A great place to relax!

Peter Evans , Couple from Australia

My husband did a bit of researched and decided to book at Shantara. It had great reviews and was very comparable to the other hotels/resorts in terms of price and facilities. We stayed a week during the off season and it was one of the best vacations we have had. The place was adults only and so it was peaceful. We had the pool to ourselves any time of the day. The other guests were respectful yet friendly when we acknowledged each other. The reception team were very friendly and welcoming especially Dinah! Lots of suggestions and helped us book a tour for the outer reef and had heaps of suggestions for other places of interests. The room was perfect. Neat and clean and the air con and fan were on to greet us when we arrived in the afternoon. We had the 1 bedroom apartment with an equipped kitchen. We got food and drink supplies as we drove up from Cairns so we could stock the family size fridge! There is an under cover bbq area which included basic condiments and utensils. We cooked our meals and had them on our balcony over looking the pool. We stayed for 7 nights so there was a complimentary room clean or else you can get it done for a small fee when you want to. We have a couple of friends who stayed there years ago and they enjoyed it too. We would recommend it and will definitely go back. Pete and Sumay

Shantara Resort Review

Natalie Woodward, Other from United Kingdom

Shantara Resort is a fantastic place to stay in Port Douglas. The hotel is situated only 5 mins away from both the main town and the beach which has lovely restaurants, bars and shops. The rooms meet satisfaction highly with air conditioned rooms, a lovely balcony overlooking the pool and very clean. The receptionist staff are very friendly are very helpful with assisting you in anything you need. I would highly recommend this accommodation to stay in Port Douglas. I will definitely be returning!

Very Quiet

Grant Manley, Couple from Australia

A very clean and tidy resort, very well mannered staff both friendly and helpful. The resort is very quiet which is why we choose it. The BBQ and pool area are very clean and you get plenty of sun during the day. My wife and I stayed in 5A which is close to the BBQ area with a pool deck and private spa. We will be recommending this resort to all family and friends and intends to stay again next year.

One word - fabulous!

Sarah and Graham Murphy, Couple from Australia

We booked Shantara for a last minute trip to Port Douglas for the first week of the new year. We were initially just happy to have found availability during that week for such a reasonable price but we were also lucky enough to secure a pool deck studio room. We were excited about the beautiful rooms, the ease of access to the pool and the fact that it was adults only as we were looking for some quiet time together. Shantara exceeded our expectations as soon as we arrived. It was only 10:30am but our room was ready and the air conditioner was on, waiting for our arrival on a hot day. The room itself was lovely very clean and bright, with a surprisingly large bathroom and shower recess for a studio apartment. The room was also practical for a stay at a hotel without a restaurant with a fridge, sink and microwave. The hotel also provides you with lots of thoughtful inclusions to make your stay easier, such as glassware (and plastic for use in the pool area), plates, toaster, kettle, utensils, ironing board, hair dryer etc. It really had everything we needed to stay far longer than our 3 night stay allowed us. The pool was so nice heated but still lovely and cool to slip into on a hot day right off our deck! It was an easy walk into town less than 5 minutes to walk to the main street and 10 minutes to walk to the Marina. We really loved the Shantara and sincerely hope we have the chance to stay again soon. Thank you! Sarah and Graham

Great Stay

Tremayne Gibson, Other from United States of America

Very pleasant stay, everything was clean and comfortable. Really appreciated the kitchen setup since food choices are limited in the area and after traveling for two weeks it was nice to have the option to cook my own meals. It's a small detail, but I liked the tea set in the cabinet, was nice being about to fill a whole pot and leisurely drink a few cups at breakfast. Though we did eventually figure it out, the stove top settings were a little tricky to use since we couldn't tell which way was high or low, but that might be a cultural difference between the USA and Australia. Was also only a short walk from the main street with a grocery, butcher (yeah for croc steaks!), restaurants, and souvenir shops. Overall, it was the best hotel I stayed at during my week in the country.

Holiday Bliss

Samantha Schwinidt, Couple from Australia

Our stay at the Shantara Resort was amazing. The facilities were great, the rooms were large, clean and impeccably kept. All appliances and furniture were in as new condition. The main strip was not too far (a huge plus) and the front desk staff were very welcoming and approachable. I would have no hesitation recommending this resort.

5 star

Prudence Rayner , Solo Traveller from Australia

The staff were always friendly and helpful if required. The facilities and room cleanliness was of highest standard. The accommodation was so nice and quiet and could enjoy a coffee on the deck at anytime with full peace and the swimming pool was very quiet. Could always relax at this location, no matter the time of day. The air conditioners were very efficient. Would stay again and recommended.
