Recently I was lucky enough to spend an amazing week in St. Lucia with my mom. We booked the trip a couple of months ago on a whim but it was truly amazing!
We stayed at the Ladera Resort which was situated between the two pitons (mountains) on the island. The pitons are a Unesco World Heritage site and after spending a week looking at them I can see why! The Ladera Resort was amazing with only twenty four or so rooms. Each room was ornately decorated and only had three walls. That’s right three walls. The fourth was completely open to the elements but the hotel as engineered so expertly that you never noticed it. Falling asleep every night to the sounds of the island was once in a lifetime.
In addition to the accommodations, the food at the resort was by far some of the best I’ve ever had. Every morning we were treated to fresh island fruit, rain forest juice, and baked island breads and pastries. Dinner was also tremendously good. The homemade ice cream was unlike anything I’ve ever had.
Although I was sad to leave, I was excited to get home and get started on all kinds of summer projects! Stay tuned for more:)
