Ladera was once part of Rabot Estate, one of Soufrière’s oldest and most famous cocoa plantations.
In 1982 it was transformed into the unique resort it is today. Taking full advantage of its natural surroundings, Ladera offers a unique design in guest accommodations. The 32 suites all have an “open wall” – the west side of each unit is left open to expose the breathtaking view, and the orientation of the buildings maintains complete privacy.
As one of the top St. Lucia resorts, the suites are constructed of tropical hardwoods, stone and tile, furnished with locally crafted wood furniture, fixtures and accessories. All units are decorated with local artwork and feature magnificent views of the Pitons and Caribbean Sea.
Prepare to be embraced by the lush colours and wild calls of our “naturally” exotic surroundings.
Guests in all of the 32 suites enjoy:
• An open wall in each suite, which transports you directly into the midst of our surrounding hillside paradise, while offering complete privacy and safety.
• A private plunge heated or non-heated pool, some with cascading waterfalls, which beckons you to enjoy a refreshing dip with your morning coffee or a relaxing break at any time of the day or night.
In addition, Ladera is pleased to offer:
• Nightly turn down service.
