Zanzibari built and run, Shooting Star Lodge is situated on the northernmost peninsula of Zanzibar Island and overlooks a sparkling expanse of iridescent Indian Ocean. It has one of the finest and most unspoilt beaches on the island, which in turn is fringed by a wide and thriving coral reef. Infused with the laid-back, exotic yet ultimately natural spirit of Zanzibar, this is the place to truly relax.
The central lounge is the main hub of the hotel and encourages the social atmosphere. The friendly restaurant serves good food and overlooks the beautiful horse-shoe infinity pool. It really is hard to tell where the pool ends and the sea begins.
Shooting Star Lodge offers 11 sea view cottages, 3 garden lodges, and 2 honeymoon suites which are laid out over 3 floors and have panoramic roof terraces. All rooms are en suite with, air conditioning and secluded terraces.
Approximately an hour's drive from Stonetown and Zanzibar Airport.
Diving, snorkelling, fishing, windsurfing, day trips and excursions, bicycle hire.

Really nice place but compared to Kenya just not in the same league. Beach at resort a bit intimidating . Luxury resort in middle of very poor area felt a bit wrong and uncomfortable being there at times ,couldn't go for stroll on beach without been harassed continuously to go on the locals trips which was understandable but just made you feel a bit trapped at times
