We did the Peak to Beach package (in reverse...we stayed at Cap Maison first). This worked out well because we did a sailboat transfer downwind with "Jus Sail" that was amazing. Much better than a half day in a taxi. We loved Ladera to wrap up our trip by relaxing and it is closer to the airport so easier to...

There are many islands in the Caribbean that are similar, but only one St. Lucia. The reason St. Lucia is so special is because of the Pitons, and there is simply no better place to enjoy the Pitons than Ladera. My husband and I spent 4 nights at this amazing hotel, and it made us wish we had honeymooned there....

We are thankful to enjoy the most amazing location on the island, right between the pitons, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. While location is important, we thank you for mentioning the staff, which is our most important asset. We would love to welcome you back soon and wish you a fabulous holiday season! Shermael

You will read negative reviews here. To be frank I have to question what these people expected. With Ladera you must accept the premise to truly understand just how special this place is. Three Walls, spectacular view, but it is only three walls and the best view in the world? Very private rooms but Nature is right there. Yes, the...

We were booked for a seven day stay for our honeymoon. I was so excited about the open air concept! I asked if there would be many mosquitoes, and was told no, and that we may encounter a "lizard or two." Well: warning! Since they won't tell you! There were geckos everywhere- 10-20 at a time on the main floor....

While extremely rare, it happens that you will see a tarantula somewhere at the resort. By no means is it a significant issue as we conduct pest control on a daily basis at the resort. Some people are more sensitive than others to the site of a gecko, but I can reassure you that our pest control program is one...

The location is simply stunning, and it is impossible to get enough of the views. The missing wall approach is also a great experience, though I am not sure you want to have it for more than a few nights in a row. Staff is also great. We had nice weather and was not bothered by insects or the lack...

We are glad that you appreciated the open wall concept but disappointed that you could not enjoy the authenticity of the resort. At Ladera we maintain state-of-the-art craftsmanship showcasing high quality local craft.

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
