East Winds Inn

Gros Islet, Gros-Islet, St. Lucia

Guests keep returning to this small all-inclusive resort on a secluded beach halfway between Castries and Rodney Bay, where 7 acres of botanical gardens surround 13 duplex gingerbread-style 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—primarily those from the United Kingdom and Canada. Each room has designer furnishings and a private patio or terrace. Two-thirds of the rooms have air-conditioning; the others—octagonal rooms with louvered windows to catch every breeze—have ceiling fans. Dining is beachside in the Flamboyant Room, the resort's thatch-roof restaurant. The menu, which changes nightly, always includes at least three vegetarian dishes. The resort faces a pretty beach; there's a free-form pool with swim-up bar and a ½-mile (1-km) fitness trail on the property.
