    Beautiful view of the Petit Piton in St. Lucia from Ladera Resort #stlucia #caribbean

    LADERA St. Lucia, St. Lucia Our readers say: Anticipate “the experience of a lifetime” at this ecolodge built with Caribbean timber, local stone, and terra-cotta tiles on the site of a former cocoa plantation. It’s in “a calm, beautiful, very floral setting” on a forested ridge overlooking the Pitons and the sea. Rustic suites have private plunge pools and are minus the fourth wall, allowing unobstructed views. Indulge in a hot volcanic stone massage at Ti Kai Posé Spa or take a dip in its mineral pools. “We loved, loved, loved the St. Lucian dishes” of local pork and shrimp at Dasheene, served in an open-air dining room overlooking the Caribbean. “What a lovely, restful resort.” From 17 Hotel Terraces with Unbelievable Views : Daily Traveler : Condé Nast Traveler

Week 9: Travel. Also on my list, St. Lucia. This was one of the places we considered for a honey moon spot. It's still in consideration because of the beauty and atmosphere of this place. Anything exotic is on my top 10!

Jade Mountain Resort, St. Lucia

I don't care for the specific plantings or the marble-like tiles, but I like the balance: lots of stone interrupted by spot plantings.

St Lucia, Caribbean. 'Who says the Caribbean is all about lying on the beach? If that’s all you do in St Lucia you’re missing out. This isn’t some glammed-up, theme-park holiday spot – St Lucia has a pulse. Your senses are bombarded with the sights, smells and sounds of an island that’s truly alive.' www.lonelyplanet....
