About East Winds
It’s easy to understand why the supremely civilised and relaxing East Winds has such a loyal following from its regular visitors. The hotel spreads over 12 acres of beautiful, bird-rich tropical gardens that slope gently down to the quiet, palm-shaded golden sands and the calm waters of La Brelotte Bay. It feels appealingly secluded and the charming staff make all guests feel really at home.
East Winds sits in lush tropical grounds which contain a good-sized pool and a lovely open-sided clubhouse-style lounge which is the ideal place to dip into the library of good books or spend a couple of shady hours enjoying the range of board games provided. The gardens house over 80 varieties of tropical flowers and plants – you can check them all out in the guide supplied! The open-air beachfront restaurant is the focus for evenings at East Winds where, after complimentary champagne in the bar, guests can enjoy gourmet four-course, table d’hote dinners accompanied by excellent wines.
The 30 comfy bedrooms are scattered over the grounds in shingle-roofed, gingerbread-style cottages and hexagonal rondavels. Inside, framed prints of Caribbean scenes and mahogany and bamboo furniture set the unflashy tone, and all the rooms have outdoor sitting areas.
East Winds is all-inclusive, but in an utterly sophisticated way. Much of the hotel’s appeal is the unique, casually elegant house-party atmosphere created by managing director, Judith Milne and her vastly experienced team. Visitors here really are made to feel like guests and not just customers, and that is the enduring attraction of this award-winning hotel.
