Situated in a semi-rural setting on the edge of Rotorua, it’s just a short drive from The Gardens to local shops or down to the Lake. Lots of outside seating is available for you to sit with your family and enjoy the colourful delights of our garden and its tranquil atmosphere.

We’re passionate about food and take pride in producing meals that are both delicious and well-presented. Your family are always welcome to join us for a meal or for one of our performances from local entertainers.

Features of The Gardens:

• Friendly to make you feel at home.

• 24 hour assistance.

• Outdoor spaces to enjoy while you relax.

• Space for some quiet time.

• Communal dining room.

There’s constantly something going on here, whether it’s bingo, cooking class, a school performance, a trip to Tauranga to look at the cruise ships or to Taupo to visit Prawn Park. We also have pamper days for the women and building projects for the men. It’s your choice whether or not you want to take part though, we will always respect your wishes. View times and dates for our upcoming activities.

We’re extremely proud of our Mai Moa Wing, the first Maori immersion unit in the country where we provide care that is based around traditional principals of Maori Health. We speak your language, respect your traditions and provide culturally appropriate food. There’s a whanau room if your family would like to be close to you.

Our special care offered in our Mai Moa wing at the Bupa Gardens, respects Maori traditions, and brings together the four cornerstones of Maori Health. 



  • Whanau (family health)

  • Tinana (physical health)

  • Hinengaro (mental health) and

  • Wairua (spiritual health)

We plan each step of care in partnership with Whanau. The person in your care will be cared for by our staff who have full knowledge of Maori health and wellbeing. We understand Whanau is important, so your Whanau are welcome to visit or to stay at any time. Professional care Our credentials are right up to date. You can inspect our audit report on the Bupa website. It makes positive note of our recognition of Maori values and beliefs. You can be confident that the best care will be provided.
