Crane Barbados Sets Sights On Canadians

Resort Providing ‘Near Normal’ Experience To Sun-Seekers

Since it re-opened in July, The Crane Resort, Barbados has perfected its protocols for guests amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, making it easier than ever for Canadians to enjoy a safe vacation in Barbados.

Naturally built for social distancing, the expansive resort has been leading the charge on island with a refined, “near-normal” travel experience.

Now, with the only requirements to provide a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours pre-arrival, and a second test post-arrival included in the rate, Canadian travellers can enjoy a dose of tropical sunshine this fall.

As the oldest operating hotel in the Caribbean, The Crane Resort combines old-world charm and incredible natural beauty with an abundant sense of natural seclusion.

Set on forty acres of oceanfront land along the island’s stunning southeast coast, the resort offers unparalleled service and spacious, luxurious accommodation. Originally used as a health spa by Victorian visitors at the turn of the century, the Crane has long been known for its healing warm breezes – the perfect place to shelter at this time.

The Crane’s suites feature fully fitted kitchens, living areas, private gardens, rooftop terraces and private pools, as well as an array of choice available for room delivery.

With the health and safety of its guests at the forefront, guests will enjoy everything The Crane has to offer including glittering lagoon pools, the powder-pink sands of Crane Beach, cuisine from five restaurants, duty-free shopping, a relaxing spa and fitness facilities.

All the while, they can remain safe in the knowledge that an on-site doctor, strict sanitization, and social distancing measures are in-place as part of The Crane Confidence Programme.

Should travel plans need to change, The Crane offers a flexible cancellation policy of up to 24 hours prior to arrival. For trips scheduled from now until Dec. 18, guests can also reschedule their trip within 12 months of their original travel dates.

Owned and operated by Canadian businessman and visionary Paul Doyle, Doyle set out to create a hybrid of a residential property with full resort facilities. Because of the luxurious residential aspect, a village was developed that features conveniences such as a shop for food and groceries, an intimate bar, and award-winning full-service restaurants.

“Fellow Canadians in particular,” says Doyle, “are attracted to The Crane because we are a little out of the way. It’s completely tranquil and exactly as you would imagine the Caribbean to be. It’s paradise for those that just want to be one with nature and enjoy the beautiful, healthy breeze that has lured visitors since 1887.”

The Crane’s Fall Getaway package starts from CDN$250 per night and includes daily breakfast and the mandatory second test.

Available to book until Nov. 17, for travel from now until Dec. 18, 2020.
