Ladera Hotel Resort in St Lucia
Ladera, a stylish eco lodge is perched on a ridge 1,100 feet above sea level and has been described as a ‘View with a Room’ and it is the place to see the famous Piton of St Lucia panoramas, especially at sunset. Ladera is also one of the most perfect spots for not only a holiday in St Lucia but also for a St Lucia Honeymoon.
The position of Ladera on St Lucia is the key. It is two miles from the sleepy port of Soufriere up a very steep hill, and it looks as if it is built into the hilltop. Its height and position are responsible for some of the most breathtaking views from any hotel in the world. Imagine the forest with the sea below, the sheer dominance of the two Pitons rising from the sea.
There are six villa suites and twenty one suites at Ladera, and each one has what can best be described as an open wall, giving the impression that they are open air. Each suite therefore has the most stunning uninterrupted views.
In a way the design of the suites makes the one side that is completely open to elements almost part of the décor. They are really only three walled rooms, but totally sheltered from any storms.
Imagine a beautiful polished wood interior with a step down to a terraced garden, pool surrounded by flowers, and beyond that the view, the glorious view to die for.
Safety is paramount, and the suites are both safe and totally private, each with its own plunge or villa pool. The lack of children as it is an adult only resort just adds to the tranquillity and the lack of safety gates!!
Ladera is the first ever Caribbean hotel to rank at number one in the Conde Naste Traveller ratings, and is the kind of resort that travellers dream about It is hard to imagine a world acclaimed small lush tropical gem that is still virtually unknown. This is an expensive destination but for paradise you must expect this.
Any luxury resort needs an award winning restaurant, and Ladera as befits the best Luxury resort in St. Lucia is no exception. Dasheene the resort’s award winning terrace restaurant opens for breakfast, lunch and dinner specialising in nouvelle cuisine using organic farming based products. The views from the restaurant terrace are quite breathtaking especially at sunset. The views from the Tcholit cocktail lounge is no less fantastic and it also features live music.
What will strike you more than anything when you stay at Ladera is that you have to see it to believe it. There is every reason to read up on destinations before you go, but often hotels described as out of this world are in fact a disappointment. Not so here at Ladera, where the tag of the best Luxury Hotel in St Lucia, the perfect spot for a Honeymoon in St Lucia do not in fact do the place justice.
Many guests who arrive in the late evening get their first view of the Pitons when they wake in the morning. It is heart stopping, and everything else about Ladera merely confirms that the choice made for your St Lucia Holiday Hotel was absolutely the right one.
From the excellent unobtrusive staff who will pamper to your every whim, to the food, the décor, the suites.
