Beautifully styled apartments, the staff were so friendly, and helpful, only too happy to help make the most of your holiday experience, recommending and organizing tours or dinner reservations. A fantastic introduction to Port Douglas, we will most certainly be returning.

This is our third time back at Shantara and we will continue to return. Location is excellent and within easy walking distance to the beach, shopping and restaurants. The high standard of accommodation, cleanliness and service made our stay a joy. Both pools are heated and it is relaxing and quiet as this is a couples only resort . Happy... More

Highly recommend this place to stay for couples. Great rooms and an awesome pool and bbq area. Woukd recommend a pool access room if you can get it! Only a short walk into town. The hosts are really friendly and the whole place has a very chilled out feel. Came home totally relaxed after a great time away.

We stayed for 4 nights in one of the spa rooms and was a relaxing and enjoyable stay. These rooms are the priciest but with a jacuzzi, swim up deck and spacious living, bedroom and bathroom areas you feel like you are in your own little apartment. Everything was modern, and even though we were based on the non-heated pool... More

A wonderful, quiet place! Couples only is a real treat. Stayed in a studio room for a week and this was fine. Beautifully clean and well thought out. Comfortable bed and pillows. The barbecue area was a great surprise - everything you needed including plates and cutlery, plus everything you need to keep it clean. Great location, close to town... More
