Dusit Thani Maldives, a luxury Thai-inspired resort on Mudhdhoo Island in Baa Atoll, has teamed up with tennis coaching company Recreational Tennis Coaching to offer lessons for the resort’s guests – including junior and adult coaching sessions, private and group classes tailored to suit all levels of ability.
Officially starting on 15 December 2019, new resident tennis coaches Luka and Britanny will guide attendees of any experience level through tennis lessons. From forehand and backhand techniques, to tactics, serves and returns, slices and volleys, participants will learn everything they need to know to be considered a good player.
Both coaches bring with them a more than 10 years’ combined experience teaching children and adults around the world. During his career, Luka has also worked with tennis stars such as Ramazzotti Samuele, Novak Djokovic, Victor Troicki, Simone Bolelli, Thomas Fabbiano, Stefano Travaglia, and Filippo Volandri, amongst others.
All the lessons and activities will be conducted at the resort’s two floodlit tennis courts, which are kept in excellent condition and available to book 24 hours in advance through the activity centre. All equipment, including high-quality balls and racquets, are available for complimentary hire.
“Following on from the popular Thai massage and stretching wellness classes we recently introduced at Devarana Spa, the new tennis classes are designed to offer another exciting and healthy lifestyle experience for our guests,” said Thomas Weber, General Manager of Dusit Thani Maldives. “Fun and inspiring, the lessons will give everyone a chance to pick up a racquet and play, no matter what their age or skill level, and we are sure they will be a huge success.”
Located just 35 minutes by seaplane from capital city Malé, and 10 minutes by speedboat from Dharavandhoo Domestic Airport in Baa Atoll, Dusit Thani Maldives comprises 94 villas and residences, along with three restaurants, two bars, and Dusit’s signature Devarana Spa. The resort is surrounded by a rich house reef, white sandy beaches and a turquoise lagoon. A wellequipped Kids Club adds to the resort’s family-friendly appeal.
