Ladera in Soufriere, Saint Lucia

There is no fourth wall in villas at Ladera – instead, there is the jaw-dropping backdrop of the Pitons, two mountainous volcanic spires that attract adventure-seekers from across the world. A faint tropical breeze wafts from the Caribbean Sea far below through netting on a four-poster bed carved from polished tropical hardwood. Incentive to leave your room can be found in chef Nigel Mitchel's creative interpretation of traditional island fare – try the roast conch served with organic vegetables from the neighboring plantation.

Wake up to the sounds of the rainforest. Walk among them on lush grounds that used to be a cocoa plantation. Float under the cascading waterfall of your private plunge pool, watching parrots and orioles drifting on air currents over the treetops. Sip sweet potato and coconut soup at the clifftop open-air restaurant. Watch the stars create an unobstructed canopy over the ocean, spotting constellations on your suite's star chart.

We spent part of our honeymoon at Ladera and do not regret it! We were welcomed with open arms (and cocktails!), upgraded to a beautiful suite that made our jaws literally drop, and had delicious food for all meals of the day from their Dasheene restaurant. The staff was so hospitable, making us feel like royalty. It was a nice added feature that they provide a shuttle to/from Sugar Beach daily so we were able to enjoy the beach as well during our stay. One tip, if you are not accustom to noise at night from animals surrounding the area then make sure you have headphones. They did provide us with earplugs in the room! Overall, unforgettable place that is a shouldn't be missed even if it is for just a meal at Dasheene when visiting St.Lucia!

This resort is simply an experience. Our open air room had a view of the Pitons that was almost surreal. We enjoyed birds who would come to visit. The temperature was just perfect and you controlled your breeze by opening or closing the louvers on the windows. All of the resort employees were very professional and committed to giving the guests five star service. When we return someday, we will likely upgrade to a heated pool. I've never had a more relaxing and restorative vacation in my life.

Ladera was the most amazing hotel I've ever stayed at. It was 5 star at every detail. The staff was incredible, especially Tenderlee. They were always so inviting, knew our names, smiled, laughed with us. Truly top notch. They await for you with a sign at the airport. Greet you with fresh rum-punch. Show you your amazing room (your jaw will drop). They upgraded us to a suite when we said it was our Honeymoon, room "G." What a view! 2 stories, plunge pool, the works. You'll never get tired of the absent 4th wall. Fridge with fresh beers (stocked daily - free of charge). The grounds are beautiful. The restaurant is lovely, great views once again. Pricey, but expected. The continental breakfast was okay (free daily), needs a little added protein (meat), but overall it fills you up. The "Tomelette" was really good. The light bites menu was our favorite, the Piton Burger is one of best burgers in the world! A cold Piton beer added to the deliciousness. It's a 15 minute ride (free shuttle) to the beach that leaves/returns 3 times a day. Great beach down there, fun to look up back at the resort a 1000 feet into the rainforest. One night I was really hot. I called the front desk and they brought me a personal standing fan and even turned down the water temperature in our private pool! Amazing! All in all, this place was incredible. If you're looking for the best resort/hotel in St. Lucia, this is it.

My wife and I recently celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary and my wife’s 60th birthday at Ladera and we can't say enough about this unique resort. From when we first stepped of the plane and were met by a person holding a Ladera sign who greeted us with a warm smile and swiftly navigated us through the crowded airport to our waiting car and driver, to when we reluctantly said our last goodbyes to the friendly staff, everything about Ladera was perfect. We knew from the pictures we had seen on line and the reviews we had read that the resort was beautiful and had amazing views of the ocean below, but what we experienced at Ladera far exceeded our expectations. We stayed in the Heritage Suite E, which was an upgrade from our requested Hilltop Dream Suite.To say our room was lovely would be an understatement with its elaborate wood carvings throughout and spectacular private pool overlooking the Pitons, and the grounds adorned with lush and varied plant life were nothing short of gorgeous. The Dasheene restaurant, with its separate levels for breakfast/lunch, fine dining and lounge/bar, was fabulous and the food was delectable. I don’t think my wife and I have ever had filet mignon that tasted as good as prepared by the chef at Dasheene, it literally melted in your mouth. We could go on and on about the beauty of the resort, the amazing views and the fabulous food, but what sets Ladera apart is the staff. They all went above and beyond to make our stay special. Every person we came in contact, from the people at the front desk, to the servers, to the shuttle drivers and even the person who trims the plants and grass, all went out of their way to greet us warmly and make us feel welcome, and most of those people knew us by name, many by first name. It is that kind of hospitality that makes Ladera special. Of particular note, were the evening bar staff, who got the guests up dancing to the nightly entertainment. My wife and I love to dance so it didn’t take too much coxing to get us up on the floor, but the servers and bar tenders joining us made our after dinner drinks a lot of fun. My wife and I have travelled a lot through Europe and the Mediterranean and to Hawaii, always at five star resorts, and we know and appreciate good service. Ladera is certainly a unique resort with its open air rooms, private pools, elaborate wood carvings and of course, the amazing views, but it is the exceptional service and hospitality that puts Ladera at the top of our list. The wonderful staff certainly made our special celebration even more special.

We have spent a day and a half here and everyone knows our names and what we enjoy. We have a lovely room with a plunge pool. the cold pool suits us fine from the heat of the day. We're from Chicago and the pool really feels good
