Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort

Coming off the heels of its recent designation as the No. 1 Hotel in the Caribbean and among the Top 10 Hotels in the World by TripAdvisor®, Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort has just been recognized as the No. 1 Hotel in Aruba and among the Best in the Caribbean by U.S. News & World Report.

A national publisher of consumer advice and information, U.S. News & World Report’s annual evaluation honors hotels that offer exceptional experiences and high-quality amenities. Adding to the honors, Aruba’s premier adults-only boutique hotel received the AAA Four Diamond award for the second year in a row.

"We’re flattered to receive awards from both U.S. News & World Report and AAA for the exceptional experience noted by our loyal guests and for recognizing our talented staff,” said Bucuti’s owner and noted environmentalist Ewald Biemans."

U.S. News & World Report

As the only Aruba hotel to be recognized among the Best in the Caribbean, Bucuti exceeded the strict criteria set by U.S. News. The Best Hotels consistently receive a four- to five-star rating, uphold an exceptional reputation among professional travel experts and guests, and earn accolades from distinguished travel industry sources. U.S. News rankings feature over 2,500 luxury hotels, identifying the top 10 percent in the United States, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean and the top 30 percent within specific markets.

“Travelers don’t have to waste time searching for a great hotel,” said Erin Shields, travel editor for U.S. News. “The 2016 Best Hotels are adored by industry experts and travelers alike for their great amenities, comfortable rooms and exemplary service.”


For 80 years, AAA has used professional inspectors to conduct in-person rigorous, comprehensive on-site property evaluations. The AAA Four Diamond Hotels must be refined and stylish with upscale physical attributes and extensive amenities while also providing a high degree of hospitality, service and attention to detail. The exclusive group represents just 5.7 percent of the nearly 28,000 AAA/CAA Approved and Diamond Rated hotels.
