The World Renowned Beach

Crane Beach has been sought by locals and tourists alike for centuries. It’s serene, beautiful and the perfect spot to regain your sense of self as you switch off from the world and soak up the island sun. Grab a spot from where you can swish your feet along the powder soft sand and feel the tropical breeze blowing from the lush coconut groves. You’ll be forgiven for thinking we offer you the essence of paradise.

Visitors can access the beach either by a glass-front elevator protected by a natural coral reef or take the staircase. Make your way to one of the very best swimming venues on the island which, thanks to the gentle descent from shallow to deep, is perfect for family swimming and cooling off. The gentle waves are great for body surfing and boogie boarding.

Grab your umbrellas and sun loungers from the Beach Hut. When it’s time for something to eat, place your order at The Grove Bar & Grill and charge it to your room.


The Pool

There are no less than 5 outdoor pools at the Crane. The Historic Hotel pool serves as the center piece of the resort, set atop a cliff and framed by Doric columns. The pool also has a beautiful view of Crane Beach. If you prefer, you could take a dip in the stunning Lagoon Pool, found on the cliff-side. Here you will find 4 pools, along with a children’s pool and a waterfall pool. You can also enjoy the outdoor Jacuzzi spa pool set against the backdrop of the sea.
