Beautiful and Hospitable Bucuti & Tara Resort

long island

This is an ideal resort for couples seeking peace and quiet, a gorgeous beach, fine dining, excellent service, and pampering. We would definitely go back and the hotel has many returning guests who enjoy the low-key atmosphere. The staff at Bucuti and Tara go out of their way to make sure your every wish and desire is met. Our hotel room was large, modern and tastefully decorated with a separate seating area and a terrace overlooking the beach. The bathroom did not have a bathtub or jacuzzi but it did have a TV. Didn't go to the spa facility but had a wonderful Thai massage and an incredible Heaven and Earth massage with Margarita provided right in the little station on the beach. (There's no sauna, steam room or hot tub.) There are a few yoga and pilates classes on an outdoor deck overlooking the ocean and the fitness room is modern and open 24 hours. The breakfast buffet is extensive with many tasty items and includes an omelet station. Martin the Maitre D always greeted us warmly and made sure we had everything we needed at breakfast promptly. The lunch menu had many delicious options as well. Lunch is served either at the restaurant or can be brought to your lounge chair. The beach service was excellent. My favorite drink was called Sand in your Pants.The hotel is also super accommodating to those with dietary needs and allergies. It's also a very "green" hotel and guests are given reusable water bottles to keep and use during your stay. The staff refills them with water and provides buckets of ice at the beach free of charge. There were plenty of comfortable beach chairs and umbrellas and the chairs are spread out so your neighbor is not on top of you. If you must have a "first-row" beach chair, the hotel policy is to leave a towel on your chair after 7 AM to reserve it. If you don't care which row your chair is in, you can always find chairs, so there's really no need to get up early to reserve a chair. We also appreciated the no smoking policy and being able to smell the delicious ocean breeze. Would highly recommend this place for couples.
