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.
