THE PERFECT MATCH
Tennis and Wellness
November 15-22, 2014
Extraordinary tennis is only a part of Curtain Bluff’s extraordinary allure. Its other activities include swimming/snorkeling off our two beautiful white- sand beaches, diving, deep-sea fishing, catching the breeze on a Hobie Cat or Windsurfer, paddleboarding or waterskiing on our protected bay. You can play squash in our glass-back court, play half- court basketball and swim in our pool. Or you can simply relax, swinging in a beach hammock to the sound of the waves or enjoying a soothing treatment at our award-winning spa.
