Bucuti & Tara and Aruba Win Travel + Leisure 2021 World’s Best Awards As Top In the Caribbean and World

Travel is back and readers of the prestigious media outlet Travel + Leisure has declared Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort as one of the finest vacation experiences. Announced September 8, Bucuti & Tara is featured on the coveted list of Travel + Leisure’s 2021 Top 25 Resort Hotels in the Caribbean, Bermuda, and the Bahamas.

Bucuti & Tara is the only Aruba hotel to receive this honor. Joining in the awards, Aruba itself was ranked No. 3 on The Top 25 Islands in the Caribbean, Bermuda, and the Bahamas and No. 18 on The Top 25 Islands in the World.

The annual World’s Best Awards celebrate the greatest islands, hotels, airlines and more, all voted on by the readers. Participants could cast their votes earlier in the year and could vote on places they traveled to over the past three years both pre-pandemic and during it. 

Travel + Leisure acknowledged the toll COVID-19 took on the travel industry, thanking readers for traveling again and encouraging others to return to the world of exploring. The outlet shared, “an excellent hotel can still put a smile on your face, especially when the world feels tumultuous.” 

Caribbean hotel winners were heralded by voters for prioritizing privacy and favoring hotels that were either small, spacious, or secluded. Bucuti & Tara has long provided plenty of space, privacy and tranquility for guests at the adults-only resort. The pandemic created the opportunity for the resort to raise social distancing to an art form providing plenty of space amongst the romantic setting for vacationing couples. For added peace of mind, the resort’s doctor-developed, high-tech, hospital-grade COVID-19 safety and wellness protocols have been heralded for allowing guests to focus on what they want most, a memorable vacation.

“We are once again honored by and grateful for Travel + Leisure magazine and all of the voters who selected Bucuti & Tara to be a 2021 World’s Best Award winner,” shares Ewald Biemans, Owner/CEO of Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort. “The Caribbean’s healthiest, safest vacation is found right here at Bucuti & Tara shared with our island home and Travel + Leisure winner, Aruba!”

Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best Awards is in the October issue, on newsstands now.
