One of the worst places I have been to. Charging 200 over dollars to provide with a locker which doesn't works, pool with safety instructions put on as a decorative item, staff who cannot speak english (sorry have to point this out as they try to say sorry all the time and cannot do anything else), worst of all even a basic soap dispenser which costs a few bucks for replacement are cracked or cannot be used. The managers or owners probably think they have created a "master piece" hahaha, which indeed it is. Word of caution to others, this place is definitely not for expats.

Unlike Finnmaccool I got so desperate for a swim and a gym somewhere central that I joined for 6 months for $130 per month (off peak membership only and I joined at the beginning of this year when it may have been cheaper). Good points are a nice pool at a good temperature, a separate children's pool, a fully functional gym with new equipment and a good sauna and steam room.

Unfortunately this place is run like a spa, not like a gym, so you often get the music turned down in the gym area so that people sitting at the juice bar can enjoy TV - not motivational when you're running flat out on the treadmill. Also the pool water is often quite a way below the surface so it gets pretty choppy in there!

My biggest issue with this gym is the management though, they are pretty petty about things - my partner who is pregnant was recommended not to use the pool even though the gym instructors know that it's good for a pregnant woman to enjoy a gentle swim to keep fit. On the same day, she was kindly invited to do a few minutes on the recumbent bike (by a gym instructor) to warm up, only to be told to get off by management. On another occasion I requested a locker key in the spa changing rooms (separate from the gym changing) and was denied a key even though I was only coming to use the spa (which requires me to walk through the male spa changing).

This place could be great but unfortunately the management don't know about customer service and are uninformed regarding safe gym use and aren't prepared to listen to their better informed staff.

First off, this gym is not really pitched at expats as it turns out at a whopping $250 per month for a monthly membership. This reduces slightly if you sign up for 12 months but what do you get for your money???
You get a fantastic swimming pool with an amazing view. You get not one, but 2 jacuzzis in your changing room which is almost as large as the gym area itself. You get a fairly large gym area. You get an odd-shaped studio for classes. And finally you get a decent choice of classes to participate in. But all this for $250 a month? Hmmm. In London I could get a gym with a pool for under 100 quid so why the big price tag? Must be to keep riff-raff like me out and the rich Vietnamese in.
Not worth the money. Good luck to anyone who can afford it!
