Maiyan is a Maasai word meaning God’s blessing and the development draws its inspiration from 3 elements: Blessing, Harmony and Excellence. The property is situated 5 Kms off the Nanyuki Dol-Dol road, 20 Kms north of Nanyuki town.
The natural Blessing is in the form of over 84 acres of full of natural lush landscape set on a backdrop of Mt Kenya and Lolldaiga hills with a view of Abedares from the Rooftop pool lounge in all the villas It is adjacent to the sounds of a flowing river marked with scenic valleys, drops and dam. The only building foot-print planned is on 20% of the Maiyan Estate
It is inspired from the land shaped like a piano where each development aspect plays out in unity with each other. From the luxury in the villas, to relaxation in the parks, to fun in the pools and children’s area, to focus in the conferencing and training, to nourishment in the restaurants, to re-charging with sports and recreational activities, to pampering in the spa and learning to ride in the Maiyan Equestrian Centre
Green Energy and Sustainability Practices
Maiyan Estate is afforested by planting of over 200,000 tree seedlings of different indigenous tree varieties, flowers and plants which are grown in the mature organic farm on site.
The majority of the Maiyan power needs are sourced from green energy fulfilled through using off-grid 150kw solar power installation, solar powered street lighting and 100% of the Water Heating is also solar powered.
Water Harvesting is done through our Eco friendly swirls which channel storm water into the 40 million litre dam. In addition, we have installed a water treatment plant that treats 100% of all the portable water consumed within the development to WHO standards. The treated water is then recycled for use in irrigation.
In keeping with our mission of blessing, harmony and excellence, we are committed to carry on working in cohesion with members of the neighboring communities in the true Maiyan community spirit. Local material, whose procurement continues to be a source of much needed employment in the area, has been used to the greatest extent possible including creation of skilled and casual employment opportunities.
