The Crane has its own nursery, and the grounds are a reflection of the gardners perfection.
You'll find lush vegetation and flowering plants throughout the property.
Crane Beach is 200 steps below the hotel. Dramatic cliffs embrace the great expanse of pink sand and bright turquoise waters offering guests a compelling view. To view one of the best beaches in the world,
The Crane is located well away from the bustle of the main tourist strip to the south. The location still affords easy access by road to the island’s capital, Bridgetown, the rugged Atlantic coastline to the north and the upscale hotels and restaurants of the west coast of Barbados. In short, it is a perfect location: Genuinely secluded, but not isolated.
Privacy and seclusion
have been a hallmark of
The Crane for 115 years.
Guests on the higher floors have the incredibly breathtaking views from the romantically seductive plunge pools located in turrets overlooking the cliff and the ocean far below.
Guests in ground floor suites have the advantage of large outdoor terraces and private pools. Some Private Residences feature pools
up to 28 feet in length, many with
a "infinity edge", providing breathtaking ocean views.
