Where to rest your head if you want to workout
GOLFERS

Datai, Langkawi 
This rainforest hideaway that’s set by the beach is a short drive from the Ernie Els Club. Winner of the World’s Best Golf Course, the club features not one, but three courses. After playing a round or two, you can then book a massage in the Datai’s spa, hidden amongst the sea hibiscus trees.

SKIERS

Little Nell, USA
Aspen’s only ski-in, ski-out hotel could easily rest on its powdery white laurels. But it offers so much more, including a Ski Concierge who will make sure that your boots are warm and your skis are waxed so that you can have a memorable day on the snow. You also have the chance to join the Snow Patrol and do the first sweep of the mountain. First tracks? Don’t mind if we do.

TENNIS PLAYERS

Carlisle Bay, Antigua
The only thing that will put you off your game when you come to Carlisle Bay is the view. Apart from that you have nine tennis to hone your serve on, including three tennis courts. Tennis pro Ken Gonsalves also offers complimentary tennis clinics. Move aside Serena.
