Other reviews have mentioned that the peacefulness, and quiet nature of this outstanding resort.

The beach is clean, the water is gorgeous and the attention from...

Ny husband, Hans, and I have enjoyed the Bucuti for 11 years. Some of the reasons are the beauty of the property, the respect for nature of the resort that has achieved highest honors worldwide, the expanse of white sand that has room for every guest with some to spare, the fine dining at Elements and the spectacular dining experience...

Just came back from a week at Bucuti & Tara. This is in the low-rise section and beautifully maintained and very well staffed. The beach is perfect, and the lounge chairs and umbrellas are spaced out and easily accessed. No rushing out early morning to get chairs, we had no problems getting well positioned chairs at 10 in the morning....
