Curtain Bluff

St. Johns, Antigua, West Indies

By Roger Cox, Editor

This 25-acre enclave on Antigua's southern coast has a long reputation for caring deeply about wine, amiable service, and tennis. Its 72 rooms and suites trail along a rocky peninsula that separates two bays, each lined with a glorious beach. On paper, the small number of courts—four—seems to suggest a perfunctory interest in tennis. In fact, they've been allotted a prime location, right along the sea, and the staff of local pros choreographs a nonstop series of matches—mostly doubles in the high season—that make the courts an epicenter of social activity. The tennis enthusiasm reaches a zenith during Antigua Tennis Week in May, which began in 1975 as an island-wide professional tournament and has evolved into a pro-am tennis festival, featuring Fred Stolle and a bevy of other Grand Slam greats.
