This is a romantic get away that makes you feel like you have really gotten away from everything. I would describe it as Adam and Eve-esque, the first thing that you want to do is strip off your clothes and feel like the only two people in the world surrounded by nature. There is no better view in St Lucia...

Just returned from a 5-day winter escape to Ladera. We stayed in a newly completed Paradise Ridge Suite PR 3. As previous reviews indicate, the rooms are very unique in their 3-walled construction, and ours had a massive bathroom, private pool, and generous living area. Ladera is a small, luxury resort, and you absolutely get what you pay for. What...

As someone who works 7 days a week as the sole employee, this is a must!

We stayed at Ladera for four nights last year. We returned for five nights this year (February 2013) because we had such a wonderful experience last year. The view is fantastic. The staff is tremendous. But we found two disappointing changes. There is now live entertainment at the bar / restaurant in the evening. We used to enjoy a bar...

We started our honeymoon at Ladera and enjoyed our stay. The rooms are nice once you get over the bugs at night. We knew this going in and were OK with it.

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
