Just an immaculate place with a beautiful design... We LOVED the Shantara. Little things... The heated pool wasn't much warmer than the non-heated pool and much of both pool sitting area were shaded under the awesome palm trees... I'm guess this is b/c it get sooo hot there most of the year the the abundance of shade is desirable and... More

My partner and I had the most wonderful stay at Shantara. The room was perfectly clean. The location was only mins walk from town and 4 Mile Beach. The value for the apartment was great. The service was tops. We stayed 4 nights and can recommend Shantara for real relaxation, sitting by one of the pools, or sitting in the... More

My wife and I stayed at Shantara at the end of April. The resort is clean, modern and has a good gym and BBQ facilities and of course a great location. We had a room opening up to the pool which we highly recommend. The only downsides were the poor sound insulation between rooms (can hear neighbours conversations) and the... More

We had a one bedroom apartment on the 2nd floor. Its decor was modern and of a high quality. We had limited contact with staff, but when we did, they were friendly and helpful.

Found the resort appealing online being adult only! But found that during the day kids "visiting" running around the pool- making noise and not peaceful- If I wanted to go to a campsite I would have. Also the rooms back onto the pool - nice but all the sound travels and echos up to the room and balcony. We were... More

During the stay of these guests we did have a small group of 4 couples (8 adults) that were in Port Douglas to celebrate a wedding. As expected these guests did congregate together at times which can sometimes result in “extra noise and activity”. We do state that we cater for adults only, but it is difficult to “ban” our...

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Shantara and would recommend it to friends. The location is fantastic as it's near the main street of downtown Port Douglas (less than 5min walk) and right across from 4 Mile Beach (again, less than 5min walk). The rooms are kept well and the bathroom was spacious with a fantastic shower. We enjoyed relaxing by... More
