It is a retirement home which is purpose built for the Golden Age.
Nestled in a private enclave amidst a 32-acre integrated development, Millennia Village spans over 8 acres of prime land that also features a natural pond and a view of a beautiful, rugged granite rock face.
Millenia Village is a project consisting of commercial building lots which are divided into 2 blocks, both with their own set of car parks and support facilities. Block A has 168 rooms, a one-storey car park; Block B with 176 rooms, a three-storey car park, and a half-storey podium block, also with support facilities and a substation.
This project is expected to be launched in the third quarter of 2023. This project is designed by an Australian architect.
I like the heart-shaped roof top in between the two buildings. It shows the love and care that is put into this place. Another thing I appreciate about this garden is the windy fresh air that circulates here.
This garden in the center of the whole compound truly follows the Hakka concept where everyone can commune. It also adds a touch of forestry amidst the modernity of the Millennia Village, bringing you a sense of peace and calm while I enjoyed my time there.
What further attracted me the most to Millennia Village is the Urban Farming and Herb Garden. There is also a jungle trekking route designed by the natives of Seremban.
The safety and security feature of this place is top notch with a panic button placed in each room. They even had emergency responders as staff members, any senior who lives in this retirement village is going to receive the utmost care.
Millennia Village's lease rental model takes away the hassle for seniors of managing their own property with 3 years plus 3 years lease term.
- Two types of rooms, a studio room which is 1 bedroom with 517 square feet built up and a 2-bedroom living space with 797 square feet.
- Price is ranging from RM4500 to RM7500, it includes breakfast and dinner for one person. If you have company/loved one with you, it is an additional RM1000.
- There is also a dedicated place for family members to stay.
For facilities in Millennia Village, you name it they have it.
- 4 food outlets/restaurant/cafe/bistro,
- Specialty Shops
- Hair Salon
- Snack Shop
- Wellness Centre
- Computer/Internet Access

In fact, for a retirement village, it is important to have activities that can cater for their residents' lifestyle. From artistic pursuits to recreational activities, at Millennia Village, their Programme Director will curate a list of choices for everyday moments such as:
- Food Tasting Workshop
- Fun Art Session
- Board Games
- Movie Night
- Tai Chi
- Qi Gong
- Day Trip
- Senior Dance
- Afternoon Tea Party.
For location wise, this place is in the heart of everything essential. It is only a 10 min walk from town, making sure its residents are closer to the banks, shopping malls, and hospitals. A shuttle bus service is also available in this village.
I think it will attract lots of Singaporean seniors as I feel like they would enjoy this life of leisure in this environment compared to a bustling city.
From this trip, I can sense that this retirement village is just like Club Med who caters for seniors, ideally 55 years old to 75 years old. While speaking with Madam Susan Ho, one of the founders of Millennia Village who showed us around the whole facility, I really can feel her passion and dedication to build an age-friendly living space, which not only cater to market needs but also for her own self. Thus, this village will be ideal for senior living in this journey called life. It is in line with the tagline: Precious Moments for your Life's Journey.
