Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort is beginning the new year with a long list of honors naming the adults-only Aruba resort among the top hotels in the Caribbean.  The resort has been recognized by the prestigious U.S. News & World Report and TripAdvisor®, starting the new year off with great success!

U.S. News & World Report named Bucuti as the No. 1 Hotel in Aruba and among the Best in the Caribbean for the second year in a row.  Each year, the publication ranks hotels for offering exceptional customer service and luxury amenities. 

The same week USA Today published results of their 2017 reader’s poll and highlighted Bucuti as one of the 10 Best hotels in the Caribbean.  

TripAdvisor®, the world’s largest travel review website, honored Bucuti with three 2017 Travelers' Choice awards. Heralded for being a tranquil and intimate retreat, Bucuti is named the No. 1 Hotel for Romance in the Caribbean. The guest-centric hotel is also honored in Top 10 Hotels for Service in the Caribbean and Top 10 Hotels in the Caribbean overall.

“We’re deeply grateful to be recognized by both U.S. News & World Report and TripAdvisor for the outstanding experience shared by our loyal guests and for recognizing our dedicated Bucuti associates,” says Ewald Biemans, Bucuti’s owner and noted environmentalist.

U.S. News & World Report

A national publisher of consumer advice and information, U.S. News & World Report’s annual evaluation honors hotels that 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.  As the only Gold badge winner on Aruba for scoring in the top 10 percent of the Best Hotels in the Caribbean, Bucuti exceeded the strict criteria set by U.S. News.

“The award-winning hotels on the U.S. News Best Hotels rankings meet the standards of both everyday travelers and industry experts in offering exceptional customer service and luxury amenities," said Erin Shields, travel editor at U.S. News.


TripAdvisor’s annual Travelers' Choice awards are the highest honor it gives - meaning Bucuti is truly exceptional. Based on reviews and opinions from millions of travelers, Bucuti is in the top 1 percent of hotels worldwide.
