We stayed for 3 nights after booking on Wotif.com. We had a pool deck room. The room had a small kitchenette that had a microwave, bar fridge, kettle, toaster,cutlery,plates etc. Bed was comfortable and even though we were on the eco rate (ie no room service) we were provided with plenty of towels. There is a communal BBQ area and... More

My husband and I stayed for 10 nights in July. We had a top floor 1 bedroom apartment overlooking the pool with the BBQ area (there are two pools). It was a lovely apartment - clean, full kitchen (minus an oven - although microwave could be used as a convection oven), spa bath big enough for two (including me being... More

We have just returned from four nights at Shantara and it was a very enjoyable stay. The resort is quite new and extremely well maintained, with two highly attractive pool areas. We had a one bedroom apartment with a balcony area that stepped straight out onto one of the pools and it also had its own sunlounges. The apartment itself... More

I normally don't take the time to write reviews, however in this case I feel it is warranted. Prior to our holiday in Port Douglas I checked just about every upmarket 5 star accommodation premises and found Shantara to be the best in regards to locality, cleanliness, furnishings etc. We had the pool deck apartment which was ideal for us...

Staying at Shantara resort was awesome. We had a pool deck room, meaning we could step out of our room and into the pool. How cool is that! And every single night we walked to any restaraunt of our choice as the resort is so centrally located. The staff are friendly and helpful and nothing is a problem. The rooms... More

We spent 10 Nights at Shantara Resort in a Pool View Apartment. The room was very clean and had everything we needed to self-cater, with an outdoor BBQ area next to the pool which we used just about every night.The location was perfect just a short walk to 4 mile beach and the shops in Port Douglas.

Shantara was a lovely place to stay. It's location is great - 5 to 10 minutes walk from Macrossan St, Port Douglas and a 2 minute max drive into Port Douglas. The one bedroom apartment was situated on level 1 - over looking the pool - and was very spacious. It had a fully equipped kitchen, plenty of towels, seating... More

We stayed here for the 3 nights on our first leg of our honeymoon. we arrived early and room was ready with no problem. We had a swim up pool room, which was brilliant!

we stayed in a swim up suite. This is very small room, however, it is very well equipped, modern and very clean. There are two pool areas which are both very pretty, although quite small and there is limited space for those not in a swim up room. That said it was very quiet and there was rarely more than...
