Aruba’s greenest and most romantic getaway launches package for eco-lovers

EAGLE BEACH , ARUBA – January 27, 2010 – Bucuti Beach Resort, one of the greenest resorts in the Caribbean, invites guests to fall in love with their new eco-friendly Experience Aruba Green Package as they learn more about Aruba ’s environment, culture and history.

The Experience Aruba Green Package includes a guided hike with a native park ranger through Arikok National Park, a preserve of desert resources comprising of 20 percent of the land on Aruba that is home to most of the island’s flora and fauna, including the unique indigenous burrowing owl and Prikichi parrot; a tour of the Aruba Aloe factory to learn how Aruba’s oldest industry has been producing aloe for more than 100 years; an authentic Aruban dinner for two at the resort’s Pirates’ Nest restaurant; and a full American breakfast buffet daily. Guests can also participate in the resort’s monthly beach clean-up, watch sea turtles hatch (seasonally) and enjoy the widest and most pristine stretch of Eagle Beach . Bucuti also hosts seasonally environmental activities, including a bi-annual recycling contest where guests are invited to judge and a special Earth Day celebration. Rates for the five-night package start at $2,179 for a superior room, including all taxes and service charges.

“At Bucuti, we are passionate about preserving the environment so we can share Aruba ’s beauty and culture with guests for years to come,” said Bucuti’s owner Ewald Biemans. “The Experience Aruba Green Package will allow guests to experience some of the island’s spectacular sights, while also learning about our history and ecology. We hope this will help our guests develop a true sense of place.”

A multiple award-winning and owner-managed resort, Bucuti has been officially certified Green Globe 21 since 2000 and ISO 14001 since 2003, making it not only one of the greenest resorts in the Caribbean but one of the first and most progressively committed. To reduce environmental impacts, the resort has implemented many energy and water-saving practices that include the use of solar panels, equipping guest rooms with automatic air conditioner sensors, flowing wastewater from the toilets to the government treatment plant for re-use, using biodegradable containers for beverages and food instead of plastic material, and collecting all water used in showers, sinks and baths in a grey water recycling system. The resort is dedicated to a high level of service and associates are trained on environmental practices along with customer service.
