Tucked away in the heart of Naromoru, The Nelion offers a luxury hotel experience with breathtaking views of Mt. Kenya in the west, and the rolling Aberdare ranges in the east.
Combining contemporary design and local craftsmanship, with a profound appreciation for the environment, the lodge is largely built using recovered and recycled materials always making sure to maintain the modern rustic theme.
The Nelion derives its name from the clearest and second highest peak of Mt. Kenya, jutting into the skies at a majestic 17,021 ft (5,188 metres) above sea level, and a mere 250 metres from the highest peak, Batian. Nelion is actually an anglophone corruption of the name Nelieng, who was Mbatian’s (Batian peak) younger brother.
