Going on vacation is, inherently, all about relaxing. While taking a break from the stresses of day-to-day life has a multitude of health benefits, lapsing on healthy habits has the opposite effect. No matter if we spend our vacation at the beach, in the countryside or in the mountains, many people fall into similar unhealthy traps –eating larger portions, forgoing exercise, disregarding nutritional value of meals and increasing alcohol consumption.   

Staying healthy on vacation doesn’t have to mean going on a yoga retreat or completely restricting yourself from having a good time. Instead, instituting a few simple practices and practicing moderation will help you feel your best throughout your vacation and head home free of guilt. Our new Wellness Specialist Isabel Struve-Rasmijn can help you stay on the right track during your vacation at Bucuti or help you launch a commitment to personal health through Bucuti’s fully-customizable wellness program.


In today’s world of constant connectivity, taking a break from day-to-day life is more important than ever. The simple act of going on vacation can help improve your physical health, increase your mental capacity, sharpen your creativity and make you more productive – thus elevating your overall wellness. I am excited to announce that June has been designated as Aruba Aloe Wellness Month here on the island. All month long, we will be highlighting the ways you can incorporate wellness activities into your stay at Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort and embrace the inner serenity that only some time at the beach can provide.

What Makes Us Different

When it comes time to choose a vacation destination, we know you have more choices to consider than ever before. Here in Aruba, we think our One Happy Island is a pretty special place, and we are thankful that so many of you do as well. No matter if you have visited us year after year since we opened more than 25 years ago, or if it is your first time with us, you are part of the family.

Your consistent, honest feedback has allowed us to develop the best resort experience possible. For the past 14 years, Bucuti  & Tara Beach Resort has been the highest rated hotel in Aruba, based upon travelers’ reviews. This year, we were named the top hotel in the Caribbean and the most romantic hotel in the world. In fact, we have received so many awards and accolades that our trophy case (and this blog) doesn’t have room for them all.  

The Truth About Zika

We are in the midst of our busiest time of year here in Aruba and are enjoying welcoming familiar faces and first-time guests for a winter respite. In recent weeks, however, a less inviting issue has arisen – the mosquito-borne Zika virus. Given the prolific news coverage on the topic, we wanted to take this opportunity to share a little more about the situation and how we are addressing it.

Our guests’ wellness is of utmost importance, and we have been proactive at putting measures into place to ensure your comfort and safety. We are working closely with The Aruba Department of Health and are certified as part of their Mosquito-Controlled Hotel Program. In doing so, we have instituted the following practices:

Delectable Dining, Perfectly Portioned

At Bucuti & Tara’s restaurant, Elements, you can now enjoy our diverse fine dining menu choices with perfectly sized healthy portions.

Green Globe certification for 16th year

Bucuti & Tara Beach Resorts, nestled on 14 acres of powder white sand offers secluded, breathtaking views of sparkling blue-green sea on Eagle Beach in Aruba. The acclaimed boutique style resort and its dream beach setting is perfect for couples and honeymooners seeking an eco-romantic destination in the Caribbean.

Romance Reigns

At Bucuti, love is always in the air with guests celebrating romance.  

Romance is described as the pleasurable feeling from an emotional and intimate attraction towards another person. Whether celebrating a honeymoon or anniversary, romantic getaway or simply relaxing and reconnecting, the atmosphere at our intimate resort is known to charm guests into returning time and again to feel the love. 

Beyond the gifts of Mother Nature, all of us at Bucuti are committed to providing you with the ultimate romantic oasis. Let the sparks fly and your heart flutter as we are the only resort of our kind to cater exclusively to adults and couples in Aruba.

Green with Honor, Bucuti Achieves LEED Certification

Here at Bucuti, we are proud to be aiding our world by mitigating our carbon footprint. As long-time stewards of the environment, we are honored to announce our newest eco-designation in the race to halt global warming – LEED® Silver certification.


Nestled steps from our powdery white sand beach and right behind food-forward Elements Restaurant, Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort’s pool is almost like a best kept secret—yet, it’s right out in the open.  

Surrounded with chic, cushioned loungers, the pool’s refreshingly cool waters are a welcome reprieve after a sun-filled day at the beach.

The infinity pool was designed when we first built the Bucuti wing with its 63 rooms. After adding 41 Tara Suites, we had the option to build another pool. So, why didn’t we?

Like so many things at Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort our pool is, in large part, a reflection of our guests’ ideal tropical experience.
