Shooting Stars is located in Kiwengwa along the east coast of Zanzibar.

This part of the eastern coast of Zanzibar, stretching between Matemwe and Kiwengwa, is characterized by hills and gentle reliefs. Shooting Star is located on the top of a cliff commanding a beautiful panoramic view over the lagoon.

Along with Matemwe Bungalows, Shooting Star has been one of the first resorts in the area, starting its activity as a simple restaurant and gradually improving to become a pleasant little hotel.

It consists of 16 rooms scattered along the cliff and divided into garden lodge, sea-view cottages and two Monsoon suites: these latter are secluded in the greenery while the garden rooms are very close to common areas.

The main restaurant and bar as well as the swimming-pool are also set upon the cliff while a stairway leads down to the beach with another bar, sunbeds and umbrellas.

Despite its vicinity to the big mass tourism resorts of Kiwengwa, Shooting Stars has managed to preserve the spirit of a small hotel and it can be recommended to travellers who like to have the possibility to eat around without having to give up the serene atmosphere that only small facilities can provide.
