New Hobbies For Retirement Village Residents

Aged Care Mount Maunganui

Are you wondering what hobbies are available to enjoy once you have retired? When you choose the sustainable retirement village Tauranga residents prefer, you open yourself up to a whole world of great hobby options. There is so much joy and fufillment to be discovered in retirement, and at Pacific Lakes Village, you get resort-style living and a retirement village that provides a multitude of resources to learn and grow in fresh new ways.

Outdoor pursuits

Many retirement village residents love to spend time in the great outdoors, and at Pacific Lakes Village, we are blessed with a peaceful lakeside environment that has been designed to work sustainably with the surrounding environs. 

Part of our eco-friendly ethos is providing raised gardening beds for our sustainable senior living Tauranga residents, a place to grow vegetables for meals, or space to add colour to your life with some gorgeous blooms. You can feed yourself and your visitors with fresh produce grown with your own hands - plus, we have a modern, clean composting system to ensure the soil remains healthy and our organic waste is taken care of mindfully.

Fuel for pleasure

Blooms are a bit of a theme here, with our Bloom Lounge & Eatery providing an onsite cosy cafe to meet friends for relaxation, or a quiet space to enjoy reading your paper or the latest novel. It’s a great place to fuel up as you head out for a walk around the lakes or head to the Sumich Chaplin-designed Lake House to socialise with other retirement residents from our Papamoa Lifestyle Village.

Along with this relaxed cafe providing gorgeous breakfast and lunch options, both naughty and nice, you can bring your visitors to The Grill. This is a brasserie-style eatery with some delectable treats whipped up by the internationally-travelled chef. Sit back, or celebrate with Surf n Turf, House Cured Salmon or many other foodie delights provided with fresh, locally sourced ingredients where possible.

Let the games begin!

Many retirement village residents at our stunning Mt Maunganui location have come to us with a desire to stay fit, and for some retirement residents, that means competition! Along with excellent aquatic facilities, Pacific Lakes Village has pétanque and pickleball courts, and a full-size green-weave bowling green.

Whether you would rather spend the day relaxing in the winter garden of our sustainable retirement village’s grounds with a friend and a pack of cards, or you prefer to get a tournament going, there is a hobby space for all the retirement residents at Pacific Lakes Village.

Fitness as a hobby

One of the fantastic things about becoming a resident of a retirement village - and there are many - is the fact that you now have the gift of time to pursue any hobby you wish. Lots of retirement village residents have fitness goals that they are working toward, and when you join Pacific Lakes Village, you get access to the Cardio Suite and the Outdoor Fitness Circuit, plus the beautiful white sands of Mount Maunganui beckon many for a stroll - or even a surf!

Our reciprocal agreement with Pacific Coast Village means all our retirement residents have access to the fabulous 25-metre heated indoor pool and adjacent spa. If you hadn’t thought of swimming as a hobby, perhaps now is the time to consider it.

Art for art's sake 

A hobby that many of our sustainable retirement village residents bring with them is the joy found in creating a piece of art or craft. We have a fully equipped art studio for those who love to dabble, and even if you have never picked up a paintbrush, you may find this a particularly relaxing spot to spend some solitary hours, or get together with friends for a crafting session.
