The ‘Open Wall’ Resort in St. Lucia [20 pics]
Located just outside of Soufrière, St. Lucia, the Ladera Resort features 9 villas and 23 suites with an ‘open wall’ where the west side of every unit is left open and exposed to the breathtaking views of the Piton Mountains and Caribbean sea.
Every room also comes with a private plunge pool, with the orientation of the rooms carefully planned to maintain complete privacy for guests. Situated on a forested ridge 1,100 feet high, the views are unparalleled. The Ladera opened in 1992 and the eco-style lodge has won countless travel awards and honours in its 20 years of business.
The resort is built with Caribbean timbers and modeled on luxury tree-house living, and a relaxed, barefoot lifestyle. The rooms are furnished with 19th century French furniture or replicas, wicker and accessories crafted by local artisans. All units are also decorated with local artwork.
There are spas, restaurants and all of the activities you would expect from a top-tier resort. Below you will find a gallery of this beautiful ‘open wall’ concept resort. Rates vary depending on season and room from $400-$1425 a night. Be sure to visit ladera.com for all inquiries.
