Ladera Resort
Nature lovers and thrill seekers alike will find plenty to love at Ladera, located within St. Lucia’s UNESCO World Heritage Site. Perched on a ridge overlooking the iconic Piton mountains, 37 three-walled suites are open to the elements and everything that comes with them: the symphonic croaks of the rain forest but also no air-conditioning (the rooms are sited to capture sea breezes) and the occasional party crasher, usually small lizards or birds. In keeping with the eco-friendly focus, furniture throughout the property is crafted from local hardwoods by St. Lucian artisans, and in Dasheen, the on-site restaurant, Caribbean-Creole specialties such as roast conch with pickled vegetables and sweet potato and coconut soup are prepared with ingredients sourced from nearby farms and plantations.

Who stays in a room with three walls?
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.

The Urge to Stay Longer
Above you will see a photo that my wife took of me having the 'urge to stay longer.' How do you get to this moment you ask? Well first, you fly into one of two airports on St. Lucia: Hewanorra International Airport at Vieux Fort (UVF) or George F. L. Charles Airport(SLU), and take a cab or shuttle to the resort. Second, you check into Ladera which resides on an elevated perch that overlooks the Caribbean Sea and and the Piton Mountains, where every room is designed without a fourth wall. And third, you simply grab a drink and wait for the sunset. Congratulations, you should now be having the urge to stay longer. This is on the 10th and final day of our stay, thus the title of this image. 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. Longer.
