My husband and I stayed at Ladera for our honeymoon and I cannot say enough lovely things about Ladera hotel and their staff and management. I was immediately blown away upon arrival once we were greeted with a nice drink and cool mint towel as a refresher! We were then shown to our breathtaking love nest! It was not just a room, it was spacious and more than I could have ever dreamed! The view was better than any pictures I had seen prior to us arriving. I was worried about not having any AC but with the flow of air that comes through it is nice and cool! I actually got chilly a few times. I also didn't have any bug issues as I was scared of prior to coming, the only time I was a "meal" for the mosquito's was around dusk by the pool only one night. The sunsets in our plunge pool were my favorite part of every night. So romantic and unlike any sunset back home. Dinner was amazing every night and the live music was lovely! Did I mention the couple's massage?!?!?! It was outstanding as well! I find myself always trying to find something as lovely as Ladera when traveling now. They have set the bar high! I look forward to returning there and highly recommend staying there.
- 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
