Crane Residential Resort
Built in 1887, the Crane was the first resort hotel on Barbados. In the 1970's Oliver Messel revamped the main building; a more recent redo has taken the Crane into prime time, adding three buildings with sprawling mahogany suites and private plunge pools. Another renovation is slated for 2011.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
