We've stayed at a number of properties in Port Douglas before, but think Shantara provides the best value for money. It was immaculately clean, well equipped, in a good location and very comfortable. We loved that it was a kid-free zone too. The only thing I would advise is that if privacy is important to you - specify it in... More

We have stayed at the Shantara Resort three times and love it. It is so peaceful and quiet with two delightful pools, beautiful trees and shrubs which have lovely exotic birds. The rooms are very comfortable and nicely decorated with quality linen and fittings. It is totally quiet and secluded yet less than 5 minutes stroll to the beach or... More

We could not ask for cleaner accommodation. The whole resort was immaculate. I am extremely fussy and i was very impressed. I travelled with my adult son (he has an intellectual disability) and the staff were very obliging and ever so kind to him and myself. The pool and surrounding area was quiet and relaxing as this is an adult... More

My husbund and I stayed at the Shantara in December for our Honeymoon. We had previously spent a month driving up the East Coast in a campervan and Port Douglas was our last stop. The Hotel is in a really good location just literally a 5 minute walk to the beach and a 5 minute walk in to the town.... More

Shantara Resort is a lovely place to stay, it's exactly as it appears on the website and has a great layout so that all the rooms overlook one of the two pools. We had a room with a pool deck which meant that we could get straight in to the pool from our room, It was quiet and child free... More

Great location, walking distance to a beautiful beach and all the fabulous restaurants Port Douglas has to offer. Well appointed rooms, although a little dark. Comfortable bed. Nice and clean. We had a ground floor room which went straight out to the heated pool, we were a little disappointed that we didn't get any sun on our deck so if... More

From the moment we drove in the entrance I could tell Shantara was exactly how the website had portrayed it... beautiful and elegant but in no way pretentious. Our welcome was friendly and efficient. Right away the local knowledge of the staff ensured we did not miss out the reef tour we had planned to go on. They knew the... More

Shantara Resort and Spa Port Douglas is a gorgeous place to stay! We have been to Port Douglas 3 times and have stayed at Shantara everytime - and we will definitely be back again! Great location, close to everything. Friendly, helpful staff. Rooms are beautiful and modern. Gorgeous pools. Child free (under 16 yrs old) so it's quiet & relaxing.... More
