Shooting Star Lodge: picture gallery


Shooting Star is located on the east coast of Zanzibar...
... with 16 rooms spread throughout the lush gardens.
It sits atop a coral cliff overlooking the beach...
..which is long with beautiful white sand...
... and has an interesting coastline to explore.
The gardens are well maintained...
...and the gardens are beautifully planted.
The lodge has fantastic views out to sea...
...and an amazing infinity pool for when the tide is out...
...it really is hard to tell where the pool ends and the sea and sky begin.
It's perfect to lounge around in the sun!
The garden and sea view rooms are simple, but comfortable...
... with Zanzibari style beds...
... en-suite bathrooms ...
... and an area of raised beach.
The Kusi and Kaskazi suites offer a little more space and luxury...
... and come with a rooftop bath...
... and a good sized private plunge pool.
There's plenty of space to relax in the lodge's main area.
Enjoy a tasty meal in the restaurant...
... indulge in a massage at the Star Spa...
... unwind at the Starfish Beach Bar...
...before finishing the day with a drink ...
...and watch the moon rise.
