What to Pack for Your Trip to Barbados https://www.thecrane.com/blog/2017/08/17/pack-trip-barbados/ https://www.thecrane.com/blog/2017/08/17/pack-trip-barbados/#respond Thu, 17 Aug 2017 15:42:11 +0000 https://www.thecrane.com/?p=6917 Making travel plans to Barbados is very exciting; but what should you pack?

Making travel plans to Barbados is very exciting; but what should you pack? The Crane has put together a list of essentials for your Barbados vacation.

From Your Files

In order to begin your vacation, you need to actually get to Barbados. The first thing you should pack is a valid passport, along with completed customs documents and a plane ticket. Remember to make copies just in case these documents go missing and keep them in another location.

From Your Closet

It’s always summer in Barbados. Due to its location, Barbados does not experience the 4 seasons, so you should expect lots of sunshine and pack accordingly.  Light, breathable fabrics such as cotton, chiffon and linen are perfect for this weather and allow you to be cooled by the light island breezes. Be sure to pack an elegant outfit or two if you plan to go out to dinner at a nice restaurant.

From Your Shoe Rack

Leave your boots at home. Flip flips, sandals and flats would ensure your comfort during your Barbados vacation. Throw in a pair of heels for nights of elegant dining and breathable sneakers as well, in case you decide to partake in activities such as hiking.

From Your Swimwear

If you’re traveling to Barbados, the beach is a must; so swimwear is essential. Depending on the length of your stay, you should pack at least 2 swimsuits or beach trunks. That way, while you wear one, the other could be drying. Don’t forget to bring a cover up to wear while you leave the beach, maybe to grab lunch for example. This swimwear can also come in handy on days when you choose not to leave your hotel and use the pool facilities instead.

From Your Medicine Cabinet

Your hotel might provide soap and shampoos, but you might opt to bring along your favourite brands. You can also bring travel sized toothpaste, toothbrushes, shaving cream and so on or you can purchase these items from a supermarket or convenience store when you arrive in Barbados. It is advised to pack any necessary medications with your toiletries, but be sure to have a note from your doctor as well, just in case.

It is important to pack sunscreen and insect repellent to help you deal with the effects of the sunny weather and the mosquitoes respectively. Also, regarding cosmetics, be sure to include lip balm and basic skin care products.

Leave It at Home

It is best not to travel with any articles of clothing with the camouflage design, since it is illegal to wear or have in anything with this design in your possession unless you are in the army and wear it as a part of your uniform.

Ready for your Barbados getaway? Book your stay at The Crane Resort and start packing!

Choosing a wedding dress for your big day can be a beautiful, but stressful event in a bride-to-be’s life. To help in your choosing and planning, The Crane has shared six tips on choosing the perfect dress for a beach wedding.

Use the Location as Inspiration

It is important to choose a dress which complements or is inspired by the beach venue which you have chosen. Take into consideration features such as the ocean breezes, the colour of the sand, the flora, cliffs and so on. By combining features of the location with your personal style, you will be well on your way to choosing a beautiful beach wedding dress.

Fabric Choice

A beach wedding means you should probably be prepared for warm weather and beautiful sunshine. Since you should be comfortable during your wedding, you should not have to worry about over heating half way through the service. To avoid this, opt for light, breathable and flowing fabrics which will allow you to be cooled by the light ocean breezes. Lighter fabrics which can be considered include linen, cotton, chiffon and charmeuse, among others. Keep in mind that certain fabrics such as lace, may pick up debris from the sand.

Colour

The colour of your beach wedding dress is important. Most brides stick to the conventional white dress, however for those who don’t, it is important to keep the venue in mind. Dark colours tend to make persons hot in warm climates. As such, it is recommended that you choose a light or bright colour for your beach wedding dress and for your bridal party, if any.

Length and Style

Beach weddings tend to be more relaxed and have less of a formal feel than traditional indoor weddings. The style of your dress should reflect this. Choose a more casual dress which is beautiful and flowing to look fashionable in the outdoor beach venue. Even if you decide on a long flowing wedding look, ensure that the dress doesn’t fit below the ankles as you might risk tripping over while going down the aisle.

Transportability

Everything must be perfect on your big day, so you should plan all the small details in advance. You may need to transport your dress by plane (for a destination wedding) or by a vehicle. Considering the chosen material and style, you should plan on how to transport your dress in a manner which does not cause excessive wrinkling or any other damage to the dress.

Shoes

Though not part of the dress, shoes complement the chosen beach wedding dress. Remember that heels and sand don’t go together. Choose a pair of trendy sandals to complete your dream look. Some brides even choose to embrace the beach and the sand and wear no shoes!

