Flanked by water, Curtain Bluff sits on a rocky bluff jutting over the sea. Everything from the ribbon sun loungers to the concertina blinds exudes a 1960s-style glamour, but easy-to-come-by hammocks, a splurge-worthy spa, beach bar and abundant rum drinks — for an all-inclusive price — make it easy to unwind here, too.
Bed & Bath
Updated annually, the 72 rooms and suites are decorated in an ocean-blue and sand palette that mirrors the colors of the beach. Deluxe Rooms are located right on Surf Beach while Bluff Rooms offer room to spread out at 851-square feet. Both include private terraces, as well as refrigerators, air conditioning and oversized soaking tubs.
There are two private beaches, one for swimming and one for water sports, and there’s a freeform saltwater pool with chaise longues on which to unplug and unwind. For a similar degree of repose, the resort’s hilltop spa offers such sea-inspired treatments as its signature caviar and pearl facial, which is applied against an uninterrupted backdrop of Montserrat and the ocean. When the sun goes down, the resort comes to life. Guests don their finest loungewear and head for the Tamarind Tree restaurant for executive chef Christophe Blatz’s take on the classic chateaubriand with bearnaise sauce and a glass of Côtes du Rhone in the plantation-style dining room, which has whirring ceiling fans and a toe-tapping live band.
How to Get There
My husband and I had the pleasure of taking two of our grown granddaughters with us to Curtain Bluff for four nights. Service was amazing, food was wonderful ( all- inclusive ), Spa was fabulous. It is a Small boutique resort . There are two beaches with plenty of chairs, daybeds, or hammocks. It was very quiet when we were there, even though there was about one hundred guests when we were there. Dinners were fun with entertainment and dancing. Seth set us up with a crewed sailboat one afternoon and it was perfect!
We stayed here for a week in December and absolutely loved it and would give it 6 stars if we could. We felt it was the epitome of an idyllic Caribbean location and for us it’s 2 beaches, are the jewels in its crown. Our room faced it’s “rough beach”, which looked glorious, fringed with palm trees and we could hear the sound of waves on the beach at night, however on leaving the room, we were just a short walk from the 2nd beach, just the other side of the “Bluff” where we spent our days. The sea here was warm and very calm throughout our stay and I have never spent so much time in the sea. The water was clear and beautiful for swimming. My husband snorkelled from the beach also went out regularly with the resorts own boat to the reef which was great. Beach facilities were excellent, plenty of shade, comfortable beds, hammocks,space. Lunch at the beach was absolutely delicious, plenty of choice, all fresh. We were very much the “newbies” amoungst it’s guests as unsurprisingly the majority seemed to be on return visits. We were nevertheless given a very warm welcome and look forward to our return.
Nothing beats a direct flight from a winter vortex to paradise. Our accommodations were excellent with a suite direct beachfront with the sounds of ocean waves lulling us to sleep. The staff at Curtain Bluff is unprecedented. Courteous, professional and extremely friendly. No wonder many have been there for many years. Spent much time on the beach and in the water with a huge amount of time dedicated to sailing their new and fast Hobie Cats. A great spontaneous escape. We look Ford to our next trip to Curtain Bluff.
Our third visit and our first since the hotel was refurbished. The staff are still totally welcoming and the Owner, Chelle, still makes sure that every single Guest feels special. The food, under a new chef is simply amazing. Gone are the days when Caribbean food was entirely missable.
As part of the make-over the Hotel gardens have been improved and it makes a huge and positive difference. If you visit, your bank balance will take a hit but you won't care - really !
Antigua has “almost service”
1. Airport VIP service is minimal: you carry your own bag!
2. Tired on long drive to hotel. One hour! And additional time because driver Morris has to stop at his house first before going to hotel. See pic !
3. Steps to get to pool. Not accessible.
4. No service at pool!
5. Lunch buffet very cheap
People very nice. Just a few quirks as above. No TV killed me!!!
