The rooms located high on the bluff are the most picturesque.

What you need to know about the hotel

Phenomenal facilities and the ease of an all-inclusive make Curtain Bluff a perennial tropical favorite

  • The Morris Bay and Grace Bay Suites come with private plunge pools and give you 2,000 square feet to spread out and enjoy
  • Tennis lovers rejoice: The Tennis Center has four championship hard courts, a pro shop and three resident pros
  • Tour the Curtain Bluff wine cellar’s 25,000+ bottles and then join the sommelier in the cellar’s dedicated tasting room

With only 72 beachfront rooms (grab one high on the bluff for the best views), Curtain Bluff remains small enough to deliver fabulous service. Plus, you won’t find yourself in a long line for the resort’s two restaurants, though the award-winning culinary team churns out food so good you probably wouldn’t mind if you did.

Where the resort really shines, though, is in its recreational offerings: serious tennis, squash and a fully equipped water sports center that supplies gear for diving, deep-sea fishing, windsurfing, paddle-boarding, waterskiing and kayaking. If you want to keep things a little tamer, soak up some rays at the beachside pool or book a treatment at the 5,000-square-foot waterfront spa.

Where is it and what's nearby

This Antiguan gem is perched on a bluff overlooking the sea

  • A zip line canopy tour—perfectly safe for even young kids—will have you soaring over the rainforest on 21 different lines
  • Explore Antigua’s natural side with an eco-tour filled with kayaking, snorkeling, boating, hiking and snorkeling with rays
  • History buffs should check out Nelson’s Dockyard, an old British naval base commanded by Horatio Nelson, and Shirley Heights, a former fortress

Curtain Bluff by the numbers is pretty impressive: 15 acres, 6,000 palm trees, 70 spruces and two beaches—one calm for swimming and water sports and the other ideal for surfing. With so much to do at the resort, most people don’t get out and explore Antigua, which is a shame. This West Indies island has everything from extreme sports to naval history to artifact-filled museums. Like most Caribbean islands, however, the water and all of its possibilities is the main draw. If you can tear yourself away, Antigua’s crystal clear waters have plenty of ways to keep you busy.

How to enjoy Antigua

With low humidity, year round sunshine and highs in the mid-eighties, Antigua has quite perfect weather. Add in glorious beaches and plentiful opportunities for play and you have what this island is made of

  • Take a helicopter tour of nearby Montserrat and view the steam clouds and occasional bursts of volcanic activity that put half of this island out of bounds
  • Charter a yacht to find secluded coves for snorkeling or sign the kids up for sailing lessons and fun messing about on the water
  • Unwind and relax in an indulgent spa with sugar cane and botanical oil treatments, classic pedicures and hot stone massages

Whether you are staying on an exclusive private island off the coast of Antigua or nestled into beachside luxury with a private plunge pool, Antigua has an indulgent feel. Your day may be spent at your own pace, lulled gently by the breeze in your beachside hammock, or sport fishing for Marlin and ziplining through the interior’s rainforest.

The island’s genteel English heritage can be seen everywhere from the national sport, cricket, to the beautifully preserved Georgian harbor, Nelson’s Dockyard, (named after the English 18th Century sailor, Vice Admiral Horatio Lord Nelson). A name to learn is Sir Viv Richards. Former captain of the West Indies cricket team and regular defeater of the English, the man is a local legend.
