Ladera Resort St Lucia is renowned for accommodating weddings and honeymoons perfectly. It is known as a place ideal for lovers, and is one of the top-rated beach resorts for its intoxicating atmosphere and rich romantic feel. Designed to incorporate an intimate lodge feel, Ladera only has twenty private villas and suites on offer. Ladera Resort and Spa is the ideal place to really getaway and not be seen unless you want to be. Recharge and relax in a cozy hideaway amid the lush jungle of St Lucia.
Made from exotic, Caribbean timber, each building houses guestrooms created to bear semblance to tree houses. Not just any tree houses, though, but richly opulent ones that include a long list of lavish appointments. One of the most memorable parts of each guest suite is the absence of a fourth wall. Each suite exposes guests to the outdoors and introduces St Lucian ecology in a very befitting way. The affect is striking scenery at your doorstep and the ability to be almost seamless with outdoor surroundings. The telescopes provided in each room proffer the ability to navigate the starry skies at night, or scour the famous Piton peaks from afar.
Every one of the luxurious suites at Ladera Resort and Spa features a private pool screened in for the ultimate in seclusion and sheltered from the sometimes not-so-welcome elements. Ladera is one of the few adults-only beach resorts on St Lucia, and they take that rule quite seriously. During the Christmas holidays, the resort allows children between the ages of 7 and 14, and anyone over the age of fifteen is always welcome.
The noticeable absence of organized activities is another yet another nod to romance. Ladera in St Lucia aims at setting a backdrop for intimacy and privacy and not as much as playing the entertainer. For active pursuits, guests can choose between a host of tours and cruises, and other island activities including bird watching, shopping, snorkeling, and diving. More than 1,000-feet separates Ladera Resort St Lucia from sea level, adding yet another element of distance to the hideaway status. Beaches are not within walking distance, but are reachable by complimentary shuttle transportation to either Eden Bay, Anse Chastenat, or Jalousie Plantation.
If it's just a need for a swim, Ladera in St Lucia presents a stunning pool flanked by exotic flowering plants and highlighted by pool-side cocktail and snack service. The lack of in-room phones and scant internet access is another consideration for guests who visit Ladera Resort St Lucia to experience a true disconnect from the real world. Dining at the onsite restaurant is another way to enjoy a total sensory indulgence. Taste delicious, award-winning cuisine while sitting on an open-air terrace. Try tasty organic concoctions by the resident chef, and leader of the island's organic movement, at Ladera in St Lucia.
Last but certainly not least is the onsite Ladera Spa where facials, massages, pedicures, body wraps, scrubs, and other services will transport you into a state of complex relaxation. The scenery is simply spectacular especially from the spa where, while you're pampered, you'll look out onto a scene of tropical beauty. Exotic wood, carefully chosen stone, rich textiles, and gorgeous views come together to top off an unforgettable stay at Ladera Resort and Spa.
