VIP Escorted Airport - 

  • Your special occasion begins the moment you step off the plane as you are immediately welcomed by your ’handlers’ and whisked through airport security to the VIP ’green room’ where you will be toasted and celebrated with a glass of champagne before receiving your luggage and proceeding to the front of the immigration and customs areas where your team quickly ushers you through to your luxurious black car complete with a “Just Married” decoration.  Five miles later you will be welcomed at the curb by your Bucuti & Tara Romance Concierge who will escort you to our Champagne reception area where you will receive a cold towel and a chilled flute of Champagne to enjoy while you bypass the check- in area and are briefed about the resort and all the pleasures that await on award winning Eagle Beach at Bucuti & Tara as you are guided to your suite sanctuary.  Contact our concierge for more information.

Wellness Specialist

We are pleased to upgrade Aruba’s only fully customized resort wellness program. Our Wellness Specialists employ a personalized, hands-on approach to help guests stay healthy, fit and feeling their best during their time in Aruba and beyond. We work with our guests to create customized programs that support their overall wellness goals in the areas of Nutrition, Physical Fitness, and Mental Wellbeing. For a tailored wellness plan to address your  individualized needs in Nutrition, Fitness, or Mental Wellbeing, please email our Wellness team.

A Breath of Fresh Air

In order to provide all our guests with ultimate comfort throughout their stay all rooms, suites and their balconies, and public areas are non-smoking except for 3 designated areas.   We view this policy change as a further extension of our commitment to create a total sense of wellness for Bucuti guests and coincides with our LEED certification.

Elements Restaurant

Aruba’s first restaurant with dedicated Vegan menus in addition to our Caribbean and International menu.  Our Chef is personally dedicated to those with special diets, such as Gluten free and the restaurant overall allows guests the opportunity to enjoy natural and organic dining in the presence of breathtaking views.
Whether dining on the oceanfront deck or enjoying beautiful Eagle Beach indoors via the floor-to-ceiling windows, Elements is an ideal complement to the serene environment for which Bucuti has become known. The new culinary offering’s ambiance and menu serve as an extension of Bucuti’s mission to provide guests with a total sense of wellness by showcasing the beauty of Aruba’s natural environment with the quality of carefully sourced ingredients.
Wholesome dinner menu options feature genuine, certified organic and natural products offered through four distinct menus: world cuisine, organic & natural, gluten free, and vegan and vegetarian.   Elements is open daily serving breakfast from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., lunch from 12:00 noon to 5:00 p.m. and dinner from 6:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.


No Cash Accepted

As a friendly reminder, please keep in mind that we are a cashless resort – meaning we do not accept cash on property, including at the restaurant and bar. All major credit cards are accepted and room-signing privileges are available for all services at the resort except down payments of activities purchased via our concierges. We also advise our guests to let their banks know, prior to their arrival, that they will be using their credit or debit card abroad. This will avoid any difficulty using the card while on vacation.


No Kidding Around

As the only boutique-style beach resort in Aruba catering exclusively to adults, we are able to perfect the tranquil vacation experience our guests are seeking.  Bucuti is a place where people come to relax and reconnect and this policy has enabled us to truly focus on being an environment where that is possible.
What guests may notice is that there can be children on the beach at times. While no children are permitted as guests at Bucuti, the beaches of Aruba are public and, therefore, open to all.
There are many beach hotel options here on the beautiful island of Aruba but only one that focuses on creating a peaceful romantic environment exclusively for adults. We are proud to be different and look forward to being a part of many couples’ love stories for years to come.


Peace, Love & Happiness. Naturally.
