What can one say new about perfection? We arrived at East Winds on Valentines day, my wife was presented with a red rose and we were treated like royalty. The luxurious guest cabins/cottages are dotted amongst beautiful landscaped grounds set on a beautiful bay. We felt private and totally relaxed in such secluded surroundings. The head gardener and his team... More

My partner and I spent two glorious weeks at East Winds in January this year and wondered if all the hype in the reviews would match up to reality. We needn't have worried. Everything was as promised and as soon as we arrived we quickly became aware that we were somewhere special. The staff were exceptional in that nothing was... More

Just returned from our third trip to East Winds - which makes us almost newcomers there - we met people on their 16th visit and others on their 12th! It is so easy to see why people keep returning here, it is really everything you want for a totally relaxing break. We went with good intentions of 'escaping' and doing... More

We were recommended to stay at East Winds by Tropic Breeze who have also made good choices for us, and this time was no exception. The many excellent reviews, the recent awards - obviously so well merited even among strong opposition - and the whole experience was wonderful. The staff need a special mention, as others have done too, because... More

Having had a very sad 2013, we gave ourselves a chance to 'refresh' for 2014. East Winds was a superb choice - absolutely gorgeous, everything we needed. The staff were all brilliant, would like to give special thanks to the boatman (twin of the sea!) who took us out in the Hobby Cat, it was great!!!! The food was excellent... More

Our return visit to East Winds Inn did not disappoint and it would be easy to echo the sentiments of so many reviewers. It is certainly a gem of a hotel with great staff who cannot do enough for our relaxation and enjoyment. To be able to fetch a drink, go for a sail, saunter into lunch, linger in the... More

Dear Gareth, ALL the staff at East Winds.....and Thomas, the cat! I am sure I now find myself in the same predicament as my fellow Tripadvisor reviewers when it comes to East Winds Inn. What on earth can I say that is original? I will try my best. People go on holiday for all sorts of reasons. This time last... More

Having never been to St Lucia before I looked at Tripadvisor before booking and was impressed by the reviews for the East Winds so we booked there. I can safely say that the reviews fully justify this hotel. The accommodation, food and staff were all excellent and we really enjoyed our stay so much so that we never left the... More

We were in need of a new hotel to experience in the north of the island, having stayed at several of the popular and larger resorts over the years. We happen-chanced upon East Winds during a Tripadvisor search and our curiosities were peaked by finding this little hotel we had not heard about in mainstream advertising being number 1 of... More

I appreciate this is a little belated but having just signed up for Trip Advisor, I thought I owed East Winds Inn a review! I'm 16 and have previously visited Barbados twice, where I stayed both times in a much busier hotel. Given this, my parents were unsure if I'd find a way to occupy myself in a smaller, more... More

BEST REVIEW – THANK YOU I must admit after reading your wonderful review of East Winds Inn, the portion that really grabbed my attention was your age – a generous 16 years of experienced travel which allowed you to enjoy even the most subtle aspects of the resort.
