You trust us with your precious vacation days and, in return, we work hard to deserve that trust. We close every year at this time for two months of renovation and refurbishment, primping and polishing, testing and training. When the resort opens again on October 27, it will look better than ever. Improvements include new patio furniture, artwork and soft furnishings. Our beach concierge service (cabanas, lounge chairs and bar service) has been extended to the Surf Beach and we have installed a new kitchen at The Seagrape.

While other resorts measure their spas in square feet and the number of treatment rooms, we measure the Curtain Bluff Spa in aaaaahs. Secluded from the rest of the property, it’s part of the landscape, feet from the lapping waves, and as tranquil as a daydream in July. This fall we are proud to welcome our new spa manager, Katrina Codrington.


Also new this fall: our 4-night Spa Package that includes a $1,000 spa credit, complimentary spa services, a private yoga or Pilates class, food, drink and all the other attractions of our everything-included rates, starting at just $4,390 per room (two people).




It’s no secret that Curtain Bluff has one of the best tennis centers in the islands. A lob-shot from the sea, it has four hard courts lit for night play, four of the best pros in the business, and an exciting program of tennis retreats that mix court action, relaxation, social events, wellness activities, and some of the biggest names in the game. Coming up: Tennis Challenge with Dick Stockton (Nov. 3-10), The Perfect Match with Annabel Croft (Nov. 24-Dec. 1) and Antigua Tennis Week (May 4-11) with Fred Stolle, Owen Davidson and Ross Case.



Our greatest asset is undoubtedly our staff. The same familiar faces are ready to greet you on your next visit and do whatever is necessary to ensure your stay is a success. They are a hard working lot. Candia Richards and Jason Marshall have recently passed their Professional Tennis Registry to become certified tennis instructors. Jensen and Junior have certified as Advanced Dive Masters. Four retirees: Rennie George (tennis instructor, 40 years of service), Evans Browne (server, 21 years), Claudette Johnson (security, 18 years) and Launor-May Browne (housekeeping, 38 years).
