A romantic island escape
On the edge of 14 acres of one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, Bucuti is a perfect destination for gay couples seeking a romantic escape.

TAG Approved and a member of the International Gay & Lesbian Travel Association, Bucuti welcomes it LGBT guests with open arms -- and a complimentary of glass of the bubbly.

The hotel is small, just over 100 rooms, but offers many of the amenities of a larger property. There is restaurant, bar, spa, pool and fitness center as well as free parking and Wi-Fi. Daily breakfast is included as part of your stay.

My partner and I stayed in a garden side room that was nicely decorated, clean and comfortable. And, we saw many other same-sex couples on property.

When not exploring the amazing island of Aruba (I highly recommend a Jeep tour of Arikok National Park), we enjoyed lounging under one of the many palapa thatch umbrellas.

A nice bonus was Bucuti's push to be eco-friendly such as recycling bins in the rooms and around the property and a special lighting system in the room (make sure one of the staff explains how it all works).

Bucuti is just 20 mins from the airport and 10 mins from downtown Oranjestad (Aruba's capital city).

Rates are reasonable and some upcoming remodeling will likely make the property even a better value.
