Luxury Travel Advisor recently sat down with Toya Turner, reservations revenue manager for Curtain Bluff, and learned that the resort will be bumping its commission to 15 percent in 2017 after the completion of a $13 million renovation.
In May, the resort will launch a six-month, $13 million renovation of its common spaces and unveil a new look. Once complete, Turner told Luxury Travel Advisor the resort will be increasing its commission to advisors. In fact, she says the resort is considering offering higher than a 15 percent commission, depending on the volume of booking.
The most significant refurbishment of its common spaces since opening, the project will include a complete overhaul of the resort entrance, dining spaces, bar, lounge and reception area.
The resort will close on May 6, 2017, to kick off the renovation and will reopen for the 2017-2018 season on October 28, 2017.
Curtain Bluff also recently unveiled upgrades to its four signature “Hulford Collection” suites. Each now has a private infinity-edge plunge pool on the terrace overlooking the sea. In addition, the Terrace Suite underwent a complete renovation and redesign, including new soft goods and luxury spa bathroom. The Hulford Collection also includes the Grace and Morris Bay suites and the Cliff Suite.
Also new at Curtain Bluff is the resort’s “Beach Concierge,” available to cater to guests every need while beaching it for the day. This includes setting up activities and watersports, placing drink orders and reserving a beach chair or hammock for the day.
