Nestled in the rainforest, Ladera is the first eco-luxe property in St. Lucia, a romantic paradise for couples and the only resort in the Caribbean ever rated the world’s best by Condé Nast Traveler. The resort is set on a forested ridge, 1,100 feet above the sea overlooking the World Famous Volcanic Piton Mountains and the Caribbean Sea. The mission is 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 bounty of the island.
Each of Ladera’s 32 suites was intentionally built without the fourth wall to allow the astounding views of the two volcanic peaks, and the azure coastline below. The open wall leads to a private pool, panaromic views and is surrounded by lush tropical landscaping. The decor is distinctive and naturally aesthetic locally woven textiles and custom crafted wooden furniture.
Paradise Ridge is Ladera’s most recent expansion and is a private and secluded enclave offering the most lavish and spacious accommodations, complete with butler service. The new Villa at Paradise Ridge takes the concept of the resort’s most popular suites to an even loftier level. With 1900 square feet of space, the lavish villa is the largest one-bedroom accommodation directly facing the World Famous Pitons, on a high vantage point on St.Lucia. All the new units are constructed of tropical hardwoods, Soufriere stone and house-cut tile and feature the authentic local craftmanship, well known to Ladera.
Ladera’s Dasheene Restaurant serves an eclectic, stylish interpretation of St. Lucian cuisine and offers a menu that is fresh, local and inventive. The open air dining room again features breathtaking vistas of the rainforest, the dramatic Pitons and the Caribbean Sea below.
The Spa at Ladera provides guests with an array of relaxing, wellness treatments inspired by St.Lucia’s rich volcanic history. Guests may enjoy treatments in The Spa, outdoors or in the privacy of their own suite or villa.
Be sure to schedule a relaxing treatment at The Spa, spend time in the fitness room or make your way to the volcano mud baths and springs only minutes away. A complimentary shuttle can take you to Sugar Beach, and activities such as wine tastings, cooking classes and island tours can be arranged.
Experience one of the suites at Paradise Ridge, or a private tasting in the Wine Cellar at Dasheene.
