We've been at the East Winds Inn for our honeymoon and wedding renewal in 2011. This was by far the most beautiful and special place I've been for a long time. If you're looking for a place where your entire day is all about relaxation, fantastic drinks and food, unpretentious luxury and around people that cherish it the way you...

My wife and I have just returned from a week's stay at the East Winds Inn, and can wholeheartedly endorse the very positive comments detailed in the most recent posts.

We arrived at East Winds Inn on Christmas Day in the evening & we stayed 10 blissful nights there, departing January 4th . We had been evacuated from another Island because of a sudden fire & were quite literally almost “refugees.” Gareth the GM saved our Christmas & we were most fortunate to find “room at the Inn”.

EXQUISITE REVIEW MOST GREATLY APPRECIATED What a heart wrenching story – to learn of the disappointment that the original hotel you chose for your Christmas and New Year celebration was destroyed by fire – only to be replaced by a holiday at a “near impossible” to replicate boutique resort known as East Winds Inn. Interestingly, this is not the first...

My wife and I had read the reviews and had high expectations which were met. However the hotel is in a niche market and some may prefer a more glitzy and in your face place to stay especially if you want to wear your bling. Nevertheless the Inn exudes quality and sophistication. We booked directly with Gareth, the manager, by...

East Winds is a definite for your list. Gareth and his staff are the most welcoming and friendly people you could meet. The rooms, location and cuisine were top notch. Lots of activities. I understand that the property may be expanded slightly which would allow the resort to have a trail all the way around for joggers/ walking. Nikita the...

We recently stayed seven days in East Winds Inn, St Lucia. This was our fourth time and it didn't disappoint us although we arrived with high expectations. The accommodation is excellent.

The Caribbean is good news in most areas, but the easy-going friendliness of most St Lucians is second to none, and the staff of EWI exceed even that! From reception to the dining room, and from gardeners to porters they are unfailingly cheerful, courteous and efficient which gives the impression they would do anything for you. We were very pleased...
