LaderaP.O. Box 225 St. Lucia,
What could be more perfect than getting married on a balcony overlooking the soaring Piton Mountains, a lush hillside of rainforest, and the glittering Caribbean over a thousand feet below? This truly memorable experience is surprisingly easy to arrange. We look forward to helping you plan the wedding of your dreams.
In December 2009, Ladera unveiled its new Paradise Pavilion, a dramatic open-air destination wedding venue destined to become the Caribbeanâ??s pre-eminent setting for ceremonies and receptions of up to 100 guests. The newly constructed Pavilion is located along Laderaâ??s extraordinary rainforest ridge, on previously undeveloped land adjacent to the hotel. Architecturally, the 1,200 square-foot Pavilion is a showpiece venue featuring the same renowned open-air design concept found throughout the resort with the famously unending panoramic views. The Pavilion is crafted in Laderaâ??s signature rainforest style, with terracotta flooring, columns milled and richly polished from tropical greenheart wood, as well as cut stone and tile work crafted by local St. Lucian masons.
Our wedding specialist will coordinate everything, including the facilities, floral arrangements, music, photography, videography, dining, cake, and any other services you may require. Special requirements should be requested prior to your arrival at Ladera, to ensure that your wedding day is perfect in every way.
Laderaâ??s ultra exclusive hideaway, Hilltop Dream Suite #X8, is connected to the Pavilion by a lushly landscaped private pathway, flanked by fountains and a reflecting pool which culminates in a stone archway, the picture-perfect spot for a bride to make her entrance.
The Hilltop Suite will function as a private place for the bridal party to dress, as well as a romantic honeymoon suite for the newly betrothed couple and will be packaged into the Paradise Pavilion rate. With a total of 32 rooms comprised of 6 Villas and 26 Suites, larger wedding parties of up to 80 overnight guests may choose to reserve the entire resort, depending on seasonal availability.
Wedding receptions will be catered by Laderaâ??s award-winning Dasheene restaurant, with customized menus by Executive Chef Orlando Satchell, known for his farm-to-table menu and emphasis on fresh, island ingredients and innovative West Indian cooking. Pre-wedding beauty services, as well as relaxing massages and wellness treatments, can be arranged at Laderaâ??s Ti Kaye PosÃ© Spa.
Ladera has also introduced a new online Gift Registry on Ladera.com, allowing couples celebrating their wedding, anniversary or any special occasion to create a â??Wish Listâ? of services, dining, spa treatments and sightseeing excursions during their stay. Resort credits may also be purchased in advance and can be applied to any services at Ladera.
Ladera’s electricity is 220 volts, 50 cycles (square, three-prong plug). Ladera will be more than happy to provide adaptors and transformers for guests who require them.
