Laidback Luxury, not Glitz and Glam


At Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort, we offer our guests a simpler pace of life during their stay in Aruba. The Bucuti experience is upscale, while remaining comfortable, intimate, welcoming, and reflective of the spirit of our One Happy Island. We provide a serene, adults-only atmosphere perfect for kicking back, relaxing, and connecting.

We like to think of it as “Laidback Luxury”. This concept defines us and is evident in everything that we do.

The laidback luxury ethos is on full display in all categories of our guestrooms. The most exclusive experience can be found in four rooftop penthouse suites with panoramic views of the Caribbean and large private terraces with daybeds perfect for cozying up under the sun. Other special touches include a four-poster bed, a spa-inspired bathroom with claw-foot tubs, and private cabana access. The spacious and contemporary Tara Suites set the stage for romance with oceanfront balconies that make the most of Bucuti’s location on the white sands of Eagle Beach. Across the grounds, the recently renovated guestrooms in the Bucuti Wing each feature a large private balcony or terrace.  

Every element of design and comfort is taken into account in all of our guestrooms, right down to our purifier and dehumidifier systems that ensure fresh, clean air and a pleasant night’s sleep. Our rooms also allow guests to feel connected to the spirit of the island with locally-made Aruba Aloe bath products.

The atmosphere found in our guestrooms is present throughout the resort, which allows the couples who visit us the chance to truly disconnect from outside distractions and reconnect with each other. Our highly personalized service also supports togetherness, as guests can spend less time planning and more time enjoying themselves. This is evident from the moment a complimentary glass of champagne is served upon arrival. A personal concierge provides each guest with VIP treatment and is available to customize their Bucuti experience as much or as little as desired – from booking dinner reservations around Aruba to arranging spa treatments, island excursions, and more.

More than anything, our guests want to spend time on our pristine beach. The section of Eagle Beach where Bucuti sits is spacious, peaceful, and calming, with luxurious lounge chairs to accommodate every guest. No need to rise early to stake out chairs at Bucuti!

Those who opt for fresh water will find our bright and airy pool deck a delightful spot that is sophisticated but never pretentious. Our red flag service at the beach and pool allows guests to raise their individual flag when they would like assistance from our attendants and leave it down to remain free from interruption – a completely personalized experience.

When it’s time for a meal, Elements Restaurant provides a touch of elegance, with four-star service and inspired cuisine in a tranquil environment. Guests can rest easy knowing that the expert culinary team is skilled at accommodating any and all dietary needs and preferences. Sitting back and enjoying the waves lap at the shoreline is the only thing guests have to worry about at Elements, whether dining on our outdoor deck or in our inviting, air-conditioned dining room. For an extra special romantic experience, couples can enjoy a 5-course meal with spectacular sunset views from their private palapa on award-winning Eagle Beach.

Our Wellness Program brings luxury and wellbeing together, providing guests the chance to take part in fitness classes and outdoor activities at some of the most scenic spots around the island. The Wellness Program is tailored to guests’ individual needs and goals and is led by our full time wellness specialist who can incorporate activities focused on nutrition, fitness, mental wellbeing, and mindfulness. We even help book classes and appointments prior to arrival to make things as easy and seamless as possible. This includes treatments at the calming Purun Spa and oceanfront spa cabanas where the best of Aruba is celebrated in island-inspired treatments.

If this type of experience sounds like what you are looking for, we hope to have you as our guest soon. If you prefer a different type of luxury, there are plenty of wonderful hotels and resorts in Aruba to consider. No matter your preference, I encourage you to interact with resorts’ social media pages and read online reviews to get a sense of the atmosphere and hear directly what other guests have to say.

With peace, love and happiness….naturally
