Caribbean's First Healthy Hour, New Complimentary Wellness Activities Introduced at Top Aruba Hotel

Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort announces a major upgrade to its successful wellness program by introducing the Caribbean’s first and only Healthy Hour. Coupled with this is a significant expansion of its wellness offerings including complimentary activities and classes.

Recognized as the most romantic hotel in the Caribbean in TripAdvisor’s 2017 Travelers’ Choice Awards, Bucuti & Tara boasts a tranquil atmosphere in a boutique, adults-only setting making it the ideal place for couples to relax and achieve a sense of total wellbeing. The resort’s location on the world-famous Eagle Beach allows guests to discover the therapeutic and proven healing properties of the ocean, all while taking advantage of the resort’s newest offerings.

Offering one of the most comprehensive resort wellness programs, healthy-minded couples can now toast one another with nourishing refreshments during Healthy Hour, the first of its kind in the Caribbean. Served with a complimentary wholesome snack 3 to 4 p.m. daily, nutrient-packed smoothies and Bucuti’s craft mocktails are half-price at the guests-only SandBar. 

Bucuti & Tara makes it easy to keep health-focused New Year’s resolutions with an all-new daily rotation of complimentary wellness activities and classes. Beginning January 8, daily offerings rotate with yoga and meditation, Tai Chi on the beach, sunrise beach walks, nutritional counseling, group personal training sessions and chef-led cooking demonstrations of healthy dishes.

“We want to support and inspire our guests, give them knowledge and practical experience so they can live their lives to the fullest while here and long after returning home,” says Ewald Biemans, owner and CEO of Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort. “We are on a mission of continually expanding our healthy lifestyle offerings to provide our guests with the most fulfilling vacation experience possible.”

These new lifestyle enhancements are the latest additions to the resort’s fully customizable wellness program which was introduced in 2016. Led by full-time wellness specialist and a certified nutritionist Isabel Struve-Rasmijn, the program provides guests with tailor-made itineraries to support their individual wellness goals in four areas – nutrition, fitness, mental wellbeing and mindfulness. Guests interested in incorporating a personalized wellness program into their stay at Bucuti can work with the in-house wellness specialists to curate an itinerary of thoughtfully planned dining options, activities, and spa experiences both on and off property. Private beach boot camps, wisdom walks, therapeutic painting, and horse coaching are just a few of the unique experiences that can also be arranged for individuals, couples, or small groups as part of the wellness program. Guests are welcome to develop a plan that best suits their needs, incorporating as many or as few elements as desired. 

All guests can take advantage of the wellness-focused options at Bucuti’s Elements restaurant including healthy portions, flavorful vegan and vegetarian dishes, and plentiful gluten-free options. Wellness specialists are on-hand to help guests make selections and coordinate dietary needs and desires with the chefs for a delicious, wholesome dining experience. Purun Spa offers indoor and outdoor treatments coupling locally-harvested ingredients like aloe with Aruban techniques to tap into the island’s natural healing powers. 

While every guest has access to these offerings, for added ease, Bucuti & Tara just unveiled its Couples Wellness Retreat Package. Guests enjoy five nights in an Oceanfront Tara Suite, daily full American breakfast buffet, welcome amenity including a bottle or organic wine, one-house session with in-house nutritionist to create a personalized meal plan to take home, couples massage in the Spa Beach Hut along with access to the Fitness Center, Wi-Fi and daily wellness activities.
