Reviewed October 5, 2013

We were so glad that we chose Shantara resort for our first stay in Port Douglas.. It was clean, quiet and so relaxing. It is an excellent place to stay as a couple to chill out. Shantara is in an excellent position. It is a short walk to main street for coffee and evening meals. Short walk to marina to catch boats for activities etc. A really short stroll to the beach as well. The staff are friendly and extremely helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

Room Tip: A studio SWIM OUT room a must. Enough room for a couple. If you prefer a little more space they have...

Loved that there were no kids, the no kids under 16 was adhered to and was appreciated. Pool was clean and good location. Would stay there again. Self catering made the trip affordable, we didn't use the BBQ equipment but plenty did when we were there.

Four days are not enough to fully benefit from this classy apartment complex perfectly located in this excellent resort which is a class ahead of nearby Cairns (1 hour to the south)
Swimming with sharks and turtles on a trip to the Low Isles on the Great Barrier Reef is an out -of-this-world experience not to be missed.

Room Tip: Rooms on the first level are more private but do not have their own pool access!

My husband and I stayed at Shantara from Sept 20th - Sept 23rd and had a wonderful stay. The one bedroom apartment was nice and spacious with an awesome balcony (where we had breakfast and mimosas every morning). There is a full kitchen so we just went to Cole's market in town for some groceries. The resort has two pools and because it's adults only, was very peaceful and romantic. We really enjoyed our stay here and would definitely return.

Room Tip: Upgrade from a studio to a one bedroom apartment for more space.

Located close to everything including beach, shops, restaurants and coles. Quiet relaxed atmosphere and love that it was childfree! Book a room with a pool deck or you may find there are not enough pool lounges around the pool.

We have just returned from our 3 week holiday touring Australian and this is where we stayed for our last 4 nights just to relax before we came home.
This complex had been suggested by our travel agent. We normally don't do self catering and prefer hotels but it turned out to be a great choice, adults only, which was wonderful as we hadn't realised that it was in the middle of the australian school holidays, and as it was just a 4 to 5 min walk from the main street very handy for the restaurants and shopping area.
Our studio apartment was a little smaller than I am used to but as we were out most of the time it didn't really matter. It was very well kitted out and the bed comfortable.
My husband who is a keen swimmer found the pool small and an odd shape to swim in but I suppose if you just want to cool off in it then its fine.
Kay on reception was a great help with booking wonderful restaurants and she also confirmed all our trips and our transfers.
I am not likely to visit the are again but if I did I would certainly go back here.
