After checking out other Tripadvisor reviews about Shantara resort and spa, my husband and I decided to stay there for our 4 nights honeymoon trip at Port Douglas. The staff was courteous, friendly and helpful. We got there after normal reception hours, and the staff went extra mile by sending email weeks before our arrival for how to access and they also left a letter at the reception advising direction to our room. We picked the ground floor studio with pool access in our balcony, and I was extremely satisfied with my choice of this room. The room was really clean, neat and modern. It was a complete self contained studio. The location is fantastic as it's just a short stroll to shopping strip, restaurants, and the Four Mile Beach.
The room we picked has a balcony view of the swimming pool and just sitting there reading a book by the pool was a great way of spending the day. The hotel was full but the other guests were not noisy or loud.
Overall, I'm very satisfied and it was well worth of my money, especially for those looking for a relaxing holiday, close by the beach location. YuliMore
