Luxury, epitomised: The Helier by Oceania reimagines later life living
The Helier by Oceania is lifting the bar for New Zealand later life living, offering a luxurious experience comparable to living in a 5-star hotel.

The Helier by Oceania is reimagining the future of later life living in a way that has not been seen before in New Zealand.

This is a time to relish the fruits of our labour and to discover pleasures old and new. After working hard for so long, it’s rewarding to step back from the hustle and bustle, relax in comfort and perhaps enjoy more of the activities you’ve been looking forward to. 

Oceania is reconceptualising the future of retirement living and aged care. It’s in their nature to always strive for better and to help enhance people’s lives, and their new luxury residences at The Helier embody that reimagined future of later life living. 

“The amazing opportunity for residents to come into The Helier is that it will be like living in a five-star hotel every day,” says General Manager Olivier Lacoua.  “So that’s one of the outstanding differences compared to any other retirement village that is available in New Zealand.”

Located in the heart of St Heliers on the edge of Glover Park, The Helier offers 360-degree views over Waitematā Harbour and Auckland’s CBD. It’s the scenery that makes living in Auckland so special, and The Helier by Oceania takes full advantage of this stunning panorama.

Providing beauty both outside and in, The Helier’s apartments boast bespoke details and are fitted out with quality materials and finishes. Light, bright and with a classic coastal feel that perfectly complements the views and location, The Helier’s residences are a stylish canvas for you to make your own.

While aesthetics are definitely important, it’s the amenities and services that take The Helier from lovely to luxury. The high-end hotel experience begins the moment you arrive at the door, thanks to valet parking. The in-house concierge service allows residents to experience their own city in new and exciting ways, and a personal chauffeur is on hand for transportation. 

“It could be just down the road to the local dairy, or further afield to their favourite golf course or art gallery exhibition – we will have a very personalised individual service for our residents,” explains Lacoua.

Naturally, health and wellbeing is front and centre at The Helier. A private gym and internal swimming pool make it simple to maintain fitness, while the spa pool and luxurious day spa will help residents to relax and unwind. 

The location of the complex itself also promotes an active lifestyle – situated in one of Auckland’s most picturesque suburbs, there are myriad scenic strolls and hikes in the vicinity.

There is much to enjoy for gastronomes at The Helier. Dining opportunities include a café, bar, restaurant and a comfortable dining area, and wine lovers can make use of an exclusive wine library. “There will be activity around food and beverage,” says Lacoua. “We’re hoping that we’ll have some local vineyards come and showcase their beautiful premium wine to our residents, and obviously we’ll have some space to store some of their wines.”

While the on-site restaurant will be open throughout the day, an executive chef service will also be available to deliver a culinary experience to residents in the comfort of their apartments. “The executive chef can come to their apartment to cook for any private dinners that they host,” says Lacoua.

Through these first-class services and facilities, The Helier allows its residents to maintain the luxurious and independent lifestyles they are accustomed to and value highly. The range of living options include two-bedroom apartments and two-bedroom apartments with an added flexible third room. There are also care residences for those seeking a little more support. The Helier’s Private Care Residences provide premium healthcare, within luxurious surrounds. The Helier goes much deeper than just aesthetics – it’s a level of care that’s second to none.

This boutique private nursing model is unique to The Helier, and provides residents with bespoke, personalised care while maintaining utmost comfort and enjoyment, thanks to The Helier’s premier hospitality-led services.
