Pioneering retirement living

Founded in Canterbury in 1984, Ryman has been pioneering retirement living in New Zealand for more than 35 years. We always have, and always will, challenge the status quo, and adapt to better serve our residents. And right now, that pioneering spirit is more important than ever, because there’s a new generation of Kiwis who are not retiring from life, they’re looking for a new way to live. Read more.

With an interactive village 'walk through', you can almost reach out and touch. 

Immerse yourself in our beautiful village by taking a ‘walk through’ with our virtual tours. Stroll through the lovely gardens, explore our village amenities, and step into our beautiful townhouses, apartments or care rooms. You can navigate your way through each featured room or area of the village and really get a feel for the space, all in the comfort of your own home. It’s a great way to obtain a more intricate view before you make a visit to the village.
