Escape to… The Crane Residential Resort |St. Philip, Barbados

Experience Barbados at its finest at The Crane resort on Crane Beach, named one of the 10 best beaches in the world by ‘Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous.’ Built in 1887 and fully restored in the 20th century, this historic resort blends Old World charm and 19th-century grandeur and furnishings with 21st-century luxuries, conveniences and amenities. Barbados’ oldest vacation hotel has created a new level of exclusive resort living that you’re sure to love.

In 1922, the Red Book of the West Indies reported ‘The Crane Hotel occupies a high-cliff on the Southeast coast of the island, swept by fresh, invigorating breezes. From its windows is displayed the beautiful sea, fringing with exquisite colors the white soft sandy beach of the hotel’s superb bathing place, that has no superior anywhere in the world”.

Today, Crane Beach remains as beautiful as it ever was – still overlooked by a charming, historic, 18-room hotel and also, by a magnificent residential resort with world-class amenities and services.

Pink, powder-soft sand graces your feet, a lush coconut grove sways in the tropical breeze and a golden Caribbean sun helps to make this the ultimate paradise for individuals, families and couples.

And then, there is the swimming – accessible by a staircase or a glass-front beach elevator (the only one of its kind in the Eastern Caribbean) and protected by a natural coral reef, Crane Beach boasts one of the best swimming venues on the island of Barbados.
