The facilities were brilliant and everything was provided for a comfortable stay. The location was perfect just a short walk to the main areas at night and nice and quiet😀 could not... More

As per usual the Resort lived up to its great reputation. Nothing is left out. Great service, immaculate and friendly. Second visit. Stayed for over a week. Two different pools both warmed up at different temperatures. Plant of parking. This place is close to town so walking is an option. We love the fact of no kids so quiet and... More

Where to start? We spent nine nights at Shantara during the school hols. We were both extremely pleased with the quality and ambience the staff at Shantara work hard to maintain. The resort is adults only--once you see how the apartments are wrapped around the swimming pools (there are two) you'll understand that kids jumping in and out of the... More

We had a large poolside suite which was well equipped and comfortable. Hotel is easy walk to restaurants etc. Good staff with an easy laid back style that matches the location well. The upstairs rooms are smaller but comfortable. A quality and affordable option for groups and grown up families.

5 minute walk to the Main Street of restaurants and shops. We had a two bedroom one bathroom apartment which we shared with our 17 year old son. Would have been a tight fit for two couples. More of an apartment complex than resort. Great staff. Free Wifi. Two pools.

We took advantage of the 'pay for three nights and stay for four' offer (even during school holidays - peak season!) and were very happy with Shantara. We had a one bedroom apartment, which was roomy, with a huge bathroom (complete with spa bath - a surprise!) and generous balcony. The living area was great, and the kitchen adequate for... More

My partner and I stayed for a few nights at the end of June. This is by far the best resort we've ever stayed at. It's quiet, peaceful and such a relaxing atmosphere to stay in.
