Uniquely located on a lush volcano ridge 1,000 feet above the Caribbean Sea, each luxurious suite boasts its own private heated plunge pool and an “Open Wall” design, without a fourth wall, allowing for breathtaking panoramas of the Majestic Pitons and deep blue Caribbean Sea. Rated one of the top 5 resorts of all the magnificent resorts in the Caribbean, this intimate 37 suite getaway is situated on an UNESCO World Heritage Site. All Suites include Roundtrip Private Car Airport Transfers, Breakfast at Dasheene, and the exclusive Ladera Ridge Hike to the top of the Ladera Ridge, where guests feel as if they can almsot touch Petit Piton. The 18,000 sq. ft. Ladera Spa with mineral pool is scheduled to open in 2022. Award winning farm-to-table Dasheene Restaurant features International Cuisine infused with authentic St. Lucian spices, breathtaking views of the Pitons, the sea, the St. Lucian sunset and a one-of-a-kind Dasheene Team, offering a friendly and welcoming atmosphere, promoting the Ladera Eco-Friendly Philosophy; This is why Dasheene is one of the best restaurants in St. Lucia and the Caribbean. Executive Chef Nigel Mitchel and his culinary team create their culinary delights with products locally and organically grown on local farms, including the fresh seafood caught from the nearby waters, comprising 70% of what is created in the kitchen. The Ladera Wellness Garden tour allows guests to experience the fruit and spices served in Dasheene and the fauna of St. Lucia. The Essence of this Romantic Paradise is found among the staff who create the ambiance, the furniture with local hardwoods and stones, the wellness gardens, sustainability, and the eco-friendly philosophy. The wellness gym with a magnificent view of the Caribbean Sea and Pitons, exclusive Ladera onsite hikes along the volcanic ridge, tours of the wellness garden, the carpentry shop and yoga are enjoyed complimentary at the resort and are only available to Ladera overnight guests.

Ladera Resort St. Lucia is the perfect setting for honeymoons, weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, adventures, wellness and just relaxing and watching the sunset. 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.

My husband and I stayed here from 1/22-1/25, we did not want to leave! Our room was very nice and the view was amazing. Our room was unit V. We were celebrating our Anniversary and needed a well deserved alone time together. The staff was very friendly, ALL of them! There’s was one lady in particular I don’t remember her name( I think it’s Melissa), but I was having trouble with my husbands travel authorization form before we came and she tried her best to help me. The food at Dasheene was amazing. We did try the food at Rabot restaurant across the street but I preferred Dasheene. If you are looking for a very romantic getaway and some intimate alone time with wifey or hubby this is the place to go! ☺️

10/10 MUST GO! We visited in October on our honeymoon and stayed at Ladera for 4 nights before traveling to another resort north on the island. The pictures do not do justice to the beauty of this place. The staff is amazing and there are unbelievable views everywhere you go. Waking up every morning we could not believe it was real. We did multiple excursions from Ladera. The staff set everything up and assisted with transportation making everything very easy. A visit to the beach is also a must! You have a beautiful view at the bottom of on of the Pitons. The views don’t stop in your room. There is a nature trail on property with a vista point and activated along the way. Meals were amazing and the views continue in the restaurant. We will be recommending Ladera to all of our family and friends. If you plan on visiting St. Lucia DO NOT MISS OUT on staying here even if for only a few nights. The south of the island is the most magical place.

We stayed at ladera for the unique room and we got it!! The view is breathtaking and ladera does a great job of showing it off. My wife was very worried about bugs and critters at night and we had zero problems. The room was great, the temperature was perfect no bugs and always a breeze.

I booked three rooms for five nights to celebrate a milestone birthday with my adult children and their partners. This could be such a great hotel - breathtaking location, wonderful concept - but the tired rooms (peeling paint at the bottom of our pool, ripped cushions, perfunctory housekeeping) and facilities (for example, the rubber strips on the steps to the restaurant missing or peeling off, making them very slippery in the frequent rain showers) are far from five star. The beach shuttle was in terrible shape. I know this can be remedied because we visited several similar properties for meals elsewhere on the island (notably Sugar Beach and Cap Maison) and found them MUCH cleaner and in better repair (shuttles at Sugar Beach are spanking new). While we found every restaurant we tried in St Lucia over ten days (we moved to another hotel for the second half of our stay) to have slow service (with the exception of the wonderful Orlando's in Soufriere), the nearly two-hour wait for our dinner at Dasheene was inexcusable. There seemed to be no one in charge. The same lack of senior management was apparent at the front desk - I spent an hour going over the final bill to correct all the errors. Because we felt Ladera has such potential, and the staff were well meaning, we asked to speak with the Manager about the situation. He offered to send us a voucher...More

Dear EpicuriaB, Thank you for staying with us ! I appreciate you and your husband siting down with us, one day before departure to express your disappointments with some issues. Our team members at Ladera Resort work very hard to provide the best personal service and facilities to our guest and we appreciate honest constructive feedback, so we can do better. As I mentioned to you and your husband, we are in constant maintenance work at Ladera Resort, even adding more amenities to our guest, like the new Spa, scheduled to open as soon as covid19 protocols allow it. Sugar Beach and Cap Maison have different concepts than Ladera Resort. Ladera Resort has the unique 3 wall concept, where you get panoramic views of the majestic Pitons rising above the blue Caribbean Ocean. Nowhere in the world are you so close to Nature like in Ladera Resort. Because of our concept the rooms are always open to the elements. That is why we encourage our guest to notify any issue that they may encountered right away, so we can address immediately. Again, thank you for staying with us, for providing us your feedback and we are looking forward to welcome you back soon, Best regards, Christian

The views are stupendous, the rooms spacious and without the fourth wall, fresh and breezy. Concierge and reception (Caroline, Juliet, Eva and others) so helpful and kind. Breakfast team very welcoming, too. We didn’t like Dasheene (see separate review). Otherwise a great experience.
