These apartments were clean and decorated in a minimalist style. Washer and dryers are shared between 2 apartments. Very quiet environment with pool and Barbeque to use as desired. Staff is overly helpful on all external activities????? Kitchens are adequate. Wifi is extra, per device with very weak signal and very slow. Not enough routers available. If you are going... More

There were only 2 negatives. First was the staff hours at the desk. They were limited to daytime business hours. And unfortunately free internet access was limited. Aside from this, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

We flew into Cairns and were transported to the Shantara Resort in Port Douglas! The ride along the coast was beautiful and we arrived to a pleasant surprise! Beautiful view of pool, kitchenette, and our personal coin-free washer and dryer. We were able to relax, catch up on our laundry, and enjoy its location to town, the beach, and the... More

I had a wonderful massage from Jane at Shantara Day Spa, I found I relaxed which was good as I was feeling a bit stressed. I would highly recommend Jane as she know how to get the muscles to relax and no pain was involved.

What a wonderful resort the Shantara is! I am always worried when I book a hotel it is never what they describe or the pictures show but the Shantara was everything and more. Knowing it was our first wedding anniversary, they left two chilled glasses and a bottle of sparkling for us, complementary and for me these are the things... More

Security parking is included in the rate and up to 400mb of wi-fi. Unfortunately I did not know I needed a password to log in to wi-fi and had to wait until the... More

We stayed at the Shantara Resort for 4 nights and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The rooms are very clean have all of the normal facilities associated with this type of resort minus the kids and minus the noise. If your stay is to relax then this is your place. Even though it does not have a restaurant this... More

Definitely go for a pool deck room - so you can get right into the pool from your room. Gym was adequate. No restaurant on site. Book your massage a day ahead by writing your name in the appointment book near receptions. Jane was awesome!
