GURNER Group Unveils Saint Haven Spinoff

Saint Haven

Saint Haven’s sister concept is less performance, more party.

What’s happening: Australian development company GURNER Group is readying SAINT, a social wellness club for over-25s designed as a “high-end playground of health, connection and revelry”.

Debuting in Melbourne’s St Kilda this September, it’s planning to open ~10 sites in the next two years, before scaling internationally in the US and Europe.

Healthy hedonism. Swapping boozy nights for sober socials, R&R and targeted training, SAINT members can choose between two experiences.

  • White. Its relaxation-focused level features longevity clinic Haven, along with breathwork classes, a wholefoods café with drinks, DJ booth and co-working.
  • Black. Its dark-aesthetic, high-energy basement level features the gym floor and six group fitness concepts, plus a lounge for meet-ups and movies.

Built with “natural highs” in mind, SAINT is designed to engage young elites for up to eight hours per visit. Personalising individual performance, members can opt for a WHOOP wristband synced to the club’s app.

Well-equipped. Luxury to the core, GURNER is building out a wellness empire.

Last May, it launched wellness club Saint Haven Melbourne, with two additional sites on the way and Sydney to follow. And in March, it announced plans for Elysium Fields, a wellness and longevity-focused neighbourhood.

Going big, the brand projects revenue from its wellness segment to hit ~A$300M in the next six years.

Looking ahead: Between SAINT and Saint Haven, GURNER appeals to high-spenders across four generations, from Gen Z to boomers. While club membership is capped, experiences like these are in demand the world over – putting other operators on notice.
