We have just arrived back in the UK from our fourth visit to East Winds in the last sixteen months. And to get back yesterday from 30+degrees C to -5 degrees C at Gatwick and scraping frost off the car was, to say the least, something of a shock to the system! This is probably going to be the shortest...

We had never been to St Lucia before or been on an all inclusive but the experience was superb from start to finish. The rooms are wonderful and the staff do not stop smiling or being helpful. You can tell that this is a very well managed hotel. Not only is the food excellent but the opportunities to try out...

East Winds Inn is simply a lovely place in every aspect: beautiful, understated décor, lovely beach and pool, amazing gardens, seriously outstanding food and wine, tasteful entertainment, and flawless friendly service. The ambience is both top notch and unpretentious, elegant and comfortable. I only wish we had stayed much longer!

Decided to go here for some sun before Christmas having never been to St Lucia before. We weren't disappointed- this boutique hotel is set in acres of lovely gardens and all the accommodation is in cottages throughout the gardens so lots of privacy and comfortable beds with stocked minibar. Private beach and nice pool but the best part was the...

My family and I went to East Winds for my sisters wedding. We were there for ten days. From day one the service was impeccable. All the staff were incredible friendly; nothing was too much. My partner is a strict vegetarian with other dietary requirements. On the first evening, the head chef came out to discuss his needs for the...

If you are after a resort with lots to do, with people bothering you to "get involved", and wild parties at night, then this is perhaps not the place for you. However....... If you are after relaxation, quality food/drink, beautiful surroundings, lovely rooms and staff that cannot do enough for you, then look no further, East Winds has all of...

My wife and I had a wonderful stay at The Eastwinds Inn. We have stayed twice at another resort but this is relaxation, tranquillity and an amazing place.

By no means a record but we have just returned from our sixth visit to this intimate and friendly boutique hotel. We gave it a miss last year simply to explore another similar hotel in Grenada but this year decided to return, and how pleased we were with our decision. There have been quite a few improvements to the decor...

This was my 11th trip to St. Lucia and East Winds truly is a hidden gem. I'm shamefaced to admit but I hadn't heard of it before this trip! I can't even believe it. We stayed for three nights and it was one of the most relaxing places we've been on the whole island. The rooms are actually cottages, so...

We were a little apprehensive about what we might find, following the change in management since our last visit. We needn't have worried as the new management team, led by Judith Milne, are keen to ensure they are meeting the needs of guests. They are in the process of sympathetically refurbishing, where necessary, whilst asking guests for their thoughts and...
