Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort: Discover Romance, Boutique Style

Imagine an oasis of unparalleled tranquility, nestled on 14 acres of pristine powder white beach. A beach so magnificent that "Dream Beaches of the World" designated it as one of the Caribbean's top ten. Crystal clear turquoise waters, romantic tropical sunsets painting the sky, delicious cuisine to savor and nothing to disturb your peace and serenity. Centered between downtown Oranjestad and Palm Beach on Eagle Beach, Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort is centrally located near all major attractions. At Bucuti, you get personal service and European charm on a lovely stretch of one of the Caribbean's best beaches, the most secluded part of Eagle Beach. Brides Magazine named this resort one of the top 20 BEST Honeymoon Hotels in the Caribbean.

This is a great Adults Only (18+) hotel, especially if you are looking for a quiet, restful escape. The Tara Beach Suites are perfect for honeymooners. Each suite is located right on the oceanfront, has a big balcony or terrace with beautiful wooden and upholstered furnishings, and the striking king bed allows for an incredible beach and oceanfront view. The resort's frontage on Eagle Beach extends for 200 yards, is 150 yards deep, and features widely spaced beach loungers and umbrellas. A freshwater infinity swimming pool is available and a cool-water tub sits on the pool's sundeck. Motorized watersports are barred in front of the resort, but watersports are available from independent vendors farther north. You can workout in the air conditioned fitness center and stay connected using the hotel's 24-hour Wi-Fi access. Bucuti's full-time concierge staff will organize any sport, watersport or tour for your enjoyment.

Bucuti & Tara Resort is extremely popular with couples because of their determined efforts to maintain peace and quiet. Environmental awareness is another theme. Cactus gardens, palm trees, and expansive lawns maintained with recycled water substitute for water-demanding plants such as flowering bushes. For the sophisticated traveler, head to a nearby spa where they offer a wide variety of treatments with organic and indigenous products. So lay back, relax and enjoy!

    Paradise - One Happy Island

    This was our second trip to Bucuti... and we can't wait for our third! We'll probably never go to another island or resort. Part of our heart is in Aruba at Bucuti. Bucuti has set the bar too high - we know we'll be disappointed if we go anywhere else! Amazing location, beautiful resort and amenities, eco-friendly, delicious food and bar, best beach on the island, the absolute best staff.... I could go on and on. If you're reading this review and wondering if you should book.... seriously, stop reading right now and book! You will not regret it.

    The hotel, the rooms, the food and the beach are awesome! Highly recommend this hotel. They are even making sure they stay innovative by adapting their hotel to the new standards of social distancing and hygiene.
