We are often asked by our guests what Bucuti means and why the name Tara? The answers are simple and I am happy to share the story.

Like many visitors, I fell in love with the island of Aruba while on holiday.


A main reason Bucuti is one of the most beloved resorts in Aruba is our location on Eagle Beach. The pristine wide stretch of sand has been designated as one of the top beaches in the world attracting visitors from both near and far.

While our resort area is reserved exclusively for our guests we cannot deny beach access to anyone, as all beaches here in Aruba are public.

Fortunately, we do not have a major issue with crowds coming to our beach, which allows us to maintain a tranquil atmosphere, however there are occasional outside visitors.


In Malcolm Gladwell’s wildly successful book, The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference, the tipping point is described as "that magical moment when an idea, trend or social behavior crosses a threshold, tips, and spreads like wildfire".

For the hospitality industry such a moment is upon us and it is what industry veteran Ray Burger has playfully referred to as ?The Dripping Point?.
