We spent a couple of nights at Ladera recently to celebrate our 27th wedding anniversary, having originally spent our honeymoon on St Lucia. Despite a dreadful journey from Barbados on LIAT (a four hour delay living up to it's reputation of 'Leave Island Any Time'), we were immediately relaxed once we arrived. We were given a wonderful 2 bed suite (which actually had 3 bedrooms). The rooms and views are well represented by the photos on the site and the view and setting is amongst the most beautiful I have experienced anywhere in the world. The staff were very happy to help us settle in and very attentive to our needs. We had a wonderful time and returned very relaxed. Read the advice on the other reviews about staying in a open air room. If it still bothers you, don't go (but then you probably shouldn't go anywhere tropical).
- 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
