Guest reviews for Shantara Resort Port Douglas - Adults Only Retreat

5 out of 5

Definitely a Romantic Getaway

Lovely Owners and staff. So tranquil, quiet, clean and beautifully appointed.. everything was perfect...right down to the doona's and pillows on the beds. We stayed in a Hotel room and the facilities were just perfect. Wonderful to see a flat screen in the bedroom.. The pools were so inviting and beautifully lit up in blue, to gaze at of a night time from your balcony with a wine in hand! Cannot fault this beautiful place with the best location too. Close to the beach and the main street, great for a weekend getaway. Thankyou Marianna and Luigi for such a lovely stay! The one and two bedroom apartments are just gorgeous too! Saving them for next time!!
