Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort

L.G. Smith Blvd. 55B, Eagle Beach, n/a Aruba, Aruba

An extraordinary beach setting, impeccable personal service, and attention to detail help this elegant Green Globe resort easily outclass anything else on the island. It's also extremely LGBT-friendly and the only luxury boutique, adult-only hotel on the island, with recently refurbished suites and rooms in both buildings and a new modern indoor/outdoor dining room. Elements has a stellar sea view and a great selection of healthy, organic, and even vegan fare that add to the allure. Hacienda-style buildings are surrounded by ecologically sensitive landscaping cresting a gorgeous pool and whirlpool and a new spa for guests only called Purun. The beachside bar is now only for resort guests as well. Bucuti rooms are done in cool creams and feature walnut furnishings; the Tara Suites have unbeatable beach and sunset vistas. All rooms operate in an eco-friendly manner without sacrificing luxury. The resort achieved Silver Leed Certification in 2015. Book early as they are typically 98% full.
