Thank you for downloading The Ultimate Guide to New Zealand Retirement Villages. We have emailed you a copy so you can refer to it as needed.
The Bay of Plenty is a popular region to retire. Home to cities such as Rotorua and Tauranga, as well as the suburbs of Papamoa and Bethlehem, there’s plenty of great locations to choose from. Whether you’re looking to retire near the beach, in a vibrant township, or in a peaceful rural setting, the Bay of Plenty could be a great choice.
You’ll find most major retirement village operators in the region, including Oceania, Bupa, Metlifecare, Arvida, Ryman, and Summerset. There are also several boutique villages that are independently owned and operated.
The cost of buying a licence to occupy a retirement village unit in the Bay of Plenty depends on a number of factors, including the location of the village, the facilities and services available, and the type of home you’d like to live in. To get a high-level idea of pricing, our guide to retirement village costs is a good place to start.
It’s normal to have lots of questions about retirement village living. Our retirement village FAQs are here to help. You’ll find information about most topics, including property types, fees, paperwork, and care options.
Not all retirement living is created equal. For some people, independent living is the perfect fit — for others, assisted living or residential care is required. If you require residential care, search Bay of Plenty Rest Homes in our directory.
