The Experience

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. The suites are constructed of tropical hardwoods, stone and tile, furnished with 19th century French furniture or replicas, wicker and accessories crafted by local artisans. All units are decorated with local artwork and feature magnificent views of the Pitons and Caribbean Sea.

What will you remember?

The exquisite freshness and inventive flavors of the fresh local cuisine at Dasheene? Dining in the open air, high above the Caribbean Sea? The sumptuous pleasures of  The Spa? The welcoming island hospitality offered by the entire staff. Maybe lounging on warm sand on the beach at the base of the Pitons? Or possibly, what you will remember is simply the magically serene experience of being so separate from the rest of the world, surrounded by the sounds of the rainforest, at one with Ladera, and embracing all that it has to offer.


St. Lucia is a feast for the senses. From its mountains to its flora, and from its food to its people, the island beckons you to explore its lush terrain and to fall in love with its culture. Ladera is pleased to offer you a range of sightseeing activities on and around St. Lucia that will allow you to appreciate the uniqueness of its Caribbean history and the magnificence of its tropical location.
