Upon the resort’s reopening (on October 26) following a seasonal closure, all 12 of the Bluff Suites will be completely refreshed with new interiors, natural stone tiling, and updated bathrooms and furnishings. This is a continuation of Curtain Bluff’s ongoing plan where in the next 24 months every room will be brand new. 

Curtain Bluff is located on 20 landscaped acres on the south coast of Antigua and is surrounded by two sandy beaches. Its fully inclusive rates include gourmet meals, top-shelf bar drinks and water sports, such as scuba diving (for certified divers only), snorkeling, water skiing and more. Curtain Bluff has 72 beachfront accommodations, all with ocean views.

In September, Luxury Travel Advisor noted that Curtain Bluff is just as accommodating for couples as it is families. In addition to the new suites, the beachfront Seagrape restaurant has a new menu by chef Rodrick Beazer that blends Italian and Argentinian fare.
