On the Court with Cliff Drysdale: Baha Mar

Baha Mar Sail


Cliff Drysdale Tennis (CDT) prides itself on offering a variety of tennis travel experiences for guests of all ages and abilities. Whether you’re based on the East Coast, West Coast, or internationally, there are resort and camp options that are right for you. New for 2021, CDT is thrilled to introduce one of the most unique and luxurious tennis travel experiences in its portfolio, Baha Mar.

Located on the northern shore of New Providence Island, Bahamas, Baha Mar overlooks the white sands and tranquil turquoise waters of the secluded Cable Beach, widely regarded as one of the most breathtaking beaches in the Bahamas. Resort accommodations include the 1,800-room Grand Hyatt Baha Mar, the 299-room SLS Baha Mar, and the 237-room Rosewood Baha Mar. You cannot go wrong with any of these three options: The Grand Hyatt features relaxed modern luxury; the SLS’s signature spirit of sensuality and glamour is infused with Caribbean flair; and the Rosewood epitomizes Bahamian refinement and sophistication. When you book your camp with Cliff Drysdale Tennis, you can choose to stay at any of the three hotels, finding the perfect fit for you, your family, and friends.

The tennis portion of your stay is going to be a highlight. The Racquet Club at Baha Mar is a stunning facility that includes an incredible variety both in program offerings and in court surfaces. The club is home to six championship hard courts, two Har-Tru clay courts, and one real grass court. A stay at Baha Mar allows players to enjoy three different surfaces, each of which comes with its own set of challenges. Programming, led by Director of Tennis Jim Tressler and his team of pros, is geared for all players regardless of ability, with daily clinics and lessons available for resort guests and locals.

“We have a number of stunning locations in our portfolio, and Baha Mar ranks right up there with the best of them,” said Scott Colebourne, COO of Cliff Drysdale Tennis. “This is a place that will inspire you to play better, take stress completely off your mind, and immerse you in the true Bahamian hospitality that the resort complex provides.”

When you’re traveling for a tennis camp, the hours spent on court need to be complemented by convenient, easy, and appealing amenities. That’s where Baha Mar really starts to separate itself from its Caribbean competitors. Featuring the widest array of world-class restaurants, bars, and lounges in the Bahamas, there are limitless options designed to satisfy every craving, occasion, and mood. From casual fare and local cuisines to fine dining, your stay at Baha Mar will always feature something new.

Adding a round of golf to your itinerary is easy, as guests need look no further than the Jack Nicklaus-designed Royal Blue Golf Course, an 18-hole track that is both visually thrilling and a challenge to play. Bringing the kids or just looking for something more casual? Baha Mar introduced a new 18-hole mini-golf course located very close to the Racquet Club. It’s the perfect place to laugh, smile, and maybe even test your competitive spirits.

Families looking to book a signature summer trip will be happy to know that Baha Bay, a luxury beachfront waterpark, will be opening in early July at Baha Mar. Guests enjoy exclusive and unlimited access to relax, play, and enjoy, while the kids hit the waterpark, join the summer tennis camp, or experience the Explorers Club for the day.

Adults can also indulge at the Baha Mar Casino, the largest and most elegant casino in the Caribbean. Complimented by the William Hill Sportsbook, the casino features table games, slots, and more.

The resort also offers a signature spa. Perched above the white sands and tranquil turquoise waters, this inviting spa is designed to calm, soothe, and bring clarity to mind, body, and spirit. And it wouldn’t be a trip to the Bahamas without spending some serious time on the water. Whether you’re looking to sail, paddle or jet-surf, water sports are a must at Baha Mar.

“Baha Mar takes amenities to the next level, and we can’t wait to experiment with new camp formats that allow groups of all types to create a truly unforgettable experience,” said Katie Steck, Director of Experiences for Cliff Drysdale Tennis.

CDT is in the final stages of planning a new signature experience for late 2021, and will be releasing details soon. Whether you’re looking to get on the early wait-list or book your own custom experience at any time of year, email Katie Steck at k.steck@cliffdrysdale.com to get all information, pricing, and schedule the perfect itinerary for your trip.
