You can spend an entire day sunbathing at Bottom Bay, explore the lush grounds of Hunte’s Gardens, go dancing at St. Lawrence Gap, and enjoy a fine dinner for two at The Cliff. But of course, you will need a place to stay, one that will set the mood for the entire trip. Scroll down to discover the best honeymoon resorts in Barbados.
Located in St. Philip, The Crane Resort holds the distinction for being the first luxury resort in Barbados (it was built in 1887.) But being the first doesn’t mean it’s outdated and boring. It’s the complete opposite! And if there’s one thing the resort excels in, it’s delivering a five-star experience for its honeymooners.
The one-bedroom suite with French doors that open to reveal the pool and expansive views of the ocean is highly recommended. It’s got a grand master bedroom with a king-sized mahogany bed, a beautiful master bathroom, and plenty of space to unwind. Somewhere at the establishment, you’ll find a long stretch of an immaculate beach, a luxury spa, and even some island history.
