[Luxus Magazine] Maria Sharapova: tennis czarina turned hotel wellness ambassador

Maria Sharapova, the Russian player and world star of women’s tennis, ended her career in 2020. She returns in 2024, as the first global wellness ambassador for the Aman hotel group. An appointment that echoes her sporting successes as much as her relentless and conscientious preparation sessions.

Away from the tennis courts, former world No.1 Maria Sharapova is now a wellness ambassador for Aman Hotels.


Working with the hotel group, the 1.88m sportswoman has co-constructed a range of rejuvenating retreats for its Amanpuri and New York establishments. The launch is scheduled for the end of February in Thailand.


With her athletic figure, international aura and routine workouts, Maria Sharapova seemed ideally suited to embodying the values of the hotel group, as well as helping to associate Aman’s establishments as must-haves for anyone wishing to stay in shape.

Former world number one

Her strident snarl will no longer resonate on the world’s greatest courts. “With these words, 32-year-old Maria Sharapova announced in the pages of Vogue and Vanity Fair that she would be retiring from tennis in February 2020. The epilogue to a 28-year career studded with success.


She remains one of the very few champions to have won four Grand Slam tournaments: Wimbledon at just 17 in 2004, the US Open in 2006, the Australian Open in 2008 and Roland Garros in 2012 and 2014. She also won a Masters title in 2004 and an Olympic medal in 2012.
