Neighbourhood: St. Kilda
St. Kilda is an iconic beachside suburb and one of the most culturally and economically diverse of Melbourne’s neighbourhoods. It is a traditional haven for musicians, artists and writers, drawn to the European ambience and fresh ocean breezes. At night, it can have an edgier side, but by day, it features a relaxed vibe – the market stalls, boutiques and outdoor bars display St. Kilda’s easygoing attitude. Ocean winds blow from Port Phillip Bay and waves lap onto its long and mostly deserted beaches. Rides whir at the world’s oldest operational Luna Park. On a lazy weekend morning, bikers cruise along Acland Street, showing off their motorcycles. But the late morning crowds are too busy at brunch to notice. St. Kilda is a perfect place to relax after a night out with friends.

The water isn’t salt from the sea it seems, heavily chlorinated, might as well have just gone to a cheaper pool, very sad about this, as chlorine should not be swam in.

I am a member. Im paying $125 per month. And yet, when there is slightest issue such as a paid for pass not working, there is no one there to help.
Terrible customer service. The pool is nice but honestly I cannot recommend this gym because of its dysfunctional customer service. If you want to try, just assume you are on your own. There is no one there to help of there is a problem.

It's definitely worth having a swim at the sea baths - I'm just not so sure it's worth going back. The place reeks of chlorine... which was the first big surprise. Isn't this supposed to be salt baths? Why not add more salt rather than dump chlorine into the beautiful sea water? Girls at the reception were quite helpful, and life guard was friendly. Pool is rather small really for lapping. The hot spa was full of regulars hogging the jets. Were they wearing bathers or yfronts? I'm not sure, but it felt weird.... Change area was ok, and shower was good pressure. I had to rush though because $6.00 an hour parking and $2.00 locker, and $13.00 swim, the experience adds up quickly!

Since this place was built to the high profit margin standards of builder Bruno Gatzka, the bathroom has struggled to meet 1 star standard, with showers that have uneven pressure, flooring unsuitable for the traffic, broken bits and pieces and a general air of collapse, but finally finally a much needed renovation has put a fresh floor and fittings in the change rooms. The pool is sometimes oversubscribed especially during swim classes for children, but still the best in the area. Steam room is also due for renewal. Best arrive by bike and park at the doorstep otherwise the nearest daytime free parking is behind Acland Street Woolworths and thereabouts. Paid parking nearby is moderate to expensive.

Marisa is a great asset to this gym. She is a perfectionist who insists on good technique and making clients' exercise experiences safe, effective and fun. Her enthusiasm is boundless as she inspires everyone around her to perform their best. She is exceedingly generous with her time, sharing her vast knowledge about exercise technique and remedial exercise after classes (without any sales pitch). She truly loves people and is passionate helping everyone improve their health. If you visit, you'll find her easily - she's the one with the biggest smile, amazing body and energy galore - ready to help and inspire you.

If you are a dedicated lap swimmer this is maybe not the pool for you. This is part of a health club so it's $13 for casual entry to swim but you get access to the hydrospa after your swim. You can walk out the back and swim in the ocean before or after.

I've been coming here for years, and each year it just gets worse. By my last visit in Summer of 2019 the water was rather cool, and almost completely devoid of salt, the bananna lounges keep getting wrecked as do the soap dispensers, and if there is one still hanging on the wall, it is usually empty. The steamroom was rarely cleaned, twice a day I believe according to the poster, just after opening and just before closing (seriously!), while the temperature was not maintained at a steady level. There were holes in the walls of the men's shower area, and even one in the floor! (how does that even happen?!). I haven't been back since and I discouraged my father from visiting this place. I hope that since then they have improved the conditions of the Seabaths. The only thing that this place has left going for itself is the proximity and access to the beach.

Where else can you swim laps in warm, safe salt water pools year-round? Big lap pool and reasonable sized therapeutic pool with jets. Dry sauna and changing rooms for day users on the main floor. Full gym and much larger changing and locker rooms on the second floor if you have a membership. Friendly staff and access to St Kilda beach if you fancy a dip in the ocean.

Unclean and messy. The lockers and showers not clean enough. Lockers dirty inside. Apparently no one clean this area. Staff and bags left on the benches around the pool. Messy and ugly. Some swimming in their underwear.???
A lot of sand at the bottom of the hydro pool.
Impression: unclean. unclean and not worth the money.
Shame on the management.
No wonder so many bad reviews.
