Welcome to Shantara Resort and the Port Douglas region. 

We wish to advise that our resort suffered no damage in the December weather events. 

Further, and since that time operations in and around Port Douglas have returned to normal. Restaurants in Port Douglas are all open and functioning as we would expect. Tour operators are also back to normal schedules to the Great Barrier Reef and some operators are running slightly adjusted itineraries into the Daintree Rainforest to allow for road repair in the Daintree / Cape Tribulation area. 

Access to Port Douglas is via the spectacular Great Barrier Reef Drive and you can expect a commute time of 1 hour and 10 mins between Cairns Airport and Port Douglas. 

We look forward to welcoming you to our spectacular region and feel confident in saying that you will thoroughly enjoy your time with us. 

The wellbeing of our guests and staff are of paramount importance.
