Tranquility and romance are abundant in St Lucia’s Ladera Resort


Imagine floating in your very own private infinity pool far above the crystal blue Caribbean Sea, taking in the breathtaking tropical scenery around you.

Few experiences match being able to relax in a place that erases every problem from your mind while you gently unwind in exotic surrounds. But it’s the kind of one-off experience you can expect from the Ladera Resort.

Once part of the Rabot Estate, one of Soufrière’s oldest and most famous cocoa plantations, the property stands today as St Lucia’s most unique resort; the only one on the island that’s situated on a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Nestled on a volcano ridgeline 1,000 feet above the Caribbean Sea with uninterrupted views of the Pitons; as befits the resort’s eco-friendly eco-friendly philosophy, each suite is uniquely constructed from locally harvested tropical hardwoods, stone and tile. Furniture is made on site by St Lucian artisans.

Sporting an ‘open wall’ on one side, the room views remain totally unspoiled, while the free-form layout gives way to private plunge pool and waterfall which beckons you to take a dip at any time.

Suites vary from being single or dual floors, having heated or unheated pools with wooden swings and having either Queen or four poster beds. Whichever you choose - the accommodation is expertly designed with ultimate relaxation in mind.

The same goes for the resort amenities like the Desheen restaurant, which has an eclectic, stylish interpretation of St Lucian cuisine and offers a menu of fresh fish caught by the island’s fishermen and locally grown fruits and vegetable produce.

Guests can also let their troubles fall away with treatments at The Spa or with cocktails at The Bar.

Perhaps the key attraction to this hillside paradise however, is that it remains an adults-only property, offering total privacy while you unwind and indulge.

If you want to get out and explore the island – Ladera’s concierge team will be happy to organise off-site pursuits such as hiking and rainforest walks, sailing excursions and island tours.

The ideally retreat for honeymooners and romantics at heart – Ladera truly places the emphasis on upscale relaxation.
