All-inclusive resort with superb customer service, according to past guests
Limited selection of dishes at the on-site restaurant
Occupying 12 acres along St. Lucia's La Brelotte Beach, East Winds Inn provides a relaxed, spacious oasis for vacationers looking for a luxurious yet low-key retreat. Each room features a private, shaded terrace or patio, a stocked minibar, a coffee maker, free Wi-Fi access and a flat-screen TV. And because East Winds Inn comprises only 30 rooms, recent guests said the staff provides individualized treatment to all its lodgers. With easy access to the sandy shore, visitors can snorkel, paddleboard, kayak or sail; the all-inclusive room rates cover equipment rentals for all of these water sports. Travelers can also go for a dip in the heated outdoor pool or sip a cocktail at the swim-up pool bar. For Caribbean- and internationally inspired meals, patrons can visit the property's restaurant. All meals and drinks are free for guests, though some past diners wished the eatery's menu was more diverse.

  • TripAdvisor Travelers' Choice Awards 2019



This small, all-inclusive beachfront resort offers a winning combination of old-fashioned charm and pampering attention to detail. Set in a lush garden of fantastical tropical flora (overseen by a crack garden staff), East Winds is that warm, welcoming place that guests return to year after year.

Frommer's Very Highly Recommended



Guests keep returning to this small all-inclusive resort on a secluded beach south of Rodney Bay; 12 acres of botanical gardens surround 13 duplex cottages, three ocean-view rooms, and a suite. In fact, particularly in the high season, more than half of the first-time visitors become repeat guests.


East Winds Inn doesn't try to compete with the mega all-inclusive resorts on St. Lucia. Instead, the intimate, 30-room, upper-middle-range all-inclusive caters to guests who want to relax in a quiet location without constant attention.
