Watch panoramic sunrises and sunsets across the harbour all the way to the Kaimai Ranges from the comfort of your home at Bethlehem Shores. Each unique home has been tastefully designed with both privacy and entertaining in mind and residents have exclusive access to the largest retirement community clubhouse in New Zealand - unrivalled in terms of size and communal facilities on offer.

Living at Bethlehem Shores is like living in a five star resort! You can enjoy the latest movies in our stylish 50 seat theatre, take a spin across the chevron oak dance floor, unwind at the piano bar, enjoy a meal at our café, or curl up with a good book beside the schist stone fireplace in the library. Motorhome parking is also available for those who love road trips, and for home lovers, our new 20m x 8m heated swimming pool will soon be open, alongside a fully equipped gym and shower facilities, hairdresser, massage and manicure rooms.

A new vision for retirement

Living well and doing what you love

How would you like to continue to live well in retirement, enjoying the lifestyle you’ve always dreamed would be yours? Bethlehem Shores is a very special community located in one of Tauranga’s most sought-after suburbs, with shopping centre, medical facilities, cafes and walking tracks close by. Friends and family are welcome to visit and our facilities and help us maintain our connection with the wider community.

We want residents to feel younger for longer and actively engaged in life. Bethlehem Shores is therefore a welcoming, inclusive community where the relationships and interests developed over a lifetime are treasured and nurtured.

Social wellbeing on a grand scale!

Our Clubhouse is the hub for social activities in the community. The building’s cathedral-like scale and grandeur comes from its 8m-high atrium in the middle of the building and the extensive use of South Island schist stone and oak timber throughout. We have a 50 seat movie theatre, a dance floor, library, billiards room, piano bar, dining facilities and an aerobics room and our heated indoor swimming pool will also open alongside a gymnasium, hairdresser, massage and manicure services. Note some of these facilities are currently under construction.

Our café also seats up to 150 people. With sweeping views over Tauranga Harbour and a large patio area, it’s a warm and welcoming place to catch up with friends and family. The Cafe is also available for residents to hire for private functions, making it the ideal spot to host a special event.
