Shooting Star is personal, unpretentious and good value for money. It is a hotel to use if you are looking for an economical but reliable place to stay on Zanzibar.
ACCESS & LOCATION:
It is situated on Zanzibar’s palm-fringed east coast, approximately one hour’s drive from Stone Town and the international airport.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES AT SHOOTING STAR LODGE:
The ten cottages here are built in traditional Zanzibar style, with large windows, high-beamed ceilings and lime-washed walls. The garden rooms are the most economical, but we prefer the Sea View chalets as they have the best views.
The open-air restaurant and bar have panoramic vistas. The food here is some of the best in the area, serving both international cuisine and traditional African recipes.
ACTIVITIES AT SHOOTING STAR LODGE:
It nestles on a headland overlooking the fine white sand and coconut palms of Kwanga beach.
- Its spectacular views are some of the very best in Zanzibar.
- This is a simple, no-frills beach lodge with a stunning location and the idea here is to relax so there is not an exclusive list of activities; however, here guests can enjoy the views from the infinity pool, walk along the pristine beaches and venture into the onsite spa for a body scrub, massage or facial treatment.
