My boyfriend and I stayed for four heavenly nights. When we walked in, the view stunned us of course. In less that ten minutes, he was in the plunge pool. It was a little cold for my taste, but the rum and coke made it more palatable, as did the sun and the view. The staff was very friendly; the...

My husband and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary in St. Lucia. We stayed at Ladera Resort as part of the Peak to Beach Package with Cap Maison. The room was simple yet romantic. One must be prepared for sharing the habit with rainforest creatures as we frequently had birds, frogs and slugs at various places in our room at...

We stayed at Ladera this past weekend for our 10 yr wedding anniversary. The Ladera staff was very friendly & helpful. They treated us like royalty. The views are breathtaking & amazing.

We spent seven nights at Ladera for our honeymoon on the Romance in the Tropics package in the Hilltop Dream Suite. We had the most relaxing time compared to other holidays we have taken. The suites are very private, at nights you will hear the frogs and crickets. The service was exceptional, beautiful property, very green and natural,the employees were...

I give it a 1-2 star only because it has an amazing view. Ok 2 star because most of the waitstaff and porters are friendly and polite, but other than that a super 8 motel is a lot better. Let me start when we arrived at the hotel, as soon as we got to the room, the table was dirty,...

I have travelled this area extensively and this hotel is very poor. The view is amazing but thats it. I paid USD 1,000 per night for a very basic room. The sun sets at 6pm and rises at 6am. During those night hours you cannot turn a light on or use a computer or phone. The slightest glow attracts the...

We went here in June 2011 for our honeymoon. The open air room was an unforgettable experience. To this day the "Shrimp Dasheen" is my husband's favorite meal (insulting to me - but indicative of how great Dasheen is). I can't really say enough about the Chef, he was terrific and really catered to my dietary needs. Sometimes, he created...

Ladera was extraordinary. The views from our room were a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The food at the restaurant was delicious. The staff were unfailingly polite, professional, and warm. We did three nights here and two nights at another resort (Cap Maison) across the island, and, although we liked Cap Maison, Ladera was far better.

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
