South of the old French capital of Soufrière, Ladera Resort is arrayed on a forested mountain ridge 305 meters (1,000 feet) above the Caribbean Sea between the St. Lucia’s signature twin Piton spires.
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. Suites consists of private plunge or heated pools, but no air conditioning, TVs, or phones. The resort has a sundeck, and an open-front restaurant/lounge all offer panoramic views and shuttles take guests to the beaches daily.
The Spa at Ladera Resort offers romantic massages in the suites, or a trip to the Sulphur Springs for a Sulphur Mud Wrap.
