fruit drink at the welcome gazebo. The lovely lady who oriented us to the property and to our room (her name was Tenderly) was so sweet and thorough. We had the most amazing view in Room H, the lighting in the evening was absolutely...

My boyfriend and I needed a Christmas getaway and a break from the cold so we decided to visit st Lucia and to stay at the Ladera resort. I would first like to start with the positives about this hotel. The staff was very warm, welcoming and friendly. We stayed in the hilltop room (x3), which had a heated pool...

Returned from a fabulous 4 day escape to Ladera. It was perfect for us as we just wanted to relax and not have to think about arranging anything. Our room was almost perfect (see comment below) - you cannot beat the amazing view and the stars at night. We almost never left the room. Its kind of like super high...

We stayed a total of 6 nights on the island - 2 at a resort on the north point of the island, and then the last four at Ladera. We were welcomed to Ladera by a wonderful punch, that was my favorite drink during our stay on the island (and it didn't even have alcohol!). We were taken to our...

Wow. That is all we can say about Ladera. I think Ladera in person is better than the photos if that is even possible. Upon arriving, we were immediately greeted by the best staff on the Island. They told us about the Sunday Creole buffet and we ate while our room was being ready for us. The food was SO...

We started out in room H...lovely one bedroom with non-heated pool. The shower area was huge! Then we moved to room E...with swings over a much bigger pool, which was heated. I loved that!

There are no words to capture the WOW-factors of Ladera! I seriously wish there was a way to score it more than 5-star. We stayed in the BEST room in Paradise Ridge, 1,000 feet overlooking the Caribbean Sea, our own private heated pool with spectacular views on both sides of our humongous room. One view you're 1,000 feet above ,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ladera is the pioneer of the open air three-walled concept in St. Lucia and has since been distinguished by a wide range of international publications, awards and accolades from Conde Nast Traveler, Travel + Leisure, Forbes Life Caribbean Travel and Life, Brides Magazine and countless others. Ladera was once part of Rabot Estate, one of Soufriere's oldest plantations, which still borders the resort. In the late 1960's a parcel of land was sold and developed into a small cluster of condominiums and christened Dasheene, named after the thousands of large, glossy-leafed dasheen plants (also known as elephant ears) harvested on the site. In 1982 it was transformed into a unique resort and changed hands a number of times before emerging as Ladera under the current private ownership. The mission has always been to offer an unparalleled guest experience that is quintessentially Saint Lucian, one that embraces the magnificent views and offers harmony with the surrounding natural beauty and rich bounty of the island. Today, that commitment to sumptuous authenticity is evident in everything from the innovative renderings of fresh local dishes at Dasheene restaurant, to the use of Caribbean timbers, stone and tile work used in the guestrooms and public areas. Yet it shines through most effectively with warm and welcoming Saint Lucian staff. ... more   less
