Ladera ranks among the best of many travel experiences we've had. I'll review various aspects, but feel I must first mention the staff, who were the kindest, friendliest and most helpful group at every level, that I've ever encountered. The resort itself commands a setting that is unparalleled for magnificent sea, mountain and rain forest views, as well as refreshing...

This is a beautiful resort with excellent views, great staff and we had an awesome time. If you need the news, a telephone, or tv, you won't find it here. It took me a few days to get used to this and it was a wonderful break. They do however, have great internet service (free) in all the rooms. This...

A beautiful resort hotel overlooking the Pitons on St Lucia. Great infinity pools and excellent open air restaurant with fabulous views. Staff friendly and welcoming. Worth a return visit.

Ladera is one of the most unique and amazing resorts in the world. No fourth wall and a location that's pretty much smack-dab in the rainforest - views that will blow your mind and eclectic, crazy interior design that's pure genius. It's pretty hard to describe this experience - let's just say that we felt like we fell down the...

I have been fortunate to have traveled many times in the Caribbean, and this was my first trip to St Lucia, and certainly NOT my last. Ladera spoiled me with amazing views, amazingly warm staff, and the food . . .was simply prepared and some of the most delicious i have had in a long long time!! Each room is...

Being a restaurant critic in a former life, it's my nature to find flaws. Returning to Ladera's three level open air restaurant, 'Dasheen' served to remind me that it is indeed a 'gem' in every respect: service, check; ambiance, check; menu, check; setting, check; food, check; beverages, check; vibe, check; entertainment, check and wow factor off the charts. Dasheen surpasses...

I've traveled the world and compare my Ladera experience favorably with the ranks of Ceragin Kempenski Palace on the banks of the Bosphorus framed by a vista of Europe reaching into Asia--to the hallowed halls of the St Regis in Manhattan. Ladera sets itself apart in this context with its' uniqueness in every way;views of the Pitons stationed like bookends...

My husband & I just spent 2 nights at Ladera for a birthday celebration. This was our 3rd stay at the resort - the last time being about 8 years ago - & we were shocked at how much it had gone downhill during that time. We arrived there at 2.30 pm to be told that our room was not...

Granted the Ladera Resort in St. Lucia, West Indies is a magical and beautiful place, but, what makes it special is its staff. From beginning to end, it was an unforgettable experience.

Ladera is absolutely beautiful. Each room has no wall on the ocean side, so you're facing right out to the cliff and the bay and the Pitons. Despite that, they are all completely private and you can not see any other rooms. We got a room with a plunge pool - barely used it, and frankly it didn't seem necessary....

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
