Room types at Shooting Star Lodge
Garden Lodge Room
The three garden lodge rooms are smaller and more simply furnished, with Zanzibari beds. They have air conditioning and ceiling fans, and bathroom en-suite.
The two villas, Kusi and Kaskazi are set on the crest of the hill apart from the main hotel guest rooms. Each villa is laid out on 3 floors with 2 bedrooms (each with its own bathroom), a roof terrace and a private swimming pool, set amidst a tropical garden. They are furnished with stunning traditional Zanzibar furniture and batik linen.
Sea View Cottage
Our eleven sea view cottages are spacious en-suite rooms, built in keeping with traditional Zanzibari styles of architecture with airy, high-beamed ceilings, large windows, ceiling fan and air conditioning. All have traditionally carved wooden Zanzibari beds, with mosquito net canopies and beautiful batik bed covers, along with coconut wood wall mirrors and other hand-made teak wood furniture. Every cottage has its own private veranda.
