Tom, a blogger for Gadling and Luxist, is a hot dog lover. Whenever we go on a vacation he tries the hot dog of that particular locale. Curtain Bluff in Antigua was no exception and he decided to order the hot dog at this luxury property. Check out the video describing his take on their hot dog below.

Beach in AntiguaMy husband, Tom, who writes for Gadling and Luxist, and I are in Antigua on our baby moon.  We are staying at Curtain Bluff and it is our first experience with 1)an all-inclusive restort and 2)traveling to the Caribbean.  The vibe is so different here.  Everyone at the resort greets you with a smile and a hello. 

 The island is only 108 square miles and has 90,000 residents.  Tom commented that the population in our neighborhood in Manhattan is larger than their entire island.  It is amazing to think of how large Manhattan is in relation to other places but I digress.

Today we had our island tour and got to see parts of the island that we would not have seen otherwise and learn a bit about it’s history.  It is such a beautiful place with water all around no matter where we looked.  Eric Clapton has a home here and we got to see it from a distance.  It is massive and very impressive.  Tom took pictures and I will post them later.

At Curtain Bluffs, I had a pregnancy massage.  The woman’s hands were magical.  She moved around with the slightest of noise.  I barely knew when she switched from one side to the next.  I really appreciated her concern about my comfort throughout the massage.  I don’t get massages often and it can be uncomfortable to be naked around a stranger.  It is compounded by the fact that I am pregnant and therefore a bit larger than my normal self. 

We met with the General Manager today who showed us around the property and gave us complimentary spa treatments.  I am going to get a facial tomorrow and Tom is getting an aromatherapy massage.  After our treatments, we are going to watch the sunset over the Caribbean Sea from their balcony at the spa. 

This has been a really fun vacation.  We always enjoy our vacations but they aren’t always fun trips.  Tom is not a relax and sit back type of guy.  He has embraced this and has enjoyed the beach thoroughly.  He went up against some major waves today and I don’t think I have seen him smile so much in a while.  He has already mentioned bringing Hunter here in a few years.

Overall, I would recommend Curtain Bluff to anyone looking for a romantic getaway, babymoon destination or true relaxing vacation.
