I am not sure how this property quite got to where it did on Trip Advisor, upon arrival at 3.30pm we were desperate to just get an hour relaxing in the sun, but the 2 small pools were practically totally covered in shade, upon closer inspection we realised that all ground floor rooms have their own deck out to the...

Dear Nina, Thanks for taking the time to give us your review. It does sound from your review that Shantara really wasn't your cup of tea and that you should of booked a Hotel instead !

My partner and I recently stayed at Shantara and we absolutely loved it. The management and staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome and the apartment and pools were just beautiful.

We were allocated a nice studio room with private deck by the pool- it was great to just jump into the pool straight from the deck. Bed was very comfortable and the bathroom had a huge walk in shower. All the amenities for self-catering which made it easy for breakfast and snacks. Great air-con which is a must in these...

Shantara should be renamed Shantara Apartments not Resort and Spa. The Day Spa services were not available during our stay yet no mention of this when booking. I have noticed this comment on several other reviews so I believe the Day Spa facilities are very limited at best. There are no resort facilities. The Apartments are nice and clean. Unfortunately...

These apartments were clean and decorated in a minimalist style. Washer and dryers are shared between 2 apartments. Very quiet environment with pool and Barbeque to use as desired. Staff is overly helpful on all external activities????? Kitchens are adequate. Wifi is extra, per device with very weak signal and very slow. Not enough routers available. If you are going...

There were only 2 negatives. First was the staff hours at the desk. They were limited to daytime business hours. And unfortunately free internet access was limited. Aside from this, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

I had a wonderful massage from Jane at Shantara Day Spa, I found I relaxed which was good as I was feeling a bit stressed. I would highly recommend Jane as she know how to get the muscles to relax and no pain was involved.
