The only resort in St Lucia overlooking the Pitons – two volcanic spires and a recognized Unesco World Heritage Site – with the shimmering Caribbean Sea below, Ladera is the ultimate romantic retreat. Each of the resort’s iconic suites is distinctively designed with the fourth wall missing, which lends to a very special atmosphere and the feeling of being in harmony with the lush surrounding rainforest. The 37 suites and villas offer complete privacy, with spectacular views and private pools. Paradise Ridge, the resort’s newest accommodation, boasts beautifully decorated, spacious suites, with local artwork and furniture made onsite, topped off with butler service. Dasheene, its renowned restaurant, serves authentic local cuisine. The Spa at Ladera offers a range of indulgent treatments.
