Some resorts offer extraordinary amenities, while others are smaller and have a more personable staff. Some are sophisticated and luxurious, while others give off a relaxing and casual vibe.
A resort that blends all of these qualities is the rarest find of all.
Welcome to Curtain Bluff, which is consistently ranked as one of the greatest and finest resorts in the world. Located in St. John's, Antigua's capital and largest city, the resort gets its name from its placement on a rocky bluff that juts into the sea between two picturesque beaches. One beach is calm and great for watersports and swimming, while the other is washed by ocean surf.
Curtain Bluff has 72 rooms and suites, spread throughout the palm-shaded, white sands of Surf Beach and up the rocky bluff with breathtaking views overlooking the water. The resort features two restaurants: the Tamarind Tree, which serves breakfast and candle-lit meals, and the Beach Café & Bar, where casual lunches can be enjoyed barefoot and just a few feet away from the water's edge. The food, which is included in the room rate and has drawn praise from culinary magazines, has amazing variety and imagination.
Among the resort's remarkable amenities are a championship tennis center, a squash court, a fitness club and a water sports facility that offers scuba, deep-sea fishing, windsurfing and more. When its time to relax, there is a tranquil spa that overlooks the sea, a beach-side swimming pool, a beach bar, and hammocks swinging in the shadow of coconut palms.
Curtain Bluff is renowned for its wonderful setting, impeccable service, its warm and friendly staff, and the fact that it has such a fantastic variety of amenities. That makes it among the best value resorts in all the Caribbean.
