When you think of a perfect vacation, a dream come true, heaven on earth, write it down on a piece of paper and put it in a bottle and toss it in to the ocean. This is where it will float to. We left the states for St. Lucia on July 5th never having been to this part of the Caribbean, but anxious to get away from all the stress and just relax. When we arrived Rochelle offered Rum Punch to start off the vacation. Relaxation was a sip away. As she toured the grounds with us we become more and more excited at our choice. Our luggage was placed in our rooms while we chatted and discovered all the lush gardens, beautifully landscaped pool with swim up bar, additional bars, sitting areas and their restaurant with a view of their sparkling beach and endless water so blue you would swear they colored it. The sunsets in the evening only Monet could paint. Water sport equipment was available to us and included in the inclusive package. Our room was incredible! Our deluxe cabin greeted us with a front porch facing gorgeous foliage, a comfortable table and chairs, refrigerator stocked with drinks and coffee and tea for our pleasure. The bedroom was spacious and elegant. The bathroom shower was sunken with screens for a outdoor shower feel with indoor privacy. And to tickle your taste buds, a fresh fruit basket filled with local fruits upon your arrival. We were thrilled! Tea time was at 4pm each day by the pool. What a treat. As for the meals, lets just say expect to go on a diet when you get home and don't worry about it because it will be sooooo worth it. Breakfast was filled with tropical fruits, flaky croissants and lots of custom made to your liking egg dishes, pancakes, potatoes, bacon, sausage and yes even pork and beans. Lunch gave you choices of several salads, grilled and prepared hot dishes as well as assorted fruits, meats and cheeses. Dinner was a masterpiece! Four courses with 3 selections each of delicious appetizers, soup, salad or pasta, main coarse and desserts. Each prepared by a master chef and paired with wonderful wines selected to compliment their menu. A surprise, especially prepared taste arrived before each meal. It was truly superb! Last but certainly not least was the staff. They were all truly first class. They will remember your name, your favorite drinks, where you sit, and if you have food allergies they will customize your food to meet your needs. You can even special order your menu. Our last day felt like we were leaving our close friends behind, sad, but anxious to return. East Winds is not a party location, so if you are looking for a high energy vacation look somewhere else. East Winds Inn is a place of relaxation, memorable sunsets and Island charm. Even Chantal was no match for East Winds Inn.

PERFECT VACATION REVIEW GREATLY APPRECIATED

When you think of a perfect review, one that covers every detail and recognizes every nuance of a place, don’t bother trying to write it out – just read this post. Thank you for sharing all your enthusiastic discoveries and experiences while staying at East Winds Inn. They are so real and genuine – from the heart – which makes them extra special. “Sunsets in the evening that only Monet could paint” – how original and moving that is, yet so true. Dinner was a masterpiece, ocean water so blue you would swear they coloured it, truly first class staff who will remember your name, favourite drinks, and even where you sit – let alone your food preferences. All of these observations are so gratifying to read about.

Despite feeling so sad when you left, you also indicated your anxiousness to return. That is the most that we could ask for, as you are clearly a new member of the East Winds family of guests. And that family continues to expand on a regular basis, as new guests become repeat guests for all the reasons you have so wonderfully set out. So please do come back soon to the “place of relaxation, memorable sunsets and Island charm” – we will be waiting for you with the widest of St. Lucian smiles. Just don't tell Chantal where you are going.

Best regards,

George J. Reti,
President

We visited East Winds back in April as a respite to the never ending English winter - and we found the perfect antidote! If you are after a quiet relaxing holiday, with great food and wine, super friendly staff, in a gorgeous location, then East Winds is for you. This is not a place if you want to party, or if you need/ want to be entertained. However if you are happy with: reading/ relaxing on a golden beach; swimming in a crystal clear ocean (with fabulous snorkelling right on your doorstep), staying in simple but elegant, spacious and clean accommodation; chatting with friendly intelligent staff; eating / drinking in a lovely open air restaurant / bar with piano or some other music accompaniment; and generally letting the rest of the world get on without you - then this is definitely the place for you. ( probably worth mentioning we are in our late 30s).

East Winds Review

This was our 4th stay at East Winds. It had been good before but, this time, was absolutely fabulous. What makes this resort so special is the superb management by Gareth Leach and the incredibly well- trained and amazing staff. Nothing is too much trouble for them. It would be a "Mission Impossible" for me to lick out any one member this time. they are all stars. Their personalities blend to make the perfect blend of unobtrusive service combined with a genuine friendliness and warmth that makes this resort "sing"!

