Ladera is Saint Lucia’s original, adults only, ultra luxury, open-air hotel.

All of the three walled villas at Ladera boast private plunge pools overlooking the famous Piton mountains, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Caribbean Sea and the Soufrière valley.

Ladera is known for its distinctive eco-lodge architecture, built with Caribbean timbers and modeled on luxury tree-house living and a relaxed, barefoot lifestyle. This is the ultimate eco experience but be prepared to wake up with lizards on your wall.

Villas and suites were intentionally built without a fourth wall, yet are designed to be sheltered, safe and completely private. The design affords spectacular sunset views and unobstructed star gazing at night. Mosquito nets are available in each suite

The Resort’s Dream Suites are largest and most popular with two levels of living space as well as butler service for the entirety of the stay. Designed in Ladera’s elegant, tropical architecture using polished hard woods, crisp white linens, colorful tile and stonework by local artisans, these suites are truly dream-worthy. Plus, they include a private deck and a spiral staircase that leads to a private plunge pool.
