If you love tennis, you should add these hotels to your “must visit” list. With excellent programs and breathtaking courts — and for some, a reputation as a tennis powerhouse — each of these six hotels can help you improve your game and give you an unforgettable experience doing it.
1. Mauna Kea Beach Hotel
When it comes to beautiful settings for tennis, Mauna Kea Beach Hotel Kamuelamight just have the best.

There are outstanding pros at the hotel, providing lessons, clinics, and more.
2. Four Seasons Nevis
The Four Seasons Resort Nevis is located on a tiny island in the West Indies. While the island is small, the hotel’s reputation for tennis is not. Considered the premier tennis resort in the region, it features a program managed by Peter Burwash International. The tennis facility boasts 10 lit courts, as well as a pro shop.
3. Ritz Carlton Grand Cayman
If you’re looking to improve your game while you travel, visit the Ritz Carlton Grand Cayman. The tennis center here was designed by Nick Bollettieri — the legendary coach behind standouts like Andre Agassi and Monica Seles. Pros from Bollettieri’s training academy in Florida run the tennis programs at the hotel, so they’ll definitely have some helpful pointers to help you fix your backhand.
4. Conrad Miami
Want to play a match with a view? Head to the Conrad Miami, where the courts are located on the roof. Look out over the city while you play, and take a dip in the rooftop pool next door when you’re done with your match.
