How it Ranks: Ladera ranks #3 out of 32 St. Lucia Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews. The hotel scored high enough to make the exclusive U.S. News list of the Best Hotels in the Caribbean.
- #3 in Best St. Lucia Hotels
Our Take: Prompting guests to appreciate their magnificent surroundings, the 32 suites at Ladera all boast an "open wall"—like a patio, minus the door—facing the dramatic Pitons and the Caribbean Sea. (Though this absent fourth wall takes luxury to the next level, don't be surprised if you wind up sharing your room with a harmless lizard or two.) Rooms also include your choice of a private plunge pool or waterfall pool. Because Ladera sits on a ridge at 1,100 feet, the resort isn't located directly on a beach. However, Ladera does provide complimentary shuttle service to Jalousie Beach on the western side of the island. Ladera also offers an abundance of activities, ranging from a Gros Piton hike to a sailing day trip to Marigot Bay. To experience the mountains in a more restful setting, arrange for an outdoor massage at The Spa. Previous visitors say you should also treat yourself to the field-to-fork eats at the on-site restaurant, Dasheene, but caution that the food is expensive.
