Ladera, located 1,100 feet above the Caribbean Sea directly between the Piton Mountains, was once one of Soufrière’s oldest and most famous cocoa plantations and transformed in 1982 into the unique resort it is today. Taking full advantage of its natural surroundings, Ladera offers a distinctive design in guest accommodations with its “open wall” concept. The west side of all 37 suites and villas is left open to expose the breathtaking views while maintaining complete privacy. The suites are constructed of tropical hardwoods, stone and tile, furnished with 19th century French furniture or replicas, wicker and accessories crafted by local artisans. Ladera also offers a
“platinum-level” experience with the addition of Paradise Ridge, a new collection of four suites and one villa blended into the northern edge of the property. All units are decorated with local artwork and feature magnificent views of the Piton Mountains and Caribbean Sea.
