The Crane Resort


Email | Share |

Blush-pink sand and turquoise water give The Crane Resort a special place in the Caribbean. This lovely historic retreat is located in Barbados, about five miles northeast of Grantley Adams International Airport.

Cherished for its casual luxury and warm hospitality, this splendid beach is protected by a natural coral reef just offshore, and touted as the first resort ever to grace the Caribbean. Glide through crystal waters in one of four sparkling pools, including an infinity-edge design, and an even more unusual version that teeters on the edge of a cliff. Guests will enjoy six swimming pools, two tennis courts, four restaurants, two bars, and a colorful shopping village. Lush coconut groves linger on this gorgeous tropical landscape dusted in rosy sand, boasting cascading pools and the best swimming on the island.

Housing a trio of fantastic dining venues, the hotel retains some of the most delicious menu items in the Caribbean. Dine at L'Azure Restaurant for a tempting range of classic island dinners, fresh seafood and ocean-view seating. Thai and Japanese cuisine unite at Zen Restaurant, offering a succulent sushi bar, private dining options and soothing Tatami, rice-straw crafted rooms.

Kids ages 4-12 will love the Calypso Kids Club. Located within the Crane Village, children will take part in a variety of fun-filled activities such as arts and crafts, movies, magic, and more. Babysitting services are also available.

Enjoy high-ceiling rooms, hardwood floors, and authentic antique furnishings. Relax on enormous four-poster beds carved from mahogany, or for even more luxurious accommodation, spend a night in a magnificent Penthouse Villa, with floor-to-ceiling louvered doors, stone floors, a gourmet kitchen, and extraordinary views of the island. Private Residences are also available, equipped with opulent amenities such as coral stone walls, private plunge pools and all the privacy you can envision.

Crane is amazing

Had a great time hanging and chilling with family and friends. Everything is well kept and nice, even the grounds. They have also been doing a great job of keeping the sargassum weed at Bay. Can't wait for our next trip!

Fantastic Staycation

My stay at the Crane was absolutely fantastic. My family and I totally enjoyed every moment. The staff was so helpful and caring. The food was excellent, breakfast at Lazure and lunch at the carriage house everything was great. Definitely looking forward to going again soon.

Needs more time

We did a Family staycation and we totally enjoyed it. The kiddos love kids club and we loved everything else. We got much needed quiet time and family time, even went to the gym. We love the Crane, better than home!

Best girls trip ever!

Who needs to leave the island to get away and enjoy a fantastic girls weekend??? You don’t have to go anywhere when there’s the Crane. From the fabulous room to the beautiful grounds and breathtaking sea views, it’s a place to totally unplug from ‘real life’ and do as little or as much as your heart desires. The staff is beyond friendly and you can’t help but feel special by the way they treat you. I’ve done my fair share of traveling and have had plenty of girl trips. The Crane beat every other experience hands down! Do yourself a favour and make your booking today!

I visited Crane beach for the first and it was different an extremely nice experience I was impressed with the rooms with the Minnie pool the whole step was amazing it was like if I was some place else. The ocean view was mesmerizing very relaxing indeed and without a doubt I will be going back for my own staycation. Stay tuned.
