East Winds

Official Rating

'Intimate All-Inclusive Boutique Hotel'

East Winds is a true 'Caribbean Resort', secluded and romantically set amongst 12 acres of lush tropical gardens, on the golden beachfront of one of the best and most sheltered bays of St. Lucia, yet located just five miles from the lively capital, Castries.  It is a hotel for all seasons - for winter breaks, honeymooners all year round and a family resort during the summer months. The all-inclusive is low key, very private and relaxed and healthy options are on offer for each meal along with complimentary yoga, Pilates, a fitness track/outdoor gym and a Spa Pavillion here you can choose from a variety of pampering treatments. A four-course gourmet menu is served 6 nights a week along with quality wines. Children aged 8 and over are welcome.

In Our Opinion

'East Winds is one of the oldest and most established resorts in St. Lucia, but the owners have upped the old-time glamour stakes at the refurbished hotel with the addition of a new Steinway Grand Piano - the only one to be found on the island'

Flamboyant Room
With cuisine of the highest standard by French and local chefs in what is probably the most modern kitchen on the island; a member of the Chaine des Rotisseurs and winner of several regional culinary competitions guests will be treated to a delicious range of Caribbean and international dishes accompanied by a choice of hand selected wines.
Private Dining
For an intimate dining experience guests may choose to dine in Palm Beach Gazebos surrounded by tropical plant life. As with the restaurant, the freshest of ingredients are used with vegetables from selected local farms, herbs from the in-house garden and fish brought by fishermen direct from the sea.
