This is How We Make Your Luxury Resort Vacation Feel Safe

This is How We Make Your Luxury Resort Vacation Feel Safe

The factors influencing travel have changed over the past few years and tourists are rightfully taking more precautions. As we enter the third pandemic summer, many are asking, “will I be safe?”. As a luxury resort with over a century of experience catering to changing travel needs, we’ve anticipated your new (and old) expectations to create a vacation experience that not only feels safe, but it is safe. Here are some of the measures we’ve taken to create a safe and enjoyable stay for you when you book The Crane.                                                                                               

We introduced an on-site Covid testing lab

At the height of the pandemic, we introduced our own on-site lab to provide COVID-19 testing services for guests. Named the Barbados Covid Lab, we offer reliable and timely Rapid Antigen tests and PCR tests that are especially helpful when guests need negative results to re-enter their home countries.

Our testing services are family and child friendly, easy for large groups and professional. But don’t just take our word for it. Our reviewers have called us “extremely thorough”, “empathetic”, and we’ve even been described as a “highlight” of one traveller’s vacation.

Appointments for testing can be made online at www.barbadoscovidlab.com and at the time of publishing, costs are:

PCR test: USD$99

Rapid Antigen test: USD$44 

We placed sanitizing stations across the property

We know that consumer behaviour with respect to sanitizing has changed forever and we’ve adapted our property to meet that. We rolled out a sanitization programme that included placing touch-free sanitizing stations in vital, and non-intrusive areas such as the lobby and restaurant entrances.

These stations are not only an opportunity for you to keep yourself and others safe, but they serve as a reminder of our commitment to keeping your well-being at 100. Our goal is to maintain the Crane Resort as a safe space for all who share it.

Staff are masked always and tested frequently

The safety and wellbeing of Crane Resort guests and staff has always been our top priority. We continuously follow guidance from local and international public health authorities as we evolve our health and safety protocols.

As such, our teams continue to wear face coverings and practice social distancing, particularly in indoor settings and during social interactions. This practice is done for fully vaccinated and non-vaccinated staff. Currently, over 80% of our staff are fully vaccinated. 

We have 24/7 security and a gated entrance

One thing that remains the same is our commitment to your physical safety on our premises. Barbados is a safe, cosmopolitan island, but all precautions are made to ensure your rest and relaxation is unperturbed.

Booking with us means you’ll have access to a luxury resort that has everything you could possibly need in one grandiose space, while being secure the entire time.
