We had heard about the Sunday brunch at Ladera so we ventured there without a reservation on a Sunday around 1pm and were pleasantly surprised. I'm not sure if there is a better view from any restaurant in St. Lucia. It was like hanging out over a cliff in a treefort....we got the table closest to the 'edge'. The buffet was $35/person and worth it. Seafood salad, pork stew, ribs, chicken, you name it. TONS of choices, all hot and delicious. The desserts were the same. Service was good, but not great. They had a local band of oldtimers playing traditional music throughout the brunch. After brunch you could wander downstairs and enjoy a cocktail with stunning views from the lounge area. The gift shop was pricey but had some cool stuff. I didn't get to investigate the cottages they have to stay in, but I would consider it on another trip. All in all, a GREAT Sunday at Ladera! Near the Sulpher Springs just mins from Soufriere.
- 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
