Here's what others have had to say about Sea Island.

  • 4½-Ball Rating "Sea Island has something for everyone. It's extremely upscale, but it's still a beach resort. The tennis is located right near the beach club, fitness/spa, and the hotel, the Cloister. It truly is a magical place."—T.P., Pro, January 2020
  • 5-Ball Rating "My wife and I had a wonderful time staying at Sea Island and playing tennis. My wife thoroughly enjoyed the teaching and coaching and learned a lot during both drills and private lessons. They went out of their way to arrange 4.5 level game each day primarily made up of teaching pros who were willing to stay late and play in order to ensure their guests were happy. The tennis facility is spectacular with all courts isolated to the point where errant balls will never stop play. The rooms at Sea Island are those of a world class resort and the resort oozes luxury at every turn. The hotel is spread out into many buildings and requires a golf cart ride to and from the tennis facility so be prepared to have the hotel shuttle you back and forth to the tennis center (or anyplace else you might want to go). The shuttle guys were all great, friendly and just a phone call away. If your looking for a tennis vacation with a luxurious, healthy heaping of Southern Hospitality - go to Sea Island now."—B.B., Adv., October 2017
  • 5-Ball Rating "Sea Island is an amazing resort that has something for everyone. They have a great tennis facility & can accommodate all playing levels. They have outgoing instructors, fun clinics & round robins. They are flexible to tailor to your desires. You can go with friends, a group or a single and have a blast! Just make sure to sign up early during the holiday seasons. I give Sea Island an A++++"—M.W., Adv. Int., April 2017
  • 4-Ball Rating "Great tennis resort but hot and humid in June."—G.N., Adv., April 2016
  • 5-Ball Rating "I recently was approached by a friend about summer plans. She asked me if I would be willing to take her daughter with me to Sea Island, just so that she can work with the tennis pros. Well, it is a true testament to their program. A resort has people come and go of all ages and abilities. It can't be easy to hone in on these individuals and their abilities. However, there is ALWAYS an exception. The Sea Island Tennis facilities are the exception. Therefore making them, EXCEPTIONAL! They are so in tune with the individuals, that the experience we have on the courts, follows us back home. So much so, that others evidently have taken notice. You can see the attention to detail in everything they do both on the court, in planning, and strategizing. I can only say wonderful things about the teaching staff, the pro shop staff, and the facilities."—S.M., Adv., April 2016

No weaknesses with lesson at all. My only complaint was that I really wanted to do some match play and was never called. I gave y name to the tennis concierge in the hopes that they would arrange something. We were there 7 days, so there was ample opportunity."—K.O., Adv. Int., August 2014

Int., August 2014
  • 5-Ball Rating "Sea Island Tennis is a top destination for the tennis enthusiast. I have just returned from my 3rd visit there and it is a great place to play tennis. The staff in the Pro Shop make is so easy to book a court and to hit with a pro. The courts are meticulously maintained and they have a variety of pros to hit with. Each pro challenged me and helped me bring my game up to the next level. I would not hesitate to recommend this outstanding resort."—S.G., Adv. Int., August 2014
  • 5-Ball Rating "Great staff!!! Gorgeous facilities! Everyone should visit"—C.P., Adv., August 2014
  • 5-Ball Rating "Sea Island is the most outstanding tennis resort. Murphy Jensen has infused his passion for the sport throughout every aspect of the tennis program. His many talented pros run intense cardio and drills each day. You'll have some of the best tennis workouts of your life here. Taking lessons with Luke Jensen definitely elevates your game to the next level. My teenager's set aside sporting clays and riding to get more time on the court. The atmosphere is exciting and fun amidst the live oaks and southern charm of The Cloister's."—J.S., Adv. Int., August 2014
  • 5-Ball Rating ""—M.K., Int., August 2014
  • 5-Ball Rating "the facilities are first rate with the har tru courts in pristing condition without divots and hard spots. They water and add calcium to maintain a perfect court. THe setting is absolutely gorgeous with semi private courts that have shaded resting carousels between courts, with cold water and ice. Ball machines are first rate and work without a hitch. The staff are friendly and engaging and the instructors are friendly and happy to teach. Very positive and with a ton on info to dispense. The weekly tennis calendar has something for everyone, including the social tennis players. There are demos from the teaching pros given once a week. While the place has dozens of kids around, you don't even notice as they are well taken care of by the staff and engage them away from the serious hard core players. The only draw back is the small pro shop with limited clothing, racquets and sports clothing. This could be expanded"—M.C., Adv., August 2014
  • 5-Ball Rating "Awesome program and great staff. Very accomodating friendly and good for all levels of tennis."—L.P., Adv., August 2014
  • 5-Ball Rating "We had an incredible experience at Sea Island. I am a strong 4.0 player, and joined their drills and cardio tennis classes almost every day. I found them competitive and fun. I have 5 kids (age range 14 - 5, skill level from advanced / tournament player to beginner) who all did the Murphy Jensen Tennis Academy and they all had a great experience. They couldn't wait to go back. The staff did a terrific job of matching competitive levels in the drills, and arranging competitive matches for the kids outside of the classes, which was fantastic. My daughter, who had high school tryouts soon after our return, played 3-4 hours a day and had a fantastic experience. I would highly recommend Sea Island tennis - we travel alot, and I play most places we travel. This is by far the best resort tennis around."—C.C., Adv., August 2014
  • 5-Ball Rating "Sea Island has fantastic instructors, luxurious facilities, and beautiful, well maintained clay courts. I am a beginning player and I took a couple of individual lessons with Frank Solana. His instruction was very clear and I experienced improvements in my game right away."—C.T., Low Int., August 2014

