Ladera is a St. Lucia eco-lodge with nine villas and 23 suites, offering luxurious treehouse-style living at an altitude of 1,100 feet, surrounded by lush rainforest. Guest rooms are designed with three walls to give spectacular, unobstructed views, while remaining completely private.

Ladera has received awards from Condé Nast Traveler readers and Travel + Leisure.

Dream suites

Luxurious, open-air Dream Suites are on a ridge south of Dasheene restaurant, on a slightly higher elevation than the rest of the property. Each Dream Suite is intentionally set apart from the other rooms to provide an ultra-private escape, ideal for honeymooners.

The Dream Suites have the same elegant tropical architecture as all suites and villas, using polished hardwoods, luxurious white linens and colorful tiles in the bath areas. A private deck and spiral staircase lead to a private pool in the Dream Suites.

The St. Lucia resort provides dedicated concierge services for the suites and two-bedroom villas.

Ladera offers scheduled boat shuttle service to beaches, including the secluded beach at Anse Jambette, a small bay just 20 minutes by boat from the Soufrière dock.

Diamond Mineral Baths

Ti Kaye Posé features rainforest massages outdoors beneath a tent in the lush tropical gardens beside the Spa. The tranquil setting is an area for post-treatment relaxation.

The St. Lucia hotel also has a gym with treadmills, yoga mats, weights and a Universal work-out machine.

Hot tubs are complimentary to all Ladera guests, who can relax in them as part of their pre- or post-massage routine, or use them to relax after a day hiking the Pitons or sunbathing.

Optional tours bring Ladera guests to Diamond Botanical Garden where they can soak in restorative mineral waters from the source near Soufrière (French for sulfur).

Originally built in 1785, just before the French revolution, with funds from King Louis XVI, it is rumored that Napoleon's Empress Josephine bathed in these waters.
