Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort Aruba


This stylish, award-winning and owner-managed resort is a romantic tropical hideaway.

This relaxed low-rise retreat is on an award-winning sweep of white sand and prides itself on being named the Caribbean’s first certified carbon-neutral resort. It was voted 1st in the Caribbean for service and also romance at the 2019 TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards, so find your chosen spot and make the most of the incredible frosted-sand surroundings. Discover the hotel’s wellness program, with activities including yoga, t’ai chi and cooking demonstrations, based around four areas – nutrition, fitness, mental wellbeing and mindfulness.

The oceanfront Elements Restaurant serves up European and Caribbean flavours with a focus on organic fresh produce. The exclusive chef’s table, Senses, is open for dinner five nights a week. It’s extremely popular, and with just 16 seats, you’ll need to book far in advance. For drinks there’s the open-air Sand Bar which has a daily happy hour and live steel band music. In addition to its regular lunch and dinner menu, the hotel now has a popular vegan menu, with gluten-free options also available.

Rooms and suites are divided between the Bucuti Wing and Tara Beach Wing. Rooms in the Bucuti Wing have views of the resort, tropical gardens or ocean. There are also three Bungalow Suites, which have a kitchenette and wrap-around terrace. Junior Suites are on the second and third floors of the Bucuti Wing, and feature a kitchen, seating area and views over the beautiful Eagle Beach. Tara Suites are oceanfront with a living room. For the best views, opt for an exclusive Tara Penthouse Suite on the rooftop.
