Bucuti & Tara Beach Resorts

Bucuti Winter Newsletter

"We have a number of major changes underway here at Bucuti and lots of good news to share with our valued guests. First and foremost, the time has come for us to replace the iconic galleon-shaped Pirate's Nest restaurant on our beach with a spectacular contemporary facility that will be called Elements. We have recently received the necessary permits to proceed with this upgrade and have finalized an agreement on the timeline with the contractor.

The project will take place between May 13 and August 11, 2013 and will entail three phases described below.

PHASE 1 (May 13 through May 31)
The project will begin with the demolition of the ship and the excavation of the foundation for the new structure. As this phase will involve substantial noise and equipment, we have decided that it is in the best interest of our guests to close out the entire resort during this three week period.

PHASE 2 (June 1 - July 5)
This time period entails the assembly of prefabricated elements of the structure within a fenced enclosure, which will be much less disruptive than Phase 1. We are familiar with this method of construction as it is the same as the one we utilized for the Tara extension and our new Fitness Center in our garden these past couple of months. To minimize any disruption, work will take place between 9:30 am and 6:00 pm. Since our beachfront restaurant will not yet be complete, we will be serving breakfast, lunch and dinner in our Tara Lounge. The renowned Carte Blanche Restaurant with its' Chef's Table concept will also be open and accepting dinner reservations five nights a week.

Bird Watching and Bird Conservation on Aruba

Aruba Bound
ARUBA May 7th, 2013- Soothing, relaxing, connecting with nature…these are some of the attributes many find in the activity of bird watching. It’s a growing hobby worldwide, and here in Aruba with some 236 registered species of birds locals and visitors to our island are captivated with “birding” opportunities. Aruba’s semi-arid climate, diverse flora and fauna, and unique landscapes of beaches, reefs, mangroves, marshes, rolling countryside, and lushly landscaped resorts are havens for species that take up permanent residence, as well as those species just passing through for rest and refueling before journeying on to North or South America.

On Vacation with Medication

An article by Heidi Marchena, pharmacist at Botica di Servicio

ARUBA May 8th, 2013– Planning a vacation usually includes a thorough check of the travel requirements such as flight, lodgings, passport, maybe a needed visa or preventive shots, etc. Something easily overlooked and forgotten is to make preparations for needed prescription medication, with the risk of turning the vacation into a nightmare. Prior to departure a few steps can be taken to eliminate future problems. First, ask your physician to provide a letter describing your specific health condition and related use of medication. In case of emergency this information can be very useful to a physician at destination and, if applicable, this letter can support your claim at customs your need to bring drugs in or out of the country. Secondly, ask your pharmacist to provide a copy of your last filled prescription and a list stating the brand name(s) of the drug(s), along with the generic description.
