Travels in Aruba – part nine

I’ve been sharing our exploration of the island of Aruba in the last few posts of this series and there’s more to come. The best part of the trip, by far, was staying at Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort.  During the majority of days, we came down late for our amazing complimentary breakfast (served till 11) and then after picking up our towels and covers for our shaded sunbeds, it was beach time.  The white sugar sand is kept immaculate by the resort, there are more than enough sunbeds for every guest.  With an adults only resort, these were set up in twos – perfect as this is a romantic destination for couples.  Many were honeymooners, celebrating anniversaries, birthdays or just spending quality time, relaxing at a place designed for just that purpose.  Everyone we met spoke as we did – in awe of this magical place, the attention to special details in the rooms, restaurants and the property – all designed for a superior stay.

This is how easy is was to get beach beverage service:

Just raise your flag!

Robert and Orville were our servers, whenever we raised our flags, they would appear and in short order bring back iced buckets of Aruba’s Balashi Beer for Spence and banana daquiris or pina coladas for me.  And on top of that, at the most perfect time – they would bring trays of cold, damp rolled towels to refresh with and at other times, bringing cups of chilled melon as a lovely treat. Perfect!

I can’t wait to return to Aruba!
