This San Diego retreat, where each guest casita features vaulted ceilings, hand-painted tiles, indoor and outdoor fireplaces, a four-poster bed and a plunge pool, is known for its tennis and fitness programs, thanks to a staff of USPTA- and USPTR-certified tennis pros.

Four Seasons Hualalai

The ultimate luxury resort on Hawaii's Big Island, the swanky Four Seasons complex is a destination in itself. In addition to multiple pools, a championship golf course and a beloved kids' program, the resort includes eight Rebound Ace surface courts (with two lit for night play), a tennis shop and a staff of excellent coaches leading private lessons and daily clinics. There are also evening doubles mixers to meet fellow racquet-toting guests and a unique “Play the Pro” opportunity allowing guests to challenge a pro on the court—if you win the set, your court fees are waived.

Pebble Beach

This famed California resort set on a bluff in Monterey may be best known for its location next to the top-rated public golf course in America (the storied Pebble Beach Golf Links), but its tennis program is equally impressive. Guests enjoy complimentary access to both The Beach & Tennis Club, with ten championship courts (8 Plexipave and two Har-Tru clay courts), and The Spanish Bay Club, with eight enclosed Plexipave tennis courts. Both facilities offer lessons, camps and clinics.
