    Very friendly, helpfull staff upon arrival. Rooms and resort in general was very clean and tidy.”
    We had a swim out room which was amazing. First time we have stayed in an adults only resort and definately noticed the difference with how quiet it was compared to a normal resort. The only downfall for myself was I found the bed quite firm for my liking but my partner wasnt bothered. Overall would highly recommend this resort! :)

    Fabulous location, spotless and extremely comfortable accommodation, very friendly and helpful staff, it was a pleasure to stay there, and would certainly recommend it to anyone who was thinking of a Port Douglas getaway ( Shantara was recommended to us by friends who have stayed there, they have stayed at lots of places but they said Shantara was the best). Many thanks for a great getaway.

    The best stop n Port Douglas..don't bother booking elsewhere ”
    This was very very clean, relaxing, tranquil and extremely handy to everything including beach, shops, restaurants in town. We used bbq for a couple of meals n they supplied all the trimmings. The pool was just heaven on earth to wake up n walk 5 steps to the pool n deck. The no children aspect is fantastic. I couldn't fault the place.

    We will stay here again!”
    Best things are adult only, every room has a view of the pools, clean new non-musty rooms
    Loved our stay. Rooms are super clean and not at all damp or musty smelling like most hotels in the tropics. A few reviews mentioned the resort was too quiet. I did not have that experience. We stayed mid week for 4 nights and there were always people in the pools, on the balconies or in the BBQ area. It wasn't noisy but I wouldn't call it quiet since sound carries over the pool. We were never without a lounge chair by the pool and never had to wait for our turn to use the BBQ. Love love love the adult only rule. As a child free couple it was such a treat not to have to share the pools with splashing children! My only complaint was with the washer dryer set up. Our room shared a washer and dryer with the room next to us located in an alcove outside our rooms. Our neighbors were constantly doing laundry, every afternoon/evening. I don't know what the deal was but it was super annoying and they often had the dryer running late into the evening. Not the fault of the resort just inconsiderate people. I can understand doing a load before checking out but every evening for 3 days straight! Other than that, excellent stay and if we are lucky enough to come back to Port Douglas this will be our first choice.

    The staff were very friendly, helped us book day tours very efficiently. Quiet is not a strong enough word to describe this place though, it felt uninhabited. Serenity is good, but this was a bit overdone in my view.
