About the hotel
Once part of the Rabot Estate, one of Soufrière’s most famous cocoa plantations, Ladera Resort stands as St. Lucia’s most unique and luxurious resort and the only resort situated on a UNESCO World Heritage site. A setting unlike any other, on a volcano ridgeline 1,000 feet above the Caribbean Sea with stunning views of the Pitons, the resort’s intimate design, of just 37 rooms and suites, offers the perfect setting for forging a connection to the romance and lifestyle of St. Lucia. Befitting the resort’s eco-friendly philosophy, each is uniquely constructed from locally harvested tropical hardwoods, stone and tile. Furniture is made on site by St. Lucian artisans. Your suite’s “open wall” gives way to a private plunge pool and magnificent views of the Pitons with attentive staff available to meet any need. Amenities are designed with ultimate relaxation in mind, from authentic culinary experiences at Dasheene to indulgent treatments at The Spa at Ladera.
- Pioneer of the open wall concept, every suite opens to views of the Pitons and Caribbean Sea
- Ladera is the only resort in St. Lucia located in between the World Famous Pitons
