Fisher Island Club & Resort is revered as “Florida’s most exclusive club and residences.”
It’s situated on (you guessed it) Fisher’s Island, Florida—a private island located just off the coast of Miami’s South Beach that doubles as a historical landmark (the personal retreat oasis of the Vanderbilt family in the early 1900s).
For a tennis fanatic with a travel bug it’s the perfect place to get away, relax, and play to your heart’s content. This five-star resort comes with a five-star price tag, but if you’re willing to shell out the cash, then you’re definitely in for a treat.
With room costs ranging from $450 per night to as high as $3,500 per night (depending on room requirements, time of year, and various package options), your credit card won’t be thanking you after your trip, but your body and soul definitely will.
Tennis Training Facilities
Now to the important stuff: The tennis facilities. Fisher Island Club & Resort features 18 tennis courts on premises with all four “Grand Slam” court surfaces—one of few places in the world to offer such variety.
With two grass courts, two hard courts, two “French Open” European red clay courts, and 14 Har-Tru clay courts, Fisher Island is bound to give you a tennis-playing experience unlike any you’ve had before. It’s no wonder the Mediterranean-inspired Racquet Club has been ranked #1 on the U.S. East Coast by Tennis Magazine.
Lessons are available daily on the island from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm and clinics are offered throughout the year. To schedule instruction or for more tennis information, those interested are asked to call 305-535-6010. Scott Moore, Tennis Director at Fisher Island, can be contacted by telephone directly at 305-535-6000 ext. 5011 or by email at email@example.com
One of the beauties of the Fisher Island Club & Resort is that it truly is a full-service resort with all the island amenities you could dream of.
If you choose to make your stay there a true island getaway, you can by spending your days (besides playing tennis) playing golf, lounging by the pool, enjoying the fitness club, relaxing at the spa, or even chartering a fishing boat or yacht from the only private, deep-water marina in Miami. And you can spend your nights choosing from one of the seven dining options available on the island.
If you’re feeling a bit too secluded on the island, however, the hustle and bustle of Miami is just a short boat ride away, along with its world-class beaches, 5-star restaurants, luxury shopping facilities, and incredible nightlife. Museums, aquariums, and professional sporting arenas are just a few of the activities available ashore.
How To Book
When you head to the Fisher Island website—www.fisherislandclub.com—the first text on the page reads: “Reserve Your Stay On-Line or Call 305.535.6000” so doing just that is quite likely your easiest means of booking your stay at the resort. Just below the online reservation information on the website, however, are three buttons that read “Resort Guest,” “Private Club Membership,” and “Residential Ownership.” If you’re interested in making your stay at Fisher Island regular or more permanent, then either of the latter two options are probably best for you.
There are three membership options at Fisher Island—Equity Membership, Annual Membership, and Introductory Membership. Each has their own pros and cons, but ultimately, give you nearly-unlimited access to the “world-class amenities and unsurpassed privileges” that the club boasts. You can also choose to purchase a residence at Fisher Island and live the luxury resort lifestyle on a daily basis.
Overall, whichever avenue you choose to take to visit Fisher Island Club & Resort, you’re bound to have the experience of a lifetime. With only five negative reviews on TripAdvisor, and a 4.5 rating overall, there doesn’t seem to be much not to like about this beautiful, historical island with an unmatched tennis facility and all-around exclusive, luxury experience for any and all of its visitors.
