My husband and I were married in St. Lucia on April 25 2012. We had a magical experience at Hotel Ladera. The ceremony was performed between the magnificent Piton's. I had been to St. Lucia a few years back and stayed at a cookie cutter chain all inclusive resort further north, which lacked romance, culinary fare, and island flare. Ladera...

My wife and I stayed at Ladera at the end of July for three days. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We stayed in Room F and it was fantastic. The pool in this room is very large and goes to a depth of 7 ft. We are outdoors oriented people and we loved interacting with nature. Potential guests must understand...

I have never been more excited to write a review before - mainly because of some of the negative reviews I read prior to my trip on this site.

Arriving on the island of Saint Lucia you can't help but notice that this place is different, with its lush vegetation and its winding mountain roads. Once we got to Ladera we were greeted by Olivier and a wonderful fruit punch and chilled peppermint towel. The first thing we noticed as we entered the room was how spacious it was,...

We are currently staying at Ladera and we are surprised that this has received such high ratings overall. We stayed at Jalousie at the beginning of our trip and while the prices are similar, the value is not even close. I might not have had such high expectations if I hadn't stayed at another resort in the same area and...

My husband and I traveled to St. Lucia on our honeymoon. Ladera was a big reason we decided to come to St. Lucia because we were intrigued by the concept.

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
