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.


Timing is everything.  According to a recent Washington Post article, it’s the difference between a great meal and a dining experience that left a bad taste in your mouth. The recent trend of clearing plates the moment guests have finished dining, rather than waiting until all guests have finished, as has long been the service custom, led the writer to call it “the most annoying restaurant trend happening today.”

Have fun in the sun but please remember…

As you may know, Aruba has more sunny days than any other Caribbean island and we recognize that our visitors are here to take advantage of the sun, sand and sea. With our resort being located on world-renowned Eagle Beach, we realize that our guests plan to spend most of their time relaxing on the beach sipping tropical drinks and enjoying our cooling trade winds. Of course we encourage our guests to do so but to keep in mind that Aruba is very close to the equator and the trade winds tend to mask the intensity of the hot sun.


The Bucuti & Tara team and I love Aruba and believe that our island has something special to offer all travelers, from adventurers and thrill-seekers, to families with small kids, to couples celebrating their honeymoon or wedding anniversary.  We notice that many great resorts on Aruba also try to be everything to everybody, hosting families, honeymooners, destination weddings, private parties and conventions all at the same time.

At Bucuti, we do the opposite; we choose to focus solely on travelers who are seeking romance and tranquility.  Instead of trying to please everyone visiting Aruba, we specialize in offering an intimate and peaceful environment with privacy and unobtrusive, caring service.

Sea Turtle Nesting and Hatching on Eagle Beach

Each year, from March through July, thousands of sea turtles make their way to the Caribbean to nest. Sea turtles return to the beach where they were born to nest after reaching maturity. Many Leatherback Turtles nest on Eagle Beach, meaning our guests may have the opportunity to witness this emotional and beautiful experience.

For many, experiencing a nesting turtle or watching a baby hatchling make their way to the sea is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Bucuti recognizes this, so during turtle season we have a call list which guests can sign up to watch the Leatherback Turtles as they come ashore to lay their eggs or to watch the tiny hatchlings make their incredible passage to the ocean for the first time.

To Do or Not To Do

I am proud to announce that Bucuti was named the Caribbean’s best hotel in TripAdvisor’s 2015 Traveler’s Choice Awards. We are extremely grateful for our past guests who helped us achieve this top ranking by sharing their experiences with positive reviews and insider tips. Of course, none of this would be possible without our amazing, dedicated staff, who put forth so much effort to ensure that guests feel like VIPs throughout their stay.

In looking for inspiration for today’s blog post, I ran across an article titled “Top 10 Things Not to Do at a Hotel.” I found it worthwhile to share its points and expand upon them in an effort to help set the right expectations. 

Why Aruba?

As owner of Bucuti & Tara Beach Resorts, I often get asked how I chose Aruba out of all the beautiful islands in the Caribbean. In today’s post, I’ll discuss with you the many reasons why I, as well as millions of travelers from across the globe, have chosen Aruba and why the island has one of the highest repeat visitation rates in the Caribbean.
