Many resorts have extraordinary facilities, while others are small and personable. Some are sophisticated; others are casual and relaxing. Some are luxurious; others offer outstanding value. The rarest find of all is the resort that combines all these qualities.
Flanked by water on both sides, Curtain Bluff sits on a rocky promontory (bluff) that juts into the sea between two beautiful beaches. One is calm, ideal for swimming and watersports; the other beach is washed by ocean surf.
72 rooms and suites, all with staggering seascape views, are spread out along the Surf Beach and up the bluff. There are two restaurants: the open-walled Tamarind Tree serving breakfasts and candle-lit dinners, and the Beach Cafe & Bar, where barefoot-casual lunches are enjoyed one step from the sand and a few feet from the water’s edge.
The resort’s exceptional facilities include a championship tennis center, a fully equipped watersports center (scuba, windsurfing, paddle-boarding, waterskiing, Hobie cats and kayaks), a squash court and fitness center. When it’s time to relax, there’s our tranquil spa overlooking the sea, a beachside swimming pool, a beach bar, and hammocks swaying in the shade of coconut palms.
With the exception of a few above-and-beyond luxuries (Cuban cigars, vintage wines, spa treatments), everything is included in the room rate, making it one of the best values in the Caribbean.]]>
