Curtain Bluff Resort
Old Road
Antigua, West Indies

Distance from hotel to capital of St. John's, 30 minutes. Distance from hotel to V.C. Bird International Airport (ANU), 30 minutes.  

Many resorts have extraordinary facilities, while others are small and personable. Some are sophisticated; others are casual and relaxing. Some are luxurious; others offer outstanding value. The rarest find of all is the resort that combines all these qualities.  

Flanked by water on both sides, Curtain Bluff sits on a rocky promontory (bluff) 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 Beach Cafe & Bar, where barefoot-casual lunches 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 our tranquil spa overlooking the sea, a beachside swimming pool, a beach bar, and hammocks swaying in the shade of coconut palms.  

With the exception of a few above-and-beyond luxuries (Cuban cigars, vintage wines, spa treatments), everything is included in the room rate, making it one of the best values in the Caribbean.

Food and Beverage Outlets (back to top)

The Seagrape, The other restaurant sits at the far end of the Bay Beach, open to the sea breezes, right on the sand, and just feet from the waters edge. At lunchtime, guests filter in from the beach wearing T-shirts and beach cover-ups to enjoy the famous lunch buffets (including the weekly beach- barbeque lunch accompanied by a live steel-drum band). At night, open 4 or 5 times per week (based on time of the season), the Seagrape becomes a second dinner venue. Limited to just 40 guests per night, it serves delicious Italian/Antiguan influenced cuisine as tiki torches flicker on the sand and the sea is streaked by moonlight. Dress Code: Smart shorts and collared shirts for evenings for gentlemen. For ladies, denim shorts are not permitted.  

The Tamarind Tree, Open-walled in the traditional plantation style, the main restaurant looks out over a terrace canopied by the spreading limbs of a majestic tamarind tree. At breakfast the restaurant is shaded from the bright morning sun and cooled by a breeze from the sea, just visible through the palms. The menu includes favorites like banana pancakes, French toast and Eggs Benedict, plus traditional island dishes, fresh juices and fruit. All breads, croissants and pastries are freshly baked by our accomplished pastry chef. At dinner the tables are flecked with candlelight and the terrace sparkles with decorative lights. Changing every night, the five-course menu always includes salads, locally caught fish, outstanding meats, healthy options and so many desserts they have their own menu. Each evening there is a different band and, as diners filter out of the restaurant to sit at the terrace tables, the tempo builds and couples dance in the moonlight.  

• Dress Code: days are casual, and at dinner, gentlemen wear slacks(no Jeans) and a collared shirt with dress shoes, ladies, denim shorts are not permitted.  

The Cellar, The most extensive wine cellar in the Caribbean. Like the other alcoholic beverages, the excellent house wines are included in the room rate. But for those aficionados looking for a truly special wine, Curtain Bluff keeps one of the finest cellars in the Caribbean, stocked with over 400 carefully selected wines from 10 countries, all priced between $50.00 USD and $2,000.00 USD. George Williams has trained in France and the California wine country. He now oversees the purchasing, storage and serving of the extensive selection of wines from around the world. Ask him for a tour of the cellar or ask about joining one of Georges wine tastings held in the cellars tasting room on Friday afternoons.
