When you arrive, the bellman knows your name and accompanies you to the check-in desk. Check-in was flawless and everyone greeted us with a smile and acknowledgement during our entire stay. Few hotels can provide such an elegant yet friendly environment. Our bungalow was very comfortable and housekeeping was excellent. We made some new friends and loved the relaxing beach...

This is a MUST for your honeymoon or romantic trip - no kids allowed, greeted with champagne, beautiful balcony (Jr. Suite), and beach so private that it is so relaxing, but not too overcrowded. Enough room for all guests to get chairs and umbrellas that were already set up for us. Servers on the beach, great concierge's and wonderful staff!...

My wife & I spent last week totally relaxing and enjoying the Bucuti & Tara Resort. From the champagne check-in to the easy (but sad) check-out, Bucuti met or exceeded all of our expectations.

I treated my husband to five days at the Bucuti and Tara Beach Resort for his birthday and to relax after a horrendous winter in the north east and stressful times at work.

We spent a week at Bucuti in April 2014. While we were initially deterred by the cost, we very quickly realized the experience was well worth the price. The rooms are luxurious and the resort staff has an incredible attention to minor details from champagne while checking in to daily turn down service. The room includes free access to the...
