This is an unbelievable resort provided you know what you are getting yourself into. If you are the kind of person who wants to lay on the beach all day and then relax in the air conditioning while watching Naked and Afraid reruns, this is not your place. There is nothing wrong with that vacation. I've had a several of...

I stayed for three days in advance of a sailing cruise. I cannot speak highly enough of the quality of the property and facility, and moreover, the exceptional quality of EVERY staff member. I had not been on the property for more 12 hours when it appeared that every staff member knew me by my first name and always greeted...

My husband and I spent 10 nights at Ladera for our honeymoon and it was nothing short of perfection! From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty, nothing was too much for the Ladera staff. Each and every staff member was attentive, polite and full of Caribbean hospitality - we would like to make special mention to Shanna,...

There is no good place to start when thinking about reviewing Ladera. We have struggled with how to find the words to describe what Ladrea is, and what it could be for you. The best words we could come up with include: magical, incredible, memorable, amazing, and perfect. (and we don’t use any of those words lightly!) When we did...

The resort property is beautiful, just when I thought it couldn't get better we were upgraded to a larger suite with a beautiful full size pool!! The staff was very courteous and helpful. But be prepared to spend its a deep pocket place. If money is not a problem Ladera will deliver. Ear plugs are a must because the rooms...

Let me premise this review by saying this was the best boutique hotel I have EVER stayed at in my life. No questions, THE BEST. What made it the best was the the Hilltop suite we were in, the location, staff and experience. Number one, We were put in Hilltop X2 suite which had a drop dead gorgeous view of...

Ladera in st lucia was a beautiful oasis. We stayed two nights. We ate dinner at dasheene one night and boucan the other. Menus are small and food is expensive. We ordered a chicken fettuccine at dasheene which was inedible, but everything else was good. Not a ton to do, so romance and relaxation are your only option. Not a...

Tucked between the two Pitons (Gross Piton and Petit Piton), Ladera is perfect for views of the Caribbean Sea and the Pitons of St Lucia. Imagine an open air living with three walls, and your forth window is actually "nature"; Each room is perfectly handcrafted , constructed of tropical hardwoods, Soufriere stone, and house-cut tile, as well as furniture made...

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
