Turnberry Isle Resort & Club
Stretching across 300 acres on the mainland side of southern Florida's Intracoastal Waterway, Mediterranean-inspired buildings and tropical foliage-filled terraces share space with architecture of an entirely different kind: nests. This palazzo-like hideaway is also an Audubon-protected bird sanctuary.
The resort's two tennis complexes include 19 courts, 12 Hard-Tru clay and seven hard courts, all lit for night play. A schedule of daily tennis programs is packed with goal-orientated drills, high-energy clinics, private and small-group instruction, and social and competitive games. Video analysis, ball-machine rental, and same-day racquet stringing are available, and tennis concierges provide 24-hour match-making services. In addition, Turnberry is the home court of Australian tennis pro-turned-ESPN commentator Fred Stolle (Click here for information on Stolle’s fantasy camp in Antigua), as well as the Colon Nunez Training Center for Juniors.
Off the Court
The resort's Willow Stream Spa offers a broad menu of body treatments and massages, plus a complete fitness, aerobics, yoga and swimming center. A three-mile scenic jogging path winds throughout the property's tropical flower-laden landscape, and there are two on-site 18-hole golf courses, both designed by PGA legend Robert Trent Jones Sr. At the marina, guests can enjoy fishing and sailing, as well as organized cocktail cruises along the waterside bar-lined Intracoastal. Complimentary shuttle service whisks guests throughout the resort, to nearby Aventura Mall, and to the Turnberry's private ocean club.
Accommodations and Dining
Meant to evoke a dreamy, European-villa ambience, the resort's 392 rooms and suites feature rich wood furnishings, terracotta floors, Oriental rugs, Italian marble accents, and private balconies or terraces overlooking the golf courses or pool gardens. Eight restaurants and lounges include the seaside-casual Ocean Club, fairway-view The Grill, and The Veranda Restaurant, which features a Cuban-, Caribbean- and Latin American-influenced menu, complimentary afternoon hors d'oeuvres and live evening entertainment.
The "All Best Package" includes accommodations, valet parking, daily breakfast buffet, fitness facility and Ocean Club use, and $50 per night tennis center, pro shop or restaurant credit.
