Antigua and Barbuda, Curtain Bluff. November 12, 2019

Curtain Bluff, a luxury fully inclusive resort in Antigua, is pleased to announce the appointment of seasoned hospitality professional Andrea Balladori as General Manager.

A hospitality veteran, Andrea has more than 30 years in the hotel industry. Andrea joins Curtain Bluff after serving as the Executive Assistant Manager at Gayana Marine Resort in Sabah, Malaysia. He previously held positions at Grosvenor House Park Lane and Dukes Hotel in London, Careys Manor in Hampshire and back in his home country of Tuscany at Hotel Il Pellicano in Porto Ercole. Andrea brings his world-class expertise to Curtain Bluff after traveling the globe and working at 5-star boutique properties from the Congo to South East Asia.

"We are thrilled to welcome Andrea to the Curtain Bluff family," said Rob Sherman, Managing Director of Curtain Bluff. "With his extensive leadership background and expertise, we are confident the resort will thrive in the island's dynamic landscape. Through our many investments and improvements over the years, Curtain Bluff will continue to be the "it" destination in Antigua and deliver an elegant yet unpretentious experience with the same family charm and personalized service."

In the midst of a very exciting time on property, Andrea joined the Curtain Bluff family this July. Upon the resort's reopening (on October 26th) following a seasonal closure, all 12 of the Bluff Suites will be completely refreshed featuring beautiful new interiors, fresh natural stone tiling, bathrooms and furnishings complete with the best panoramic views of the resort's Surf Beach. This is a continuation of Curtain Bluff's ongoing plan where in the next 24 months every room will be brand new.

"I am excited to be a part of this innovative team as we continue to elevate the exceptional offerings at Curtain Bluff for our current and future guests with state-of-the-art renovations and authentic Caribbean experiences," said Andrea Balladori, General Manager.

Hotel Spa: Back to Nature

As the Wellness Industry continues to expand, hotel spas are also diversifying, placing a greater emphasis on overall well-being. For some spas, this means providing clients with all-inclusive packages that include fitness classes, healthy dining, and offsite leisure activities, in addition to their core services. For example, spas near ski resorts are offering packages that include lift passes, pre-ski yoga sessions, after-ski dinners and spa treatments. Other spas are offering packages that include massages, saunas, mineral baths, hot springs, and recreational hiking and snowmobile activities. These kinds of spa offerings are also part of a "Back to Nature" movement that encourages guests to get out and experience the healing qualities of nature. One such therapy is the Japanese practice known as "forest bathing" which has become popular with spas that are near wooded areas. This practice relies on the ancient power of a forest for promoting a sense of health and well-being. Other spas are incorporating precious metals and stones into their health and beauty treatments - such as silver, gold, pearls and amber. Silver ion baths relax the body and mind, reduce fatigue, and restore energy balance. Gold keeps skin radiant and can even treat various skin diseases and infections, due to its antibacterial qualities. Amber is used to calm the nervous system and to relieve stress. Other natural products and therapies that are increasingly in demand include sound therapy, cryotherapy, infra-red saunas, and even CBD oil, which is being used in massages, facials and foot scrubs, providing a new form of stress relief. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will document these trends and other new developments, and report on how some hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
