Concierge.com's insider take:
Around the bay from Anse Chastanet is the newer, sleeker, but otherwise somewhat similar 25-unit Ladera. Accommodations here (there are rooms, and one- and two-bedroom villas) have no phones, TVs, or AC, and, crucially, no fourth walls. Instead there are Piton panoramas, along with in-room treatments by the hotel's new spa, and private plunge pools for romantic wallowing; this place is all about moonlight and champagne and…well, you know. Children aren't allowed—but given that the resort sits on a cliff 1,000 feet above the sea, that's probably a good thing. The same local artisans who supplied Anse Chastanet seem to have been responsible for the madras linens and clay floor tiles, though this decor is a bit fancier, with its stone walls and polished, mosquito-netted, tropical-green heartwood beds and armoires. There's a big communal infinity pool, and though there's no beach, a free shuttle goes to Anse Chastanet beach as well as Soufrière town. Everyone calls the restaurant, Dasheene, the island's best.
