Top 5 Best Luxury Tennis Resorts

Updated on July 7, 2011

Okay - so a tennis vacation isn't for everyone. Let's face it, it's for one kind of person, or one kind of family, and one kind of family only - a tennis family. That's not to say that tennis resorts don't reside in some of the best vacation destinations on the planet, because they do; but the overall emphasis of an all inclusive tennis resort, for example, is to play tennis in some of the nicest settings in the world (the keyword being play).

There are many different types of tennis vacations to choose from, including family tennis resorts, luxury tennis resorts, tennis camp resorts, tennis coaching vacations, as well many other variations.

Tennis resorts are a worldwide thing (probably due to the fact that tennis is a world-reknowned sport) giving you plenty of options to choose from.

But that's not why you're here. You want to know what the best tennis resorts are; what the best tennis resorts for families, for couples and for kids are; you want to know what the top luxury tennis resorts are.



Caneel Bay on St. John

This is one of the best luxury tennis resorts in the world, as well as one of the cheapest tennis vacation; and with that kind of combo, well, it can't be beat. Caneel Bay is on the lower-key luxury tennis resorts, which is good thing; it means, in the end, that you'll get much more court time.

Caneel Bay is an island bought by a millionaire in the 1950s; he bought the bay and the surrounding land to create the first ever national park in the Caribbean. You know what this means? Pure, untouched, natural beauty and the perfect setting for a family tennis vacation.

After a devastating blow by Hurricane Omar in 2008, the tennis resort just reopened this December.  But now it's better than ever. 

Four Seasons Nevis West Indies

This all inclusive tennis resort is, well, tennis heaven; it's one of the best resorts for tennis couples, for families, and even for singles - it's the ultimate tennis vacation destination.

Where is it? Located on the Caribbean island of Nevis the resort spans 36 square miles.
