Curtain Bluff, one of the Caribbean's favorite luxury all-inclusive beach resorts and a Condé Nast reader's choice pick for the past three years, is offering honeymoon packages through May 14, 2011.

Three all-inclusive vacation packages for summer

Three all-inclusive vacation packages for summer Apr 26th, 2010 at 2:00PM: The best part of all-inclusive trips is that the thinking is taken out of the equation. Want a second drink? Hell, a second entrée? Go for it! There's no reason not to ... because the bill is already paid. I had my first brush with the all-inclusive concept last summer, and I'm sold on it, especially since I get impatient while waiting for the bill (when the meal's over, I just want to get...

Take a swing at Antigua Tennis Week

Take a swing at Antigua Tennis Week Apr 8th, 2010 at 12:00PM: For the fourth year in a row, Curtain Bluff will be home to Antigua Tennis Week. For seven days, you can enjoy a tennis-filled getaway at this fantastic all-inclusive resort. The package includes stroke and strategy clinics with the pros, free court time on Curtain Bluff's four courts (including balls and rackets) and the chance to participate in Pro-Am tournaments, exhibitions and lessons. Aside...

Only a few weeks left on Curtain Bluff Power of '10 package

Only a few weeks left on Curtain Bluff Power of '10 package Mar 4th, 2010 at 3:00PM: There's only a month left on Curtain Bluff's "Power of '10" deal, and if you're feeling worn down by the fierce winter cold, here's your chance to win some relief. So, stay at this Antigua resort in the next few weeks, and you'll be able to add some interesting activities to the SCUBA diving, dep-sea fishing and reef snorkeling that are already available. You'll be able to take a cooking class...

Daily Pampering: The Curtain Bluff Babymoon

Daily Pampering: The Curtain Bluff Babymoon Feb 3rd, 2010 at 4:00PM: Pregnancy is already challenging enough, especially if you're a first-timer. Moms- and dads-to-be alike need a break from the doctor's appointments, planning and anxiety that come with bringing a new life into the world. So, when you measure the future in centimeters (you'll get it if you're expecting) instead of miles, it's hard to imagine getting on a plane, regardless of how attractive the...

Four reasons why your babymoon matters five months later

Four reasons why your babymoon matters five months later Nov 19th, 2009 at 8:00AM: Babymoons are hot. Every major resort is looking for a way to get in on the action ... and why not? Moms-to-be are carrying all that extra weight, coping with the effects on their bodies and dream of a place where they can be pampered for a little while. Pregnancy massages take up the space between fantastic meals, and mom finds a bit of bliss. The guys don't lose with this arrangement either....

Tips for tippers: it isn't what you expect

Tips for tippers: it isn't what you expect Nov 18th, 2009 at 8:00AM: Tipping's a tough nut to crack. Should you tip a housekeeper? Back in the day, the rule was leaving some cash only if your stay was 30 days or longer. Since then, however, it seems to have changed. And, what's appropriate for a valet? Bellman? Skycap? Travel means tipping, and there are plenty of points at which you can expect to do this. If you go to the same hotel or use the same car service...

Fifth free night at Antigua resort

Fifth free night at Antigua resort Oct 2nd, 2009 at 1:00PM: January is a great time to head down to the Caribbean. The weather is just about at its coldest and dreariest. The days are short and cloudy. Disappearing for four nights of sunshine, warmth and bliss is pretty hard to turn down. Well, committing to four will get you five at Curtain Bluff in Antigua early next year. Book at least a junior suite for four nights between January 3 and 23 next year,...

Go to Antigua with Curtain Bluff's "Power of 10" package

Go to Antigua with Curtain Bluff's Aug 30th, 2009 at 8:00AM: I know we're still sweating the summer, and January seems like a lifetime away. But, think back seven or eight months. Remember how cold it was. It's hard to make the connection, but it really was that cold out, and you lived it. It's going to happen again before you know it. So, now is probably the time to book a retreat from the crushing cold. Curtain Bluff's new package, "The Power of 10," is...

Inside Curtain Bluff: how "all-inclusive" makes life easier

Inside Curtain Bluff: how Jul 23rd, 2009 at 2:00PM: When I spoke with Curtain Bluff Managing Director Rob Sherman, he cringed as he uttered the words "all-inclusive." I think I know why. It sounds gimmicky and almost implies "discount." Neither concept fits his resort. There are no gimmicks, just incredible, top-shelf service from a staff that's worked the property for an average of 26 years. And, obviously, "discount" is in short supply at a...

Inside Curtain Bluff: yes, there are hotdogs

Inside Curtain Bluff: yes, there are hotdogs Jul 22nd, 2009 at 2:00PM: I can only imagine how Curtain Bluff Managing Director Rob Sherman is going to react when he stumbles upon this story focused solely on the hotdogs served at his incredibly upscale resort. Regular readers know the drill, though. If there's a hotdog somewhere in the world, I need to try it. Curtain Bluff's contribution will now stand alongside those from Reykjavik, Stockholm, East Anglia and...

Inside Curtain Bluff: 72 places to call home

Inside Curtain Bluff: 72 places to call home Jul 21st, 2009 at 2:00PM: Curtain Bluff isn't the only "all-inclusive" resort on Antigua – you have countless choices. What differentiates this resort from the many, though, is the collection of small touches that blend decadence and home-style comfort seamlessly. Where else would the managing director interrupt an interview with, "Hold on, I need to go make fun of somebody [obviously a guest]?" This same executive's...

Inside Curtain Bluff: a tale of two beaches

Inside Curtain Bluff: a tale of two beaches Jul 20th, 2009 at 11:00AM: There are two beaches at Curtain Bluff, and it's pretty clear that one's for looking and the other's for playing. The former is what you see from the guestrooms, with sometimes large waves brutalizing the shore before receding and feeding those that follow. The latter is nothing short of serene, with gentle ripples quietly lapping the sand. The "swimming" beach begins next to the tennis courts...

Five ways to enjoy Antigua

Five ways to enjoy Antigua Jul 9th, 2009 at 8:00AM: When you travel to an upscale resort, it's pretty hard to leave the property. It's not like you're held captive, of course. I had no problem actually leaving Curtain Bluff physically, but it was hard to get motivated enough to leave. This is where the accusations of snobbery enter the picture. The elite prefer to stay within the sheltered walls of the property. For some, this is true, though the...

Holiday Wish List: Curtain Bluff, Antigua

Holiday Wish List:  Curtain Bluff, Antigua May 10th, 2006 at 4:16PM: While I'm from the Caribbean, I lived the majority of my life in the United States; it's only recently that I've returned to reside in Trinidad.  Because we've come to Trinidad as a result of my husband's job, there's no telling how long we'll be here (we could be transferred at a moment's notice), so one of my goals is to see a few more of the islands of the Caribbean before we're required...
