The village has a large range of facilities including a village green, swimming pool and a full sized bowling green.  Acacia Cove is proud to be one of five in the running for the award for Facility of the Year, Acacia Cove competes against residential complexes in Hong Kong, India, and the Philippines.

Best active ageing programme

During the year two luncheons were held for the 17 residents aged 90 and over and living independently. What they all had in common was that they had been very active all their lives and most had or still belonged to choirs and had very nutritious and healthy diets. As part of the "Live longer and live better" programme, Acacia Cove runs numerous activities for it's residents such as free singing lessons, weight and resistance training, cooking, nutrition, meditation, breathing and sleeping technique classes. All of which improve the body mind and soul.
