Gorgeous hotel and gardens - what a view!

Posted Aug 6, 2016
Pros: The staff was friendly and attentive. Sher made us feel special right from the start! The view is to die for!!!
Location: Rum distillery tours and mud bath tours are available nearby. There is a shuttle available to take you to the beach.
With a view of the Pitons that makes you think you're in heaven, this was a trip of a lifetime for us. The gardens around the resort were filled with so many different varieties of plants and flowers, that we felt as if we were in a botanical garden. The open-air room was awesome! Having birds and butterflies fly into the room was wonderful! We thoroughly enjoyed the plunge pool in our room while drinking champagne. We fell asleep to the stars twinkling just outside our room and to the sound of crickets chirping. If you do not want nature that up close and personal, than this is not for you. Also, please be aware that there are steps/stairs EVERYWHERE so if you have problems walking, it would be best to stay elsewhere. We only wish we could have stayed more than one night so that we could have enjoyed the hot tubs (looked awesome) and taken the tour to the mud baths nearby.

Best experience in St. Lucia

Posted Jul 25, 2016
This resort is absolutely amazing! The view of the Pitons is breathtaking. You really connect with nature and its beauty! An all open concept really maximizes the over all experience. Yes there are bugs, but it doesn't take away from the amazing experience. The staff one of a kind!!!! As I left the owner hugged me. She was so welcoming!

Perfect romantic getaway nestled b/w the Pitons

Posted Jul 25, 2016
Pros: Location, views, rooms, service and food quality.
Cons: The food prices are high and then throw in the 10% VAT tax and 10% service gratuity on top of that (in line with others). As are the drink prices.
Location: Sulfur Springs, Sugar Beach, Jungle biking, chocolate tours, climbing Gros Piton, zip lines (may be worth shuttling on the other side of the island).
Great location nestled between Gros and Petit Piton. Great meals and excellent staff and service. Across the street from another great restaurant, Boucan at Hotel Chocolate. And a complimentary shuttle close to one of the best beaches on the island, Sugar Beach. Close to the town of Soufriere, but not a great location to visit or hang out, but driving through is fine. They do have a local grocery store though. I will say that we visited Jade Mountain, Anse Chastanet, Stone Field Estate and Sugar Beach Resort and were frankly unimpressed with Jade (i realize their marketing and PR makes you think otherwise, but sharing a resort and amenities with Anse is not that appealing for the price). Sugar Beach is impressive, but rather pricey and a bit stuffy, although worth a dinner by the beach and beach time. Ladera is the best value, experience and romantic getaway. The staff is impressive and will do the right thing no matter what. We would stay at Ladera again regardless of what you read about the bugs, etc. It is part of the romantic experience with views of Petit and Gros that blow your mind and pictures won't even be able to describe how gorgeous it is. The government runs the hikes up Gros Piton, but well worth it. If you are adventurous and in good shape, hire a guide to take you up Petit Piton (find Cameron Vauroque). The start is hard to find and safety should be your top priority with many ropes to get to the top.

A dream came true!

The resort was amazing! Quite location great for relaxing with an awesome view of the pitons. Although there was only 3 walls in the room, insects was not an issue at all if you keep spraying your self with the provided insect repellent. Hotel staff were very polite and friendly, they will go that extra mile to make you happy. We met the owner (Holly), who was very professional at what she does, wish her best of luck with Ladera.

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.
