Ladera was the first of three hotels that we stayed at during our honeymoon. I used tripadvisor I strongly recommend everyone’s reviews, as they were very helpful. St. Lucia is a beautify island and Ladera really takes advantage of the exotic nature of the island. When we arrived to check in the staff gave us a genuine warm welcome. They...

Let me start by saying I have stayed in hotels all over the world and I was completely blown away by this resort. I was worried we were going to be hot. I was afraid we would be disappointed. I was WRONG! We were in suite F. The service from Mellisa and Caroline was second to none. The room was...

Honestly, I was very hesitant to go to Ladera based on the three wall deal, but it was the best part of our honeymoon. We spent 3 nights at Ladera and then 4 nights at Sandals.

Ladera is one of the most beautiful places close to home (from Chicago).

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
