Nesflaten consists of 80 spread-out houses. There is a grocery shop, restaurant, hotel, chapel, school and daycare centre.
Nesflaten is home to Energihotellet and the offices of Hydro’s hydroelectric facilities in Røldal-Suldal. Those facilities were built in the 1960s and designed by Geir Grung.
The architect also designed the functionalist residential area that was established at the same time.
Nesflaten is a natural stop along the Norwegian Scenic Route Ryfylke or as part of the Architectural Route Sand-Røldal-Sauda.
