Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort recognized by Travel + Leisure.

Trusted travel media outlet Travel + Leisure just named Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort to its prestigious 2018 Top 25 Resorts in the Caribbean, Bermuda and the Bahamas. The Eagle Beach resort is the only property on Aruba to earn a spot on the highly-coveted list.

Adding to the news, the island itself was named to the 2018 Top 15 Islands in the Caribbean, Bermuda and the Bahamas.

“Every year, we ask Travel + Leisure readers to rank their travel experiences across the globe for our World’s Best Awards,” says Nathan Lump, editor in chief of Travel + Leisure. “Now in its 23rd year, the Awards highlight the cities, islands, hotels, airports, spas, cruises — and much more — that define the very best in travel.


“It’s an honor to be recognized by our guests and readers of Travel + Leisure as one of the top 10 resorts in the Caribbean,” says says Ewald Biemans, CEO and owner of Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort. “We love being the destination of choice for our guests. This is another testament to the dedication of our talented hospitality professionals who strive to ensure every Bucuti & Tara vacation is wonderfully memorable.”
