April 1, 2015Tom

Take a moment to daydream on your ideal hotel in the Caribbean. You probably don’t know it yet, but The Crane Barbados is the holiday of your daydreams.

Brilliant white sands. Patchwork blues and greens from the sea and the shoreline. An atmosphere of humble refinement. Lush, welcoming luxury. Complete bliss, isn’t it?

To sum up, beachfront Caribbean holidays don’t get better than this, and you’ll quickly realise that the perfect seafront holiday isn’t such a fantasy after all.

The appropriate fanfare

A resort as fine as The Crane deserves a proper introduction. This resort is a Caribbean beach paradise that many consider unparalleled.

The pink tints to the white sand put a distinctive fingerprint on The Crane’s waterfront. Plus, a flourishing coconut grove lines the local lands with the signature swaying foliage of island living.

The skyline and colours make it seem like a postcard portrait, however The Crane is all about living and experiencing the island rhythms.

Discover the calm ocean which is perfect for swimming, surfing, or snorkelling. As well as the gardens that tempt you with floral scents and a chorus of wildlife.

The Crane itself lives up to its first impressions. Experience unparalleled service, with attentiveness and courteousness every step of the way.

Award-winning cuisine is spread over 4 à la carte restaurants. They cover everything from Oriental dining to fine European delicacies.

In addition to the delicious food, there are the five private pools and rooftop terraces to give you a type of peace and quiet rare to discover.

Overall, it’s a well-rounded hotel that strives for excellence in all pursuits, without fault or compromise.


That’s quite the trophy cabinet

There’s a certain film star grace that underwrites every mention of The Crane. It’s got an undeniable pull that makes it completely irresistible, like it was plucked from the stills of a cinematic masterpiece.

It’s not all showmanship

That said, despite its beachfront superstardom, The Crane Barbados doesn’t make you feel constantly draped in the limelight. The property’s slogan puts it perfectly: we don’t come here to be seen, we come here to disappear.

There’s an excellent sense of privacy surrounding The Crane and this is highlighted by the accommodations. For instance, the guestrooms here are split into three distinct categories:

Residences by the Sea

The Crane has taken it upon itself to define the standard of luxury oceanfront accommodation in Barbados.

Finished with touches of hardwood, stone, and authentic Bajan décor, the Residences by the Sea pair gorgeous design with stunning ocean views.

Plus, they give you loads of options for independence as they even come with fully equipped kitchenettes.

Residences in the Park

The refinement that underpins The Crane is certainly best embodied by the Residences in the Park.

For example, you can indulge yourself with a ground-floor room complete with a private garden, a dining gazebo, and an outside Jacuzzi.

Or, slip away to enjoy your private sundeck with its own rooftop pool, BBQ, and bar at your penthouse.

It’s all the trimmings of modern luxury wrapped up with authentic island peacefulness.

Historic Residences

Last but not least, with age comes class, and so it is with the Historic Residences. For instance, the high ceilings, tall cedar doors, antique furniture, and coral-stone walls are over 200 years old.

The Crane has a long and rich history dating back to 1887. The Historic Residences both encapsulate and reinvigorate this colourful heritage.


Let’s get booking!

When you throw free WIFi, 24 hour security and a fully equipped beach hut into the mix, the balance between old and new is perfected.

There’s even a shopping village, with a department store, a weekly street market, and a coffee shop.

In conclusion, The Crane is the perfect place to experience the island from a wonderfully cultured perspective.

If The Crane has captured your imagination, tickle the orange button and we can have a good chinwag on the ins and outs. Make those daydreams real, Holidaymakers.
