From sunrise to sunset, Ladera Resort’s new weekly Sunrise Meditation and Sunset Tradition guest programming provide a thoughtful addition to a guest’s overall resort experience. The Sunrise Meditation experience encourages mindfulness by offering complimentary morning guided meditation classes adjacent to the main pool. At the end of each class, guests can enjoy a fresh pressed juice or smoothie. The Sunset Tradition gathers guests for a ringing of a bell at sunset which signals the start of small passed rum punches and traditional island music that plays until the sunsets. Guests are encouraged to mingle amongst one another and create lasting memories with the iconic Pitons as their backdrop. 

Ladera Resort is celebrating a milestone 30th anniversary in 2018 and its status as an iconic resort fully immersed in the beauty of St. Lucia, marked by thoughtful amenities and an attentive staff. Guests are treated to a 15-minute complimentary foot massage upon arrival and are welcomed by a refreshing tropical cocktail to officially let the vacation vibes settle in. In-room guest amenities include a “stargazing,” kit complete with binoculars and a planisphere fit for taking in the beauty of the compelling St. Lucian night sky and a rotating array of freshly baked pastries served pillow-side each evening.
