The Great Barrier Reef is a World Heritage listed natural wonder of the world composed of 3000 individual reefs that stretches for over 2500 kilometres.
Most of the reef is protected, under the title as the largest marine reserve in the world. Comprising a disjointed maze of 2900 separate coral reefs and coral cays, the Great Barrier Reef is made up of billions of tiny living organisms.
Shantara Resort Port Douglas is situated in one of Tropical North Queensland’s most desirable holiday destinations. Shantara Resort and Spa combines beautifully appointed apartment accommodation, and luxury facilities with easy access to the magical Great Barrier Reef and Daintree Rainforest. The perfect holiday base.
Arrive at Shantara Resort Port Douglas and be greeted by the relaxed and tranquil environment . The courtyard’s two lagoon style swimming pools cleverly encircle the apartment courtyard to provide ground level apartments with poolside access. Private decks with tropical landscaping provides the perfect place to idyll with a drink. Balconies on higher floor provide an excellent vantage point of the pool without interrupting the privacy of ground floor guests.
The apartments and studio’s are stylishly furnished, the attention to detail is but one of the reasons for Shantara Resort’s five star accreditation.
Resort facilities are superb, with the choice of two swimming pools, both heated over the cooler months. One of the pools is linked by a tropical island to an excellent undercover BBQ and entertainment area. An air-conditioned gymnasium is available to guests to maintain their fitness regimes, and a day spa provides a further haven of calm and rejuvenation for guests.
Just north of the Daintree is Cape Tribulation. After travelling across the Daintree Ferry it’s possible to travel through spectacular lowland and tropical rainforest passing the much-travelled roads of Cape Kimberley and Cow Bay.
Around the Cape Tribulation area there are magnificent coastal views and a number of tourist attractions such as Cow Bay and its gorgeous beaches.
What a romantic paradise Shantara Resort reflected. We spent time enjoying the pool deck room, what a unique feature for those who love night swimming as a couple. The ( adults only ) concept was a perfect way to fall in love with Shantara & eachother ( again & again ). Thank you Shantara for not just being another resort, but rather an experience of what Port Douglas, Australia has to offer. Thanks for the opportunity to add diving the Great Barrier Reef to our list of adventures.
We loved our stay at Shantara right from entering the reception area. The friendliness and helpfulness of all staff was fantastic. The rooms were so clean, comfortable and conducive to relaxing. We loved the pool in the middle of the apartments. We will definitely be letting our travel agent friends know
