We stayed in Tawi in June 2013. We only stayed two nights however it was part of our plan to do a couple of days safari and then have some island time in Tanzania.
We stayed overnight in Nairobi first and then got picked up and taken to the domestic airport early doors. On arrival in Amboseli we were greeted with true African hospitality. Blankets, coffee, biscuits and a 4x4 to ourselves. We were driven to Tawi and the ranger made sure we had a good sneak preview of the landscape on the way.
The resort is gorgeous. Only 13 villas as I remember, with beautiful fit out, comfortable beds and very spacious. The verandas were private, overlooking the bush.
The resort is family run and the meals are set menus but different every day and they will consider dietary needs. We had sundowner drinks in the bush and fantastic early morning cold safaris. Again, all beverages provided and we had our own ranger for the two of us.
Tawi was excellent for its privacy and exclusivity, with an amazing lodge with roaring fires and welcoming drinks. The atmosphere was fantastic and we felt very relaxed the whole time, with just the right amount if attention from the staff.
Would highly recommend Tawi, especially for couples who want to get away.
