Virgin Active Opening in Botswana with Luxury Sauna and Steam Rooms from VAJA

Virgin Active, one of South Africa’s most well established health club companies has further extended its reach into Africa with the opening of its first health club in Gaborone, Botswana. With 121 clubs in SA and two in Namibia, the Botswana club marks an exciting new direction into Africa. Situated in the Airport Junction Mall, the eagerly-anticipated 3200 sqm venue boasts a wide range of state-of-the-art equipment and top quality facilities, including a four-lane training/lap  pool,  two multi-purpose fitness studios and changing areas equipped with steam and sauna rooms. The purpose built health club caters for all ages and fitness levels with qualified personal trainers available to assist in reaching personal health and fitness goals.


VAJA has a long-standing relationship with Virgin Active supplying the brand with high-quality saunas and steam rooms for their elite fitness establishments. We were, therefore, pleased to be contacted once again, to install luxury saunas and steam rooms, into their new Botswana branch, that would not only meet their member’s needs but to also provide a tranquil place for their members to relax and rejuvenate.  After receiving the specifications from the Virgin Active designers, we set out to complete the exclusive installation. Installing two built-in elite sauna’s, using spruce tongue and groove panels for the walls and ceiling, with Obeche for the benches and an 18kw Helo Heater. For the stream rooms we installed our top of the range Luxury Nordmann AT4D 2364 steam generator with our I-bond white high gloss aluminium ceiling panels, complete with our LED strip lighting. We believe in always going above and beyond to meet our client’s expectations and thus our team went full steam ahead to complete the intense installation in only 4 days, from the 19th – 22nd of November.   

Here at VAJA our client’s needs always come first, there is no job to big or deadline that is too tight. We will work around the clock to ensure that we not only meet your expectations but that we blow them out of the water. We would like to thank all of our staff members who made this installation possible and to thank Virgin Active for giving us the opportunity to install luxury saunas and steam rooms to treat your members to a health experience like no other.
