Ladera was once part of the Rabot Estate, one of Soufrière’s oldest and most famous cocoa plantations. In 1982 it was transformed into the unique resort it is today. Taking full advantage of its natural surroundings, Ladera offers a unique design in guest accommodations. Each of the 37 rooms and suites has an “open wall” – the west side of each unit is left open to expose breathtaking views of the Pitons and the ocean, while the orientation of the rooms ensures complete privacy for all guests.
All suites are constructed of tropical hardwoods, stone and tile and furnished with locally crafted wood furniture, fixtures and accessories and artwork.
Restaurants & Bars
Guests and visitors flock to Dasheene to enjoy the spectacular views and award-winning cuisine. Best known for eclectic and innovative menu items, Dasheene is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Dasheene sets itself apart by focusing on sustainable cooking sourced from locally harvested ingredients. Executive Chef Nigel Mitchel and his staff are dedicated to showcasing fresh native ingredients from island farmers and neighbouring plantations that grow their produce primarily for the resort. Chef Nigel’s cooking renders stylish interpretations of traditional St. Lucian dishes, such as sweet potato and coconut soup, Caribbean lamb salad, roast conch with pickled vegetables served in a yam basket, Cajun Creole vegetable bakes, jerk poulet sausage, plantain gratin with coconut rum sauce and more.
Dasheene Bar and Lounge
Open from 9am each day, the Bar is a perfect setting for a pre-dinner cocktail or to enjoy a live music from top local musicians every day from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Part of Dasheene Restaurant, the Bar shares the same unobstructed sea views flanked by St. Lucia’s signature twin volcanic Piton peaks.
