Massive “resort-style” club & spa planned for busy corridor

Idaho Central Credit Union Business Banking

VillaSport has applied for approval with the City of Meridian to build a large 99,000 square foot gym/spa/pool(s)/bar/restaurant/social club in Meridian.

The project, if built as proposed, would be the largest private health club in the Boise valley by a significant margin. For example, the Axiom Fitness on ParkCenter Blvd. is less than half the size of VillaSport. It rivals the size of the West Family YMCA in Boise, though with a significantly larger outdoor facility.

The project is proposed for an L-shaped parcel on the SW corner of Eagle Rd. and Ustick Rd. It would wrap around another empty lot on the corner (which is currently home to the Seasonal Adventures pumpkin & tree lot).

VillaSport is a resort-style athletic club and spa offering a unique combination of luxury amenities and the finest state-of-the-art equipment and programs for the entire family,” Tamara Thompson with The Land Group wrote in an application to the City of Meridian

The chain currently has opened or is working on locations in Oregon, California, Texas and Colorado.

The site plan submitted to the City of Meridian is similar to this one in Beaverton, OR. Via VillaSport.com.

    • A second, separate outdoor pool with 25-yard lap lanes will be available for adults only. This area will have an additional whirlpool, plus private cabanas, firepit, and bar
    • Inside, two more pools are planned – plus separate whirlpools located with the locker room facilities
  • Food & Drink
    • A poolside bar, plus a separate indoor cafe. The cafe will feature coffee, smoothies, snacks, and meals. The Portland-area location features flatbreads, quesadillas and breakfast sandwiches

    • Circuit training

  • Spa
    • Massage rooms, body treatments, facials, waxing, spray tanning, manicures and pedicures
    • Couples services, ladies nights and “Manicures with Mommy”
    • While much of the club will be for members, the spa facility will offer services to the general public, according to the permit application materials
  • Kids
    • Indoor and outdoor area for kids
    • Art & dance studios

The project is set for a December 20th hearing for a conditional use permit in front of the City of Meridian’s Planning & Zoning Commission.  The CUP is needed to allow the facility to be open before 5am – plans call for VillaSport to be open from 4am-1am seven days per week.
