Enter Stylist's #WinterSun Instagram competition and win a holiday to Barbados


Can't resist a sun-soaked Instagram snap? Then this competition is for you!

With summer a distant memory as the darker nights draw in, Stylist is offering one lucky winner the chance to escape to a warmer climate with a seven-night stay at the luxurious Crane Resort in Barbados.

Set on a clifftop overlooking the powder-pink sands of Crane Beach – voted one of the world’s best beaches – The Crane Resort blends old-world charm and incredible natural beauty with a romantic sense of seclusion.  As well as a beautiful beach and lagoon-style pools, the 40-acre property offers five restaurants (including the Zagat-rated fine dining Zen Restaurant and charming D’Onofrios Trattoria), a lively jazz bar, a relaxing spa, duty free shopping and a dedicated concierge team to assist in arranging a host of activities and excursions.

The winner and guest will stay in a stunning colonial-style suite and enjoy a complimentary daily breakfast-with-a-view at the hotel’s award-winning L’Azure Restaurant, which overlooks a magnificent panorama of the ruggedly picturesque Atlantic shore.

With year-round perfect weather for snorkelling with turtles, a spot of tennis or simply relaxing on a lounger with cocktail in hand, this tropical retreat is sure to cure the winter blues.

To be in with a chance of winning, all you have to do is upload a photo that represents ‘winter sun’ in whichever way you think best. Follow and tag @cranebarbados, @visitbarbados and @stylistmagazine in the photo (not just the caption) and use the hashtag #WinterSun – the theme of this month’s Stylist Instagram competition.
