Venue Crush: Saint Haven is the Luxury Club in Melbourne Redefining Wellness

Saint Haven in Melbourne is redefining wellness with this exciting members-only offering.

When we typically think of a members-only club, it's hard not to associate a cliquey group of men smoking pipes and playing cards. But Saint Haven in Collingwood, Melbourne is flipping that dated notion on its head with its groundbreaking new private club, which focuses on social connection, wellness and anti-ageing with the overall goal to help members live their ultimate life.

The stunning space, which has catered to each and every detail, from UV-treated air, and filtered water stations to limited blue-light exposure, is an alcohol-free zone that encourages diversity.

The brainchild of luxury property developer Tim Gurner, the club was created to give people an alternative to old, stuffy clubs, where they can socialise, work and play in the ultimate playground of luxury and wellness. Inspired by the world’s best five-star hotels, Saint Haven is a safe space where like-minded people can not only work towards optimal health but meet, learn and connect with others.

The membership process involves a five-stage application process complete with interviews focused on the prospective member’s commitment and goals in wellness, whether they would fit the culture of Saint Haven and their desire to be part of a focused wellness community of like-minded people.

“We wanted to create a luxury exclusive club where one day you might be sitting next to one of Australia’s leading banking executives, then a hip hop musician or a local artist the next," Saint Haven founder and director, Gurner Group CEO Tim Gurner explains. 

"This is not a club for Instagram profiles, this is a very private club for members that fosters special relationships and connections shared together over a mutual goal of creating the ultimate life."

Saint Haven: The Membership

Joining the Saint Haven community means you're treated to the entire spectrum of wellness – from the latest bio-hacking and anti-ageing technology to relaxation, breathwork, mindfulness, strength and conditioning, and recovery treatments alongside an organic wholefoods restaurant and personalised 6-star hotel-style service, to deliver a world-first dedication to private wellness for members.

Saint Haven members will have access to programs designed by world-leading mentors, hand-picked by Gurner Group CEO and Saint Haven founder Tim Gurner, bringing a level of expertise and wisdom that isn’t currently available to consumers. 

Saint Haven also has beautiful co-working spaces, lounges, and a Haven Wholefoods nutrition bar for members to enjoy. 

And once you leave the sanctuary that is Saint Haven, the Saint Haven Members' App means they can continue to unlock their best selves at home with workouts, nutrition and recovery based on the data collected via the personalised Oura rings — it will also enable members to order meals and tonics to enjoy after their wellness experience.

Saint Haven: The Treatments

Saint Haven’s unique approach to recovery and anti-ageing combines science-backed programs and world-renowned technology and equipment with ancient wisdom, bringing together progressive health and wellbeing treatments previously only found in the world’s most exclusive health retreats. 

Think about the perfect ancient bathhouse with purified ice-cold plunge pools and thermal mineral-infused pools, sauna and steam rooms, and a menu of globally leading anti-ageing treatments ranging from IV infusions, cryotherapy, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, red light therapy, through to breathwork classes in the meditation cave and a range of practitioner treatments across multiple health disciplines. 

The club takes design cues from northern Italy’s ancient grottos and spas, New York’s private clubs and Thailand’s health retreats, alongside the SOHO House model, meaning members can experience all of their world-class benefits under one roof. 

Saint Haven: The Interiors

Behind the club’s sleek design is Gurner Group’s head Interior Design Director, Simon Brugaletta. Drawing inspiration from his time in Italy, Saint Haven's internal spaces embrace the balanced, harmonious interiors found in Northern Italy’s bathhouses.

Throughout the club, no detail has been overlooked  from the personalised health data collected via the Oura ring to bespoke training and recovery programs, to the reverse-osmosis filtered water that permeates through steam rooms and club showers; every aspect has been carefully curated by the dedicated team.

Memberships range from $150 for a standard membership to $1500 per week for unlimited access.
