I recently went to see what the new and improved Tara Wing Suites looks like. Adjacent to the Bucuti it just underwent a $5 million investment which included all 44 suites, penthouses and bungalows as well as the lobby and the lobby lounge.
Not surprisingly, it all looks luxurious, laid back, and very inviting, with original artwork by local artist Elisa Lejuez, displayed throughout the property.
As you all know the Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort is the most decorated resorts on the island with endless environmental recognitions besides too-numerous-to-mention awards of excellence, and off-the-chart guest satisfaction scores.
Living up to its reputation, the newly renovated suites are a symphony of white, cream, and beige with orange accents. The beds are amazingly comfortable and best of all, no need o crawl under the desk to find the outlet for your phone or tablet, multiple electric docks are visible above the desk. The bedroom portion of the space has many cool features, a sleek, paper-thin TV, an air purifier removing all allergens and a de-humidifier, getting rid of excessive odor-causing moisture. Separated by a sliding glass partition, the living area and kitchenette offer comfortable, relaxing spaces for in-room dining and unwinding.
While all rooms are graced with spectacular views from their ocean front terraces, the penthouses also boast full kitchens! Guest bathrooms were completely remodeled with walk in showers, giant shower heads, double vanities, and a TV screen embedded in the mirror, so you don’t miss a thing!.
Downstairs, in the lobby, the elegant lounge serves breakfast every day, included in the room rate; it also provides a great hide away from the sun during the day.
Gorgeous pool, world-famous beach, glass enclosed restaurant, an open air deck setting for Elements Restaurant, a stylish beach bar, thatch beach palapas, it’s all picture-perfect.
Thank you Ewald and Tisa for the tour, and good salad for lunch, you make it seem effortless.
