Shantara was a great place to stay right in the heart of Port Douglas. We stayed in a pool apartment and could jump straight into the pool fro our balcony. The resort is only a short walk from the main street restaurants and beach. Although our room was a little small it had everything we needed. Best place for couples...

We stayed in a pool view 1 bedroom apartment on top floor with balcony. Used the BBQ facilities on night, very well maintained. Lovely pool to hang out and relax. Perfect position. 5min walk to main street shops and restaurants. Onsite parking. Very clean and modern facilities. Staff were great, helped us book all our tours etc. Would definitely return.

It was quiet, clean and well kept. The staff were friendly and helpful. I read reviews before I went and didn't encounter any of the issues people had put. No its not a resort but a stones throw from everything, close enough but not on top so it's quiet. The staff were helpful with trips it took the hassle away...

As part of my honeymoon, my wife and I stayed 7 nights at Shantara in January 2014. The resort was nice, the room was large with modern decor, we had a separate bedroom, the living room consisted of a couch, kitchen, and dinning table. The swimming pools were a little on the small side but worked fine during the time...
