Perched on a lush mountain ridge just south of the island capital of Soufrière, five-star Ladera Resort offers remarkable views of the Caribbean Sea and St. Lucia’s famed twin Pitons.
Guests can choose from 21 rooms of fieldstone and polished wood. Here, you can completely escape from reality, as there are no TVs or phones to interrupt your vacation vibe. A unique room feature is the open concept design of each room (no fourth wall), which offers an unobstructed view of the sea and Pitons below. Note: If an evening symphony of tree frogs would disturb your slumber, consider bringing earplugs.
Ladera Resort also boasts an infinity-edge pool, a sundeck, and an open-front restaurant/lounge which all offer panoramic vistas. The air-conditioned health spa and shuttles provided for snorkeling/diving and beaches activities are other perks. In addition, the staff is amiable and efficient without being intrusive.
The onsite restaurant, Dasheene, offers sumptuous cuisine and unparalleled views. Open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and a special Sunday brunch menu, Dasheene is popular with island locals and visitors staying in other accommodations.
