East Winds

Low-key, private and all-inclusive

Nestled in a tropical cove with turquoise waters lapping at the shimmering white sands is the intimate boutique hotel East Winds. Welcoming guests for over eight years, this exceptional hotel balances barefoot luxury with the laid back Caribbean lifestyle. By day there are acres of tropical garden to explore and activities aplenty, including watersports, yoga and a jogging trail. Come the evening, the restaurant offers a different four-course gourmet menu six nights of the week, on the seventh night the hotel hosts a barbeque. At the end of a long day the understated elegance of the rooms and suites provide a welcome retreat.

Fabulous Relaxing Stay!

rutland

We recently returned from a fabulously relaxing and restful stay at East Winds. Everything from the beautiful rooms, gorgeous gardens & beach, amazing food to the wonderful staff cannot be faulted! Despite having a few days of rain we still were able to chill out and enjoy the hospitality of East Winds. The staff are truly some of the best we have encountered - always smiling, laughing and happy to spend time chatting - we really do miss them! This is a perfect holiday for those looking for some R&R. Entertainment is low key (but great) and the pace of life is laid back. Definitely not for those looking for a loud, busy, bustling holiday bit absolutely perfect for us! Thank you to everyone and we will be back for sure very soon!

Absolutely met our expectations

swansea

Comfortable, traditional, understated. If you want miles of brightly lit marble and fountains and anonymity it’s not for you. The most relaxing holiday ever - from the lounge at Gatwick (included in Virgin’s package) to the arrival at the airport (no pushy baggage handlers but take a pen with you to fill out the entry paperwork), then a longish transfer (1.5 hours) to arrive at a quietly lit East Winds and a surreal cacophony of birds and frogs. Little touches like insect repellent in the rooms (and washroom facilities), iron and ironing board for your holiday linens, big umbrellas, all immediately make you feel at home. The staff – waiting and bar – are wonderful and friendly and so cheerful – and it says a lot that, from the cook upwards, they seem to get a free hand to run the place and happily interact with guests. We met Judith just the once, there’s no overbearing, officious management overseeing of this place. The sports guys were absolutely wonderful. Happy to teach you to sail, keep an eye on you while you’re out on a Hobie or kayak or just take you out for a trip around the bay on a turtle hunt. Another small Hobie would be great. A queue tended to develop during our stay it was so popular. Food – consistently good, not cordon bleu intense, but always with “mmm” factor, subtly flavoured by a chef who really knows what he’s doing. We never once got to the pudding stage in the evenings but don’t miss the home-made ice cream if you can make room for it. Entertainment – some really good musicians and some great fun and inclusive dancing and singing nights. We did the sunset cruise – 80 US dollars a person – unforgettable experience of quietly sailing along and seeing the coast and the sunset from the sea all the while drinking champagne and hot canapes. The rum distillery tour at 50 US dollars is to be recommended and make sure you’ve room in your case and enough weight allowance to buy at least a couple of bottles - way cheaper than the airport. There’s a fabulous coffee style Baileys if you don’t like rum. And another feather in the cap for East Winds - it’s cheaper to book trips through the hotel and Simeon accompanies guests on trips so you really can just sit back and enjoy whilst being totally looked after. Weather – second week of November – either absolutely lovey with a breeze or warm and humid for a few hours some days with a handful of daytime cooling showers, overnight deluges – perfect.
