In addition to personalised private tuition and tennis ‘discovery’ sessions, LUX Tennis at Amilla offers a range of training programmes and challenges including Challenge The Pro, where guests can take on the pro in a tie break to win a free session, a Kids’ Tennis Clinic specially created for under 12s, Train Like a Pro drills up against the ball machine, and a service speed-gun challenge.
LUX Tennis at Amilla Fushi will also welcome some of the biggest names in tennis for one-off exhibitions and clinics, giving guests unrivalled access to some of the sport’s all-time greats.
From November 26 to December 3, world no. 4 Alexander ‘Sascha’ Zverev will return to Amilla with his brother and fellow pro Mischa Zverev for an exhibition to demonstrate first hand what it takes to win a one off contest. Guests will also have a chance to learn a thing or two from the brothers with a complimentary one hour tennis clinic at Amilla’s sister resort Finolhu, just a short speedboat ride away in Baa atoll.
From January 4-11, 2018, tennis fans visiting Amilla will also have a unique opportunity to rally with former US Open Men’s Singles champion and world no. 1 Pat Rafter. As well as playing an exhibition match against the resort’s resident LUX Tennis Pro, Rafter will also play a one-on-one with the winner of Amilla’s festive tennis tournament for guests.
Located just 30 minutes by seaplane from the main Velana International Airport, Amilla offers a choice of 59 Houses that sit gracefully over crystal clear waters, nestled amongst lush tree tops or huggin the shores of pristine white sand. Additionally, eight spectacular four to eight-bedroom Beach Residences ideally suited to large families, groups of friends and VVIPs seeking the ultimate in space and privacy are also available.
Amilla’s innovative restaurants range from the diverse, informal foodie hub Baazaar to the relaxed yet sophisticated overwater dining at the signature Feeling Koi.
