Travel Agent sat down Tuesday afternoon with Rob Sherman, managing director of Curtain Bluff in Antigua, and learned that the recently upgraded, all-inclusive resort is now officially offering 15 percent commission to agents.
Travel Agent first brought you news of a $13 million renovation of the resort, along with the commission spike back, in 2016. Curtain Bluff, which was previously offering a 10 percent commission, is now offering 15 percent, beginning with bookings for October 28, when the hotel reopens following the renovations.
The most significant refurbishment of its common spaces since the hotel opened, the project includes a complete overhaul of the resort entrance, dining spaces, bar, lounge and reception area.
Curtain Bluff’s rooms and suites are being refurnished with bright new fabrics, furnishings and furniture that echo the colors of nature that fill the windows of every room. The Curtain Bluff beach experience is being upgraded as well, with new chaise lounges and sand chairs providing a more sleek look and a “Beach Concierge,” available to cater to guests. This includes setting up activities and water sports, placing drink orders and scouting out the ideal beach chair or hammock for the day.
The property’s signature Tamarind Tree Restaurant will offer a completely redefined dining experience upon reopening. Also undergoing a refresh is the resort’s meeting area. A solid fit for groups of 20 to 60 people and complete with all necessary presentation equipment, the meeting space provides a great setting for weddings, private dinners, cocktail parties and other events.
Curtain Bluff also recently unveiled upgrades to its four signature “Hulford Collection” suites, which are named after the resort’s owners and founders. Each now features a private infinity-edge plunge pool on the terrace overlooking the sea. In addition, the Terrace Suite underwent a complete renovation and redesign including new soft goods and a luxury spa bathroom. The Hulford Collection also includes the Grace and Morris Bay Suites and Cliff Suite.
Fall Special Package
Clients can now take advantage of the resort’s Fall Special package, which is available from Oct. 28 to December 16. Guests staying in a Bluff Room or higher category get the seventh night free when staying for six nights with all meals, motorized water sports and a complimentary VIP airport meet-and-greet included.
