The Experience

Perched on a dramatic cliff on the southeast coast of Barbados, The Crane was the Caribbean's first resort hotel. Originally built in 1887, this hotel has been expanded and transformed into a luxury all suite resort. This truly unique property combines elegance, old-world charm and incredible natural beauty with a romantic sense of seclusion. An elevator descends to the pink sands of the famous Crane Beach where guests can swim and snorkel in the azure Caribbean Sea. The Crane features a network of freeform pools with waterfalls and fountains as well as a Roman-style infinity pool which is the perfect place to enjoy panoramic sea views. The resort’s unique restaurants include L'AZure, which features classic Caribbean cuisine and a popular gospel brunch on Sundays. Zen Restaurant offers authentic Asian cuisine in front of large glass windows at the cliff edge - ideal for a romantic dinner by candlelight. The Crane Resort is the perfect choice for a luxury holiday escape or a romantic honeymoon in paradise. The Crane was the first hotel in Barbados, established over 100 years ago. Over the past five years it has gone through an ambitious development programme and has emerged as a luxury resort without comparison. In recognition it has recently received the prestigious Four-Diamond Award bestowed by the Automobile Association of America (AAA). Recognized for its stunning beauty, The Crane was named "one of the Ten Best Beaches in the World" by Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous.
