Adopt some of Bucuti's Best Environmental Practices

At the Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort we are dedicated to protect and preserve our environment and are committed to raise awareness within our resort and the community to foster sound environmental practices. Click here to read a more detailed description of our environmental best practices.

Pack for Purpose logo

We are proud members of Pack for a Purpose, an initiative that allows travelers like you to make a lasting impact in the community at your travel destination.  If you save just a few kilos of space in your suitcase, when you travel to Aruba, and bring supplies for a children's home in need.. you'll make a priceless impact in the lives of local children. We work with Children's home Imeldahof.  The home offers shelter and guidance to boys and girls (ages 6-12) who, due to circumstances, cannot live with their parents or caregivers. Supplies needed are: ats & crafts, books, notebooks, games, puzzles, PlayStation3 games, teen magazines. Please click here for more information on Pack for a Purpose. You bring your gift items to our front desk at Bucuti, and we deliver them to Imeldahof once a month. Thank you for your generosity and kindness! 

Green Stay Program

We invite our guests to choose a Green Stay to help conserve water and electricity.  Participation involves full Housekeeping service on 2 days per week only. Trash will be taken from room daily, beds will be made (sheets not replaced), amenities replenished and the dehumidifier will be emptied daily. Turndown service is not included. Green Stay rooms receive a green stay credit of $5 per night.

Join the Bucuti Team on the next Beach Clean Up

Bucuti’s owner and manager, Ewald Biemans created Aruba’s Environmental committee within the Hotel Association in the early 1990’s and one of his early projects was “Sponsor-a-Mile” whereby Aruba Hotel Association committed to keeping one mile of beach or roadside clean. The third Wednesday of the month continues to be Bucuti’s beach cleaning day and hundreds of Aruba’s visitors have participated along the way in partnership with resort staff.

Adopt an Island Dog or Cat

Bucuti offers a program that assists animal-loving guests in adopting “Cunucu” dogs and cats from the island that are in need of a loving home. Guests from the U.S. who wish to adopt a pet in Aruba are encouraged to advise the resort in advance so they can be connected with a local organization that will help find a dog or cat that is the right match. Or, if one of our guests happens to fall in love with a stray while they are here, we are happy to help them out as well. Bucuti covers the costs of any necessary veterinary services, medication and the documentation, as well as a kennel to transport the animal to his new home. (Quarantine restrictions within the E.U. currently prohibit us to extend the program to our European guests.)

Help Animal Rights Aruba build a Shelter

ARA has received a piece of land and a plan was drawn up by a local artchitect.  Funds are needed to build this shelter to help house dogs and cats while they recover from spay & neutering surgery or to await a foster home or adoption after being saved from abuse.  You can donate via bank transfer and help reduce the animal population on the streets.  

Judge a Recycled Crafts Contest

Bucuti's Green Team organizes an event several times a year whereby Bucuti associates are invited to create crafts from recycled items and enter them in a competition. Guests are invited to be judges during a lively celebration and exhibition of the recycled submissions. Events take place at Christmas time (Recycled Christmas crafts), Halloween (Recycled costumes and decor), Spring and Summer. Our concierge team can inform you if an event will take place during your stay.
