My husband and I just spent the last 3 day of our Honeymoon at Ladera in a Gros Piton Suite. You will have amazing views anywhere you go in this resort, whether it is the restaurant, bar, pool or your room. In terms of decor, I would say that my room was rustic-chique. And with the exposed 4th wall, you are essentially 'glamp-ing'. You need to be okay with lizards and birds in your room, but that said, your bed is very well protected under a bug-netting canopy. My husband loved the plunge pool. I would suggest keeping the fountain running to avoid hearing your neighbors (a tip from another reviewer). The staff is very friendly and they will remember you and your room number in no time at all. They truly do their best to please and make sure that your stay is all that you wanted it to be. In terms of food, we ate at Dasheene the first night. It was delicous but very expensive. The second night we had small plates at the bar for dinner and that worked out very well - delicous and much less expensive! The vegetable phyllo pastry and the saltfish accras were my favorites. In terms of amenities, I enjoyed a relaxing day lounging at the pool with my book while my husband hiked up the Gros Piton. The views are to die for. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Ladera. You go there for the view, relaxation and the unique experience of open-air living. We would definitely go back for an anniversary when we can afford one of the swankier rooms (although we did love our room and view).
I couldn't believe this place,,,,,heaven on earth with an amazing view!! Worth every single $$!!
We just have returned from our 3rd visit to The Ladera Resort. The views from the newly renovated suite M were absolutely spectacular and provided an amazing view of the ocean and the great Pitons right in front of us. Not only did we enjoy the great food in the Dasheene restaurant but also the nightly entertainment provided by local artists. We certainly are planning to go back and can highly recommend Ladera to anyone who is looking for a very unique resort.
My wife and I stayed 8 nights in the hill top dream suites and had an amazing time. We traveled around the entire island and there is no place as beautiful as Ladera. The views are peerless. The staff at Ladera are amazing as well. You will be amazed at how friendly and attentive they are. The staff make you feel like you're one of the family (well, the lazy one that gets everyone else to cook and clean). It's just an amazing place. We're planning on going back to St. Lucia and we wouldn't consider staying anywhere else.
I was upgraded from the Gros Piton suite to a one bedroom villa upon arrival. The views were stunning and the room was as unique as you'd expect. Plunge pool was great. I had a few issues though given the location of the room (closest to entrance and restaurant). It could get a bit noisier than I would've liked. I would have preferred a greater sense of exclusion. There was a lot of movement from cars pulling up and you could hear guests hanging out by the lounge areas just beyond the walls of our room. Also, there was a small gap between the wall separating my plunge pool and that of my neighbors. Less savory guests could have peeped in if they liked. The hotel can easily solve the problem by covering up these small spaces. I forgot to pack sandals and when I asked staff if they could help, I was told I'd have to take a taxi into town and find some. Not what you want to hear after paying a decent amount of money to stay in the hotel. I later found a pair in the hotel gift shop, which irritated me further. The food was great. Although, on our last night, we were put into a completely empty part of the restaurant. I thought the much livelier upper level may have been closed for a special event, but when I asked, I was told this was merely because they wanted to give the waitress covering our dim lower level business. This hotel is very expensive - not just rooms, but the price of everything once you're there, so be prepared. Be ready for bugs in the rooms at night. The mosquito nets do a decent job, but they will find there way in and I'm still itching. Frogs and lizards, too. It is to be expected though, so I didn't really mind. We were provided with beach chairs to visit Anne Chastenet beach. One was broken. The service to and from this beach is infrequent, so when we missed an early morning shuttle to and from, we had to pay our way. Despite my negativity, the hotel was overall beautiful and you simply cannot beat the view.
St Lucia is an absolutely gorgeous island. The views are spectacular and the people warm and friendly. We found Ladera to be the perfect place for our second honeymoon. It is secluded, up on a hill looking down to the ocean between the two pitons. At first the concept of no fourth wall was a bit scary. However, we loved it! You really experience the beauty of St Lucia. I would recommend this island and resort in a heartbeat!
My husband and I spend 1 week at the Ladera Resort for our honeymoon this summer. We were greeted by the manager and by staff who were exceptionally courteous and friendly. The resort is unique in that all of the guest rooms are open - so we had fresh air, light breezes and a gorgeous view of the Pitons and ocean below, all from our room. We really did not have any issues with bugs or moths since the room was open unless we left the lights on for a long time at night. The beaches were just a short shuttle ride away, and the hotel had complimentary snorkeling equipment to use. The resort's restaurant had an amazing dinner menu; every entree that we had was amazingly delicious! We took advantage of the resorts room service menu for breakfast on several occasions, and were delighted with the spread of local fruit, fresh baked breads, omelets, papaya jams, juices and coffee. We truly could not think of a single complaint for this resort while we were staying there, and we didn't want to leave!! We have been recommending Ladera to all of our family and friends ever since!
Unlike everyone else at Ladera I was not there on my honeymoon but rather celebrating my 30th birthday. From the minute you arrive the staff is helpful, welcoming and great! Once you check in you are escorted to your room and let me tell you the view is breath takingly amazing. Every room has a view of the Pitons and the Carribean Sea. There is no tv or phone and of course no fourth wall in your room. There is free WIFi in every room so you are not completely cut off from the world, they also have a computer with internet access at the front desk you may use for free. The resort provides free shuttles to and from the beach throughout the day which are pretty reliable. The Dasheen restaurant is a bit pricey but well worth it and delicious. Chef Orlando is great! Unless, you despise the outdoors and wildlife you will absolutely love this place.This was by far one of the best vacations I have ever had!
This hotel was absolutely everything we hoped for when booking our trip for our anniversary. The open-air rooms are romantic and unique. Each comes with a private plunge pool which was not heated and was quite cool, but very refreshing. The food at the restaurant is wonderful. My husband is a chef and even he was impressed. We usually don't opt for a meal-plan when traveling since we like to explore the local area a bit, and next time we will certainly pay for the plan at Ladera. The hotel restaurant was better than anywhere else in town and the view cannot be beat. Plus, the drinks themselves are expensive and we would have been better off with the plan.
I have stayed at Ladera in St. Lucia about four times over the years. It is by far the most spectacular hotel I have ever stayed in (I have travelled quite a bit). The food is delicious, the swinging chairs within our own personal pool were very romantic, friendly staff, wonderful massage and not to mention the chef made me a birthday cake from scratch made with real cocoa which was completely mouthwatering. This place is ideal for any situation as long as you enjoy relaxing and taking in the breathtaking view. No complaints whatsoever. I have no idea why I have found some reviews online that aren't 100% impressed. I have stayed four times at Ladera and everytime it has been irreplaceable and phenomenal. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
