Reviewed August 12, 2008

Travelled to Australia recently to visit family and decided to spend a week in Port Douglas. Really liked the Shantara because of its no U16s policy. The week was divine. Luigi and Mariane were delightful hosts and were always on hand for any queries, suggestions for places to eat, tours to take etc. The resort is only a few minutes walk from the main street AND the beach so very well positioned. Accommodation was excellent, absolutely beautiful and clean. The two pools were divine and some of the ground floor rooms have access straight on to the pool deck. A barbecue area is also provided if you wish to eat outdoors. We sat out on our lovely balcony each evening having some drinks before we sauntered into town to choose from a wonderful array of restaurants. The best part of our stay here was the wonderful quiet. No kids screaming by the pool at 9.0am, or even 9.0pm! Can thoroughly recommend a stay in this beautiful resort.

  • Liked — Peace and quiet, wonderful location close to everything
