Shooting Star Lodge


... is located in the Kiwengwa area on the northwest coast of Zanzibar Island off the Indian Ocean Coast of Tanzania.

Situated north of the village of Kiwengwa, this pleasant small beach lodge is set in a commanding position on top of rise some 30m above a broad white-sand beach, with the best part of a kilometre from the nearest resort.

A low key reception area leads through to a lovely little bar and restaurant area, with a beautiful rim-flow pool out front. Very pleasant suite rooms take the form of small towers with rooftop terraces, whilst simpler sea view and garden rooms occupy positions lower down the slope.

Shooting Star Lodge was one of the first small lodges to be established on the island we have been making bookings here since 2001. But it has never become on of our real favourites, partly because of its location on the busy Kiwengwa coast, but also because service can be patchy at times, which is why guest reviews tend to be a little mixed.
