Antigua’s All-Inclusive Curtain Bluff Resort Is Back, Poised for a Big Winter

By: Alexander Britell - October 24, 2021

The legendary Curtain Bluff resort is back. 

Antigua’s storied all-inclusive resort officially reopened its doors this weekend. 

The resort, set on 20 acres a stunning peninsula on the southern coast of Antigua, has 72 rooms and suites straddled by two beaches and the Caribbean’s leading tennis center. 

A celebrity favorite, Curtain Bluff has long set the standard for the elegant, rarefied all-inclusive experience. 

The reopening comes as the family-owned resort is celebrating its 60th anniversary — and the resort is predicting big things for the winter season.

“I am very happy to report that this winter season, our forward bookings are as good as our best season in 2019,” the resort’s Managing Director, Robert Sherman, told Caribbean Journal.

Sherman said the property had been set to complete a room refurbishment project in the summer of 2020, with that project now nearing culmination.

“The remaining rooms are all receiving upgrades and looking beautiful,” he said. “All 72 beachfront rooms look great.”

The relaunch comes as 100 percent of staff and management at the resort are fully vaccinated, Curtain Bluff told Caribbean Journal. 

“60 years ago, traveling to our region and Curtain Bluff was an adventure, it was rustic,” Sherman said. “Today, Curtain Bluff guests have so many choices, so much competition, the internet has changed everything. Guests’ expectations are much greater today, from culinary, amenities, communication and service. Obviously, the environment and technological enhancements have certainty changed for todays guests. Yet one thing has never wavered over the six decades at Curtain Bluff: the personal touch, private ownership, the genuine caring of both guests and employees. It isn’t a numbers game, it is a place with a soul, that welcomes our guests like family into our home.”

Antigua and Barbuda recently updated its travel requirements; now all visitors 16 and up must show proof of at least one vaccination dose. You can find more on the twin-island destination’s entry protocols here
