Who stays in a room with three walls?

Large arrow left

It sounds like a riddle, but that is the exact question my wife and I asked ourselves when we learned about Ladera Resort in Soufriere, Saint Lucia. After doing our research, the question for us became 'who doesn't want to stay in a room like this?' You can fly into one of two airports: Hewanorra International Airport at Vieux Fort (UVF) or George F. L. Charles Airport(SLU), and take a cab or shuttle to the resort. Ladera resides on an elevated perch that overlooks the Caribbean Sea and and the Piton Mountains, and every room is designed without a fourth wall. Yeah, it's just not there. And no, there is most definitely not a bug problem. This eco-friendly resort is definitely one with nature, and lends itself to complimenting, not harming, it's surrounding environment. Food on the island is unmatched, with several established chefs making St. Lucia a permanent home (wouldn't you?). For the adventurous, there are numerous outdoor activities from zip lines, to scuba diving, to sailing and many more. So if you are someone who likes top notch lodging, with a little bit of an adventurous edge, Ladera is your place to stay.
