Sea Spa: Serenity Spa at the Crane Resort, Barbados

Sea Spa: Serenity Spa at the Crane Resort, Barbados

Where is The Crane Resort Serenity Spa?

Barbados might be associated with bling and beats but those seeking tranquillity shun the west coast in favour of the secluded pink sands and lagoon-style pools of this well-loved 16-hectare (40-acre) complex. Siting on low cliffs on the island’s south-east corner, winding paths through tropical vegetation link the resort’s turreted buildings, six restaurants and neo-colonial village, complete with a deli, art gallery and boutiques.

What's it Like?

The self-contained charm of the Crane means that a dusting of celebrities – including Bajan local Rihanna – regularly stop by to escape the crowds and paparazzi. To keep up with its distinguished clientele’s demands, the Serenity Spa – which lies at the heart of the hotel’s historic, cobbled quarters that date back to 1887 – has recently been refurbished.

Treatments at The Crane Resort Serenity Spa

To tune into the laid-back Caribbean vibe head to one of its candlelit, lavender-scented treatment rooms for a Calypso Cool massage. Using warmed almond oil, your therapist will perform a Swedish massage inspired by the rhythms of calypso music, using their elbows and forearms to ease out knots, stretching and pulling limbs in the process. If you’re worried about the intensity of these techniques, ask for Danee to be your masseuse – she applies gentler pressure than most while still managing to smooth out tension and tightness.

Best by Boat

Yachts of up to 101 metres can berth at Barbados Port, a 40-minute drive from the Crane in Cheapside. Ten minutes closer is the natural harbour of Carlisle Bay.
