Ladera Resort


A thousand feet below, an intensely blue Caribbean Sea dashes against the volcanic Piton Mountains. Faintly scented tropical breezes cool your skin. Your private plunge pool beckons. Each offers fine linens, luxurious amenities and four-poster beds made of polished tropical hardwood. And each, deliberately without a fourth wall, invites the spectacular sunsets and astonishing views right inside, to be a part of your very private, very special retreat.

About Ladera


The exquisite freshness and inventive flavors of the fresh local cuisine at Dasheene? Dining in the open air, high above the Caribbean Sea? The sumptuous pleasures of The Spa? The welcoming island hospitality offered by the entire staff. Maybe lounging on warm sand on the beach at the base of the Pitons? Or possibly, what you will remember is simply the magically serene experience of being so separate from the rest of the world, surrounded by the sounds of the rainforest, at one with Ladera, and embracing all that it has to offer.
