We did a TON of online research before choosing Ladera for our St Lucia resort. There is a lot of hype and marketing on the internet about the options in southern St Lucia. It can be difficult to know what is real and what is advertising. We couldn't be happier with our choice. During our vacation, we visited all of the other competing resorts and there simply is no comparison to what we had with Ladera. By far, this is the premier "view" on the island. There are other beautiful views of the Pitons out there, but none of those experiences enter your living quarters like they do here. You are right there, in nature, dominated by the ever-changing Pitons. The view was our favorite part of the entire trip. Every morning we watched rainbows pop out of the rainforest. At night, the moonlight lit the mountainsides. Truly, there was something new to see all through the day and you can't get that unless you stay close by. It was an amazing experience.
Ladera staff were all amazing. They got to know us personally and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. The rooms were island-boutique, with authentic details. Plus, you are seriously close to all of the best activities on St Lucia. The prettiest beach is just down the hillside.
Thank you Ladera. We plan on returning in the future.
- 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