Ready to begin planning your perfect beach wedding? Crane Beach is the perfect venue. The Crane Resort has onsite Wedding Coordinators to help you plan your dream wedding. Contact us to begin your planning.

When planning a trip, you want to make sure that you get the best value for money from your chosen resort, based on what you require. To help you with your decision, The Crane has put together a list of amenities and services that make a great resort.

Free Wi-Fi

It’s 2017, free Wi-Fi is a wonderful luxury to stay in touch with family and friends, share updates on your trip, do research on the resort and country and so on. This adds a measure of convenience which most guests highly appreciate.

Wellness Facilities

Health and wellness is important to many travelers and this amenity often sets great resorts apart from the others. On site Spas and Fitness Centres are wonderful for those guests who wish to keep up with their wellness regimes. Resorts such as The Crane also have Juice Bars with healthier food and beverage options, in addition to their wellness facilities.

Concierge

Not a fan of the added stress of making booking arrangements during your trip? Resorts with Concierges are the best choice. A resort’s Concierge acts as a personal assistant to the guests. You can have a chat with an agent and consider all your bookings handled. They provide recommendations based on your needs and will handle dinner reservations, arrangement of transportation, tour arrangements, tickets for events and any other activities which will make your stay enjoyable.

Daily Housekeeping

While on a getaway, clean surroundings add to the experience. Great resorts offer daily housekeeping as an amenity for guests. Accommodations which are kept clean, attractive and comfortable allow you to relax and enjoy your stay.

Entertainment

Great resorts offer guests entertainment on some nights, which does not require guests to leave the resort. This is great for mingling with other guests and locals, and in some instances, getting a taste of the country’s culture. Examples of some types of entertainment include live bands, dancing, karaoke, culinary displays and many others.

Kids’ Clubs

Kids’ Clubs are wonderful for adults traveling with young children. While family time is important, adults may still require a little alone time or wish to attend an event or function which is not appropriate for children. Also, children may get bored with the adults and want to play with other children. Family friendly resorts offer Kids’ Clubs where younger guests can play together, watch movies, do arts and crafts and many other activities until their parents or guardians return. Adults can relax knowing that the children are safe and entertained.

Multiple Restaurants

Several on site food outlet options is always a plus when choosing a good resort. For guests who do not wish to dine outside of the resort regularly, multiple restaurants are a wonderful amenity. It eliminates the need to venture outside the resort and gives the guests several different convenient food options. The Crane Resort in Barbados has five restaurants, a café, a juice bar, as well as in-room dining for the guests’ convenience.

The Crane Resort, Barbados, is an excellent resort choice. To book your stay click here or e-mail reservations@thecrane.com.

Group travel is exciting since you get to see new places, experience new things and cultures and meet new people with a group of persons you appreciate. To help with your planning, The Crane has put together a list of 5 tips to consider when organizing your group vacation.

Pick the Right Friends and/or Family

Since travel would cause you to be surrounded by these persons for most of the trip, it is vital to choose companions who you find are easy to get along with. You might be friends with someone for a long time but have never spent extended periods of time with them in the same space. You will all be learning new things about each other, some of which may annoy you or be one of your pet peeves. This is why choosing the correct persons is paramount for this type of travel.

Budget

As soon as you have decided on your companions, it is essential to discuss and decide on a budget. This is not a comfortable subject for many people but if everyone discusses their expectations in advance, it could avoid any conflict later. Always consider that since everyone has different incomes and expenses, what is affordable to one person, might not be for someone else. To accommodate everyone, consider staying close to the range of the lowest budget.

Pick a Location

The location should be chosen based on the discussed budgets and the interests of everyone in the group. Good communication is important for this step, to ensure that everyone is satisfied with the final decision. Consider creating a group chat for conversation in one forum instead of e-mails, which take longer and you can lose track of the direction of the conversation.

Spread the Duties

With budget and location chosen, spread planning duties throughout the group. Consider having persons who plan and persons who execute the plans. Search for deals on airfare and accommodation and begin researching and planning any activities for the group. Communication is also extremely vital in this step. It is important to respect every individual’s needs. After detailed research and everyone is in agreement, begin the group bookings. When everything is organized, create an itinerary so that everyone is on the same page.

Travel!

Enjoy the company of your friends and/or family and enjoy new scenery and experiences. Remember, the only person you can control on your vacation is you. Compromise and good communication will be vital to having an enjoyable experience. You will quickly notice that group travel can create some unbreakable bonds.
