East Winds says

Step in to the romance of East Winds, a breathtaking tropical garden paradise set on a secluded sandy beach.

  • luxury all-inclusive
  • intimate atmosphere
  • superb cuisine

Our Caribbean hideaway is St Lucia’s original boutique resort, featuring just 30 cottage-style suites and an oceanfront beach suite – all tucked away amongst lush plants, trees, and a kaleidoscope of colourful bird life.

The intimacy of East Winds is matched by the warmth of our hospitality with personalised service from our dedicated staff, superb cuisine and the chance to enjoy all manner of non-motorised water sports from our gorgeous beach (one of the best in St Lucia) and other exclusive activities in and around St Lucia.

When you stay at East Winds, you’ll find that our all-inclusive rates go that bit further than most – not least when it comes to dining – there’s not a buffet table in sight! Breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea, four course a la carte dinners  (or our renowned weekly beach barbecue), cocktails and a choice of fine wines by the glass, champagne and canapés before dinner are all included – even a picnic lunch hamper for you to take on an island adventure.

Honeymooners are treated like VIPs. On arrival, you’ll find a bottle of chilled fizz and homemade chocolates in your suite, and we also include the choice between a complimentary ‘his and hers’ massage in our garden spa or a romantic sunset cruise aboard a luxury catamaran. And we love to arrange unique and private moments such as a beach gazebo dinner for two – at no extra charge.

East Winds is increasingly a popular choice for a destination wedding. We cater for weddings from two to 72 people including the option to book out the entire hotel. Whilst we normally accept children aged eight years and over, you can bring children of any age if you book the hotel for your own private use.

Our Wedding Package is complimentary and includes legal fees, marriage licence and certificate, registrar’s attendance, decorated ceremony location, bouquet and boutonniere. Our UK wedding planner and on-site wedding coordinator, Glenda, will liaise with you from your first enquiry to the moment you’re married so all you have to do is say “I do”.

We also offer the bride and groom a complimentary week’s stay if they book 50 or more room nights for family and friends or a 50% discount if they book between 14 and 49 room nights. Furthermore, get married at East Winds and enjoy a 50% discount off your stay when you return for your First Anniversary.

Our guests’ enjoyment is our number one priority – we all look forward to welcoming you for your perfect romantic trip of a lifetime.
