We stayed for 7 nights, Very clean and well appointed Resort with fabulous heated pools. Staff at Reception were very helpful and friendly. The location is awesome so close to beach and shopping, restaurants and supermarket. The Resort is very quiet with a relaxed atmosphere.

We were very glad we booked here and felt it was good value for money.

The only negative is that the position of the pool means that... More

Shantara resort and spa was fabulous, top notch. They couldn't do enough for you but still respected your privacy. Jane in the spa is the best massage therapist I've had. Actually made a good difference to my long term shoulder injury and pain free. Had three massage sessions with Jane whilst at Shantara for 10 nights wish I could have... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in early June. Check-in was quick and efficient and Kay was very helpful, offering advice on the best restaurants and sights to see in Port Douglas.