I really enjoyed getting up early and swimming in the sea before St Lucia wakes up. The tranquility at 6am is something unique and magical. The birds at the resort are amazingly bold and a joy to watch., our hut 14 was great and the extra fan helpfully provided helped to circulate the air providing a cooling breeze across the bed.

The only criticism I did have was cigarette smoke coming from the adjacent hut patio. The couple were very nice and I suppose this was the only area they had to do this but it spoilt sitting out in the evening on kur own patio for me.

The food came in for some criticism from some of the repeat guests but personally I thought that Tomaslav and his team were innovative and creative. I really looked forward to the four course menu each night. Sometimes I would have an extra starter rather than a main course and the restaurant duly obliged. Both my husband and I are very fussy when it comes to fish. He likes it practically flapping and I like it on the rare side. Previously it has been overcooked. Not this time. The kitchen was spot on each time. Very impressive. I miss the breakfast galettes though.

One night there was a big thunderstorm and the guest pianist failed to show. My husband, also a pianist, has special permission to play the beautiful Steinway Grande and often did so after dinner. He had and a wonderful time playing two sets during a thunderstorm. Definitely a dream fulfilled for him.

As for me? This time EW and St Lucia really got to me. I really did not want to leave as I was so relaxed. We are definitely going back for a fifth visit in one of the most unspoilt, laid back quality places I know...I can't wait!

THANKS FOR THE MAGICAL REVIEW

What an opening line about your fourth stay at East Winds Inn – “it was good before, but this time it was absolutely fabulous”. Thank you for being so forthright and positive – especially in light of the fact that you are probably one of the best authorities on St. Lucia on this board, as a Top Contributor with 84 reviews including 42 hotel reviews covering 44 cities. You are clearly an experienced and discriminating traveler, who knows what to expect in a locational context. We are so pleased that you have cited the exceptional staff and our General manager of over 21 years at East Winds Inn, Gareth Leach, who really makes this resort "sing".

We are pleased that you found the cuisine even improved from your previous visits, and we are now offering fresh sushi as you no doubt discovered. Chef Tomislav and his Sous Chef George are both masters at what they do – simply check out the cooking videos on our website to see what our guests can anticipate. George was trained under one of the great sushi masters in the world, and with the benefit of fresh fish delivered right to the East Winds beach daily, the results are spectacular.

As always, the Steinway wormed its way into your heart, along with many of the other guests. There is simply nothing better than being serenaded to wonderful piano music and the sounds of the surf as you experience the many delicacies served in the seaside dining room.

It seems that St. Lucia really did its magic on you this time around, as it does to so many. We are pleased that you will be back for a fifth visit to “one of the most unspoilt, laid back quality places I know..” and like you, we can’t wait either. Thank you for your ongoing support and kindness expressed in your remarks – I know they are genuine.

Warm regards,

We have recently returned from two lovely weeks at East Winds. On our arrival we were greeted by Gareth and Michelle, who offered cold flannels, and welcome drinks in that order.Our luggage was whisked away, and we were taken to our lovely beach front room. The grounds are great, and very well maintained, there was always someone working there.The swimming pool with its help yourself cocktail bar,was a nice change from the beach every now and again,but I must admit we both preferred jumping into the warm and calm sea. The food was first class. At other resorts we have been to, the bbq fare was all cooked already and usually going cold. At East Winds it was all cooked to order while you waited.The 5 course evening meals,starting with a tiny amuse bouche, and finishing with delicious desserts were amazing, and there was always a varied choice to suit everyones taste. The staff were fantastic, to name just a few, Titus, Simeon,Hannah, Miriam, and lovely Karen, who when finding out that my husband couldn't find a St Lucia polo shirt in Rodney Bay, offered to take him into Castries the next day to get one from the market.Talking about special service, Gareth arranged for a Sunday paper to be brought over by one of the expected guests. Its the small touches like these, that you tend to remember.Another thing that we have to thank Michelle for. The second week we were there, the unit beside us was vacant, it was bigger than ours, but we just assumed it was similar and asked if we could transfer over. It turned out to be the mini suite(which we actually thought was on the other end of the row) and Michelle said no problem, you can have a free upgrade. That made our holiday. Now one small gripe! The balcony roofs of the beach front properties have slats that the rain just poured through. The towels, and in the mini suite the chair furniture, got soaking wet every time we had a shower of rain. I heard that there were going to be some renovations, so please Gareth fix this problem.

