Nestled among the high rise buildings of Singapore’s Central Business District (CBD) the recently opened Virgin Active Marina One fitness club now provides members with a unique experience. Thanks to its innovative collaboration with Fluidra, the flagship club boasts the only indoor heated and air-conditioned pool in the CBD. This exclusive collaboration not only sets Virgin Active apart from others in the field, but also further cements Fluidra’s position as a leader in the global pool and wellness market.
The three-lane, twenty meter-length Skypool from Astralpool, allows members of all abilities to swim in a comfortable and dynamic environment. It features a hot galvanized steel panel structure, providing durability, reliability and sustainability.
In addition to swimming, the pool is also used to hold a number of exercise classes. Members can enjoy activities such as H2O Sculpt workouts which provide high intensity, low impact training in a unique atmosphere away from the traditional gym floor.
Meanwhile, Fluidra’s hydrotherapy spa provides an oasis of calm away from the hustle and bustle of central Singapore. Users can make the most of a variety of jets to relax and unwind in the comfort of our state of the art, mosaic-adorned stainless steel pool. Relaxation doesn’t get any better than this!
Combining stunning views over Singapore with Fluidra’s innovative technology, gym members can now have the best possible pool and wellness experience. Working in close collaboration Fluidra and Virgin Active have created something special with a definite “Wow” factor!
According to Fluidra’s Gary Siah, Managing Director, Singapore:
«Rental is very expensive in Singapore and the administrative and registration works to have indoor pools in existing buildings is complicated.»
However, his team was able to balance the requirements of local regulations together with the needs of Virgin Active to create a something that is both practical and striking.
With the success of Marina One, Fluidra anticipates that there will be increased demand from both the public and fitness clubs for similar facilities in central Singapore.
Fluidra has already worked with Virgin Active on similar projects in Thailand and currently has another project ongoing in Bangkok, due to be completed by the end of 2018.
This new addition in Singapore solidifies our successful relationship with Virgin Active in Asia and we look forward to working with them again in the future!
