Privately-owned for over 50 years, Curtain Bluff has maintained its initial roots and continues to appeal to discerning travellers who are seeking a world-class Caribbean destination. Luxurious accommodation and excellent cuisine is married with quality service and a fabulous ocean-side spa.
Completely refurbished deluxe rooms and junior suites ooze with class and elegance, and the lavish Grace Bay & Morris Bay suites are considered the best and most sumptuous on the island, and arguably in the Caribbean. A resort built for the family, as the children can learn to sail, swim or partake in any of the other water sports on offer, while mum and dad can relax on the beach or treat themselves at the excellent spa.
Boasting 3 tennis tournaments every year, featuring the likes of Fred Stolle, Ross Case and Davis Cup champion Dick Stockton, as well as the world-famous Antigua Sailing Week. Taking place at the end of April, the sailing week was created by the hotel’s late owner Howard Hulford. Earlier in the month during the Antigua Classic Regatta, over 100 beautifully historic yachts sail past the hotel and the bluff.
A charitable resort as well, the hotel’s Old Road Fund helps to raise money for the local community and for teen camps in the US, as well as clothes, equipment and scholarships. Housed below Curtain Bluff lies one of the finest and extensive wine cellars in the Caribbean – over 25,000 bottles!
On the Beach
Deluxe Room – Situated right on Surf Beach, the Deluxe Rooms offers terrific value, with rooms both on the sand with a terrace, or on the floor above with balconies offering great views out over the surf. A short walk from the main restaurant and bar, these rooms are decorated in bold colours and dark wood furnishings, simple and elegant.
Junior Suite – Spread amongst ‘villa’ style buildings right on the beach, they have sunken living rooms separate from spacious bedrooms. Bathrooms feature big tubs and large walk-in showers. Blues and greens adorn these rooms, with glass doors leading out onto your own terrace or balcony space overlooking the beach and the sea beyond.
Grace Morris Bay Suites – The most luxurious in the resort, these two spacious and opulent suites are furnished with colonial furniture and rich fabrics and linens. The bedroom and separate living rooms open onto a large balcony with your own private Jacuzzi and sun chairs. There is a blue-marble bathroom (en-suite of course) and these rooms can even be linked to a junior suite to create the perfect space for a family wanting something a little bit special – or you can even book the whole floor (4 bedrooms) for larger groups.
On the Bluff
Executive Deluxe Room (Bluff Room) – These rooms are set into the edge of the bluff and offer fantastic views out over the bay. They share a similar decor and bedroom/bathroom arrangement as the Executive One-Bedroom Suites, and can even be combined to create a great place for two couples or a family split amongst three levels with a share living room and separate bathrooms.
Terrace Room – A unique offering and a popular choice for honeymooners because of its location at the very tip of the bluff. The Terrace room has incredible views out over the beach and the bay, and the insides are adorned with whitewashed walls, blue fabrics and specially-made furnishings. The oversized terrace benefits from a private Jacuzzi and is perfect for al-fresco dining and lazy afternoons with your loved one.
Executive One-bedroom Suite (Bluff Suite; Cliff Suite from 2014) – There are 6 one- and two-bedroom Executive Suites that offer a private and split-level sanctuary with light and spacious interiors. Natural woods and bright colours make them a thoroughly pleasant place to enjoy sleepy mornings in bed, or enjoying the sun on the garden patio. Upstairs a great area is set aside for dining, with views to die for overlooking the bay.
