My husband and I stayed at Shantara for 4 nights in November and we couldn't be happier :-)
We stayed in a pool access room 6b which suited us fine and was impeccably clean.
As we were on our last holiday before our firstborn arrived we really enjoyed the serenity of the shantara. We liked how peaceful and private it was too. Staff were lovely and when I locked my purse in their safe they were quick to sort it out. We didn't organise any tours though I believe they would be more than happy to help guests if needed.
Pool is amazing, I read a few reviews from unhappy guests because one pool isn't heated, but really?! It doesn't need to be! I'm from Melbourne and really feel the cold but I loved it :-)
Also made use of the gym and it has everything u could need, even a swissball so I got to continue my preggi-Pilates moves while away!
Location is perfect only 5 min walk into town or four mile beach.
Overall 10/10 I would definitely stay here again.... Though will have to find a babysitter hahaha enjoy!!
