In the heart of Remuera

It’s no coincidence that our Edmund Hillary Village is named in honour of one of New Zealand’s most pioneering sons. As Ryman’s flagship village, it’s grand in appearance and set in prestigious Remuera amidst 25 acres of beautiful gardens. However, like our namesake, it also has a humble and caring side, because it’s a place where community and connection thrive.

Residents often tell us how proud they are to live at the village, whether they’ve lived in the surrounding suburbs all their lives or have moved there to retire. It’s evident in the enthusiasm residents bring to the many events and activities held at the village. They love the lifestyle because the village provides them with a supportive and caring place to call home, while offering the gateway to everything Remuera has to offer. It’s certainly a place where you can live life to the full.

Ryman Pioneers Freedom

Edmund Hillary Village offers living choices to suit everyone, so residents can live the way they want and blaze their own trails. Our one, two and three-bedroom apartments and two and three-bedroom townhouses are light and spacious, with clean lines and a clever open plan design layout that provides an easy flow throughout.

If down the track you need more support, we offer assisted living in a serviced apartment and a full range of care options. That freedom and flexibility is empowering for residents and knowing care can be dialled up as needed means, quite simply, ‘no worries’. It's all part of what we like to call the Ryman Difference


Our pioneering approach to retirement living includes resident-friendly terms designed to protect you and your family. Our base weekly fee is fixed for the entire time you occupy your apartment or townhouse*, and our deferred management fee is capped at 20 percent – one of the lowest in the retirement sector.

These are just some of the ways we’re pioneering a new way of living for a new retirement generation.

*Some conditions apply. 


Enjoy all the upsides of living independently in a Ryman village. Easy living, security, plus a huge bonus – the support of a vibrant village community.


Serviced apartments come with support you can count on. A chef-prepared meal, housekeeping – it's great for you and reassuring for your family.  


It's hard to put your finger on why Ryman villages just feel different. For the inside knowledge, check out our guide.

Pioneers Care


Care is not an ‘add on’ at a Ryman village, it is built into the fabric of our villages from the very beginning. It’s comforting for couples and friends to know they can still be near each other even if their health needs are different.

Edmund Hillary care centre offers a full range of care options including resthome, hospital and specialist dementia care. Like all aspects of our villages, we constantly look for ways to improve both the care we provide and the innovation behind it. Care is customised using our myRyman care app and residents love the food in our seasonal Delicious menu, which is prepared fresh on site by village chefs. 

Edmund Hillary is one of over 80 percent of Ryman villages that have been awarded 4-year certification by the Ministry of Health. It’s recognised as the ‘gold star’ standard in care.
