Shantara Port Douglas is the perfect Port Douglas luxury accommodation, your getaway to a special place in North Queensland that bard, William Shakespeare never knew existed, but you would think was writing about. You could do worse to make knees weak by reciting, “Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?” Here in Port Douglas you have many days like this, and it’s not necessary for the day to be summer for “thee” to be compared. Even our winters are more temperate.

We’re not here for an English class, but we are certain that this is not the first, nor will it be the last time that Sonnet 18 is included in someone’s courtship ritual here in Port Douglas, and indeed, here at Shantara Port Douglas.


While it’s completely unnecessary to go quoting Shakespeare, the luxury of our Port Douglas resort accommodation is more than enchanting. Our wonderfully tropical Port Douglas resort has been designed for couples to enjoy. You will not hear the screams of children in the pool, even though we have two delicious lagoon-style pools. We have gone to great pains to ensure the calm and serenity of the resort is not broken by bookings with unruly children in tow. This resort is strictly a grownups affair.

Depending on your particular booking, you can choose between direct access to the pool from your private deck, or take an apartment with a jacuzzi (hot tub). For the perfect upgrade for guests who prefer all amenities at their fingertips can request the Shantara Apartments with both direct access to the pools, and a large jacuzzi to soak in.

Make sure you explore Port Douglas. For repast at least, there are many fine restaurants and ale houses to have your fill, refer to our restaurant page. And if adventure do makest one curious at least, our Tour Desk can recommend activities and tours, if just for distraction.
