The resort’s intimate design, with just 37 rooms and suites, offers a picture-perfect visual for forging a connection to the beauty, romance, and lifestyle of St. Lucia. Befitting the resort’s 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.
What truly sets Ladera Resort apart is your suite’s “open wall” which gives way to a private plunge pool and magnificent views of The Pitons and Caribbean. Ladera is a sky-scraping escape for the Valentine’s couple looking to become one with nature. www.ladera.com