Room Tip: The beach front room and the deluxe rooms are both the same price. The deluxe are slightly bigger,wi...

A PIECE OF PARADISE – THANK YOU FOR SAYING SO

Your excellent review of the recent two week stay you experienced at East Winds Inn is greatly appreciated. It is impressive that you had so many positive things to say as a Senior Contributor to this website, with 19 hotel reviews covering 17 cities. Everything from your welcomed arrival to the “amazing” cuisine and the “fantastic” staff seemed to meet your expectations. Thanks for mentioning so many staff by name - Titus, Simeon, Hannah, Miriam, and Karen are just some of the 84 staff at the resort who made your stay so memorable. As you discovered, we do believe in personalized service.

We are planning to make some cosmetic and functional changes to the roofline of the oceanview rooms this fall, which will hopefully solve the problem of wet decks and deck furniture during rainy periods. We would encourage you to return and check it out for yourself – we think you will be pleased with the result.

Thank you for such an enthusiastic and positive posting – we greatly appreciate your support of the “Small Resort with a Big Heart” – East Winds Inn. Hoping to see you again soon.

Best regards,

George J. Reti,

the setting of east winds is beautiful the beach and our room on the beach were lovely. We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and had a lovely meal set up in beach gazebo with wine etc. So most of what other reviewers have said is true.

However a few negatives - the al a carte dinner menu was very nice but on 3 occasions it wasnt brilliant. ie chewy chicken which we could not eat and left in full - but were not asked by waiter what the problem was - if they had asked I would have told them. Also the cold asparagus soup was awful, again left in full but not asked as to why - felt quite disappointed this night. Lunch buffet is not 4 star salad comprises of a big bowl of tomatoes lettuce and something else with a waitress putting clingfilm back over bowl when you have your serving. Also a choice of say pork chop chicken leg and gammon for lunch not a lot of choice Im afraid. One night I didnt like anything on menu so told the waitress she did arrange for steak which I thought was brilliant service but when I asked again another night the restaurant manager came over and asked me to look at menu earlier in day and let them know if I didnt like anything so it would give them time to defrost something else. I felt quite put out by this.

Suggestions - lots of staff at this hotel only half full whilst we were there - why not put one of the staff on the pool bar and serve the guests cocktails drinks etc whilst around the pool. We didnt really want to get our own I do that at home everyday. Why not get a waiter on beach to serve drinks to guests - would be a nice touch. Also bathroom in room 27 was very dingy (as said in a previous review) more 3 star.

Also when guests put on anything less than a 5 star review for the manager to take on suggestions and not try and retaliate with an essay on why they are wrong - after all thats what this site is all about - and why it has taken me a month to post this review as I didnt want the manager to belittle me. Reviews need to be posted whether good or bad to give a fair opinion to trip advisor readers. Spent second week at the body holiday which is truly 5 star and in my opinion east winds could be too with just a few additions. Also fitness trail (as someone already said) is not something different we never saw anyone use it at all and just one person doing yoga one day. I would recommend to older people maybe retired who like a really quiet place and not bothered about the little finer touches.

Room Tip: ocean view rooms on beach lovely view but shower room needs renovating

THANKS FOR THE POSITIVE REVIEW AND BEING HONEST

We greatly appreciate the review you have posted on East Winds Inn, and particularly the fact it is honest – as all our reviews are just that. Any hotel which is foolish enough to encourage anything but truthful reviews is walking a very thin line, as the guest expectations associated with high quality reviews are extremely stringent, and if expectations are not met, the results can be devastating. You are correct in suggesting that this is the purpose of this website, and we value honest feedback in order that we can make whatever changes are necessary to ensure we are doing the best that we can. After all, how else would we know what our guests are truly experiencing, and more importantly, what they would like to experience? It is only when we know that comments made are not truthful, or are completely unreasonable, do we take on a protective posture in our responses.

