Overview

Adults-only property with romantic amenities like private beach dinners, couples massages and Romance Concierges
Room rates are expensive and do not cover lunches, dinners and drinks

Resting on 14 sandy acres close to Aruba's westernmost point, Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort is a boutique, adults-only property that emphasizes environmental protection. Its 104 guest rooms, suites and penthouses offer intimacy and seclusion, along with private balconies or terraces, free Wi-Fi access and locally sourced Aruba Aloe bath products to use in solar-heated walk-in showers. Recent guests heap accolades on the guest rooms' views of Eagle Beach and the romantic, kid-free environment. Yes, this hotel is a splurge, but many past visitors said it's worth every penny. Sweethearts can dine in a private cabana on the beach (a favorite experience for many travelers) or at the poolside, oceanfront Elements restaurant. Though room rates do not cover lunches, dinners and drinks, a free breakfast buffet is available daily. Additional amenities found on-site include a fitness center, a spa, an infinity pool and a gift shop.

Set on Eagle Beach among the palm trees in the low-rise district, this resort is big on going green, with certifications including 'Travelife Gold' and 'Green Globe 21.' The eco-conscious will love that in addition to saving electricity and towels, the resort sources local products, uses solar-heated water for rooms and laundry, and reduces water usage throughout the complex.
