Create unforgettable moments of a lifetime at Ladera Resort St. Lucia, with luxury, romance, adventure, wellness, eco-friendly philosophy and Dasheene’s culinary delights. Uniquely located on a lush volcano ridge 1,000 feet above the Caribbean Sea, each luxurious suite boasts its own private heated plunge pool and an “Open Wall” design, without a fourth wall, allowing for breathtaking panoramas of the Majestic Pitons and deep blue Caribbean Sea. Rated one of the top 5 resorts of all the magnificent resorts in the Caribbean, this intimate 37 suite getaway is situated on an UNESCO World Heritage Site. All Suites include Roundtrip Private Car Airport Transfers, Breakfast at Dasheene, and the exclusive Ladera Ridge Hike to the top of the Ladera Ridge, where guests feel as if they can almsot touch Petit Piton. The 18,000 sq. ft. Ladera Spa with mineral pool is scheduled to open in June 2021. Award winning farm-to-table Dasheene Restaurant features International Cuisine infused with authentic St. Lucian spices, breathtaking views of the Pitons, the sea, the St. Lucian sunset and a one-of-a-kind Dasheene Team, offering a friendly and welcoming atmosphere, promoting the Ladera Eco-Friendly Philosophy; This is why Dasheene is one of the best restaurants in St. Lucia and the Caribbean. Executive Chef Nigel Mitchel and his culinary team create their culinary delights with products locally and organically grown on local farms, including the fresh seafood caught from the nearby waters, comprising 70% of what is created in the kitchen. The Ladera Wellness Garden tour allows guests to experience the fruit and spices served in Dasheene and the fauna of St. Lucia. The Essence of this Romantic Paradise is found among the staff who create the ambiance, the furniture with local hardwoods and stones, the wellness gardens, sustainability, and the eco-friendly philosophy. Using “Just Water” eliminates 85,000 plastic bottles at the resort. The wellness gym with a magnificent view of the Caribbean Sea and Pitons, exclusive Ladera onsite hikes along the volcanic ridge, tours of the wellness garden, the carpentry shop and yoga are enjoyed complimentary at the resort and are only available to Ladera overnight guests. For adventure on St. Lucia guests enjoy Ziplining, Horseback Riding, Hikes to the top of the Pitons, Boat Rides with Snorkeling, ATVing, mud baths and Sulphur Springs. Ladera Resort St. Lucia is the perfect setting for honeymoons, weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, adventures, wellness and just relaxing and watching the sunset. 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.

We did the peak to beach combo, arriving at Ladera second. It is a beautiful resort. The rooms are just breathtaking. The food at Dasheen was great. Room service did take awhile. Be advised that with the three walls you are definitely exposed to the elements- we had one night with crazy black flying bugs (the same bugs were at Dasheen as well). The beds have netting. Not many mosquitoes, Cap Maison had many more biting bugs than Ladera. We were not hot at night, the breeze keeps the rooms nice and comfortable. But, if you are a light sleeper, it is loud with the bugs etc outside at night. This did not bother us, but think others should be aware so they can make sure this is the experience they are after. The views do not disappoint and the hotel is in a fantastic location!

Hotel's Favourite
My husband and I spent 2 nights at Ladera during our trip to St. Lucia, and it was the highlight of our trip! The staff is so incredibly friendly, even noting when I mentioned once that mangos were my favorite fruit and making sure I had a fresh mango with my breakfast every morning! We stayed in a Hillside suite and were amazed at the well thought out architecture and attention to detail (the binoculars for watching birds and water gun were a fun touch!).. Having one wall open to incredible views was so unique, relaxing and still afforded total privacy. It was nice to just get away from the busyness of life and take in the sights and sounds of the rainforest and Caribbean. I would describe it as a very romantic, relaxing and intimate experience. The grounds are stunning!!! Beautiful plants with local fruit trees, spices and herbs growing on the property along with hummingbird feeders throughout. The Dasheen restaurant has the most beautiful views I’ve ever seen for a restaurant (both Pitons are visible), and the food is absolutely delicious. We also went to their state of the art gym and enjoyed amazing views while working out. The staff has done well at subtly putting in the COVID-19 safety protocols as required by the St. Lucian government and made it a very pleasant stay. We were able to book a private snorkeling excursion from the property. It seems water activities are open but land activities are still limited due to COVID.! I can’t recommend this place more highly.

Dear Jessica A, Thank you very much for staying with us. It was a pleasure meeting you. I agree with you, Ladera sits on the top of a volcanic reef allowing for the best views of the amazing Pitons. You really feel like you are touching them. At Ladera Resort the well being of our employees and guest is our highest mission. That is why we created the AngelFish Team. It is responsible of ensuring all COVID-19 protocols are followed while still providing our legendary Ladera service. I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Hopefully we get to meet you soon again. warmest regards, Christian

The 3 wall concept was so cool and different. It was an experience we’ll never forget. Our room was amazing with a breath taking view of the pitons. The food was great. The staff were so friendly and attentive- shout out to V and Caroline! We could have stayed in our room the entire time. We had our own pool, sunbathing space and the privacy was perfect. We highly recommend it!
