Overview

Since 1962, Curtain Bluff has welcomed guests to this iconic property positioned between two beautiful bays and Antigua's' only rainforest.
 

This all inclusive property is set in fifteen acres of beach and gardens that create spectacular vistas for the 72 rooms and suites scattered up the bluff, where cooling sea breezes render air conditioning unnecessary even though it is available.

The roomy accommodations are ideal for couples and families, and both children and adults will find plenty to keep them amused here.  Four floodlit tennis courts and three resident pros will help improve your own game, or there's squash, yoga, swimming in the 75 foot pool, croquet and a full range of motorized and non-motorized water sports. Guests can enjoy the hotel's many activities from swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, windsurfing, water-skiing and scuba diving to tennis, squash, stand up paddleboard, croquet, yoga, pilates, water aerobics and working out in the gym. The hotel's two beaches invite rest and relaxation. Lounge near the swimming pool and the bar area, with its chaises lounges and thatched umbrellas, and enjoy beach concierge service from the beach bar. 

Renew your energy at either of the two restaurants. The Tamarind restaurant our signature dining option. serves full breakfast and gourmet dinner daily and this is accompanied with live entertainment from a different band every night. If you are looking for a more relaxing beach dining experience the Seagrape is an excellent choice where a buffet / a' la Carte lunch is served daily and once a week are treated to a Caribbean luncheon (complete with steel band) and five nights a week is transformed into an intimate Italian fare restaurant. For wine connoisseurs you can sample wines from our prodigious wine cellar with around 450 different vintages to choose from!

All are in impeccable condition and lit for night play. Our three resident pros -- Rennie, Nigel and Dillo -- are trained in the U.S. to teach aptitudes right up to 5.5 (nearly a pro) and ready at 7:00 AM to take a guest's challenge, pair guests together for a game, or work on that backhand. Private lessons cost $US 70 per hour. Their enthusiasm and gentle manner is one of the reasons that many of our guests call our tennis program the best in the region.Making full use of this extraordinary facility, Curtain Bluff hosts tennis- oriented events throughout the year, including three multi-day camps - the Tennis Challenge, Fantasy Tennis Camp, and Antigua Tennis Week - aimed at all aptitudes from enthusiastic beginner to seasoned pro. Run by celebrities of the game, these camps are the perfect blend of on-court action (clinics, tournaments, etc.), social gatherings, and free time to enjoy the resort's world-class facilities and the attractions of Antigua.

DINING

Tamarind Restaurant

Open-walled in the traditional plantation style, our 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 live 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:
Breakfasts are casual. For dinner, gentlemen must wear slacks ( no jeans) and a collared shirt and dress shoes. Ladies: denim shorts are not permitted

Seagrape Restaurant

Our 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 water's edge.

At lunchtime, guests filter in from the beach wearing T-shirts and beach cover-ups to enjoy our famous lunch buffets (including the weekly beach-barbeque lunch accompanied by a live steel-drum band).

At night, open 3 to 5 times per week (based on time of the season), the Sea Grape becomes a second dinner venue. Limited to just 50 guests per night, it serves delicious Mediterranean / Antiguan influenced cuisine as tiki torches flicker on the sand and the sea is streaked by moonlight.

Dress Code:
Lunches are casual, swimsuit cover-ups are recommended. For dinner, gentlemen may wear dress shorts or smart pants and a collared shirt and dress shoes. Ladies: denim shorts are not permitted
