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.

    go to relax

    Everything is perfect. Great place if you are coming to relax, to enjoy good food, refreshing beverages, beautiful beach, and be carbon neutral. Best place to reconnect with your significant other as there is no rush to do anything. We won't stay anywhere else.

    No better resort to be found!

    If you want a luxury resort with beautiful accommodations and a gorgeous and uncrowded beach (no kids!), terrific food, great bar and stunning sunsets, look no further than the Bucuti and Tara resort. Stayed there the last week in Feb. All the staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome and you do feel they are happy you are there. The sunset dinner on the beach was fantastic. It's also great not to have to chase down a lounge chair each day as they have more than enough for all guests. It isn't cheap but we felt it was worth every $$. You can't go wrong staying there.

    Absolutely Stunning Resort

    This resort by far has out-lived all our expectations! Top notch from the second you arrive to the second you leave! This is a couples paradise..it’s romantic, a bit more secluded & the owner is a class act! If we do stay in the Eagle beach low-rise area again, this resort without a doubt, is our choice of stays! Can’t wait to return, once this Covid19 clears up! For now, all we can do is dream!

    Almost Got There

    My wife and I have never been to Aruba. We were booked at the Bucuti & Tara from 3/15 to 3/22. I had been up all night, conflicted on whether or not to go because of Coronavirus. I had just received notification from my place of work that I would have to quarantine for two weeks at home upon our return. I finally cancelled literally 90 minutes before our flight. Needless to say I was worried about how much we would be penalized by the hotel. Our travel agent contacted the Bucuti and told them of our situation. They agreed to give us a FULL refund or we could rebook until December of 2021. This goes far and above good customer service, this is great customer service! Since this happened I've read of other hotels charging their guests, or basically doing nothing for them, or giving them all kinds of grief to get even a portion of a refund. We did a lot of homework before booking the Bucuti and I'm glad we did. They are the real deal, and we haven't even stayed there yet! Once the world gets back to normal we will be booking another trip to this hotel. This is how you treat your customers. Thank you so much Bucuti Team! John & Deb P

    Great Stay Last week!

    We had to get out of Vermont last minute and was able to book at the Bucuti & Tara which we have wanted to stay at since we were in Aruba in the Fall. Nice and quiet... Beautiful Beach and cabanas have lots of space between them.... Adults only is nice too! Would definetly go back. Had a Lunar Halo over us one day that was quite spectacular too!
