A village surrounded by award-winning gardens

Princess Alexandra Village is located in Ahuriri in a wonderful setting with stunning views of the neighbouring reserve and there’s a lifestyle option to suit everyone. You can choose from a townhouse, an independent apartment or the extra support of an assisted-living apartment. If your needs change over time, our state-of-the-art care centre provides 108 care rooms offering rest home, hospital and specialist dementia care. Princess Alexandra care centre is located within the same village community and, as a Ryman resident, you will have priority access over non-residents at the time of your transfer. Should a space for the type of care the village offers be unavailable at the time of your transfer, we will do our best to accommodate you at another Ryman village that provides the level of care you need* until a space becomes available at Princess Alexandra Village.

The amenities include an all-weather bowling green, indoor heated swimming pool, spa, grand internal atrium, library, gym, hair salon, bar and shop.

There is always something to do; from organised events and shopping trips, to activities that inspire movement. The measure of a full life at Princess Alexandra Village is certainly one that will get richer with age. 

*Care options vary between villages, please check with our team for details of the care offered at each village.

OUR NAMESAKE

 

PrincessAlexandra-Photo-350x350

Each Ryman village is named in honour of a Kiwi or Aussie trailblazer: Anthony Wilding, Lady Diana Isaac, Evelyn Page. They pushed further and set the bar high for others to aspire to. In creating communities that challenge the expectations of ageing, Ryman villages are also setting the bar high. They’re demonstrating that a retirement lifestyle brimming with new experiences, connections and fulfilment is something we should aspire to. Our Kiwi and Aussie namesakes represent the measure of inspiration, while Ryman villages represent the measure of retirement living.

Her Royal Highness Princess Alexandra celebrated the opening of the original hospital by attending the Jaycee Charity Ball in Napier, April 1971.
