Why we choose Ladera Resort

An intimate, romantic hideaway with breathtaking sea views

  • Dive into the private plunge pools
  • The award-winning culinary team offers a weekly cooking class
  • Have a scenic workout in the Garden Gym

Plenty of places advertise that they help you “get away from it all,” but Ladera actually delivers. Maybe it’s the fact that, unlike other tropical resorts, Ladera ensconces you high up in the mountains rather than on the beach. Maybe it’s the hot tubs located within the spa gardens. However they do it, trust us that this St. Lucian retreat really is a complete escape from everyday life.

What you need to know about the hotel

The scenery at Ladera is so obscenely gorgeous, they’ve removed one wall from every room to show it off

  • Spa treatments are available in your suite, indoors at the spa or outside on Paradise Ridge overlooking the grand Pitons
  • On Friday nights, guests can take a boat to the quaint nearby village of Anse Le Raye for a traditional fish fry
  • Dasheene restaurant’s offerings are made from ingredients produced by island farmers that grow produce primarily for the resort

Once part of Soufrière’s most famous cocoa plantation, Ladera was reborn in 1982 as a unique luxury resort. The all-suite property offers 32 accommodations—all equipped with four-poster beds, fine linens, polished tropical hardwood floors and locally crafted accessories and artwork. What they don’t have is a fourth wall. Why? Because then you couldn’t fully experience the glorious sunsets and views right outside your room. And don’t worry; privacy doesn’t seem to be a problem, even for the shiest guests.

Everything you need to live like royalty is on site: a gym, a spa with treatments inspired by St. Lucia’s volcanoes and rainforests and, our favorite, a restaurant that puts a gourmet spin on traditional St. Lucian dishes. Who knew sweet potato and coconut soup was so good?

Where is it and what's nearby

A spectacular resort perched on the edge of the Pitons in St. Lucia

  • The best view of the island? A helicopter trip that showcases the soaring Piton mountains, banana leaf forests and secret coves
  • Diamond Falls offers three experiences in one: gorgeous botanical gardens, a picturesque waterfall and soothing mineral baths
  • A tour of the St. Lucia Distillers’ factory is a delicious way to learn about everything from white rums to rum creams

Ladera elevates your St. Lucian experience by taking you 1,000 feet above the Caribbean Sea, though the Soufrière area has plenty to offer if you ever decide to come down to ground level. Of course there’s incredible diving, as well as sailing, snorkeling, kiteboarding and other aquatic fun. On dry land, the island’s combination of mountainous terrain and lush flora create an ideal landscape for adventures like ziplining, canopy rides, bird and turtle watching and rainforest hikes. Take it down a notch with visits to historic sites such as colonial plantations and military ruins.

How to enjoy St. Lucia

You don’t have to be married to experience the romance of the world’s leading honeymoon destination. It will be love at first sight of the island’s perfect white sand beaches and clear turquoise waters

  • Tour the Sulphur Springs and enjoy the bubbling spectacle of the world’s only drive-in volcano
  • Charter a yacht to explore the island’s secret coves and enjoy the best views of the stunning 2,000 ft twin peaks, Les Pitons
  • Admire the multi-coloured Diamond Falls and benefit from their therapeutic mineral waters in Diamond Falls Mineral Baths Spa

This small Windward Island, it measures just 27 miles by 14, is one the gems of the Caribbean with lush rainforests, pristine beaches and an enticing lapis lazuli sea. Cool, elegant plantation-style architecture sits comfortably among glorious tropical gardens ablaze with the colors and aromas of hibiscus, orchids and bougainvillea.

Opportunities for true relaxation abound. Sip refreshing coconut cocktails from the edge of an infinity pool, shaded by gently swaying palms and soothed by the murmur of the ocean. Swim leisurely over stunning coral reefs as clown fish dart through slow-dancing anemones. Stroll across lush fairways and fine tune your putting on the beautifully manicured greens of the island’s three golf courses.

    When to visit St. Lucia

    Visit in February to enjoy the Calypso carnival of Shrove Tuesday and the Independence Celebrations. Highlights include kite flying, Calypso music and dancing, parades and the crowning of the Carnival King and Queen.

  • Be aware

    The road down to the beaches is very steep, and it’s easy to feel isolated in the dark.

  • A word from the hotel

    Indulge in a Ladera signature cocktail while partaking in the breathtaking views of the sunset and World acclaimed Pitons just a touch away.
    Mark Atkinson, Executive Chef
