Surreal

Virginia Beach, Virginia

My wife and I saved up for a big trip to celebrate a huge milestone and Ladera did not disappoint. We have been to exotic places and this location took our breath away. We stayed in a Hilltop Suite with a private pool and open view. The room was phenomenal and out of this world. There is no better view on the planet.

Ladera... next-level vacationing

Augusta, GA

My husband and I never want to leave. I have never felt so relaxed and free. The staff is incredible (Yvette, Caroline, Octivina, Jenny, Vianney, Lee, Bartholomew, and the list goes ON AND ON). No one beats their customer service... not even Disney World- no hyperbole. 😁 Every person we have encountered, from taxi to cleaning staff to concierge, has been excited to help us and to meet our needs before we even anticipate them. Ladera Resort could be in the middle of a wasteland and I would vacation here because of how amazing the staff and accommodations are. But, they are located in perhaps the most beautiful place I have encountered (my husband and I love to travel...) and positioned perfectly between the Pitons. Rarely is it possible today to travel to an amazing place that feels untouched by rampant tourism, but Soufriere is exactly this place. It is beautiful in its simplicity and history/culture, and local Lucians continue to cultivate and appreciate the land, rather than exploit it. Let me also say, as someone who considers camping outdoors to be a special kind of hell and resists it at all costs, the open concept of Ladera is exquisite and should not be a deterrent AT ALL to booking this resort. The winds at night make the room temperature more than comfortable (even pleasantly chilly at times), and the heat during the day is easily escapable with the personal plunge pools in each room, fans upon request or as part of the room setup, and PLENTY of shade in your room or on the premises. If there is ANY discontent with your accommodations, the staff will make it right and provide you with exactly the experience you anticipated when planning your vacation- we have discovered this first hand. My husband and I are always looking for a new location and new experience, but we are already planning our next trip here, even if it means we miss out on a new adventure... LADERA IS THAT EXCEPTIONAL! Love- The Campbell’s 🥰
