Overview

The resort closed on May 6, 2017 for a renovation and plans to re-open for the 2017-2018 season on October 28, 2017.
Flanked by water on both sides, Curtain Bluff sits on a rocky promontory that juts into the sea between two beautiful beaches. One is calm, ideal for swimming and watersports; the other beach is washed by ocean surf. 72 rooms and suites, all with staggering seascape views, are spread out along the Surf Beach and up the bluff. There are two restaurants: the open-walled Tamarind Tree serving breakfasts and candle-lit dinners, and The Sea Grape restaurant where barefoot casual lunches and romantic dinners are enjoyed one step from the sand and a few feet from the water’s edge.

The resort's exceptional facilities include a championship tennis center, a fully equipped watersports center (scuba, windsurfing, paddle-boarding, waterskiing, Hobie Cats and kayaks), a squash court, and fitness center. When it's time to relax, there's a tranquil spa overlooking the sea, a beachside swimming pool, a beach bar, and hammocks swaying in the shade of coconut palms.

Please Note: This hotel property may offer both all-inclusive and room-only rates. Please read the rate description information carefully and contact us if you have any questions about what’s included in the room rate.

Meeting Space
The hotel can accommodate group bookings from 10 to 72 rooms (note: for bookings over 50 rooms, an "All-resort Buyout" is the most economical option). The 20-foot by 20-foot meeting space can seat up to 26 people in air-conditioned comfort. For groups of between 20 and 150 people, the hotel can arrange private functions such as sunset cocktail parties at The Bluff House, beach dinners at the Beach Cafe and sailing excursions around the island.
Fine Dining On Site
Curtain Bluff’s award-winning culinary team is led by French-born Executive Chef, Christophe Blatz. Prior to working at Curtain Bluff, Christophe trained under such notable chefs as Alain Ducasse and cooked in some of the finest Michelin star-rated kitchens in France, including Les Ambassadeurs Restaurant in the Hotel du Crillon in Paris.
Fitness Center

Child Programs
The CEEBEE KIDS CLUB.
Pool Outdoor

Spa Facility
The tranquil and intimate 5,000-square-foot spa sits apart from the rest of the resort just feet from the sea. All four treatment rooms have wide-open views over the water to distant Montserrat, Cades Reef, St. Kitts, Nevis and Redonda. Before their treatments, guests sit outside sipping tea brewed from herbs fresh picked from the spa's own garden. Afterwards, they relax on the open verandah, sitting in the Jacuzzi on the cliff edge and snacking on Spa Bites like steamed asparagus, fruit and vegetable kebabs.
Tennis Courts On Site
Tennis courts, rackets, and balls. Squash court, rackets, and balls.
Beach
All rooms run along the back of Surf Beach, an undulating stretch of golden sand shaded by palms. The less used of the two beaches, it’s ideal for quiet contemplation, playing in the surf, and swinging in a hammock to the rhythm of the waves. On the other side of the bluff, the softly curving Bay Beach is the hub of daytime activity (and inactivity). The jetty at one end is the departure point for dive trips, waterskiing, and rides on the Super Mable (an inflatable raft that is towed behind a boat). Sheltered by Cades Reef (the site for twice-daily snorkeling trips), the water is calm and clear, perfect for swimming, sailing a Hobie and kayaking.
Ecological Tourism
Adventure Antigua offers three award-winning, full-day, water-based excursions: "Eli's Original Eco Tour" and the "Xtreme Circumnav" (on specially-designed power boats); and the "Classic Sailing Tour" on a traditional wooden sloop. All tours have themes of history and ecology; a 5 star rating on Trip Advisor and include snorkeling equipment, lunch and drinks.
Fishing - Ocean
Deep sea fishing.
Golf Driving Range
Putting green and equipment.
Sailing
Cruises aboard the Sentio, a 50-foot sailing ketch.
Scuba Diving