You have made a number of very positive and helpful remarks in your posting, ranging from confirming that the setting of East Winds is beautiful, and the beach and your room were lovely, to suggesting that we might provide bartender service at the swim-up bar or have a beach boy taking drink orders. Interestingly, we have tried both in past years, and while some guests did like these services, others found them somewhat imposing on their quiet time when they were just trying to relax. We have also opened the Piton Bar right on the beach in past quieter times, with good success and guest appreciation. The use of clingfilm over the various salads ensures their freshness as well as unwanted visitations by birds and insects – which are prevalent in the tropics, especially in an open air restaurant. We are pleased to know that you were provided the option of special meals in the event the daily offerings were not up to your standards. As you discovered, all you need to do is communicate your desires, and they will be looked after – just as you were on your 25th anniversary dinner right on the beach.

We will introduce some of your suggestions to our management team, and hopefully, on your next visit, you will see that we do listen to our customers. It is because of this attitude, that we have constantly received major awards for the past six years on this website. Thank you for taking the time to write a fair and honest review of your experiences at East Winds Inn and helping to make a difference.

Best regards,

George J. Reti,

When researching east winds for last year's trip i thought surely nowhere can live up to so many great reviews. My fears were misplaced - it did then and it has done again. This truly is a gem of a place. Don't be put off by the term "all inclusive" either - as i think the manager said somewhere, think of it as bed and breakfast with lunch, evening meal and drinks thrown in. The 12 acres of tropical gardens form an fantastic backdrop for the rooms and restaurant and bars. All are maintained to the highest quality. The location and beach are both exquisite, however it is the staff that make the place what it is - and what i am sure it will continue to be. It really is like one big family - and for the length of your stay - you become a part of this extended family. The ages of the guests varied hugely - but everyone we met seemed to have found the place enchanting. For some the process may take a few days - but eventually the happy east winds vibe seems to be imparted to everyone by some form of holiday osmosis. (It really isn't just the rum punch.)
If anything i felt the food was even better this year than last. Breakfast and lunch are buffet style - with eggs cooked to order in the morning and a BBQ on alternate days for lunch. The range of salads and local cuisine are always fantastic. The evening meal is a 4 course affair - with a choice of fish, meat or veggie for everything bar desert. The quality is fine dining and the service immaculate.
St Lucia is a beautiful island - and there is much to explore - but equally you never have to leave east winds - your choice. The water sports are great - we sailed in the hobie cats everyday - and snorkelled in the sea. The water sports guys will teach you to sail or take you out with them at the helm - again your choice.
The rooms are well appointed - fastidiously clean and the beds big and very comfortable. The bamboo lounge is a treat at anytime of the day - but its open sides and dark wooden bar really come to their own after the evening meal, with a night cap or two.
If you want to relax - are willing to relax and are in need of a holiday - east winds will do the rest. If you are expecting las vegas in the caribbean - with noisy glitz and bling and virtual reality - and a turn down service and no requirement ever to leave your air conditioned bubble - then this isn't the place you're looking for. For everyone else - you may just have found paradise.

Room Tip: we had deluxe rooms 22 and 23 - which were great - i didn't see inside the superior rooms - but...

A SECOND EXCELLENT REVIEW – THANK YOU!

As a Top Contributor on this website, with 50 reviews of which 27 cover hotels, confirming that East Winds “is a gem of a place”, has special meaning. Receiving accolades from experienced travelers is always rewarding, and we thank you very much for taking the time to once again reaffirm your positive feelings about East Winds Inn. The detailed descriptions in your review, punctuated with such well selected superlatives, are most insightful and appreciated – particularly where you sum up the cuisine offerings, suggesting "the quality is fine dining and the service is immaculate." After all, having stayed at over 25 hotels and completing reviews in 25 different cities, it is a fair assessment that you know what you are speaking about.

We are happy you have discovered the intimacies of the Bamboo Lounge, for that is what initially brought us to East Winds as well. Of course, there have been many improvements over the years, but even some of our repeat guests of over 25 times can hardly tell the difference, as it is the atmosphere they are after, not bricks and mortar. The emphasis placed on relaxation is well expressed in your posting, that is what we continually wish to be noted for.

Hopefully, you will return again soon, and join the many throngs of repeat visitors who have finally discovered their own little piece of paradise. We thank you for your enthusiastic and continued support.

