The Clubhouse at Bethlehem Shores offers socialising on a grand scale!
The Clubhouse at Bethlehem Shores is the hub for social activities in the village. The building has been described as “cathedral-like” in its scale and grandeur thanks to an 8m-high atrium running down the middle of the building and the extensive use of South Island schist stone and oak timber.
The Clubhouse features a 50 seat movie theatre, dance floor, library, billiards room, piano bar, dining facilities and an aerobics room. Later in 2019 a 20m x 8m heated indoor swimming pool will also open alongside a gymnasium, hairdresser, massage and manicure rooms.
One of the Clubhouses most popular features is the café which seats up to 150 people. With sweeping views over Tauranga Harbour and a large patio area it’s a fantastic place to catch with friends. The Cafe is also available for residents to hire for private functions making it the ideal place to host a special event.

What our residents say
Resident of Bethlehem Shores
“This is a great place to enjoy your retirement. It’s a family-owned company so it’s not like a corporate-owned village where rules and regulations come first.
The friendly nature of the residents has led to us working together as a community, sharing our lives and enjoying social activities, sports, arts and outings. Yet the village layout offers privacy as if living in your own home. We are just down the road from the Bethlehem Town Centre making this a truly easy lifestyle.”
Geraldine & Mick McLean
Residents of Bethlehem Shores
“Part of our family is a much loved Labrador therefore one of our first questions was what is your policy on animals?’ ‘Non replacement’ was the professional reply. ‘Could have problems with an elephant’ was the added quip, at which point I thought ‘this will be good’.
Our home is of a very high standard and with added outdoor roofing and multiple glass sliders we enjoy wonderful indoor, outdoor flow. Guests who stay enjoy their separate facilities and are envious of our lovely home.”
Merv & Berny Hunger
Residents of Bethlehem Country Club
“Whenever we have bought property the number one consideration has always been location. Bethlehem Country Club is superb because of its proximity to a very good shopping centre, walkways, churches and doctors which are all within easy, flat walking distance of our lovely homes and gardens. Residents here are like our extended family and the staff are all so friendly. Living here has added another highlight to our lives.”
What’s believed to be New Zealand’s largest and most luxurious retirement clubhouse is about to officially open in Tauranga, offering almost one acre of entertainment, exercise facilities and pampering for local retirees
