Discover the Art of Sunday Brunch: Tara Lounge at Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort Unveils a New Culinary Experience Crafted by Elements’ Executive Chef Alexander Powell

Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort, acclaimed as the #18 Best Hotel in the World and #1 in the Caribbean on TripAdvisor, is excited to announce a new Sunday Brunch experience served exclusively at the resort’s Tara Lounge every Sunday from 11:15 AM to 3 PM. The brunch, personally curated by Executive Chef Alexander Powell, will offer a unique combination of exquisite flavors and a mesmerizing ambiance, right in the heart of the award-winning resort.

The Tara Lounge offers an inviting indoor setting fully air-conditioned, as well as an outdoor deck, both providing the perfect ambiance for an intimate dining experience. For $110 per couple (only $55 per person) diners can savor an array of tantalizing offerings, including fine artisanal cuts, delectable crêpes, shrimp cocktail, broiled salmon filet, fine Argentinian beef tenderloin, New York-style cheesecake, and much more. The meal is beautifully complemented by a full bottle of our signature celebratory Champagne, Veuve Ambal Crémant de Bourgogne, adding a bubbly touch to this gastronomic journey. Reservations are required due to limited seating, and the experience is exclusive to adults (18+).
