Pure Bliss

Elizabeth Nelson, Solo Traveller from Australia

I stayed a week over New Years with my mother and what a wonderful stay it was. With the cricket test on TV, a cheeky cosmopolitan in hand and the pool just steps from the door it was the most relaxing, blissful experience I've had in a long time. The BBQ area is brilliant and the staff where so pleasant to deal with. With a short walk to shops, restaurants and the beach, it made for the perfect holiday! Thank you.

Sandra Scates, Couple from Australia

We came to Port Douglas to celebrate our friends 50th birthday. Shantara was booked by our birthday friend and was a wonderful surprise, Everything was perfect, Shantara was like a tranquil oasis....no children and our room was so spacious with a gorgeous ensuite bathroom. So close to the shops and retaurants. When we come back to Port Douglas we won't look anywhere else.

Shantara is the Best

Pam Farrington, Solo Traveller from Australia

Shantara is an extremely well run property, close to all amenities, the rooms are light and airey and the pool and garden surrounds are very well maintained, as an added bonus the staff are always very helpful.

Amazing

Keith and Carol Wood, Couple from Australia

If you want a relaxing holiday then this is the place to stay. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment on the 2nd floor back in April for our 40th Wedding Anniversary. The apartment was very spacious and overlooked the pool from our balcony, and everything is as good as you see on the internet. The condition and furnishings in the room are first class, the towels and bed linen superb and the king bed was really comfortable. There was an air-conditioner and ceiling fan in both the lounge area and the bedroom. The bathroom has a walk in shower and a spa bath too and is also very spacious. The kitchen area was well equipped with premium crockery and utensils, and they supply milk pods and tea and coffee sachets etc for when you first arrive. There are two outdoor pools and one has a BBQ area for guests to use. There is also free underground parking at the apartments if you drive to Port Douglas. If you prefer privacy and quiet then I would suggest a room on the 2nd floor rather than the rooms on the ground floor that have direct access to the pool from their rooms. The only downside is that for non smokers it is irritating when other guests'' cigarette smoke periodically drifts from their balcony onto yours if you sit out, but you can get that in any hotel. Having said that we would definitely stay here again.

Mr Craig Mizzen, Couple from Australia

We had just spent 7 days on a camping tour in Northern Queensland roughing it and thoroughly enjoyed coming back to the high standards and quietness of the Shantara. We found the staff to be helpful and courteous.

Perfect base for a stay in the beautiful Port Douglas

Maria Howlin, Couple from Australia

My partner and I enjoyed a 4 night break in Port Douglas and chose to stay in Shantara following a recommendation of a work colleague. As soon as we stepped inside we seen why this resort was recommended. Very clean and modern throughout, our studio room was very comfortable with a lovely balcony view onto the pool below. The resort is ideally located in walking distance of the main shopping and restaurant areas as well as the beautiful Four Mile Beach. We went on a number of tours including a trip out on to the reef, jungle surfing and Kuranda cable cars all of which were booked by the reception staff. Overall a very relaxing and easy place to stay and we look forward to returning again.

Luxurious and peaceful

Sandi , Couple from Australia

Chose to celebrate my 50th in Port Douglas as we had been here before though last time we didn''''t stay at shantara. This is like the oasis in the tropics, awesome amenities especially if you are happy to look after yourself and so peaceful as no children are allowed. A great weekend getaway, if you can book the shantara apartments ( there are only 4) it''''s worth the extra for the private jacuzzi. All in all a memorable stay and we look forward to coming back again one day.

Anniversary Weekend

Loren , Couple from Australia

We really enjoyed our stay at Shantara, I have already recommended this resort to many friends and family as we were highly impressed. The attention to detail, cleanliness and service were of high standard. This place was prefect for a romantic weekend away, it is so peaceful! We loved the fact that restaurants, boutiques and beach were all walking distance.
