Hotel Highlights: The first luxury resort to open in Barbados, the allure of The Crane shines as bright as the postcard-worthy pink-tinged sandy beach on which it sits. Located on its own southeastern corner of the island paradise, the fortress-like turreted hotel features modernized interiors in a tropical neo-colonial style. Spread over 40 acres of winding pathways with lush vegetation at every turn, there’s plenty of restaurant and pool action (all ground floor suites have infinity edge pools) and of course breathtaking views out over the glistening Caribbean.
Eat + Drink: Go to Zen for delicious Japanese Thai fusion with panoramic views of Crane Beach. Order the Phuket Khao Phat (traditional fried rice) and wash it down with their signature Coconut Martini. For tapas, handcrafted cocktails, and a taste of buzzy island nightlife, you can’t beat Bar 1887. If you want to wander into the village, D’Onofrio’s is a heavenly Southern Italian trattoria or indulge in contemporary Caribbean fare overlooking the Atlantic Ocean at L’Azure.
Beauty + Wellness: Serenity Spa at The Crane specializes in Caribbean-influenced treatments. Try the Calypso Cool massage or rejuvenate your complexion with the ELEMIS Superfood Pro-Radiance facial.
Curated Experience: No Caribbean vacation is complete without sampling its famed export, so visit the Foursquare Distillery for a Rum Tour and hand-crafted cocktail.
