Five miles later you will be welcomed at the curb by your Bucuti & Tara Romance Concierge who will escort you to our Champagne reception area where you will receive a cold towel and a chilled flute of Champagne to enjoy while you bypass the check- in area and are briefed about the resort and all the pleasures that await on award winning Eagle Beach at Bucuti & Tara as you are guided to your suite sanctuary.
