Tranquil and romantic resort for Adults only on Aruba's Eagle Beach. Beachfront Elements Restaurant offers organic, vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free menus and World Cuisine.


Aruba’s only boutique resort that caters exclusively to adults, the 104-room Bucuti & Tara Beach Resorts is situated on 14 palm-studded acres along Eagle Beach. Nestled on the widest, most secluded section of beach, this European-inspired resort is designed to provide couples with an unrivaled tranquil experience in a romantic atmosphere.

The Bucuti Wing has 63 rooms including 48 superior guest rooms, 10 deluxe guest rooms, three bungalows and two junior suites. The five-story building housing Tara Suites features 36 ocean view suites, four penthouse suites and one deluxe room. All rooms and suites feature a sophisticated and comfortable interior design.

All rooms and suites have a microwave, mini bar, in-room safe, hair dryer, iron and ironing board, large balcony or terrace, cable television, WiFi, locally made Aruba Aloe toiletries, coffee maker, air conditioning, ceiling fan, direct dial phones and king or queen sized beds. Additionally each room is equipped with dehumidifiers and air-purifiers with HEPA filters to keep the air clean, free or allergens and odor-free.

Guests will enjoy dining at one of three on-site dining options. Bucuti’s most recent addition, Elements, is Aruba’s first and only restaurant that affords guests the opportunity to enjoy natural and organic dining in the presence of breathtaking views. Whether dining on the newly-constructed 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 menu options feature genuine, certified organic options and natural products offered through three distinct menus: world cuisine, organic and natural, and vegan and vegetarian.

A complimentary American buffet breakfast is also served daily on the beachfront deck. Guests seeking a more casual atmosphere can enjoy the recently renovated SandBar. The modern outdoor lounge area is exclusively open to Bucuti guests and provides a relaxing spot to enjoy a cocktail and stargaze or take in the sunset. SandBar also offers lunch service featuring a combination of classic favorites and island flavors.

Also new to Bucuti is the resort’s partnership with the top-rated, Carte Blanche restaurant. Praised by locals and visitors alike, Carte Blanche offers diners a unique culinary experience based around a chef’s table concept. The focal point of the restaurant is Chef Dennis van Daatselaar preparing a five-course "chef surprise" meal before the diner’s eyes. Fine wines and premium drinks are paired with the meal, expertly selected and presented by the charming Maitre d’ Glen Bonset. Evenings at Carte Blanche are an event filled with laughter, conversation and exquisite flavors.

Situated on world-famous Eagle Beach, in the low rise district between the airport and Palm Beach, Bucuti is nearby all major attractions including world-class shopping, a variety of restaurants, the Divi Links nine-hole golf course and Arikok National Park.

Bucuti has been a leader in promoting sustainable tourism in the Caribbean for more than 20 years. In addition to incorporating the highest level of eco-friendly practices into daily operations, owner Ewald Biemans spearheads a number of widely-recognized environmental initiatives and is committed to educating guests and the local community on the importance of conservation. Bucuti also has a number of green certifications including ISO 14001, Green Globe 21 and Travelife Gold.

Bucuti includes all taxes and fees as well as a number of additional benefits in the room rate including a full American breakfast buffet daily, local calls, Wi-Fi throughout the entire property and complimentary use of an iPad (with Skype installed) in the privacy of each guestroom.

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   I can't say enough good about this resort. Just...wow. It is perfectly as advertised, and our stay could not have been better. From the very first contact with staff, to the very last, everyone was wonderful and accommodating, super friendly at every turn. Our room was comfortable, the grounds were beautiful, and the beach chairs and umbrellas were exactly what we wanted in paradise. Highly recommended - we didn't want to leave, and will most certainly be back!

Review:   We loved this very small and quiet boutique, adult only resort. We never had a problem getting a chair and umbrella by the pool or beach. We decided if we wanted the craziness of the Palm Beach high rise area we could go visit it and come back to our quiet place. We stayed in a bungalow and absolutely LOVED it. We were just steps to the beach and pool. We will come back. Most people we talked to have stayed here before and are back for a 2nd or more visit.

Review:   Hands down the best beach and resort in Aruba (huge plus being an adults only resort). Location is excellent and the property and amenities are outstanding. Only drawback is the dining on resort. The resort restaurant Elements has its moments but even after numerous meals we were unable to find consistent, quality dishes. Food is hit and miss overall.

Review:   We had a fabulous time at B&T resort. Some of the highlights: - One of the best on-resort restaurants we have ever experienced. Portions were huge, quality was amazing. Lots of healthy options. - Beachside service was friendly and prompt. - We never had to fight to get loungers on the beach, even "claiming" as late as 10am. - Concierge presented many great options for excursions and never let us down with non-touristy dining options. The resort itself is on a private stretch of Eagle beach. It was calm, not crowded, soft sand. We had been told by many that it was the island's best beach and did not disappoint. One of our pictures is from room 306, a Tara Beach Suite, allowing us to walk out of our room (which was nice, clean, well appointed, albeit it not huge) straight to the beach, bar and restaurant.
