urtain Bluff is a bit of a legend in
international hotel circles. Dating back to
the late 1950’s its phenomenal potential
was noted on an aerial reconnaissance over
southern Antigua by American pilot, Howard
Hulford, who spotted a spectacular beach-flanked
bluff. He liked it somuchhe built his ownprivate
home here as well as an exclusive hotel with just
enoughaccommodation forhis friends.
Sadly, the familiar figureof the cigar-smokinghost

Chelle. Indeed, over the decades this clubby
