Offering new unique user experiences: Bedok Reservoir Clubhouse makes its debut soon

Members can look forward to an infinity pool, luxurious villas and a high-tech obstacle course at the HomeTeamNS Bedok Reservoir Clubhouse.



Soon, HomeTeamNS members will be able to enjoy a new waterfront clubhouse when HomeTeamNS Bedok Reservoir opens.

Furnished with facilities including a six-lane 50-metre infinity pool, the five-storey clubhouse offers a full view of the Bedok Reservoir Park — a popular spot for jogging and nature enthusiasts. It also aims to provide a unique clubhouse experience, said members of the HomeTeamNS Bedok Reservoir Executive Committee.

“There will be several first-of-its-kind experiences at the clubhouse,” said Mr Bryan Chao, 42, Vice Chairman of the HomeTeamNS Bedok Reservoir Executive Committee. “There will be an indoor water adventure centre, Aqua Adventure, featuring the longest indoor water slide in Singapore that spans four storeys tall, and there’s also an indoor wet obstacle rope course.”

According to Mr Chao, the new clubhouse will feature a laze pool, in which users can float around and relax. “For those who want to enjoy a bit more of the adrenaline rush, they can go for the water slide and obstacle course, while the laze pool allows those who want to relax to have a good time too,” he added.


Executive Committee member, Mr Tan Junwei, 34, also shared that there will be 10 concept Waterfront Villas, known as East Villa. Offering scenic reservoir and lush greenery views, the villas are set on a slope, nestled within forested vegetation and a canopy of trees. “The two storey villas come with a living room and three bedrooms,” said Mr Tan.

He added that: “Apart from the luxurious waterfront view and verdant greenery, the East Villa is certainly a big draw as they also come with sheltered BBQ patios, which are perfect for family gatherings, staycations and weekend getaways.”

These villas will be available for booking on the HomeTeamNS Mobile App when launched. According to Mr Tan, members can also self-check-in at the villas through the app.

For those who enjoy tackling challenges, the Action Motion, a digital active experience arena at the new clubhouse, also offers a unique gamification experience. “With Action Motion, we hope to bring digital play to a whole new level by introducing augmented-reality Bouldering Walls and Trampoline, and the Net Maze, that are all fitted with a gamifier system. All activity scores will be captured in real-time on the Leaderboard, which will enhance the competitive experience for our players,” said HomeTeamNS President, Associate Professor Muhammad Faishal Ibrahim, who is also the Minister of State, Ministry of Home Affairs & Ministry of National Development.

Fitness enthusiasts can enjoy a workout at Fitness Workz Garage. Said to be a crossfit haven, members can try out various programmes such as the Outdoor Group Training and Low Intensity Interval Training (LIIT), that is also suited for GenNext Members.

The reservoir-facing clubhouse is also perfect for members who love organising events and gatherings. If you frequent HomeTeamNS Khatib, you’d be familiar with the ManCaves (a hangout space with amenities like complimentary WiFi, BBQ pits and a built-in kitchenette with a fridge and karaoke system). For large-scale events like weddings, members can hold their reception at the Grand Ballroom which seats up to 400 guests.


PlayFacto School, an enrichment centre for children, offers Robotics and Mathematics classes on weekday nights and weekends.

As the clubhouse is built on a slope facing Bedok Reservoir, the architects also made sustainability a key part of their design concept. The new clubhouse will have a rainwater harvesting and drip-irrigation system to reduce water consumption. About 1,000 sqm of solar photovoltaic (PV) panels will also be set up to offset the building’s energy consumption by an estimated 2 per cent. Charging stations for electric vehicles are also in the pipeline.

Mr Chao shared that the clubhouse has an open promenade to encourage residents and those who frequent Bedok Reservoir to explore and use the clubhouse’s facilities. At the pre-opening roadshow at Our Tampines Hub on 1 October, Assoc Prof Faishal shared the range of facilities will not just cater to our NSmen, but to their families, wives and children. Tenanted facilities including PlayFacto School, Trifecta Martial ArtsYoga Inc, and The Dance Station will be available at the new clubhouse.

There’s also a 24-hour 7-eleven convenience store and a range of Halal and non-Halal F&B options including Sum Dim SumSri Bistari, Fun Toast, Burger King, George’s Bar, and Xiao Mu Deng restaurants.

In The Force

A passion for life that never burns out

Meet SGT1 (V) Sam Martinez, a Civil Defence Auxiliary Unit (CDAU) volunteer firefighter who has somehow cracked the code to a life well-lived.



One can only dream of living as vibrantly as SGT1 (V) Sam Martinez, who is a volunteer Firefighter under the Civil Defence Auxiliary Unit (CDAU) in the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF). Amid his busy career and volunteer role, SGT1 (V) Sam has somehow cracked the code to living life – he works and volunteers while enjoying several exciting hobbies – like freediving and motorcycle riding, to name a few.


A first encounter with freediving turned into love at first sight for SGT1 (V) Sam. He had been enchanted by the watersport when he first came across it on YouTube in 2019. Ever since then, his love story — like most others — truly began when he acted on it.

SGT1 (V) Sam said: “I saw a video of two freedivers in the turquoise waters. The elegance and serenity of it immediately struck a chord. My first introduction to the sport was in the pool at Our Tampines Hub. That first lesson had students do little more than breathing exercises and a static breath-hold.” When asked to elaborate, he explained: “You can think of it as floating face down while holding onto the pool edge breath-hold.” As he recounted the memory, his eyes lit up with joy and with an awestruck smile on his face, he continued: “And… I loved it.”

The pandemic had nothing on him: it may have forced him to pause, but he emerged with a certificate for the watersport in Yucatan, Mexico early this year!


SGT1 (V) Sam is also a motorcycle rider. His love for motorcycling stemmed from the sport’s carefree nature. He experienced this freedom himself when he rode his motorcycle in northern Thailand and the region’s popular Mae Hong Son loop in February 2020.

When asked what he liked best about motorcycling, he elaborates: “There is something incredibly liberating about riding up and down twisting mountain roads without a care in the world. Passing through villages, stopping by roadside stalls on chilly mornings for a steaming cup of coffee. Good memories, guaranteed!”

SGT1 (V) Sam’s athletic skills aren’t just for play, but to help others too. He receives training for Firefighting, Search and Rescue, Hazmat and First Aid from the CDAU Firefighting and Rescue Vocation. While excelling in just about anything he sets his mind to, SGT1 (V) Sam remains grounded and humble.

For him, the openness and professionalism of the Central Fire Station frontliners made his work there memorable. He appreciates their patience and dedication in explaining routine procedures and the use of equipment. As SGT1 (V) Sam aptly sums up: “The people make all the difference.”

He also touches people’s hearts through his volunteer work. When asked if he has any words of encouragement for interested parties to volunteer for HTVN, SGT1 (V) Sam says: “I’ll borrow the slogan from a well-known sports brand for this one — Just Do It! Life is good, so let’s give something back to society.”
