Really a gorgeous, unique setting in the rain forest, beside the Piton Mts. and overlooking the Caribbean. My wife and I got "Ladera fever" and simply relaxed in our suite with its own private pool. Fabulous French-Creole cuisine from Mark Tan and the staff is so attentive and good-natured. We stayed 10 days and got to know many - Wonderful...

So different from anything or anywhere we've ever stayed before. I simply could not get over the view from out of our suite! It is breathtaking as so many have described it. And it just doesn't get any more romantic. It is a must stay when going to St Lucia, we loved it! Three points you should know....1) Dasheene is...

If I had one word to describe Ladera it would be wow! I spent many weeks researching the perfect 8 day trip in the caribbean for my fiance and I, which led me to booking 3 nights at Ladera in St. Lucia and 4 nights in Hermitage Bay in Antigua (you can read my review for this hotel as well)....

My boyfriend and I just returned from Ladera. Never have we experienced anything so perfect. It was simple and elegant with a real down-to-earth feeling. The staff was EXCEPTIONAL! They treat you like family. The rooms were beautiful and earthy. Stone, Mahogany, tile, and all open aired so the breeze at night kept you cool. It isn't for all though...

I have travelled a lot internationally to nice properties like four seasons, fairmonts etc so can do a lot of comparison. For the price it's a mediocre property. The prices of ladera compares to four seasons and fairmont. At least what we paid. PROS We got an upgrade to room B which is a 3 bedroom suite but ended up...

We thought this was a fabulous hotel but can understand why it doesn't suit everyone. We visited Ladera for a total of 9 nights in mid August. We were unlucky with the weather and early in our visit we had a couple of days of heavy rain and wind (start of hurricane Isaac) which put a damper on things. However,...

My wife and I recently celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary at Ladera, In our wildest dreams we could never have anticipated what a wonderful experience it would be. Going to bed listening to the chirping frogs and the sound of our own waterfall flowing into our own private pool was wonderful. Each evening we enjoyed cocktails in the lounge prior...

Amazing!!! We went in June, which didn't have an amazing sunset like I have seen on the photos, but it still was the best resort I've been too. My husband and I and another couple honeymooned there and it was just fantastic. We had a horrible experience at the Sandals and Ladera made it so much better. 5 star food,...

This was our sixth or seventh visit to Ladera. But due to an unpleasant (to say the very least) experience with a previous manager, we hadn't been there for several years. Returning once again was like coming home. It was wonderful to see all of our old friends again and the truly awe inspring beauty of the Pitons. We travel...

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
