We just got back last night from a fantastic week at the Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort, and we are already looking to book this resort again for next year!

5 star resort with incredible food, service, views and overall atmosphere. The resort alone is truly special but the staff and service make it that much better. It's located on eagle beach away from the high rise hotels but still a short cab ride from everything (the island is less than 20 miles long) and walking distance to some great... More

It had been a few years since our last vacation at Bucuti. Some new faces and many of the veterans - all still equally as welcoming and enjoyable.

This place was amazing. In terms of the location it is on a quiet more remote area than most of the other hotels on the Island.
