Welcome To The Crane Village
The Crane Residential Resort has been in operation since 1887 and has certainly earned its reputation as a leading luxury resort in Barbados.
The Crane offers three categories of oceanfront accommodation which feature all the comforts you could desire during your stay in Barbados.
With a fully equipped kitchen, free WiFi connection, DVD player, Jacuzzi bathtub, spa showers, direct dial telephone with free calls to most international destinations, and (in most cases) even a private ocean view pool.
However, what many people don’t know is that the Crane offers much more than merely luxurious accommodation.
The Crane Village is fast becoming a destination point in Barbados. The uniquely designed 55,000 square-foot Crane Village is nestled amongst the beautifully landscaped Crane Resort and overlooks the Atlantic Ocean so you can get the full Crane experience in style.
The Village features historical architecture, cobblestone streets, and hints to Barbadian design and culture all over.
Want to know the best part? You don’t need even to be a guest of the Crane Resort accommodation to enjoy the Crane Village. It’s open to both locals and visitors to the island, to experience all it has to offer.
Conveniently located in the parish of St. Philip and less than 10 minutes driving east from Grantley Adams International Airport (GAIA), the Crane Village caters to a variety of clientele in a relaxed yet exclusive environment.
