Bucuti & Tara
One of Aruba’s most romantic retreats, the adults-only Bucuti & Tara simply exudes peace and tranquillity. Overlooking one of the few ‘Dream Beaches of the World’, powder soft sands and crystal clear waters are yours for the taking; warm trade winds gently brushing against your skin as you soak up the sun. Far from the madding crowds, it is nonetheless a short taxi ride from civilisation should you fancy a night out. We bet though you’ll be hard pushed to venture much further than the ocean’s edge. World-class facilities on-site include a gorgeous salt-water infinity pool to splash about in and the Day Spa, an absolute must-visit. Water sports are always on the agenda, or enjoy tropical views as you sweat it out in the 24/7 fitness centre. A complimentary American buffet breakfast kick-starts each day nicely, eaten al-fresco on the oceanfront deck. Lunch and dinner are also served at Elements Restaurant, showcasing world cuisine with the finest of ingredients. Beforehand, let the expert bartenders at Sandbar mix you a tropical cocktail. Happy Hour is daily from 4:00pm-6:00pm and there’s live steel band music too to get you in the mood for a good night ahead. Make sure to reserve a table at Carte Blanch (well in advance!) for a dining experience that’s as exclusive as it’s unforgettable.