Best regards,

Just returned from St. Lucia after 2 weeks relaxation in EWI. We have stayed in resorts before where 'Trip Advisors' would lash out 5 stars on the resorts, but our own experiences couldn't match such enthusiasm - something was missing ( eg Galley Bay - Antigua). My wife and I were afraid that this might be the case with EWI, but NO. This is a genuine 5 Star experience (not 5 star hotel it has to be said, but that's irrelevant).
Things to do range from Yoga, table tennis, running track at the top of the resort, watersports such as Hobbie cats, canoes, snorkeling (all free), small very clean swimming pool (cleaned every day)with serve yourself swim up bar.

The chalet layout lends itself to the tranquility of the resort (we stayed in No. 12 2 minutes walk to beach / swimming pool) - semi detached with own verandah, fridge outside the room, very clean and tidy room, large comfortable King size bed, large flat screen tv and DVD player (dvds from reception) , more than enough storage space for clothes. The bathroom has a large stand-in shower area with window screens open to the outside- privacy still very good though., twin sinks and all the soap/ shower gel etc you need, powerful hairdrier that can be used in the bedroom. One downside to no.12 was being woken up by mangoes falling off the nearby tree onto the roof - the first time is the worse!!)

The restaurant is located on the beach accessed via the 2 bars. Breakfast (cereals, fresh fruit, breads, toast, cooked food, fruit juices, teas, coffees), Lunches (buffet food, every other day bar-b-que with choice of fish, meats, kebabs or all three) and evening dinner generally 5 course a-la-carte with many choices. Friday night bar-b-que should not be missed. The food isn't totally outstanding, but is very,very good and is well covered from birds/flys. Other resorts let themselves down here. Afternoon tea served at the pool. The drinks in the bars are mostly premium brands.

Plenty of sunbeds either on the beach or at the pool (our choice was the pool) - no need to put towel out to snatch the location (during our stay, one woman from Scotland religiously did this everday ! - NO NEED!!)

Most of the clientele are/were UK with occasional US/Canadians thrown in. A few were returning again, some again and again.

The staff are generally long term employees, and are very experienced. Miriam, Harry, Wendel, Titus, Elie etc mix well with the guests.

One down side while we were there - mossies !! - The weather varied from very hot/ clear days to very wet/cloudy days, and this would bring about the guests generally discussing each and very new bite(s). Every week the resort would 'fog' the area and each room has a large can of spray to use in the room when leaving for dinner.

Finally, there's Gareth the manager. Never been to a resort before where the manager would be as high profile as Gareth (it was as if he was a guest we saw him so much). He would mingle with the guests and converse easily, his general knowledge would put him onto the final of MasterMind.

We've been to Nisbet Plantation in Nevis, and is very similar to EWI. We have always said we would return to there, but now we would also return to EWI, may be not next year but soon, very soon.

Thanks East Winds, thank you.

A TRULY WORTH READING REVIEW – THANK YOU

This is a very meaningful review, authored by a Senior Contributor to this board, with 25 hotel reviews in 24 different cities around the world. These types of experienced travelers know what to look for, and are not afraid to speak their minds. So in the case of East Winds Inn, the words have been spoken – this little gem is “Truly Worth 5 Stars in Trip Advisor”. What more could we ask for than that? Even more interesting is the early comment where it is stated that the author had stayed in other five star rated facilities, but for some reason, something was missing. With this trepidation, they entered the confines of East Winds Inn – and as they emphatically stated - “NO – this is a five star experience”.

The review then goes on to cite all of the many reasons that these guests were so satisfied, to the point where they are seriously considering alternating their time with their old favourite haunt in Nevis – which we view as worthy competition. Many staff members are singled out, including Miriam, Harry, Wendel, Titus and Elie. And there are 79 others who have remained unnamed, but no less contributed to the memorable experience of these guests. As for the mosquitos, welcome to the tropics. They are sometimes worse than others, and we do our best to keep the numbers down as you point out. It’s a good thing we have some 35 different species of birds on the property to help keep their numbers in check naturally.

Thanks also for mentioning Gareth Leach, our GM with over 21 years under his belt at East Winds in this capacity. His omnipresent presence clearly made an impression on you, and yes, you are correct, he could easily be a finalist in MasterMind. But don’t tell him that, for fear he might choose a new career in television game shows, giving Sean Connery a run for his money. Gareth has a fetish for old westerns as well, but you’ll have to wait until your next visit to ask him about that – very soon we hope. I guarantee his knowledge of this subject matter will not disappoint you either.

Best regards,

George J. Reti,
