Bevy of places to stay in Barbados

There’s nothing subtle about Sandy Lane. From its white exteriors to its marble interiors, the entire structure exudes luxury. It’s perhaps why celebrities are attracted to the place, gaining a reputation for its indulgent services and facilities – from an underwater sound system to the shamelessly excessive buffet offerings at Bajan Blue. Rent a private villa or go for something a bit more modest – but only just – with one of their luxury rooms. If you’re looking for some R&R, book in a treatment at the spa or dine in at one of the resort’s restaurants.

The Crane

Everything about it says relaxed, from its manicured gardens to the four-poster beds in the hotel’s softly lit rooms. If sun and sand are what you’re looking for, then the Crane is your best bet.
