Curtain Bluff – Luxury Antigua Getaway Deal

If you’re as sick of winter as I am, this deal couldn’t come at a better time. Book by March 15 and you can save up to 30% on a spring fling to the luxurious Curtain Bluff – a family resort in Antigua  – for stays between April 3-14.  There’s no minimum night stay requirement and the deal is  the equivalent of paying shoulder season rates during the popular high season. Every room at the 5 star all-inclusive resort has an ocean view. And the property takes their all-inclusive motto seriously with activities like deep sea fishing, and even your in-room mini-bar, included in the rate. In addition you can scuba dive, snorkel, sail, water-ski, kayak, do yoga, pilates and tennis without every reaching for your wallet. Twenty landscaped acres on the south coast of Antigua, two sandy beaches and 72 beachfront cottages await. Rates for the April deal start at $775 per night based on double occupancy.
