Aruba’s Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort Completes $5M Renovation

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - July 6, 2017

Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort has unveiled the renovations of its oceanfront Tara wing, overlooking Aruba’s famed Eagle Beach.

On July 1, the adults-only enclave welcomed couples to the wing’s new lobby, lounge and each of its 44 beachfront suites and bungalows.

The $5 million renovation represents an average of $100,000 on each suite and bungalow.

Hues of whites, creams and beige are punctuated with rich brown furniture and highlighted with pops of orange amongst a design that works with sleek lines and soothing fabrics.

Each new Tara and Bungalow Suite has a wet bar, and the Penthouse Suites feature full kitchens.

Guest bathrooms are remodeled, but have kept their vanity mirrors with built-in televisions.

Commissioned neo-pop paintings from internationally recognized local artist Elisa Lejuez decorate the accommodations.

A versatile designer, Lejuez’s latest collection for Bucuti features her signature, “colorful, richly patterned canvases,” as described in The New York Times.

Named by Green Globe as the World’s Most Sustainable Hotel/Resort, Bucuti has a 30-year history of using materials that help protect the endangered environment.

All materials including paint and the new high-quality furniture is LEED-approved, a sustainability standard Bucuti incorporates into its work as one of the only LEED Silver certified properties in the Caribbean.

Additionally, a new air conditioning VRF system featuring the latest sustainable technology in the field was installed providing guests with the highest air quality.

“We renovate long before wear and tear begins to appear because we believe Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort’s guests deserve the best experience for choosing to spend their vacation with us,” said Ewald Biemans, owner and CEO of Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort. “The Tara Wing renovation reflects our dedication our guests and to romance, wellness and sustainability.”
