Ladera is near the town of Soufrière at the southern end of the Caribbean island of St. Lucia, one of the Lesser Antilles. By car, the resort is 40 minutes from Hewanorra International Airport and 90 minutes from George F.L. Charles Airport, which accommodates inter-island flights. Ladera provides an airport shuttle service. Ladera was once part of Rabot Estate, one of Soufrière’s oldest and most famous cocoa plantations. In 1982 it was transformed into an unique resort.
Taking full advantage of its natural surroundings, Ladera offers a unique design in guest accommodations. The 9 villas and 23 suites all have an “open wall” – the west side of each unit is left open to expose the breathtaking view, and the orientation of the buildings maintains complete privacy. The villas and suites are constructed of tropical hardwoods, stone and tile, furnished with 19th century French furniture or replicas, wicker and accessories crafted by local artisans. All units are decorated with local artwork and feature magnificent views of the Pitons and Caribbean Sea.
