Ladera was once part of Rabot Estate, one of Soufriere’s oldest and most famous cocoa plantations. In 1992 it was transformed into the unique, intimate resort it is today. Located on the southern end of St. Lucia, Ladera boasts spectacular views of the Pitons, the St. Lucia rainforest and the Caribbean Sea.
Dasheene restaurant at Ladera is best known for its eclectic and innovative menu and offers incredible views serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. It is a true culinary delight and all prepared with local organic ingredients. The Bar at Dasheene is open from 12 noon each day. It is a perfect setting for a pre-dinner cocktail or to enjoy a live music show. Part of Dasheene Restaurant, the Bar shares the same unobstructed sea views flanked by St. Lucia's signature twin volcanic Piton peaks.
There is a shuttle service to Sugar Beach daily and there are several interesting and adventurous activities in the surrounding rainforest including hiking up the famous Pitons and horse riding. There are also a range of island tours available and you can go whale watching to catch glimpses of sperm whale and short finned pilot humpback.
The spa at Ladera features indulgent treatments inspired by St. Lucia’s volcanic history and the lush rainforest that surrounds this peaceful sanctuary.
The adults-only hotel offers 32 suites all built without a fourth wall for breathtaking views and unobstructed star gazing. The suites all come with private cold plunge or heated pools and are constructed of tropical hardwood, stone and tile, equipped with furniture made on site by Ladera’s own artisans and decorated with local artwork. The Paradise Ridge suites offer the most lavish and spacious accommodations and come complete with butler service.
This small intimate luxury Caribbean hotel of Ladera takes full advantage of its natural surroundings and is a real romantic retreat.
