Ladera Resort

St Lucia

Exclusively for Adults
Good for Couples
Private Pools

  • A luxury, adults only eco lodge resort designed with local and sustainable materials
  • Relax in private villas, each with a private plunge pool
  • Couples will love the award winning restaurant and private wine cellar 
  • Set on the dramatic cliffs near Soufriere, enjoy a rainforest walk or dolphin cruise

The unique Ladera Resort is set on a tropical crest, soaring 1,000 feet above the Caribbean Sea below. This eco lodge, designed and built using local and sustainable materials, offers scenic views of the sparkling waters and the Pitons, and was designed with the environment and conservation in mind.

Ladera was made for romance and honeymoons, with each luxury suite offering a private plunge pool and sophisticated, Caribbean inspired design, complete with open air sitting rooms. Dine at the award winning restaurant, take part in wine tastings, or opt to eat privately in the Wine Cellar. This adults-only property is designed with luxury and indulgence in mind, but if you can tear yourself away from the resort, consider a sunset champagne cruise, a dolphin watching sail, or a rainforest hike, which can all be organised by the hotel.

About the location

The welcoming town of Soufriere, nestled along the Western coast of St Lucia, has French origins, which are reflected in its charm and character. Its colonial architecture never fails to impress, while the colourful, bustling seafront are is ideal for people watching. Explore the town’s authentic Creole restaurants, and hop between local bars, sampling the island’s famous rums.

Qualibou volcano, now dormant, provides the sulphur hot springs that are seen in the area, and it creates unbelievable views as it majestically extends out of the sea below. Also make time for the Pitons, two gigantic volcanic spires on either side of the bay, which have been awarded UNESCO World Heritage status. If you prefer to simply relax, head to Anse Chastanet, a sparkling turquoise bay surrounded by dramatic mountains and rainforest.
