Princess Alexandra Village offers living choices to suit everyone, so residents can live the way they want and blaze their own trails. Our apartments and 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 apartments and a 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.

Ahuriri is one of the first areas to be settled in Napier and is steeped in history. Once the main port you can now dine at one of the numerous restaurants or pop into one of the specialist stores.
Located in the heart of Napier, MTG (Museum, Theatre, Gallery) is a place to experience and enjoy local and national exhibitions. The museum includes a large permanent exhibit on the 1931 earthquake.
Take an easy stroll along the tracks and boardwalks of the Ahuriri Estuary, home to a diverse range of birds, aquatic plant life and fish.
That’s why each Ryman village is named after a Kiwi or Aussie trailblazer. Anthony Wilding, Lady Diana Isaac, Evelyn Page to name a few. They lived with passion and purpose, they pushed further, they went beyond the ordinary. That’s exactly what we strive to do every day at Ryman. To pioneer a new way of living, for a new retirement generation.
