U.S. News Review
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 Sugar 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.
