This is one of those Port Douglas resorts you’ll never forget. You’ll love the hot tropical climate, delicious food, the ocean that goes on forever, and our luxury apartment resort, Shantara Port Douglas.

Fast forward to holiday time and unwind beside the pool sipping a Pina Colada. We can’t guarantee you’ll get caught in the rain, but here in Port Douglas you might get caught in a tropical shower. Port Douglas is the perfect place to come for a romantic tropical getaway. Come and renew your vows, have your second (or third) honeymoon, or make a decent proposal. Shantara Port Douglas is the adults only concept resort in Port Douglas. Yes that’s right. Adults only. We are passionate about ensuring the peace and tranquility of our guests is not disrupted by screaming or rambunctious children.

Port Douglas is the stuff of dreams, the gateway to the only two World Heritage listed sites, the Great Barrier Reef and the mighty Daintree Rainforest that border each other.


Experience the wonder of visiting what is thought to be the world’s oldest living rainforest, a rainforest that has existed virtually unchanged for more than 110 million years. This unspoilt and pristine Daintree Rainforest and the magnificent coastal vistas around Cape Tribulation, with crystal clear streams and creeks fed by the Daintree River make for a spectacular adventure. Take a riverboat ride on one of the Daintree River cruises. If you’re lucky you’ll spot a salt water crocodile, or possibly a ringtail possum.

For comprehensive guided tours of the area we recommend these tours. The operators only take small groups ensuring they provide a high quality experience. Daintree Discovery Tours take a full day guided tour to Mossman, Daintree River and Cape Tribulation and also half day tours to Cassowary Falls. Tonys Tropical Tours provide an exclusive World Heritage Rainforest experience to Cape Tribulation which also includes a Noah Valley rainforest swim.