They made sure they remembered your name and that your needs were always met. I hope to return in a couple of months ."—D.M., Adv. Int., July 2014
  • 4½-Ball Rating "We specifically went to Sea Island on vacation for its tennis program for our daughter who is an elite junior player. She found the programs to be excellent and not at all "resort" tennis. It is hard to find great junior programs on vacation and Sea Island fulfilled our daughters needs."—L.S., Adv., July 2014
  • 5-Ball Rating ""—D.E., Pro, July 2014

  • 5-Ball Rating ""—L.T., Adv., July 2014
  • 5-Ball Rating "The tennis program at Sea Island, GA is top notch. Everyone in our family plays tennis - my husband, myself, and our three kids (ages 10, 8 and 6). Our children play USTA junior tournaments. The tennis program at Sea Island offers incredible options for adults and children. A high performance elite junior program, cardio tennis, doubles clinics for adults, a beginner clinic - and so much more. The staff is impressive. The pros are some of the best we have encountered.
    Luke and Murphy Jensen bring a passion and energy to the program. The brothers compliment each other well. The cost for private lessons is steep, especially with the Jensen brothers. With that said, the quality of teaching is very high. The new Head Pro is very organized and runs the tennis program well. The tennis facility and courts are the best I have played on. Beautiful setting and so many options for great tennis with match play, clinics, lessons and court time."
    —E.F., Adv., July 2014
  • 5-Ball Rating "We had a terrific time at Sea Island this April. My husband and I played clinics every morning, and the kids program at 4:30 is full of energy and is just great. They get the kids moving! Special thanks to Kyle and Alex who took great care of us all week, including a few private lessons. But everyone at Sea Island was just so enthusiastic - a great atmosphere and tons of just making tennis fun. This is particularly great for me, as the #4 tennis player in my family now. This resort also has endless activities, so it was hard to pick what to do sometimes. But note that the kids grandparents invited and hosted us. Sea Island is a pretty upscale resort. You get a lot of value and so much you can do, but it also seemed that the costs can add up."—A.F., Int., May 2014
  • 5-Ball Rating "Just returned from a weekend of tennis camp. Best ever! Murphy Jensen is an amazing instructor and has an outstanding staff. Everything is first class. I didn't want to go home. Can't wait to return. Left with many new skills and better understand of the game. Thank you it was great and would highly recommend. The facilities are beautiful."—B.S., Adv. Int., January 2014
  • 5-Ball Rating "Thank you Jenson brothers!!! Yall brought tennis back to our island!!! "—H.M., Int., September 2012
  • 3-Ball Rating "Relaxing...quality....southern program only so/so...not geared to arranging shop closes at 5...bring your own group......sort of like a clinic machine for the money (fine if that's what you want)...Jensen Bros need to get involved on daily/weekly basis."—L.S., Adv. Int., July 2012
  • 5-Ball Rating "Absolutely the finest tennis resort in the county/world. IF GOD HAS A TENNIS COURT IN HEAVEN, THIS IS WHAT THEY WOULD LOOK LIKE,,,,,,,. The greatest teaching/hitting pros anywhere. Do not let the entire tennis world find out about this resort because I do not want to share the courts!!!! PS I do not work for the resort. This has been my favorite tennis resort for the past 10+ years."—E.W., Adv., April 2012
  • 4½-Ball Rating ""—S.Y., Int., April 2012
  • 5-Ball Rating "Sea Island is one of the greatest experiences you will ever have at a resort. Its history and tradition is unrivaled. The resort is not as cheap as others but you get what you pay for. You won't be dissapointed."—J.S., Adv., June 2010
  • 5-Ball Rating "Tennis in Sea Island is an experience I never imagined was possible. The instructors are incredibly helpful for every level, and the head of the center could not be a better person and professional. Stepping onto the courts, you forget about the incredible exercise that tennis demands. The courts are extremely well maintained and the surroundings bring a sense of calming and serenity. I highly recommend the tennis center and the resort overall. Nothing is better than a vacation in Sea Island."—J.W., Adv., June 2010
  • 4½-Ball Rating "Excellent service and accommodations. Many activities for all ages!"—S.Y., Int., April 2009

Rates and Reservations

Sea Island

There are 175 rooms and suites in the new Cloister Hotel and those are supplemented by 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom suites in the beachfront Ocean Villas. All of that lodging clusters together near the Beach Club and spa. The alternative, and it is an elegant one, is to opt instead for the 40-room Lodge at Sea Island, which is not on Sea Island at all but 5½ miles away on St. Simons Island. And finally there are the Sea Island Cottages, which are privately owned and range in size from 3 to 8 bedrooms.
