Bucuti Beach Resort - Palm/Eagle Beach, Aruba
Bucuti Beach Resort on Arubas Eagle Beach is a quiet destination for honeymooners, single adults and couples. Just three miles north of downtown Oranjestad, the resort maintains a secluded feel but is still close to shopping, dining and natural attractions such as the Bulbali Bird Sanctuary.
Spacious guest rooms are done in a contemporary style with dark wood furniture and cream-colored linens with slate and rust accents. All overlook either the gardens or the Caribbean Sea. Set right on the oceanfront, the more exclusive Tara Beach Suites are one-bedroom suites located in an adults-only wing. All guestrooms and suites feature Divine Dreams pillow-top mattresses made exclusively for the resort.
The Pirates Nest restaurant, built as a replica of a Dutch galleon ship, provides an American breakfast buffet, sandwiches and entrees at lunch, and steaks and fresh seafood for dinner. Honeymooners can dine by torchlight on a more secluded corner of the beach. The Sand Bar offers a place to unwind over drinks while listening to live music.
The resort has its own quiet stretch of beach where waiters will deliver refreshments or lunch to your lounge chair, and a new infinity pool on the resort property. The Intermezzo Spa has developed a signature menu of treatments including the Coffee Body Scrub, the Fango wrap and the Aromatherapy massage. Nearby Jeep safari tours, bus tours, snorkeling excursions, deep-sea fishing and horseback riding can be arranged by the hotel.
