For as long as I have been a part of Bucuti & Tara – thirty-two years now - I have taken great pride and pleasure knowing I was part of something bigger and more rewarding than simply a resort hotel operation.


If you follow us on social media, you have learned that Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort has been named by TripAdvisor as the #1 most romantic resort in the Caribbean and the #8 most romantic resort in the World…yes!...the World!

“The Leatherback Turtles are Aruba’s oldest repeat guests” says Edith van der Wal, the president of Turtugaruba, the local foundation dedicated to protecting the Leatherback’s nesting on our Eagle Beach. “Leatherbacks have been nesting in Aruba for thousands of years” Edith and her volunteers disperse to beaches all around Aruba during nesting and hatching seasons to also look after Loggerhead, Green and Hawksbill turtles too.
