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 Junior Suites with Garden View, featuring bay windows with cedar shutters, mini-kitchens and a furnished balcony or terrace. 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.
