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.

This was recommended to us by sugar beach . Food and wine were good and service excellent . We wish we had gone for lunch to experience it in its full glory for the views . Only let down for us was it rushed

Ladera is as good as all the reviews say! The rooms are really well done -- great design so there's a nice breeze! We got a heated pool and it was definitely worth it. When we checked in, our room was the first after the restaurant and consequently a little loud (they have a band that plays until 9:30/10pm). The hotel was extremely accommodating with relocating us to a room further away the next day. The noise wasn't terrible and may not bother some at all but we were there for the nature sounds! The food at Ladera was very good (not outstanding). The cocktails however were outstanding! And the view from the restaurant area is so great, it makes each meal wonderful.

First I must say the staff at Ladera are incredibly friendly and amazingly helpful!!! I have read every Trip Advisor review for the last 8 months and I have no idea why anyone would have any complaints about the service or friendliness! Everyone was always greeting us with smiles and the staff were incredibly helpful! Ladera is the perfect resort for the nature-loving individual who wants a balance of peace and quiet along with some local entertainment, great food, and MIND-BLOWING VIEWS! It's a smaller more intimate resort with a wonderful uniqueness that separates it from your "Sandals" type resorts. We got to know several other couples staying at the resort and the drinks at sunset by the bar was definitely the highlight of several evenings! Lots of couples we spoke with seemed to split their time between Ladera and another resort up on the north side of the island which has more of a party type atmosphere if that's what you are after. We on the other hand, were extremely happy with our week stay in Soufriere! It wasn't enough time to explore all this wonderful part of the island has to offer!! I booked our stay through Chase Sapphire Reserve travel site and got a good deal on a room listed as "Superior Room". I tried, to no avail, to find out what kind of suite this was so I hope this review will help others in that regard who may book through 3rd party sites. I did email and request a pool that got a good amount of sunlight since everyone seems to recommend that you get a heated pool but this time around that simply wasn't in the budget. I'm thrilled to say that we were accommodated and our pool was excellent and had an incredible view! No foundation/waterfall but gorgeous flowers and the pool was cool but not cold. Our superior room was 2 floors with the bed (king) on the second floor with comfy chairs. The main floor had a lounge couch overlooking the pool and Pitons. The shower was open as well with a fantastic view! We had no issues with bugs since we mainly used our small reading lights under the mosquito netting in the evening. We did get a lot of bird visitors which were more entertainment then they were a nuisance! The hummingbirds were a great treat! The frogs and bugs are noisier at night but the ear buds provided by Ladera worked perfectly and I slept like a baby. When we arrived at Ladera (we rented a car because we prefer to be on our own timeline and explore as much or as little of the island as possible) we were greeted with cool lavender towels and a wonderful island punch. We were escorted strait to our room where I probably stood for 10 mins or more with my mouth open!! There was no rush to complete paperwork or "check-in" and our bags were brought up in short order. The room overall was clean and while some might consider it "dated" we thought the hand carved woodwork and ornate tiling were unique and charming. Honestly the 3 wall concept of Ladera reminded me of a 5 star version of Swiss Family Robinson!! I truly believe there is no other place like this in the entire world! We were given a little phone that we could use to call the resort for at any time. We decided then that due to our long journey we would do dinner at Dasheen that evening and the front desk made a reservation for us that very evening just before sunset! It was beyond perfect!!! (I will be doing a separate review of Dasheen). Throughout our stay the concierge was incredible at calling restaurants and getting us reservations for us almost every evening at the time we wanted! We ate at Dasheen twice and Boucan (across the street) twice. Other nights we tried other resorts and local places in town. It was honestly the perfect combination and I'm glad we didn't get the meal plan because it allowed us to try more places at our leisure. If you are adventurous and want to do more then sit at the resort the entire time I'd highly recommend renting a car! We did use the shuttle to go down to Sugar Beach which was great! We even missed the shuttle one afternoon and they sent it back for us. One negative perhaps management can look into is that the Sugar Beach resort owns all the nice cabanas and lounge chairs. We were completely prepared to pay for one and the beach was almost complete empty the morning we went. That said, after we had given our credit card to pay the crazy $100 fee for the day, one of the Sugar Beach employees came back and said that we would have to pay and then move to the very back row of chairs/cabanas. I wouldn't have minded so much had the beach not been almost empty! I think it would be great if Ladera management could work out a better relationship with Sugar Beach so guests might have a better experience. That aside I was incredibly happy with Ladera. We were able to plan a wine tasting with Dasheen's general manager and that was definitely the best dinner we had during our entire stay! Boucan is only a 5-10 min walk and the Sulphur Springs are maybe a 5 min drive. Tet Paul Trail is about a 10 min drive from Ladera and the Gros Piton Hike start is about a 20-25 min drive due to the winding road. If you choose to visit Jade Mountain (see my review on them) it's about a 25 min drive from Ladera. Getting into Soufriere only took about a 10 min drive. It's about a 45 min drive from the airport and if you LOVE horseback riding then you absolutely should visit Atlantic Shores Riding Stable(see my review on them)! It's about a 45 min drive as well! All in all our stay was amazing and it's a trip I will never forget!!! We definitely plan on returning!!! Thank you so much to all the staff and management who made our stay so wonderful!

Ladera was AMAZING! The pictures online are stunning and but it was SO MUCH BETTER in person! The view is unparalleled. The entire staff of Ladera was incredibly kind. The service we received was top notch. My husband was sunburnt and we asked if there was any aloe available. They brought fresh cut aloe to our room! We stayed in Room B, which is a Heritage Suite, that had a heated pool, which we think is worth the extra money. The food was expensive, but worth it and what we expected to pay. Everything we ate was great! We did a tour through Ladera to the volcano, mud baths, botanical gardens and waterfall. It was one of our favorite excursions. Although we did not pay for a private tour, it was just the 2 of us and our driver from Ladera who was so knowledgeable about the history of St. Lucia. I would recommend everyone to go to Ladera. It was truly a dream honeymoon!!

Went to Ladera Resort for our honeymoon and it was everything we could hoped it would be and a bit more. We were upgraded to Paradise Ridge in PR-5 and it was an amazing room. The big plunge pool, a shower as big as a bedroom and plenty of space to stretch out. We were never bothered by noise of any kind. We didn't hear the noise on the road, the birds were background noise and while we had some insects come in at night it was never anything we really noticed. We had two amazing butlers ( Keisher and Schol ) who made sure we had everything we needed without ever being intrusive. If you stay in PR and have these two as your butler's please treat them right as they deserve it! They delivered breakfast to our room every morning we requested it, brought wine when we asked for it and kept our fridge stocked everyday! I've seen comments about dining and service which wasn't exactly glowing. I can say this.....everything we ate was great, the service was top notch, and please believe me when I say that Elizabeth, Gibson, Leah, Jason, and everyone else that works at Dasheene are as good as it gets. We felt like celebrities every time we walked in. Employees knew us by name after the first day and we were treated like the most important people in the world. If you are looking to make tons of friends, party, and like Sandals/Secrets type resorts then this place isn't for you. Couples spend 80% of their time in rooms and once they are done with dinner its one or two drinks and then head back to their suites. The dinnertime / post dinner entertainment ranges from quiet to cool reggae bands. Drinks are always flowing and you can make this vacation whatever you want it to be. We did get off the resort a few times for excursions and everything was planned perfectly through the concierge. We also did massages in our room which was amazing. If you want the perfect getaway with amazing views, service, and time to yourselves then go to Ladera Resort.
