Ladera is one of the most beautiful places close to home (from Chicago). We stayed in a suite that has one 3 sides of walls, and exposed to the gros pitons and the oceans on a mountaintop, with a plunge pool. The people are really great, the food was also very healthy and delicious, though lacking a little bit of...

Going to Ladera with my fiance was our best vacation yet. When we had to leave after five nights, I felt the actual onset of tears it was SO good! We hardly needed to leave the property, other than one dinner at Boucan (yum yum); making an unexpected climb up Gros Piton; zip-lining at the nearby plantation; and of course...

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
