Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. This place is heaven on earth. The scenery, comfotable bed, plunge pool and service all wonderful.
We married young and waited 25 years to go on a trip like this and admit many of the recent reviews worried us.
We traveled with friends who were not as happy with there room and Ladera staff was happy to show them another which was very much appreciated. We had the Petite Piton room N and other then thin walls, we were taken back by the beauty and comfort.
I would consider upgrading next time to a little bigger suite.
I felt safe, ate & drank anything and never felt sick. Food outstanding. Enjoy the great beauty of the world and don't expect it to be commercialize. Go to Sandels for that.

- 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
