2020 Travelers' Choice Best of the Best
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.

This place is amazing! When we arrived, we were greeted by the nicest staff! I don't think I ran across one single person that wasn't super friendly. Once we walked into our room, our mouths dropped at the view in front of us. The pool looked welcoming and the ocean and pitons in front of us were unreal. The hiking trails were awesome. The view from the top is the best there is in my opinion. The ONLY thing I can think of that wasn't my favorite were the amount of moths that were there. When you wake up in the morning they are everywhere. It makes sense because there are only 3 walls and the ocean view is wide open. Thank goodness for the net around the bed. (The staff cleans the room from top to bottom every single day to get rid of the dead bugs. Other than that, it was absolutely PERFECT. I highly recommend this resort!

Dear BMEllis4, Thank you very much for staying with us. I agree with you, Ladera Resort is located on the top of a volcanic ridge and our three wall concept suites provide a panoramic view of the Pitons... There is nothing better than enjoying a great cocktail in your own private heated pool. Our 1.9 natural trail take you to the top of our viewing plateau...is amazing..you feel like you can touch the Pitons from there... We are looking forward to see you again at our Romantic Getaway... Warmest regards, Christian

Hotel's Favorite
My husband and I spent 2 nights at Ladera during our trip to St. Lucia, and it was the highlight of our trip! The staff is so incredibly friendly, even noting when I mentioned once that mangos were my favorite fruit and making sure I had a fresh mango with my breakfast every morning! We stayed in a Hillside suite and were amazed at the well thought out architecture and attention to detail (the binoculars for watching birds and water gun were a fun touch!).. Having one wall open to incredible views was so unique, relaxing and still afforded total privacy. It was nice to just get away from the busyness of life and take in the sights and sounds of the rainforest and Caribbean. I would describe it as a very romantic, relaxing and intimate experience. The grounds are stunning!!! Beautiful plants with local fruit trees, spices and herbs growing on the property along with hummingbird feeders throughout. The Dasheen restaurant has the most beautiful views I’ve ever seen for a restaurant (both Pitons are visible), and the food is absolutely delicious. We also went to their state of the art gym and enjoyed amazing views while working out. The staff has done well at subtly putting in the COVID-19 safety protocols as required by the St. Lucian government and made it a very pleasant stay. We were able to book a private snorkeling excursion from the property. It seems water activities are open but land activities are still limited due to COVID.! I can’t recommend this place more highly.

Dear Jessica A, Thank you very much for staying with us. It was a pleasure meeting you. I agree with you, Ladera sits on the top of a volcanic reef allowing for the best views of the amazing Pitons. You really feel like you are touching them. At Ladera Resort the well being of our employees and guest is our highest mission. That is why we created the AngelFish Team. It is responsible of ensuring all COVID-19 protocols are followed while still providing our legendary Ladera service. I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Hopefully we get to meet you soon again. warmest regards, Christian

We had an amazing stay at Ladera last week! From their helpful and fun staff, to amazing food prepared by Chef Nigel and co, to the beautiful property, amazing views, and feeling of being a part of nature, I would highly recommend staying here. They did an excellent job following covid protocols as well- hand sanitizer was readily available throughout the property, and temperatures taken before every meal and when leaving/entering the property (for guests and cab drivers as well). Thank you, Ladera, for our relaxing and fun stay!

This was our second stop for our honeymoon and this resort is breathtaking! We could sit outside and look at the view all day. We stayed two nights and enjoyed our short stay. Even though COVID didn’t allow us to do some activities on and off the resort, we still enjoyed our time. The staff are friendly and the food was some of the best we have ever had, especially the lobster and Dasheene shrimp! We got some of most peaceful sleep because of the open wall concept. We fell asleep to the frogs and waterfall in our room. Amazing! We hope to return when things are fully open again. We definitely recommend staying here.

Dear BrittanyAnselmo20, Thank you very much for staying with us. Our AngelFish Team is responsible for ensuring all our staff received and implements COVID-19 training. You will see them throughout the resort, conducing unobstructed extra sanitizing procedures for high traffic areas and offering additional support to guest, this while still providing the legendary LADERA PERSONAL SERVICE. I agree with you, our three wall concept allows for the enjoyment of the nature to it fullest. You get a panoramic view of the pitons ! You feel like you can touch them. Chef Nigel uses only the freshest products, most of it is grown at Ladera Resort or is source from our local farmers and fisheries. He really enlivens our Farm to Table concept at our award winning Dasheene Restaurant. We are looking forward to welcome your back soon, Best regards, Christian
