Ladera Re­sort re­ceives Hall of Fame Award

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Ladera Re­sort, St Lu­cia, has been rec­og­nized as a TripAd­vi­sor® Cer­tifi­cate of Ex­cel­lence Hall of Fame win­ner. The Cer­tifi­cate of Ex­cel­lence award cel­e­brates ex­cel­lence in hos­pi­tal­ity and is given only to es­tab­lish­ments that con­sis­tently achieve great trav­eller re­views on TripAd­vi­sor. The Hall of Fame award was cre­ated to hon­our those busi­nesses that have earned a Cer­tifi­cate of Ex­cel­lence for five con­sec­u­tive years.

"I ap­pre­ci­ate the op­por­tu­nity to lead such a great team and am thank­ful to work with such ded­i­cated peo­ple! Ev­ery­one em­ployed at Ladera de­serves recog­ni­tion for this achieve­ment," says Olivier Bot­tois, who has over­seen the man­age­ment of the re­sort since 2011.

Ladera, lo­cated 1,100 feet above the Caribbean Sea di­rectly be­tween the Pitons, was once one of Soufrière’s old­est and most fa­mous co­coa plan­ta­tions and was trans­formed in 1982 into the unique re­sort it is to­day. Tak­ing full ad­van­tage of its nat­u­ral sur­round­ings, Ladera of­fers a dis­tinc­tive de­sign in guest ac­com­mo­da­tions with its “open wall” con­cept. The west side of all 37 suites and vil­las is left open to ex­pose the breath­tak­ing views while main­tain­ing com­plete pri­vacy. The suites are con­structed of trop­i­cal hard­woods, stone and tile, and are fur­nished with 19th cen­tury French fur­ni­ture or repli­cas, wicker and ac­ces­sories crafted by lo­cal ar­ti­sans.

Ladera also of­fers a “plat­inum-level” ex­pe­ri­ence with the ad­di­tion of Par­adise Ridge, a new col­lec­tion of four suites and one villa blended into the north­ern edge of the prop­erty. All units are dec­o­rated with lo­cal art­work and fea­ture mag­nif­i­cent views of the Pitons and the Caribbean Sea.
