Las Ventanas al Paraíso, A Rosewood Resort has selected Peter Burwash International, the world’s leading tennis instruction and management company, to direct the Five Diamond resort’s exclusive tennis program.
“Peter Burwash International’s reputation for world-class tennis programs and outstanding service is a perfect match with Las Ventanas,” said Managing Director Lionel Alvarez. “The relationship combines our passion for delivering the ultimate guest experience with PBI’s ability to bring a new dimension of excitement and quality to our guest activities.”
Overseeing the program at Las Ventanas is PBI tennis professional Claudio Bravo, who has many years of experience in all facets of the game, from winning high school state championships and competing at the college varsity level to teaching at tennis academies, tennis clubs and resorts. Most recently, he oversaw the PBI tennis program at Reynolds Plantation in Georgia, providing the PBI-brand of personalized instructional and social programs for the club membership as well as guests of the Ritz-Carlton Hotel.
The addition of PBI’s world-class instruction is another key component to a tennis program that sets industry standards. Las Ventanas, the only Five Diamond resort in the destination of Los Cabos, is known for its special touches and attention to detail that delight guests, and the resort’s unique pampering is offered on the courts, too. A court attendant is on duty to provide a full array of complimentary services, from retrieving balls for guests as at a professional tournament, to ensuring that guests remain cool and comfortable by providing cold towels and Evian spray mists, to offering light refreshments such as bottled water and fresh fruit. A large Mexican palapa (a natural umbrella made of thatched and woven palm fronds), sheltering a table and chairs, provides a shady place for guests to rest between sets. The facilities comprise two hard-surface courts with excellent lighting so guests can opt to play in the cool evenings.
PBI has also directs the tennis program for two sister Rosewood properties in the Caribbean: Caneel Bay and Little Dix Bay.
Founded in 1975, Peter Burwash International specializes in program development, marketing, management and daily tennis activities for Five Star and Five Diamond resorts, hotels and tennis clubs worldwide. Recognized for world-class instruction and exceptional customer service, PBI currently directs tennis programs for 55 exclusive properties in North America, Hawaii, Asia, the Middle East, the Indian Ocean, Europe and the Caribbean.
