Our Vision

Some people use the phrase ‘over the hill’.
At Auriens that just means picking up speed.

Through our beautifully designed properties, world-class services and exceptional healthcare provision, Auriens is dedicated to challenging and subverting the norms of post-retirement (later) living.

We see the advancing years as something to celebrate, and we value agefulness as we do intelligence, attitude, style and sophistication.

At Auriens, our mission is to provide inclusive, comprehensive, centrally located places to live later life to the full. That means the catering is exceptional, the Club and restaurant are stylish places to congregate, and the spa, therapy suites and library are all a joy to linger in. Every requirement, large or small, will be effortlessly satisfied to premium hotel standards and beyond.

Here age is more than just a number – it’s a rite of passage to a lifestyle that is as entertaining and enjoyable as it is comfortable.

The Development


Design For Longevity

Style and comfort take equal billing at Auriens, as we believe that beautiful surroundings make for a better quality of life.

Echoing the classical Georgian architecture of the area, the spacious and contemporary interiors are bathed in natural light and exude a relaxed elegance, with timber panelled walls, cool marble floors and fabulous furnishings throughout.

While the lobby, restaurants, lounges and communal gardens all take on the qualities of a luxury hotel, the designers’ attention to detail continues into the individual apartments, which feature decadent bespoke bathrooms, kitchens and dressing areas.

Inspired by the impeccable Roosevelt Suite at The Beaumont Hotel pictured here, Richmond International will bring life and individuality to each and every space at Auriens through award-winning interior design, allowing us to deliver outstanding world-class experiences for our residents.

World Class Care


Centre For Attention

Auriens combines the privacy, magic and social scene of a members’ club with the logic and luxury of comprehensive best-in-class healthcare services. We believe that our residents and members have earned (and are accustomed to) the very best and this should never have to be compromised – especially when it comes to medical support.

Medical Partner

Draycott Nursing

Auriens’ residents have unlimited access to an exceptional level of care thanks to a unique partnership with Draycott Nursing. First founded in Chelsea in 1996 by Angela Hamlin, ex-Deputy Matron at King Edward VII’s Hospital for Officers, Draycott Nursing has over two decades of training excellence and experience.

Combining ‘old school’ standards with a highly individualised practice, Draycott’s team of full-service medical experts are available around the clock.



On The Doorstep

Kensington and Chelsea alone offer the perfect playground for the sophisticated later lifer. There’s the Orangery in Kensington Palace Gardens, the flamingos at Kensington Roof Gardens, the Bluebird emporium on King’s Road, the world renowned Ivy Restaurant and The Botanist. King’s Road is a busy thoroughfare with taxis and buses aplenty.

Auriens itself is positioned equidistant between Sloane Square and South Kensington providing access to the District, Circle and Piccadilly lines. When preferred, our chauffeur service can store your car for you if you wish, or take you wherever you would like to go.
