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 do - go there!
To go there is quite a trip, we've came from California and flew in over Atlanta. At arrival we've been greeted by one of their drivers who took us over the entire island until we finally arrived there.
The East Winds Inn has 3 types of rooms, we chose the Deluxe Garden Cottages and think we made the best choice. The cheaper cottages are standing a bit closer to each other and don't have the bigger patios and outdoor shower (though they are still wonderful!) Another alternative is an ocean view room thats located in a bigger building at the beach which is more a hotel room than a cottage.
The EWI offers exceptional culinary all-inclusive. The All Inclusive here makes other AI hotels look ridiculous as you get spoiled by the best, most fresh and creative composed culinary experience you can image. Breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner - we basically scheduled our day around these daily highlights.
I personally loved the evenings. They start with a glass of champagne or our favorite Rum Punch at the open bar. On some nights they even had a cocktail party with live music. You then go to the open restaurant, sitting close to the ocean and enjoying an every-day fantastic 5 course menu with corresponding wines. On every second day they also have a live musician or band playing for you. if you want to get a feeling how good the dinners are just think about this very special place you only go for very special occasions, that usually costs you a fortune but its worth it - its like that EVERY night at the East Winds Inn!
Our highlight was the weekly Lobster Barbecue - incredible.
Besides food and drinks we also loved taking the hotel owned catamaran out for a sail.
We've celebrated our wedding there and I can't thank Glenda and the entire team enough for making this day so special and relaxed for us. They've decorated the spot we've chose at the beach, brought some music and organized everything for us. We even got a wedding cake and they recommended a wonderful photographer who captured this day in all its beauty.
I can't wait to get back there, its a truly wonderful place!

“This was by far the most beautiful and special place I've been for a long time” – thank you for this wonderful way to start such a positive and thorough review of your romantic stay at East Winds Inn. It is obvious you appreciated the quiet sophistication and elegance of the resort – in your vernacular – “all about relaxation, fantastic drinks and food, unpretentious luxury and around people that cherish it the way you do” - with a further encouragement to go there, is more than we could ask for.
Thank you for all the positive comments about the culinary experiences enjoyed each and every day, reinforcing our belief that fine cuisine should form a major part of any Caribbean holiday. Your notes about the musicians and entertainment, relaxing in the lounge, sailing in the hobbie cat, dining to the sounds of the Caribbean Sea – all are very representative of the experiences East Winds is noted for. And the fact you had your wedding there with the excellent planning by Glenda and the committed staff to ensure you had the most memorable day gives you reason to be so enthusiastic – just like we are we about your review.
As you state “I can’t wait to get back there, it’s a truly wonderful place!” We can’t wait either – it would be lovely to have you back. Thank you for your gracious support of East Winds Inn.
