The Destination
Don't let the palm trees and idyllic aquamarine shores fool you—Barbados may maintain a captivating Caribbean exterior, but its soul is all British. Here, the tropical island is ruled by the three R's: rest, relaxation, and refinement. Locals vacillate between tea and coconut rum as their drink of choice, and you're just as likely to see the turrets of a grand Jacobean mansion casting shadows on the pink sand as you are a cabana. With elegant Bridgeport to the west and the quaint townships at the foot of Chalky Mountain to the east, you can span an entire ocean and more than 400 years of culture on one tiny island.

The Digs
Set on Barbados's famous Crane Beach—named "one of the ten best beaches in the world" by Lifestyles of the Rich and FamousThe Crane Residential Resort is an ideal Escape for guests looking to chart an opulent vacation course. Built in 1887, the historic resort's nine acres have been renovated to earn a spot as "one of the top 50 must-see places in the world" by BBC-TV's Holiday program. Located on the southeast side of the island, the pristine beach is accessible by a staircase and a one-of-a-kind glass-front beach elevator. Equipped with cedar-framed bay windows, a handcrafted king-size four-poster bed, and mahogany furnishings, your room reflects the classic Old World charm that makes Barbados one of the Caribbean's leading tourist destinations. Relax on your garden or ocean view balcony, or catch a quick flick—your room boasts plenty of modern amenities, including Wi-Fi, air conditioning, and a TV with DVD player.

The Diversions
Swoop through the surf and glide beneath the baobab trees. After a dip in the iconic Historic Hotel pool—set at the top of a cliff, framed by a row of classic Doric columns, overlooking the beach—head to the spa for some personal pampering thanks to any of several holistic treatments using the resort's signature organic line. Dinner calls for a taste of Japanese/Thai cuisine at Zen Restaurant. Of course, no visit to the island is complete without a visit to Bridgetown: The shopping on Broad Street is world-famous, and the centuries-old architecture is a veritable history lesson in and of itself.
