We loved our room, after asking to be switched from A1 to T. They had given us an upgrade and A1 is a villa (and was larger) but T had a much better view and was further from the pool/restaurant area. Perfect for honeymooners!
Pros: the view, the laid-back feeling of the resort, the room, the wine list, the chocolate mousse, the staff was very professional, the spa was really great
Cons: the food service (sometimes it was fine, once it was just so slow we got really impatient), the cost, the shuttle to the beach, the buffet was disappointing, we thought the food at Ti Kaye Village was better
I would stay here again, but only for three days. It’s a unique treat, but not for everyone and certainly would not be good for a long stay. I would choose Ladera for a few days, and then a resort on the beach for a few days. Also, get the Petit Piton suite or go all out for the hilltop dream suite. The Gros Piton has a bedroom at the back of the room, rather than at the front with the view!
- 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
