We came to East Winds for our honeymoon 16 years ago. Since then we've been to every continent and many countries and travelled around the world twice. We've stayed in 7 star hotels (and some hovels) and eaten in top restauranrts (and some slums). We don't impose any rules upon ourselves but somehow we said we would never go back...

You know you are going to have a very special holiday when you receive a warm welcome at reception and a cold glass of champagne. The rooms are not huge but beautifully appointed. Food excellent.

This was our first time to St Lucia and East Winds. We have previously stayed in Barbados at Mango Bay and Tamarind Cove.

Eastwinds Inn is an amazing place. The cottages, set in beautiful botanical gardens, are well appointed and kept clean and tidy by the housekeeping staff.
