Aruba At Your Doorstep

Glide on the calm Caribbean Sea aboard a sleek catamaran while the sun sets in striking orange and red. Sip a fruity tropical drink at one of Aruba’s many lounges or nightspots or marvel over the artifacts from Aruba’s first inhabitants at the Archaeological Museum of Aruba. At Bucuti & Tara Beach Resorts, Aruba is at your doorstep.

Beyond the idyllic beaches, Aruba is a cultural treasure. The charming architecture of Oranjestad, with its pastel-colored gables, little boutiques, local food stands and cafés, invites visitors to wander the town’s picturesque streets. Stop by Fort Zoutman, the oldest remnant of Dutch architecture. As you explore our island, you’ll be delighted by the warm smiles and welcoming spirit of the local people.

In addition to our own restaurants, you’ll find some of the Caribbean’s best eateries here, specializing in fresh seafood, Brazilian-style steak, local Aruban fare, European cuisine and more.

The Bucuti & Tara Beach Resorts are centrally located near all major attractions including Oranjestad, three miles south, and Palm Beach, three miles north.

A Natural Paradise

If you want to know the real Aruba, the Aruba where you can hear the distinctive whistle of the native Trupial or watch gentle giant turtles nesting on the beach, then Bucuti & Tara Beach Resorts is for you. 

Far from the crowds of the high-rise hotels, Bucuti & Tara Beach Resorts offer a completely different escape – an uncrowded beach, environmental stewardship and an unspoiled paradise. We have the highest palapa-to-guest ratio in Aruba, so you can always find some shade if you want it!

Situated on 14 acres of the powder white sands of beautiful Eagle Beach, Bucuti is a haven for beach and nature lovers alike. Our beautiful gardens are filled with indigenous plants, exotic palms and colorful flowers that are native to Aruba’s unique desert ecosystem. An early leader in Aruba’s environmental movement, Bucuti’s sustainability policies are deeply woven into our company culture and are renowned in Aruba and throughout the Caribbean.

So come and explore our little piece of heaven. Go for a walk in nearby Arikok National Park or explore Aruba’s famous sites, including the Alto Vista Chapel and the Natural Pool. Bird watchers might spot Tara’s  resident Peregrine Falcon “Perry” as he migrates north or south each year, or Aruba’s burrowing owl. Adventurers will love to snorkel or scuba dive through the famous Antilla wreck, covered with giant tube sponges and coral formations and surrounded by colorful reef fish.
