As the oldest continuously operating hotel in the Carribean, The Crane Resort is beautifully stretched over 40 acres on Barbados’ southeast coast. First opened back in 1887 – now fully restored, expanded and upgraded, this luxurious property combines incredible natural beauty with a romantic sense of isolation.
The Crane Resort has had over a century to perfect luxury amenities and services expected by today’s most discerning travellers. Cascading cliff-top pools, award-winning restaurants and the spectacular Crane Beach – referred to as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. It even has an exciting kid’s club for all you family folks.
About the The COVID Lab
With Barbados’ travel protocols requiring a COVID-19 PCR test to end hotel quarantine, The Crane Resort has opened its own on-site COVID-19 testing laboratory to offer reliable and timely test results to its members and guests. The lab is part of the resort’s mission to help recharge the tourism industry in Barbados in the midst of the ongoing pandemic.
In celebration of opening, the Barbados COVID Lab is offering a “Fast Track Testing” package for US$199 that includes personal VIP service, being whisked through customs, immigration and the various Ministry of Health processes at the airport, a one-way transfer to The Crane Resort, a PCR test on arrival, a Rapid Antigen test on departure and a luxury “isolation suite” at no charge in the unlikely event a fully vaccinated visitor tests positive.
For Canadians, the cost will be US$229 (around $270-$300 CAD) and will include a PCR test on both arrival and departure.
Now, guests of The Crane Resort, as well as other visitors, expats and citizens can have their PCR tests processed within hours.
The ultimate, the sexiest, the top, the best, a bucket list beach are just some of the words people use to describe it. Personally I haven’t been, but it’s definitely in my near future travel plans now.
