Situated on the beautiful Captiva and Sanibel islands off the coast of Florida, South Seas Island Resort has routinely stood above other recreation destinations because of its extreme dedication to quality service and luxury.
Their fully-equipped accommodations include a huge variety of choices, ranging in styles from those wanting a nice relaxing view of the ocean with their beach side villas to those more interested in working on their tennis skills with rooms right beside the courts.
With the same sort of contemporary décor that has long made Florida a premiere vacation destination, you can expect fully panoramic views of the ocean and easy access to their marinas and beaches.
This is a big resort property that fits perfectly with tennis seeking vacationers and families alike. There isn’t much that you won’t be able to check off your list when it comes to this resort on the west coast riviera of Florida.
Located in the beautiful enclave of Captiva Island, a true gem on the west side of Florida, and located a quick 45 minute trip from the Ft. Myers International airport.
TENNIS TRAINING FACILITIES
Of course what makes South Sea Islands Resort such a favorite isn’t just their rooms but also their professional tennis programs and facilities designed specifically to cater to all ranges of expertise, from beginners to pros.
The extensive Blackwood Tennis center takes into account that everyone has different needs and attempts to deliver an experience that is specially tailored to each client – classes range in styles from adult, designed to help those who have some limited experience all the way down to kid’s classes.
But what they all have in common is a balanced mixture between technique and skill development, and the prime instructor Olga is extremely patient and really makes an effort to ensure that each lesson is fun and unforgettable.
With 11 courts there is almost always one available, and the Blackwood also features 4 fully lighted courts that allow players to engage in some late-night bouts as well.
For those who just want to have some fun, there’s also a concierge service that can help match up singles and doubles for matches.
The 11 blue colored hard courts are staffed by a professional group of tennis pros and they will develop and implement tennis training group classes, individual lessons, and social functions daily.
This includes daily clinics for adults, clinics for children, as well as Cardio tennis that runs usually 3 days per week.
There are different levels groupings from beginner to advanced that are offered for clinics as well as social round robin groups offered year-round at South Seas Resort.
Court fees are included in your resort stay and you can easily make accommodations by contacting the pro shop at: 239-472-5111, ext. 4151 or asking for more information during check-in.
Attached to the South Sea Islands Resort are a range of other experiences as well, adhering to a philosophy of fitness and well-being that includes everything from Ambu yoga classes in the morning to para-sailing off the coast.
Their activities are conveniently divided into both water and land depending on your preference.
Being on an island, they take a particular pride in offering water-related activities which include fishing trips off Sanibel Island and other tailored trips – the staff at South Sea Islands Resort are always available to give you more information and help you design your own trip depending on your preference.
Because of their proximity to a huge aquatic reserve, it goes without saying that one of the more attractive deals they offer for kids and tweens is the Sanibel Sea School at North Pointe which takes clients out for deep-sea adventures and snorkeling trips to explore the vast ecology of the Florida coast.
The excursion is full of amazing opportunities to look for manatees or marvel at sea urchins and local flora and fauna, their helpful and fully-trained guides provide a safe and educational environment to learn about the ocean and what it has to offer.
