The only resort in Saint Lucia overlooking the Pitons — the two volcanic spires that are a Unesco World Heritage site — with the shimmering Caribbean Sea below, Ladera is the ultimate romantic retreat. Each of the resort’s distinctive suites is designed with one wall missing, creating a very special atmosphere and the feeling of being in harmony with the lush surrounding rainforest. The 32 suites and villas offer complete privacy, with spectacular views and private pools. Paradise Ridge, the resort’s newest accommodation, boasts spacious, beautifully decorated suites, with local artwork and furniture made on-site, topped off with butler service. Dasheene, Ladera’s renowned restaurant, serves authentic local cuisine. The Spa at Ladera offers a range of indulgent treatments.
