We stayed at Tawi for 2 nights in November 2012 and it was amazing. The lodge is beautifully built and very tastefully decorated. Each room is located in a banda style building with a large bedroom and huge bathroom with a seperate bath and big rainshower. From each room you have a clear, undisturbed view of Mt Kili. The water hole in front of the main dining area and swimming pool is frequently visited by elephants. The staff are friendly and very helpfull, we had a baby and a 2 year old boy with us, which was no problem at all. The staff where very accomodating when we had special requests and kept an eye out on the kids when necessary. They even posted one of the guards outside our room in the evening so that we could enjoy our dinner and would be alerted when one of the kids woke up.
For Nairobians, the place is run by Ron, the former chef of Brew Bistro, so you can imagine that the food was excellent. From the lodge it is a 10-15 minute drive to the gate of the park, through the private conservancy of the lodge. This really is one of the best lodges in Kenya.
