Set on 144 acres, this 365-room luxury hotel begins along Seven Mile Beach and extends completely across the island to North Sound. To this region renowned for its scuba diving, the Ritz-Carlton brings a host of upscale amenities, including three red clay and twohard courts staffed by pros with international experience. The pursuit of designer facilities extends to the rest of the facilities as well, with a Greg Norman-designed "Blue tip" 9-hole golf course, the Caribbean's first La Prairie Spa, a Ritz Kids program under Jean-Michel Cousteau's Ambassadors of the Environment, and two restaurants by Eric Ripert of New York City's Le Bernardin.

The tennis staff offers private lessons, game matching, Cardio tennis, summer youth camps (customized activities for kids 4-18 ranging from golf to tennis to water sports to eco-excursions with Ambassadors of the Environment by Jean-Michel Cousteau), and tailor-made clinics for groups.
