This is a small, boutique property located on the edge of a cliff 1,000 feet above Anse Piton and Sugar Beach. The service was very good. The open room concept was amazing. Completely private yet open to one of the most spectacular views. The noise at night was not that loud (I enjoyed it) but ear plugs are provided as...

Holly Scott, the owner, has established an amazing retreat from the rest of the world at Ladera. I'll get to the hotel review, but first let me say a few things about St. lucia . The island is ridiculously beautiful to start . Very high peaks and hills overlooking the sea, a volcano ( safe) and nature galore. The people...

It's a hotel but can be reserved for lunches as well. Went there for my birthday had the biggest burger ever which was tasty. The staff were really nice and loving. The topic of the view you get from Ladera is a whole nother story. IT IS CAPTIVATING, BEAUTIFUL, AMAZING! LOVED IT! Quiet environment,

My wife and I did a getaway at Ladera for 5 days and it couldn't have been more wonderful. The resort is small, beautiful, peaceful and absolutely lovely. The room was unique and beautiful, and the service was excellent (not always common in the region). I felt reborn after just a few days. Two notes of caution. The "open" rooms...

Great Experience! My wife & I stayed here for a few days on our honeymoon and had a blast! The food, people, & hospitality were top notch. Wouldn't trade the open room experience for anything and can't wait to find some time to do it all over again... Cheers to Ladera for being such great hosts!

Unique, beautiful , no kids so quiet and relaxing. Staff very friendly. Food good but way overpriced , but beautiful restaurant location. Sugar Beach is amazing but be prepared to be treated like non- resident!

I read some of the existing negative reviews before I started writing this. I can't speak to those who claimed their rooms were not well maintained or subject to car noise because ours (one of the hilltop rooms above the restaurant) was well maintained and we heard no road noise. But what I can say is that this is not...

Could not have asked for a more perfect location to unwind for the week with my sweetheart. From the moment we arrived, everything was awesome. The location cannot be beat and the views are to die for. Romance at its best!! Thoughts: Room: The space, character, pool and views were outstanding. We travel all over the world and have been...

The views from the open-air room were worth every penny! The room was large with a couple of sitting areas to enjoy the view and a heated in-room pool with privacy. The housekeeping/grounds staff were great and Owner/Operator Holly made sure I had everything I needed. Dining at the resort was very pricey and the food was just ok. I...

Just spent a long weekend getaway at Ladera. Location is a must see! Overall an outstanding stay. Staff, rooms, grounds and food were on point. The beach at Viceroy is a 10-15 taxi ride complimentary of ladera. Another fantastic location. Staying at ladera and spending the day at the beach gives the best of both worlds. You won't be disappointed.

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
