As if you needed any more reason to visit Curtain Bluff – one of Antigua’s most treasured institutions – we’ve found one. After an extensive six-month refurbishment, the hotel reopens to guests in October. The $13-million refresh has transformed the public spaces, and follows last year’s fabulous upgrades to their top suites, the beach, watersports and a new children’s facility. The spacious new-look lobby means guests will discover the refurbishment the moment they arrive, and with beautiful improvements to the lounge, library, cocktail terrace and Tamarind Tree Restaurant too, we’re sure your next visit to Curtain Bluff will be one of superb style and luxury.
After an extensive three-tier refurbishment programme, the outstanding Blue Waters Resort & Spa reopens to guests this month. There have been upgrades across the property, from the lobby to the rooms and suites. A key focus of the improvements has been modernising the resort, and additions such as new lighting and sound systems add to the contemporary ambience. Renovations and additions combine with the new ‘secret garden’ at the Kids' Club to make for a fun-filled hideaway for younger visitors. The enhanced resort still features 17 acres of lush tropical gardens, sparkling pools and an idyllic beachfront too.
Improvements, enhancements and brand new luxury; this is one of the most exciting times to visit Antigua. Give our Travel Specialists a call to start creating your bespoke itinerary today.
