A village to enhance this perfect location 

Ryman’s proposed Taupō Village will be set along Acacia Bay Road in Nukuhau. Featuring stunning views of Lake Taupō and the mountains, our Taupō Village will make a perfect addition to this popular retirement destination.

To make the most of this spectacular location, the village centre, café and bar will have an open plan design that overlooks the bowling green and out towards the lake and mountains. Manicured gardens will surround the village along with townhouses peppered throughout that will feature a contemporary design aesthetic with gable roofs.

This beautiful new village will provide independent living in townhouses, assisted-living apartments, as well as a state-of-the-art care centre that includes resthome, hospital and specialist dementia care. So, if down the track your health needs change, we can continue looking after you.

As for convenience, Taupō town centre is only 1.7km from the village where you’ll find all the shops and amenities you could possibly need. As for a little weekend entertainment, Huka Falls and Taupō Golf Club are both less than a 10-minute drive from the village.

You’ll love the lock-and-leave lifestyle, the feeling of camaraderie, and the endless activities and events available. It’s a lifestyle you can thrive in, and for those local to the area, it’s the perfect opportunity to enjoy our village within your local village.

The measure of a full life at Taupo Village is certainly one that will get richer with age.

Independent and assisted living


Our Taupō Village will offer living choices to suit everyone, so residents can live the way they want and blaze their own trails. Our townhouses will be 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 will offer assisted-living apartments and a full range of care options. The freedom and flexibility this provides is empowering for residents and knowing care can be dialed 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 standard deferred management fee is capped at 20 percent – one of the lowest in the retirement sector.

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.


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

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 they’re health needs are different.

Our Taupō care centre will offer 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.
