Shantara Resort Port Douglas - Adults Only Retreat

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We had a one bedroom apartment which was just lovely. We enjoyed using the kitchen and had one meal a day in our apartment. Kitchen was well equipped. Apartment is light and airy. Towels soft and fluffy. Desk staff was helpful with any queries. Washer and dryer in hall. Pool was delightful. Good location to go on reef trip or explore the rainforest.

We were just at the Shantara for four days and five nights. We wanted to do a Daintree tour and go snorkeling on the reef, and the staff pointed us to two tours that we really thought were great and personal. The rooms are really clean and new and we loved that. It was our honeymoon, and the owners left a bottle of bubbly and glasses in our fridge with a personal note which was such a welcome and nice touch! The room we had was a studio pool deck room which admittedly was a bit small, but we did not spend a lot of time in the room since we wanted to explore. i wanted that room since we could jump right into the pool from our room which was a great touch, though i would have liked it if the pool was heated and if the decks had more sun - there was lots of foliage which provided some privacy, but our deck did not really get sunlight, so we didn't swim much at the pool as a result. also notable is that these are apartments and not an actual hotel, so there is no restaurant, etc, but that didn't bother us a bit as there are dozens of places to go to just one block away on port douglas' main strip. overall the shantara was a really lovely little boutique that was walking distance to all the good places but still made us feel welcome and homey!

Great hotel, extremely modern and clean room, and a very quick walk around the corner to the main drag of shops, restaurants and bars. I'd highly recommend this place and will definately be back myself.
