Ladera Named Top Ten Caribbean Resort
by Travel + Leisure Magazine Readers in World's Best Awards 2011
July 20, 2011 Soufrière, St. Lucia, West Indies – Results of the Travel + Leisure magazine annual World"s Best Awards 2011 Readers" Survey are announced in the August issue, on newsstands this week. This year, Ladera is among the top ten favorite Caribbean resorts, the only hotel in St. Lucia named in the top ten ranking. Since being named Best Hotel in the World in 2006, Ladera has retained a privileged place among the discriminating, well traveled T+L readers.
Situated on a forested ridge at 1,100 feet overlooking the volcanic Piton Mountains and the Caribbean Sea, Ladera is St. Lucia"s most authentic resort. It is a rainforest hideaway with just 32 rooms, each intentionally built without a fourth wall, allowing astounding views of the twin volcanic peaks, a designated UNESCO World Heritage site, and the azure coastline below. Ladera"s interiors are designed to be at one with the natural setting; handmade four poster Colonial beds crafted locally from polished tropical hardwoods, artisan stone tile work and natural cotton textiles made on island. The award-winning Dasheene restaurant is recognized as one of the top tables in the Caribbean, serving innovative West Indian cooking. Ladera also features the intimate Ti Kaye Posé Spa and a spectacular 1,200 square foot Paradise Pavilion destination wedding venue for up to 80 guests.
"Ladera is honored to continue its legacy as a T+L reader favorite," remarked Holly Scott, Ladera"s Owner Representative. "We strive to provide our guests with the most truly St. Lucian experience, be it for a wedding, a honeymoon, a sunset dinner or simply the vacation of a lifetime – the very elements that Travel + Leisure readers value when choosing the best. More than anything else, it is the outstanding service provided by our excellent staff that has earned the recognition and admiration of T+L readers."
