Best hotel in the universe
Posted Jul 11, 2016 on Hotels
My girlfriend and I had the pleasure of staying at Ladera for two nights during a 5-night getwaway for July 4th. Ladera was EPIC, the new standard to judge vacations by, and will be hard to top. Huge WOW factor. It exceeded our expectations, which were already high. We stayed in Suite S, in the middle of the Pitons, and didn’t leave the hotel for the first day and night. The view is out of this world. Pictures cannot do it justice. Ladera is IN the Pitons; I could have thrown a baseball to Petit Piton.
The grounds are breathtakingly beautiful, and we had the pool and hot tubs to ourselves both days. The mosquito nets work perfectly, didn't get a single bite. Also we heard in a couple reviews that you can hear people in the suite next to you- we didn't experience that problem in the least, and that is something that would bother me for sure. The sounds of nature were so relaxing.
Holly, the owner, was super friendly and welcoming, warm and genuine. The benefits of having an on-site owner were readily apparent; everything ran like clockwork. The staff were super friendly and welcoming, and also warm and genuine, clearly following Holly's lead.
We enjoyed taking the shuttle to Sugar Beach, which we found to be the most beautiful on the island. Mud baths (no tour) and Piton hike also awesome.
Highly recommend Ladera. Well worth the money for what you get. We are already planning to return ASAP.
