Don’t leave your honeymoon plans to the last minute. Our Port Douglas honeymoon accommodation is the perfect destination to celebrate your nuptials. Shantara Port Douglas offers sophisticated and elegant honeymoon accommodation right in the heart of Port Douglas and we’re just minutes away from Macrossan Street, the Port Douglas eating precinct where you can find virtually any cuisine you desire.

With the wedding out of the way, it’s time to relax and actually enjoy yourselves. Our guests come to Shantara for the superb service and care, and if required, pampering from our onsite day spa. At Shantara Day Spa you can dissolve your stress and tension with massages and treatments that use Australian essential oils in combination with flower essences for an authentic and rejuvenating experience.

Shantara Port Douglas is a honeymoon destination with a difference. We have no honeymoon suites to speak of. None. Rather, we have created an oasis of private enjoyment, a Port Douglas resort dedicated to the art of romantic escapes — an entire honeymoon zone for adults only.

We have studio apartments for guests who prefer to travel lighter, our one bedroom apartments are fully self-contained accommodation that offer plenty of space and the options for a private jacuzzi (hot tub) attached to the apartment, direct access to the pool from the apartment, and the Shantara Apartments which offers you both options. The apartments themselves offer plenty of privacy with the clever use of Japanese Shoji screens between the living area and the bedroom. For climate control, all apartments include air conditioning and also good cross-ventilation if you prefer open doors and windows.


Shantara Port Douglas has a fabulous location and most of the local Port Douglas attractions are quite walkable. Certainly the restaurants are a stones throw from the apartments, and the tour operators provide door to door service as a matter of course.

There are numerous walks you can take around Port Douglas, an easy one is Flagstaff Hill which is the highest point and best location to survey the village and Four Mile Beach. Beside the Dickson Inlet end of Macrossan Street is ANZAC Park where the where the Sunday Markets are held. It’s a colourful array of stalls with fresh tropical fruit and produce, exotic flowers, arts and crafts and, tarot card readers.

If you’re here to do some research for your upcoming wedding, check out St Mary’s by the Sea. It’s the cutest little chapel, and perfect for intimate wedding parties.


If the big wedding really isn’t what you want, but you would still like a select group of friends and family to be part of your big day, why not consider eloping to Port Douglas. Grab your loved ones, (and your partner) and make a simple plan for an exchange of vows in Port Douglas. Imagine standing barefoot on the white sandy beach, or having the millennia old trees of the Daintree Fainforest as your witnesses.

The wedding reception doesn’t have to be a grand affair. Then again, this was supposed to be eloping. However a great night out deserves to be had for one and all, and Port Douglas has a countless number of places where a great night out can be had. Pull out the magnums, maybe a Krug or two.

Then let the honeymoon commence.
