Caneel Bay Caribbean Tennis Resort
Caneel Bay is a Rosewood Resort found on the pristine island of St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The resort recently took the top ranking in the category of Tennis Resorts and Camps in a survey taken by Tennis Resorts Online. Caneel Bay boasted the numero uno slot in the Caribbean and number 5 overall. That makes it the only resort in the Caribbean region to make the top 10. Who knew you could find world class tennis on St. John’s?
The Top 100 rankings were recently posted on the Tennis Resorts Online website, and were compiled using survey data from “vacationers like you: people who pay for their holiday and have every reason to be objective about the experience.” Site members were asked to evaluate tennis resorts and camps in 16 different categories, “including all aspects of the tennis experience.” The reviews from this survey scored Caneel Bay a “Gold Medal” overall, placing it in the company of the 25 best tennis resorts in the world.
For tennis lovers, Caneel Bay features an 11 court tennis facility that is managed by Peter Burwash International. A full schedule of tennis programs and round robins are implemented daily by the resort’s knowledgeable tennis staff, lead by the resident Tennis Pro, Patrick Alle.
