Shooting Star Lodge

Garden View Cottage

The three Garden View rooms sit in one long stone and thatch cottage, bordering the lodge's central area. All have double or twin beds, a mosquito net and an en-suite bathroom. They're fairly small, but the white bed linen, walls, terrazzo floor and colourful rugs mean they feel quite bright. There's a chest, full length mirror and a separate luggage area and although there is air-conditioning, the rooms also have a standalone fan.

There is a small veranda outside with a day bed - although these are not very private and don't have great sea views.

(As many of our readers will know, “terrazzo" floors were originally created by Venetian construction workers – who used set marble chips from top-end jobs into clay surfaces of patios around their own living quarters. These days it still means incorporating various chips of different stones into the finish. )

The bathroom is small and simple but very clean. There's one sink a shower and a flush toilet.
