We're passionate about creating communities where residents thrive - where there’s joy and lifelong friendships. And we’re not slowing down…you have voted us New Zealand’s Most Trusted Brand again this year – for the tenth time!

At Kiri Te Kanawa Retirement Village, we’re dedicated to caring for you now and into your future. Your health needs may change over time and if they do, Kiri Te Kanawa Village provides a range of care options to assist you.

We provide independent living and assisted-living apartments, as well as rest home, hospital and specialist dementia care.

Providing a range of living and care options is just one of Ryman’s points of difference.

When Ryman Healthcare was founded over 35 years ago, our co-founder Kevin Hickman thought about what he’d want for his own mother. He set one simple standard for the care we provide:
It’s got to be good enough for Mum.

Today, we not only uphold that same standard, we continue to raise the bar in retirement living and aged care.

Ryman offer some of the most resident-friendly and transparent terms in Australasia, with agreements written in plain language so they are easy for everyone to understand.

The deferred management fee gives you the right to occupy your unit and enjoy village amenities. Ryman’s standard deferred management fee is capped at 20% of your occupancy advance across our apartments and townhouses*.

Leading innovation is something that Ryman are becoming renowned for. Our seasonal Delicious menu is made fresh on site by in-house village chefs. If you ever feel like letting someone else doing the cooking, you can choose from three main courses, including a vegetarian option. We also cater for special dietary requirements.

Just like our Delicious meals, our individually frozen meals are made fresh, using only natural ingredients. The ready-to-eat meals are very reasonably priced and are available to purchase from the village reception.

We’ve developed our own ACC accredited Triple A exercise programme. Catering for all ability levels, this free programme improves strength, balance and mobility. Our Engage activities programme provides events and activities for residents, such as the weekly Happy Hour, arts and crafts, and outings in the village van.

Having daily activities and events to look forward to, combined with a friendly village environment, is what life is all about. It’s those moments of shared joy and laughter. Because at Ryman villages, we create the kind of community that our residents grew up in – connected and caring.

Located off Potae Avenue in Lytton West, the village enjoys a beautiful rural outlook with a view of Young Nicks Head.

Apartments and townhouses are designed with the over 70s in mind. Their spacious, well-considered layouts include kitchens and bathrooms that make daily life easy for you. For your peace of mind, call bells are monitored 24 hours a day by on-site staff, and we have 24-hour security to ensure your safety at all times.

Amenities include an all-weather bowling green, petanque court, indoor heated swimming pool, spa, library, gymnasium, hair and beauty salon, shop and bar.

As a Ryman village, we've won the Reader’s Digest Trusted Brand: Aged Care and Retirement Villages award eight times. And we’ve been awarded the gold medal seven times in the Reader’s Digest Quality Service award.

Kiri Te Kanawa is one of over 90% of established Ryman villages that have been awarded 4-year certification by the Ministry of Health. It’s recognised as the ‘gold standard’ in care.

The Lifestyle at Kiri Te Kanawa Retirement Village has so many wonderful aspects. However, we appreciate that everyone has different needs and expectations. Which is why we encourage you to come and visit.

Compare Ryman terms with other retirement village providers, find out what care options they provide for the future, and join in with the activities or events on offer. That way, you’ll obtain a real appreciation of village lifestyle, and whether you can see yourself living there.

We look forward to introducing you to our wonderful community.
