Located next to one of the most famous and beautiful beaches on the south east coast, The Crane Resort was the Caribbean’s first resort hotel with its original building dating from 1887.  
 
With eighteen charming oceanfront rooms located in the Historic Hotel, further accommodation is based either In the Park or By the Sea.  Each room has a four poster bed, a marble bathroom and traditional coral stone walls.  Private pools and rooftop terraces are a feature in some guest rooms.
 
The Crane Resort has a village atmosphere at its core especially found in the village centre with boutique shops, Bar 1887, a grocery and bookshop, and D’Onofrio’s Italian restaurant.  Once a week a Bajan market is held here too.
 
Bajan and international cuisine can be found across The Crane Resort.   L’Azure offers seafood, ocean views and its famous Sunday brunch; Zen serves a range of delicious Japanese and Thai food in its glass fronted setting overlooking Crane Beach; and The Carriage House is a beach grill by the poolside.  Authentic Bajan cuisine is served at The Grove Bar and Grill on the beach itself.  Why not arrive there in the glass elevator?
 
There are six swimming pools, a fitness centre and tennis courts as well as a cliff top whirlpool.   The Serenity Spa and Wellness centre offers a wide of treatments in its three rooms.
 
As part of the excellent service throughout your stay, the Concierge can also arrange a variety of activities to enhance your stay - from car hire, tours, fishing trips and catamaran sailing charters.

Our Opinion

To be honest I am not a fan of large resorts, however within an instant I was loving The Crane. Its practically a luxury village like no-where else I have been.
 
There are so many places you will want to be it is hard to choose, countless serene pools with water falls and views of the sea nearby, and then one of the most fun and beautiful beaches I have ever visited. Another first was taking a lift to get to the beach – something different for many of us. The suites are perfect for families or couples looking for a great amount of space, most of which have a private pool or Jacuzzi as well – like you don’t have enough pools to choose from already.
 
The food is brilliant and there are a number of restaurants, my favourite being L’Azure overlooking the stunning beach, and many types of cuisines from Japanese, Thai, Caribbean, Italian and a Beach Bar and Grill with something for all. You won’t need to venture out of the resort, unless of course you want too and if so being in the south you are close to both Bridgetown and St Lawrence Gap.
