We stayed here for 7 nts from the 28th Dec until the 4th of Jan. We were celebrating our engagement and were given a complimentary bottle of champas on arrival. Resort is very tidy and well maintained, along with rooms. We stayed in a 1brm studio on the top floor overlooking the pool. This is your best option if you... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Shantara. The whole place is in pristine condition and obviously very well maintained. We found the pools a great place to relax in quiet surroundings. Given the close proximity to town, on a couple of nights we bought fish/steak etc and used the large BBQ area. It has lots of facilities and condiments making... More

We stayed here for 3 nights as part of our honeymoon. On arrival there was a bottle of wine for us, which was a lovely touch. Couldn't fault this place; spotlessly clean, very quiet and staff are very friendly and helpful. Also the location is fantastic, walking distance to the main street in Port Douglas. Would definitely stay here again!

The room was very nice and clean (albeit on the small side). The staff were friendly and helpful. This is not the first place we have stayed in North QLD that don't service the rooms daily. It wasn't much of an issue for us, although I know if we were there any longer than 3 nights it may have become... More

Excellent because there are no kids around, great that here are two pools but there isn't much room to lay in the sun around the pool. Rooms are nice and clean and bed comfortable but very noisy and no privacy on the balcony. We requested a top floor room for some extra privacy but were given one of the most... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Shantara. Our late arrival was catered for effectively by an entry code, key and directions to our room. Some great recommendations on local eating places and tours was available at request through the receptionist. Our room was lovely, balcony over the pool and we had the option of not using house keeping while we... More

We spent eight days at Shantara and could not have found anything better. It is well situated just a five minute stroll from the centre of Port Douglas. The apartment was beautifully clean, the bed extremely comfortable, staff unfailingly friendly, the pools lovely. All in all the most relaxing week possible. We would stay there again if we are ever... More
