COVID-19 Vaccination Now Mandated for All Guests at Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort

100% Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort staff already fully vaccinated.

Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort is continuing its promise to provide the Caribbean’s safest, healthiest vacation experience. Its staff is already 100% fully vaccinated against COVID-19. In the resort’s next step, beginning December 23, 2021, all guests are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.


Providing proof of vaccination

On any given day, Bucuti & Tara welcomes guests from an average of 25 different countries worldwide. This new vaccine mandate provides a heightened measure of safety and is a benefit to guests returning to countries with COVID-19 reentry requirements. 


Guests must provide proof of vaccination no less than 30 days prior to their arrival to avoid the cancellation of their reservation. This coincides with Bucuti & Tara’s return to its 30-day cancellation policy. 

Accepted vaccinations are Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson, and AstraZeneca. The acceptable proof includes:

  • For US citizens: CDC Vaccination Card - a physical card or scan or photo or digital record
  • For EU citizens: EU Digital COVID Certificate (DCC) or Green Pass
  • For other nationalities, the record as issued by the organization officially recognized to issue the COVID vaccination certificates


Guests can submit proof of their COVID-19 vaccination record in one of two ways:

  • Email with either a pdf copy of their digital/QR code of their COVID-19 vaccination record or provide a photo or scan of their official COVID-19 vaccination card,
  • Or, upload the .pdf or photo by completing the advance check-in on


Files must include the guest’s first and last name and match that on the reservation. The full procedure and details for this new guest vaccination mandate are located here
