As the No. 18 Best Hotel in the World and No. 1 Hotel in the Caribbean per Tripadvisor’s newly released 2023 Travelers’ Choice Best of the Best awards, Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort, Aruba continues its reign atop hotels worldwide listed and rated on the world’s largest travel guidance platform. Furthermore, Bucuti & Tara is the only Caribbean hotel named on the Tripadvisor Travelers’ Choice Best of the Best Top 25 Hotels in the World.
Now in its 21st edition, Bucuti & Tara has been on the coveted, annual Best of the Best list for the past 16 years including the last seven years as the No. 1 Hotel for Romance in the Caribbean, a feat only this resort has ever achieved.
Tripadvisor analyzed 12 months of review data from 2022 from real travelers covering more than 1.5 million hotels, to determine travelers’ highest-rated accommodations of the year for the 2023 Travelers’ Choice® Best of the Best Hotel Awards. Each winner has passed the platform’s rigorous trust and safety standards. Fewer than 1% of Tripadvisor’s 8 million listings are awarded Best of the Best, signifying the highest level of excellence in hospitality.
Tripadvisor shared about the Caribbean’s first certified carbon-neutral hotel, “Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort is eco-friendly and offers a tranquil boutique experience with friendly service. The intimate atmosphere is exclusive and relaxing to couples seeking tranquility and romantic experiences.”
Caribbean’s No. 1 Hotel on Caribbean’s No. 1 Beach
The Tripadvisor Travelers’ Choice Best of the Best awards continue coming. Early this year, Tripadvisor named Bucuti & Tara’s home on Eagle Beach as the No. 1 Beach in the Caribbean and No. 2 Beach in the World. Tripadvisor heralded Eagle Beach for its quiet stretch of sand along calm water, location for intimate weddings, and opportunities for seeing nesting and hatching sea turtles such as those tracked on the Bucuti & Tara Sea Turtle Nesting Calendar 2023.
In addition to being home to the best hotel and best beach, Tripadvisor also shared what travelers are seeking in 2023. Topping the list is wellness. Hotels set in relaxing Caribbean destinations and offering an authentic, highly personalized wellness program like at Bucuti & Tara, ranked high for travelers.
“It’s clear that our community ventured far and wide last year: Our 10 winning subcategories encompass 37 regions around the world and include a wide range of amazing places to stay,” said Sarah Firshein, Head of Editorial at Tripadvisor. “As our savvy reviewers know, hotels can sometimes be the entire reason for the trip—I’m personally very excited to consult this list as I plot out the next year of vacations with my own family.”
