History, Luxury and Island Tranquility
In 1922, The Red Book of the West Indies reported “The Crane hotel occupies a high cliff on the Southeast 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.” And recently Crane Beach was named, “one of the top ten beaches in the world” by Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous. This is the other side of Barbados, unspoiled, spacious, naturally spectacular, devoid of traffic and formality.
In the 19th Century, The Crane was built as the Caribbean’s first resort hotel and has been known ever since for its sophistication and old-world charm. Set on 40 acres on the Southeastern coast of Barbados, The Crane is best known for its spectacular beach, cooling sea breezes and exquisite restaurants, serving sumptuous cuisine in a truly breathtaking setting.
