About the Hotel
Situated on one of Barbados's best beaches and touted as the first resort to grace the Caribbean, The Crane Residential Resort is an haute and historic retreat at once. Overlooking Crane Beach, the original hotel - once a 19th-century mansion - has been restored to its original splendor. Each of the rooms enjoys high ceilings, hardwood floors and authentic antique furnishings, coupled with oversize four-poster beds carved from mahogany. Complementing the historic mansion are the newly-built Penthouse Villas, with floor-to-ceiling louvered doors, stone floors, gourmet kitchens and spectacular views. The Private Residences are also available and come with incredible amenities such as coral stone walls, private plunge or full-size pools, and all the privacy you can envision.
The Crane Residential Resort houses a trio of dining venues including L'Azure Restaurant, known for its tempting range of classic Caribbean dishes, fresh seafood and panoramic ocean views. Zen Restaurant is a marriage of Thai and Japanese fare with traditional Tatami rooms, a succulent sushi bar and private dining options - plus it was recently rated "#1 for Food in Barbados" by Zagat Survey. Completing the trifecta is the Carriage House Poolside Restaurant, a century-old stable transformed into a chatty space where guests can enjoy divine food and tropical cocktails all day long. Swim in one of four sparkling pools, including an infinity-edge design as well as another pool that teeters on the edge of a cliff. The beach, with its powdery texture and lush coconut grove, is protected by a natural coral reef and offers the best swimming on the island.
