The Bahía del Duque Hotel is a preferred destination for elite sportspeople during the preseason. The island’s magnificent climate is suitable for training at any time of year.

The elite tennis players who have stayed at the hotel of The Tais Hotels & Villas in order to combine training and relaxation include Ernests Gulbis, Gael Monfils, Dennis Novak, Andrey Rublev, Denis Shapovalov, Alexander Shevchenko, Dominic Thiem and Feliciano López, as well as Julia Grabher, Karolina Pliskova and Elina Svitolina.
The coach Gunter Bresnik is also a regular on the courts of Bahía del Duque, where it is common to see him in the preseason periods alongside any of his players.
Bahía Wellness Retreat, relaxation after doing sport
Since its beginnings, Bahía del Duque has committed to distinguishing itself not only in terms of the quality of its accommodation – Suites, Casas Ducales and Villas – with a meticulous architectural style that evokes a 19th-century villa, but also its exclusive service, where privacy and personalised treatment are its trademark.
Its wellbeing area, Bahía Wellness Retreat, has been recognised among the best in the world (as by World Spa Awards and Condé Nast Johansens Awards for Excellence, among others) and offers an ideal environment for relaxation and stretching after doing sport. This exceptional spiritual and physical retreat to surprise the five senses has an expert team of therapists, coaches, and physiotherapists.
The director of the Bahía del Duque hotel, of The Tais Hotels & Villas, Cristina de Juan, states that “The island’s magnificent climate, perfect for training during the entire year, and the location of Bahía del Duque, next to the sea, is an ideal environment for relaxation. This makes our hotel a privileged place for those who love tennis and sports in general”.
