Famed Romantic Resort Helps Guests Savor Timeless Sweetheart Tradition

Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort is capturing the magic of one of romance’s most classic experiences - the picnic.

Fittingly debuting on Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14, 2020, resort guests can secret away with their “dushi,” native Papiamento for “sweetheart,” with the resort’s new turnkey experience.

A couple needs only to name the day and time for their picnic and from there, their personal romance concierge will prepare their getaway. The picnic includes a travel-ready, perfectly portioned meal for two, beach blanket, large pillows and an insider’s map marked by Bucuti’s romance concierges with Aruba’s most scenic, romantic picnic-worthy hideaways.

Thoughtful selections

The culinary team of its Elements restaurant, one of TripAdvisor’s Top 10 Fine Dining Restaurants in the Caribbean, is known for its exceptional dishes. Heralded for satisfying a variety of discerning palates, they have created a picnic-friendly, gourmet meal. Mediterranean couscous salad, artisanal sandwiches, tropical fruit, cheese and grapes platter paired with wine fill the basket. Real place settings complete the quality romantic ambiance while simultaneously avoiding single-use supplies, which go against the carbon-neutral hotel’s commitment to sustainability.

An island of their own

With the most sunny days throughout the Caribbean, it’s always picnic season in Aruba. Couples can traipse the island making multiple stops or slip away to a secluded spot to while away the afternoon lounging. Bucuti’s romance concierges provide picnicking couples with an insider’s guide to the most romantic hideaways on Aruba. Plentiful venues include snuggling among gentle trade winds in ultra-secluded Boca Prins Beach or other quiet coves in Arikok National Park where white waves crest over the dramatic, rugged north coast landscape, toasting one another at sunset overlooking the island’s California Lighthouse, swimming in seclusion in the crystal-clear waters of serene Rodgers Beach, and hiking Miralamar trail to come upon the breathtaking ocean views of both the leeward and windward sides of Aruba.

Bucuti & Tara is all about romance, which transcends boundaries and appeals to our international guests, so offering a classic, romantic picnic experience to our couples was a natural opportunity,” says Ewald Biemans, owner/CEO of Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort. “Our romance concierges welcome sharing their insider tips so couples can explore our Aruba home, spend an afternoon lounging together, nibbling on fine food, uncorking wine and taking in the scenery and one another. “

This turnkey picnic service is available for just US $70 per couple. For Bucuti & Tara couples wishing to add on a vehicle rental or Jeep rental for more remote adventuring, and even snorkeling gear, their romance concierge can easily coordinate.
