St, Philip, Barbados
The Crane Beach Resort
Set on Barbados’ world-famous Crane Beach – named "one of the Ten Best Beaches in the World" by Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous – The Crane is the Caribbean's first resort hotel. First opened in 1887 and now fully restored and expanded, this truly unique property combines old-world charm and incredible natural beauty with a romantic sense of seclusion.
The Crane resort consist of multiple buildings with each building having a range of studio, one bedroom, two or three bedroom style accommodation. Our unit is a two bedroom with plunge pool as noted on the Crane website (www.thecrane.com). In addition the resort has four restaurants, a small onsite convenience store, a bakery and duty free retail shopping as well as close proximity to the airport. There is also complimentary WiFi in all residences and around the resort - even on the beach - and complimentary long-distance calls to most international destinations.
The Crane Residential Resort consists of multiple low-rise condo units all of which face the ocean and are all identical in terms of unit layout. Your unit will be in one of buildings 3, 4, 5, 8 or 9 and assigned on check in. The Crane operates as a fractional resort and the first of the “private residence” suites opened in 2001. While there is air conditioning in the units, the Crane is best enjoyed for those who prefer "open air" and the constant trade winds that come in from across the ocean. Regardless of the building you are assigned you will be able to appreciate spectacular ocean views. Here, charm and comfort is everything.
Extremely spacious, this oceanfront residence is in one of buildings 3, 4, 5, 8 or 9 (specific unit to be assigned at check in), features hardwood or stone floors, 12’ ceilings, authentic Barbadian furnishings and décor, and a private plunge pool (note that the plunge pool is not heated). Also included is fully equipped kitchen with white appliances, perfect for dining in or for entertaining al fresco on a spacious terrace.
This residence also features an iron and ironing board, hair dryer, safety deposit box, washer/dryer, direct dial telephone with free calls to most international destinations (UK, USA and Canada) and free WiFi access.

The Crane is a fractional ownership property and like our owners members pay a small guest fee for daily air conditioning usage (1$ US per hour per air conditioning unit) that is metered by the hour. Please note that 2 bedroom units have two individual air conditioning units that are metered seperately. However there are constant trade winds and we enjoy the ocean breeze and rarely use the air conditioning.
