I went on my honeymoon to Ladera last July. Ladera was incredible. It is unique in so many ways and it is exactly as the website says it is. It's paradise in so many ways. The views will be the best you have ever seen. I have never in my life been around a staff that was as genuinely caring as the staff at Ladera. The food at Dasheene was some of the best I've ever had. As each course came out, my wife and I were continually blown away. I highly recommend the mojo steak. While you were at the resort, they treated you like family. Everyone knew our name and it was their sole duty to make this trip the time of your life. If you are terrified of a few bugs this might not be the place for you. I have traveled my whole life and no resort has ever been as unique as Ladera. It is truly an incredible "tree house" where every room seems like a suite (we got upgraded so we saw multiple rooms !!) and where people are always ready to serve you. I highly recommend Ladera and hope one day to return. I'm thankful they made my honeymoon so great.
- 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
