International Media Recognizes Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort for Best Vacation Experience

Bucuti & Tara is pleased to share it has been recognized by both U.S. News & World Report and USA Today 10 Best for offering Aruba’s top vacation.

USA Today 10Best

Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort was named among the 10Best Caribbean Resorts 2019 and Elements restaurant was honored as one of the 10Best Caribbean Restaurants 2019. For the Readers’ Choice Awards, travel experts selected 20 Caribbean establishments as nominees and winners were determined by a much-followed, reader-driven poll. Bucuti & Tara was the only Aruba property named as a 10Best winner.

U.S. News & World Report

U.S. News & World Report once again named Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort the No. 1 Best Hotel on Aruba, honoring it with its coveted Best Hotels Gold Badge. The adults-only enclave was also named among the Top 20 Best Hotels in the Caribbean.

The methodology considers a hotel's star rating and both expert and guest sentiment by collecting annual awards from distinguished travel publications and TripAdvisor user scores, the combination of which helps determine each hotel's rank. Five million people visit U.S. News Travel each month seeking advice on vacations and hotel accommodations. The editors research thousands of hotels, collect dozens of data points and use an unbiased approach to calculate the rankings.

Ewald Biemans, owner/CEO of Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort expresses his gratitude sharing “it is an honor to be recognized as Aruba's leading hotel among travel experts and our wonderful guests according to USA TODAY and U.S. News & World Report. The biggest attribute of these accolades is our Bucuti associates, the heart of our resort, who consistently strive for a more inspired stay experience for our guests to create everlasting memories.”

Award season has been gracious to Bucuti & Tara. In January, the resort was honored with four highly coveted TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Awards: Top 10 Best Hotels for Romance in the World, No. 1 Hotel for Romance – Caribbean, No. 1 Hotel – Caribbean and No. 1 Hotel for Service – Caribbean.
