Why You Need to Vacation at The Crane

Why You Need to Vacation at The Crane

It’s not like you’ll need much convincing (especially upon seeing the photographs), however when choosing the best resort for your Barbados holiday, The Crane will be the difference between a good holiday and an amazing holiday. Here’s why you need to vacation at The Crane.

Crane Beach has been named one of the 10 best beaches in the world! This impressive title is totally deserved, as the beach stretches along miles of soft, pink sand, with coconut groves and the warm Caribbean sun to complete the picture. The incredibly blue, sparkling water is a sight for the eyes. Access to the beach from the hotel is easy for everyone, as you can choose to take the staircase that descends right onto the beach, or for the less agile, the glass-front beach elevator (the only one of its kind in the Eastern Caribbean).  Taking a dip will provide you with a feeling of both calm and happiness, as Crane Beach is the best on the island. Your feet will be protected with the absence of sea urchins, stones or coral, and the beach gradually moves from shallow to deep, giving both novice and experienced swimmers a place to play. For those who prefer sunbathing and lounging, we provide you with umbrellas, lounge chairs, and towels to make your experience as comfortable as possible, as well as security manning the beach for your safety.



When it comes to vacation, outside of lounging and relaxing, dining is something we all look forward to. Exercise regimes and diets are left behind at home, and indulgence in local delicacies and unique fare are activities in themselves. The Crane offers a range of dining experiences to suit the wide variety of tastes that our guests may have. Our award winning restaurants range from fine dining to casual beachside or poolside fare, and extends to in-room dining as well, for those times you want to order in. We offer a selection of cuisines, from International and Caribbean to Japanese and Thai. Our beachside bar and grill serves up tasty barbecued delights that are perfect to indulge in straight from your lounge chair. Bar 1887 is a fun and casual spot for drinks, appetizers, and good conversation. With so many options to choose from, every night of your stay will be a culinary experience – which is why you need to vacation at The Crane!



The Crane Village is something that really sets apart The Crane from other resorts. Imagine a 55,000 square foot village created with heritage architecture of Barbadian design. The Village allows guests to enjoy the best of Caribbean culture, feel relaxed with the views of the sparkling Atlantic Ocean, and shop at their leisure. And the best part is that guests can do all this without leaving The Crane! Cobblestone streets, tropical gardens and beautiful architecture give guests the perfect backdrop in which to browse for souvenirs, local artisanal crafts and traditional delicacies.

The Crane’s Serenity Spa is truly a relaxing experience. Whether for couples, honeymooners, or just yourself, get pampered with the many treatments offered. Everything from massages, facials, body treatments, manicures, and pedicures await you. Our highly trained and professional staff will further your well-being by offering service based on your exercise, nutrition, relaxation, and self-awareness goals. Our approach is to provide a space of holistic well-being, and The Crane’s Serenity Spa allows you to focus on you and your needs.
