Kiawah once again Ranked No. 1 Tennis Resort in the World

Congratulations to Tennis Director Roy Barth and his staff for once again being named the No. 1 tennis resort in the WORLD by   Way to go!!!  This is the seventh out of the last eight years that we have been ranked No. 1.  As you can see from the ranking categories, it was a close competition.

The rankings come out each May 1 listing the top 75 tennis resorts in the world.  Kiawah has now been ranked

The source of the rankings comes from vacationers who are asked to assess resorts in seventeen categories.  Those include not only all aspects of the tennis experience but also such diverse off-court characteristics as the quality of lodging, restaurants, children’s programs, and value for dollar—so the ranking is definitely a total resort team effort.  I want to thank my staff who has worked so hard to make this ranking possible as well as other areas of the resort that contribute to the #1 ranking.  For your information the top 10 ranked resorts are as followed:


  1. Kiawah Island Golf Resort, South Carolina
  2. La Quinta Resort & Club, A Waldorf Astoria Resort, California
  3. The boulders, A Waldorf Astoria Resort, Arizona
  4. JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa, California
