Description
Named after the internationally acclaimed New Zealand soprano, Dame Malvina Major, the Malvina Major Retirement Village provides a full range of retirement lifestyle options along with the very best of resthome and hospital care from our friendly, caring staff.

Located on Burma Road in Khandallah, the village enjoys breathtaking views overlooking the Ngauranga Gorge and across the Wellington Harbour. The village also has three impressive internal Atriums, so residents can enjoy the ambience of a lush outdoor environment all year round.

The village features the latest designs in retirement living including Independent Apartments, Serviced Apartments and a Care Centre set amongst beautifully landscaped gardens.

The resort-style facilities include an indoor heated swimming pool and spa, library, bowling green, gymnasium, movie theatre, dining rooms, bars, lounges and even a hair and beauty salon! There is so much for residents to enjoy, along with many outings and events.

Living at Malvina Major Retirement Village isn't about slowing down, it's about having time to do so much more!

We welcome your call.
