Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort, Aruba

Aruba's adults-only, eco-friendly oasis

Stretched across 14 acres along Eagle Beach — one of the island’s best strips of sand — Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort, Aruba is suitable for relaxing (it’s adults only), romance (a romance concierge will plan an amorous itinerary), adventure (choose from plenty of land- and sea-based activities) and wellness (partake in the dedicated program).

But there’s much more this beach retreat. Bucuti is the most eco-certified and first carbon-neutral resort in the Caribbean. It also was the first hotel in the world to win the prestigious Global United Nations 2020 Climate Neutral Now Award, which previously was given to large international companies. But this boutique hotel with just 104 accommodations is an eco pioneer. You will feel good about staying here in every sense.
