What is a recommended Caribbean small luxury hotel?

French West Indies Small Luxury Hotel

Ladera, located in southwestern Saint Lucia, Ladera is 2 miles from the port town of Soufriere, on a hillside of mango trees. There are just six villas and 21 suites at this luxury boutique hotel. Each guest suite was built without a fourth wall, allowing gorgeous views of the island's two volcanic Piton peaks and the coastline below. However, the suites are still sheltered, safe, and completely private. The open wall in all suites and villas leads to a private plunge pool and tropical landscaping.

Dining: Dasheene offers eclectic, innovative cuisine. Local and international delicacies, combined with the view, are exceptional.

Spa: Ti Kai Posé, in the local patois means “little house of rest.” The spa features treatments inspired by St. Lucia's volcanic history and the lush rainforest that surrounds this peaceful retreat. Treatments are available in the spa facility or in the privacy of your suite or villa. Or try the "Rainforest Massages" outdoors beneath a tent in the spa garden. All Ladera guests can use the Mineral Pools in the spa garden. The water is drawn directly from the source at the Diamond Mineral Baths near Soufrière.

Deluxe Touch: Stay in the Hilltop Dream Suite, with its open living room with views of the Pitons and Caribbean Sea with adjacent open bedroom. You have a private pool with waterfall 1,100 feet above the Caribbean Sea!
