This is part three of five blogs written by Katie Wilkinson following a luxury fam trip to the Caribbean, which she recently hosted with Siobhan Randles, visiting several of our exquisite Essential Detail hotels.
On arrival at the lavish new reception at Curtain Bluff, Antigua, we were each greeted with a fresh cold towel and a cool rum punch by the warm and friendly owner, Chelle Hulford and Resident Manager, Wendy. After being handed our keys we were escorted to our breathtaking, Beachfront, Junior Suites. Unlike most hotels in the Caribbean, Curtain Bluff has two beaches. One beach for activities and one which houses all the rooms and suites (meaning all the accommodation has a beachfront view - good tip to know when booking your clients here!).
Having arrived on a Tuesday, we were fortunate to be invited to Chelle’s cocktail party at her home on the top of the Bluff House. The views from here are incredible. On a good clear day, you can just about make out the island of Montserrat not too far away. We raised a glass to the gorgeous evening, whilst watching the sunset. It’s easy to see why the Bluff House is a popular location for a wedding drinks reception. There is something very special about the place that makes it so magical and tranquil.
After a wonderful night’s sleep, we met for breakfast at the newly refurbished Tamarind Tree restaurant where we discussed the day’s activities. The hardest decision was which beach to spend the day on and how many of the endless number of water sports, spa treatments and activities we could squeeze into one day! One thing was for certain, we were all in agreement to do as much as we could to get the best out of our day at this beautiful, all-inclusive resort. Before this though we had a guided tour of the property, where Wendy was happy to show off all the new additions to the property and the luxurious rooms and suites.
The key thing to know about Curtain Bluff when selling it to clients is that there is something for everyone. The all-inclusive service includes a whole list of activities such as tennis, yoga and watersports plus a spectacular choice of cuisine and fine wines. Curtain Bluff’s refurbishment means that it’s very much suited to everyone whether you are the modern-day couple, a family of all ages (the new Kids Club is a fantastic new facility for young children) or the older client returning time after time. This fabulous resort really is for everyone.
