Six Things To Love About Curtain Bluff

Six Things To Love About Curtain Bluff

Travel, like life, is full of surprises. And on a recent visit to the legendary Antiguan all-inclusive resort Curtain Bluff, I was surprised twice: First, by the fact that it was WAY more casual and friendly than it’s old-school, country-club rep had led me to believe. And also by the […]

The Caribbean’s Most Luxurious Beach Experience

The Caribbean’s Most Luxurious Beach Experience

There are people for whom just being at the beach is luxury enough. People who don’t mind if there’s no shade, no changing rooms, no beach bar, no chaises upon which to plant their bum. Just give them a sandy strand and a towel and they’re happy. I am NOT […]

Five Caribbean Things To Before You Die

Five Caribbean Things To Before You Die

There’s nothing wrong with just lying on a lounge chair and soaking up the sun, a frosty pina colada in one hand and a trashy novel in the other. But the Caribbean is so much more than just a string of beach-fringed island outposts. And it would be a real […]

The Caribbean’s Priciest Private-Island Resort?

How much is too much to pay for the privilege of having your own private fully staffed Caribbean kingdom? I’ve been fortunate to stay at a few private-island resorts in my time (I recommend Petit St Vincent, Fowl Cay and Palm Island), and while none of them were exactly cheap, […]

Tea Time in Bermuda

Tea Time in Bermuda

I’m not a big tea drinker but I do LOVE the idea of making a meal of it with the age-old ritual of afternoon tea. Gathering a girlfriend or two to share a sumptuous snack in elegant surroundings is definitely something I can get behind. In the formerly British Caribbean […]
