We just returned from our wedding at Ladera. It was the perfectly tranquil setting that we wanted for a quiet and personal wedding. The views and surroundings are spectacular and the staff is very professional and accommodating.
Livia and Caroline arranged everything perfectly for our wedding. Ermin even changed the location for us so that we could use the pavilion at the top of the hill. They cleared out construction work and set everything up and it was absolutely beautiful.
Lee and Neilbert are extremely friendly at Dasheen and the food and drinks were very good.
We really enjoyed the Boucan restaurant at Hotel Chocolat across the road, also. Try the Bean to Chocolate tasting – it was amazing.
We also loved the sound of the tree frogs singing and had the best sleep of our lives. It was like Robinson Crusoe – luxury style. We didn’t experience any problems with insects. An occasional night shower added to the symphony induced sleep.
We enjoyed the humming birds that were at our unit and other places. The pure privacy was very tranquil in itself.
We’ve read the other reviews and can only assume that this setting isn’t meant for everyone. We love nature and the outdoors. This is the only setting where the nature is truly part of the hotel. If you’re looking for a Four Seasons experience, and you don’t like birds and frogs singing, maybe this isn’t the place for you. We loved it and plan to go back for our anniversaries.

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Ladera opened in November 1992 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
