Hidden Gem no. 3: Curtain Bluff in Antigua

Sit in the lap of luxury at Antigua's Curtain Bluff Resort.  The setting is pure magic with private pools overlooking the ocean and the finest of simple pleasures. Depending on the number of guests attending, you may even opt to rent out the entire resort!
