The new club is located on the former site of the Mauritskadebad pool, which dates back to 1883


Caesar Fitness & Spa Resort is set to open in The Hague, Netherlands, in December. The 4,400sq m, city centre club occupies the


former site of the Mauritskadebad, the first covered swimming pool in the Netherlands, and the core of the building is a reconstruction of the 1883 baths. The original cast iron columns and some decorative details will be used, combining both new and old architecture. Owned by Dutch fitness entrepreneur Hans


van Os, who also funded the development, the club is designed to offer a full fitness and spa in the heart of the city. The holistic philosophy focuses on ‘awareness training’, encouraging members to listen to and understand their own mind and body. The offering combines physical training and relaxation in a bid to


leave members in-tune with themselves, both mentally and physically. Membership of the premium club costs €120 every four weeks. The 1,500sq m Life Fitness-equipped fitness


suite includes a gym, mind-body studio, aerobics studio, group cycling area, free weight zone and spacious changing rooms. The 1,500sq m spa offers four different


saunas – including a 35-person capacity Kelo sauna – plus a steamroom, hammam, rasul, whirlpool and cold plunge pool. There’s also a 20m x 10m swimming pool, relaxation area, restaurant and lounge. Alongside this are 400sq m of beauty facilities. The concept has been 15 years in the


making, and van Os has not ruled out similar developments in the future.
