Condé Nast Traveler Readers Name Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort one of the Caribbean's Best

Condé Nast Traveler today announced the results of its 29th annual Readers’ Choice Awards with Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort recognized as one of the Top 40 Resorts in the Caribbean.

“It is always an honor to be recognized by the discerning travelers and readers of Condé Nast Traveler magazine, and to be included among such a highly regarded group of resorts in the region,” says Ewald Biemans, founder and CEO. “I’m proud of our Bucuti associates. This award honors their exceptional commitment to guest service and to providing a memorable vacation experience.”

Over 300,000 dedicated readers – nearly twice as many as last year -- cast votes for 7,394 hotels, 606 cities, 500 cruise ships, and 236 islands. The result? The 1,402 best travel experiences in the world.
