Celebrating our 5 year anniversary, we made reservations at Ladera for dinner, and showed up early enough for drinks at sunset. The views from the bar area are absolutely spectacular and provide an amazing view of the ocean and Petit Piton. I enjoyed a cigar and a few different drinks. They have a good selection of rums and Whisky and... More

We absolutely LOVED our time at Ladera. Each room is extremely private. [If you are not looking for an authentic open-air experience, however, this is not for you; lizards, birds, bullfrogs, cicadas mosquitoes etc.] The view from our room was spectacular. We could see the Gros and Petit Pitons even from our bed! We were immediately greeted with Ladera punch... More

We stayed at the Ladera in St. Lucia with the package offered by Luxury Link. We were there the 10th through the 15th of May for our 39th wedding anniversary. The luxury link package price was good, but the published Ladera rate is too expensive for the location and benefits of the resort. The luxury link experience was great. We... More

My wife and I just spent 10 days at Ladera for our honeymoon in St. Lucia and had a great experience. We booked a Petit Piton room but were upgraded to a Gros Piton. For the two of us, this was plenty of space. I’m sure the higher-priced suites are larger and nicer but, if you can’t afford more than... More

Ladera isn't like anything you've ever experienced. The open fourth wall concept is brilliant, views are beyond what I can describe (especially in the morning and at sunset), the food was exquisite (and this is from a New Yorker who eats at high-end restaurants regularly), and the staff is incredibly kind and helpful. The only real knock on the place... More

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
