This luxury Caribbean resort is all about simplicity and offers a very exclusive experience for those who value traditional St Lucian hospitality. The resort has direct beach access to one of the most pristine bays in St Lucia, Labrelotte Bay, which is teeming with colourful underwater sea-life. While on land birdwatchers can retreat to their tropical gardens (meticulously landscaped by Christine Lovell) where head gardener, Sylvanus, will take you on a personal guided tour. The resort features a free-form pool, with a swim-up bar, an elegant open-air restaurant and bar and a small boutique onsite. The resort’s expert chefs have an enviable reputation as being some of the best on the island. Fresh, local products are primarily used in the kitchen and a daily changing table d'hote style menu is served every evening with fillet steaks and lobster at no extra cost.
East Winds consists of 30 guestrooms located in thirteen single-storey duplex cottages plus three ocean-view rooms and a suite. The Ocean Front Rooms are right next to the beach, situated in what was once a private residence belonging to the Horlicks Beverage family. The Deluxe Cottages are located in the stunning tropical gardens and offer a spacious and private covered terrace. The Superior Cottages are designed as African rondavels with thatched roofs and are located close to the swimming pool, beach, restaurant, and bars. All guestrooms and suites come with in-room mini-fridges, coffee makers, a safe, free Internet and offer views of the ocean from private terraces and balconies.
Children from 8-15 years of age are welcome all year round at East Winds. The resort does not have a Kids Club and has purposely kept the children’s activities low-key and natural (you’ll find no Playstations here). So while there aren’t the extensive facilities for children that other more family-orientated resorts might offer there is plenty of fun to be had kayaking, paddle-boarding, snorkelling and sailing…or simply splashing around in the pool and sea.
