Established in 1957 in a location hand-picked by renowned hotelier and owner, the late Howard Hulford, Curtain Bluff has earned a reputation as one of the area's finest all inclusive properties.
The 72 guest rooms, Deluxe, Junior Suites, Suites and Executive Suites offer all the qualities of island living combined with every essential amenity and service. Running along the Atlantic 'surf' beach and up the rocky bluff, all have gaze-all-day views, and either open directly on to the sand or are just a few steps from it. Large, floor-to-ceiling windows and verandas or ground-floor terraces look out over the beach and across the sea to a lush-green headland. At night, the scene is a canopy of stars
Inside, the rooms are decorated in simple, elegant tropical style, and are replete with all the modern luxuries - from air-conditioning and over-sized Jacuzzi baths to wood-panelled ceilings, refrigerators and high-speed internet access.
