Let the East Winds Blow
Situated on 12 acres of tropical garden by the sea, East Winds is perhaps the best kept secret in Saint Lucia
Offering a genuine slice of Caribbean luxury, East Winds is a breath taking tropical garden resort by the sea, set on a sandy, secluded storybook beach.
This magnificent Caribbean hideaway features 30 cottage style suites and an Ocean front beach house, tucked away amongst a cornucopia of vibrant plants, lush trees, and a kaleidoscope of colourful bird life native to Saint Lucia
What sets East Winds apart is personalised care offered, the truly all-inclusive service and the opportunity to experience exclusive adventures
Each of the cottage-style rooms are conveniently positioned amongst the gardens, so that guests can fully immerse themselves in the nature that surrounds them.
Always a favourite of ours since we first visited in 1993 we returned recently and find the resort has grown from strength to strength seemingly unchanged yet remaining perfectly in tune with the 2020’s
East Winds beach is set in a natural, private bay, unmanicured but beautifully maintained.
The sea is warm all year round and the natural setting allows guests to feel that they have a private beach all their own.
With beach gazebos offering shade through the hottest part of the day, comfortable sunbeds and a beach drinks service, there is no need to move away from your book, exploring the coral reefs or learning a new water sports skill.
At the end of a perfect day, stay where you are to watch the sunset with cocktail in hand and allow your mind to drift as you benefit from the restorative sounds of the sea.
The pool at East Winds is close to the beach, restaurant and bars and surrounded by a stunning tropical garden.
Renovated in September 2017 the pool is the perfect spot to relax, swim, watch hummingbirds go about their busy business and socialise with friends while making the most of the self-service swim up bar.
The pool remains at a very comfortable 28˚C all year round, with gentle steps into the pool and comfortable stools to sit and have a drink without ever leaving the water.
And if you prefer to be served rather than help yourself, a drinks service goes on throughout the day to make sure you have everything you need.
The Philosophy behind the East Winds Garden Spa is to stay at one with nature. In our beautiful and ancient tropical garden, we grow many medicinal plants and herbs.
At East Winds, they clearly care about the environment and avoid using any harsh chemicals on your skin, preferring instead to focus on natural organic treatments using ingredients from the environment around us to relax, rejuvenate and energise you. Both inside, and out.
If ever there was a reason to return year after year it is the team at East Winds. They are the heart and soul of this Caribbean home.
Gaining endless accolades and compliments from guests the team truly make the East Winds magic happen.
Many of the team have worked at the hotel for 15 years plus and regard it as their second home with colleagues and guests as a second family.
Service is friendly and discreet, casual yet efficient, warm and respectful.
Every guest is treated to the warm welcome that St Lucia is known for and you can’t help but get to know the team during your stay as they make sure you have everything you could possibly need.
