Elements Restaurant Aruba Reveals Dining Renovations, New offerings for Thriving Vegan Scene
Source:  Aruba News by Visitaruba
donderdag 13 augustus 2020 12:47

The rare downtime this spring allowed Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort to invest in renovations and refresh its acclaimed Elements restaurant and to create innovative new items on its popular vegan menu. The Caribbean’s healthiest and safest vacation can be enjoyed with a View to Dine For at the award-winning dining destination.

Michelin-trained Chef Marc Giesbergs, director of food & beverage at Bucuti & Tara, and his team quickly seized the unexpected quiet time to reimagining the Eagle Beach dining experience. They put on their design hats in the front-of-the-house and turned the back-of-the-house into a test kitchen.

Refreshed and stylishly social distanced Elements restaurant has long featured mostly seating for two, so safe, physical distancing was already the norm at the romantic, adults-only enclave. Couples can also enjoy a special 6-course meal for 2 with a bottle of Champagne or wine included, in a private beach palapa where they will experience an array of flavors accompanied by pastel skies transitioning to bright moonlit stars.

The most notable investment is the all-new dining deck along Eagle Beach, aptly named one of the “Dream Beaches of the World.� The Caribbean’s most eco-certified resort to include being its only carbon-neutral hotel, carefully selected an innovative blend of 95% recycled materials. The earth-friendly manufacturing process recoups factory waste and eliminates the use of harmful chemicals.

Luxury resort designer Dada Designs of Miami led the aesthetic component of the renovations. The same team masterminded the concepts resulting in laidback luxury of the Tara Wing revisions in 2017 and the Bucuti Wing refresh in 2020.

Vegan menu expands by demand

Elements restaurant goes beyond one full menu and offers complete menus for vegan/vegetarian, gluten-free and world cuisine offering prized steaks and sustainable seafood. Aruba’s blossoming vegan and vegetarian scene has become a Caribbean food destination anchored in large part to Elements restaurant for its innovation and equal consideration for those seeking a fulfilling plant-based nourishment. While Chef Marc’s high-end steak and seafood dishes continuously earn high praise, admiration along with increased requests for his innovative and satiating healthy selections prompted the expansion the restaurant’s existing standalone vegan menu.

From dedicated vegans to guests who occasionally seek a healthy, flavorful alternative, the extensive vegan menu weaves in flavors of the world. From the likes of classic comfort foods given a modern twist to a zesty nod to Latin favorites and Far East staples, the team relishes relationships with local farmers and procures as much on island such as its microgreens. A sampling of the full menu includes:

· Layered Roots of the Andes: Towering layers of truffle potato, sweet potato mash, basil-marinated red beets along with chunky seasoned avocado served with carrot chips accompanied with roasted red pepper pulp.

· Gado-Gado Entreé Salad: Elements adaptation of this classic Indonesian dish composed of Tempeh, beansprouts, green beans, carrot, bell pepper, cilantro, pickled cabbage, complemented with a divine peanut sauce atop a bed of rice noodles.

· Range-free Steak: A nod to the West, this ground lentil patty is served with roasted vegetable gravy and partnered with a mosaic of squash, glazed carrots and classic fondant potatoes.

· Agave and Cardamom-infused Pineapple Quinoa Margarita : Latin America inspired, this agave nectar-infused quinoa is crowned with a slow simmered lime and pineapple chutney laced with cardamom and clove, finished with a touch of strawberry sauce.

A fine dining restaurant veteran, Chef Marc recently received on Elements’ behalf the coveted Wine Spectator 2020 Award of Excellence for his diverse, sustainable wine list that exceeds the expectations of the resort’s global clientele.

“After months of research and testing, my talented culinary team and I improved the flavor and healthfulness of both traditional and modern fare, and are very proud of our new vegan menu at Elements restaurant,� shares Chef Marc Giesbers,director of food & beverage at Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort.

Elements restaurant is adults-only and available to both resort guests and offsite guests, alike. Reservations are highly recommended. The SandBar is reserved exclusively for resort guests.

Bucuti & Tara: The Caribbean’s Healthiest and Safest Vacation Experience

As the region’s most-eco certified hotel, Bucuti has long had a heightened awareness for the health and safety of both guests and the planet. Its new COVID-19 safety protocols were developed within Center for Disease Control guidelines, World Health Organization recommendations and in-person evaluations by practicing ICU (intensive care unit) doctors and nurses who were hosted onsite this spring at Bucuti & Tara.

With its new touch-free experience combined with the new hospital-grade, high-tech health safety protocols and Aruba’s Health & Happiness Code seal, guests can confidently relax into vacation mode.

Tripadvisor Declares Love Wins at Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort

donderdag 30 juli 2020 11:36

Love, one of the most powerful emotions throughout the world, can best be enjoyed in the Caribbean at Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort according to Tripadvisor®. The world’s largest and most influential travel site just announced its 2020 Travelers’ Choice. For the fifth straight year and among growing competition, Bucuti & Tara is named the No. 1 Hotel for Romance in the Caribbean and No. 8 Hotel for Romance in the World.

Completing these honors, it is also the No. 1 Hotel in the Caribbean and its Bucuti associates ranked No. 3 for Service in the Caribbean. Bucuti & Tara’s home on Eagle Beach also took top honors as No. 4 Beach in the Caribbean and No. 7 Beach in the World.

In a world filled with media, Tripadvisor reviews and accolades are the pinnacle in travel. In a new 2020 YouGov Brand Index, according to participants, when asked which brands make a positive impression, Tripadvisor was the most favorable at 85.4% compared to other global powerhouses such as at 76%, Amazon at 74% and even Google at 71%.

Winners are calculated based on the quality and quantity of the millions of reviews, opinions and ratings collected on Tripadvisor in 2019, prior to the pandemic. With over 8.7 million businesses listed on Tripadvisor, these awards are a testament to the service and quality that winners consistently provide to their guests.

“This has been a tough year for our industry, but the global desire to go and explore, whether the destination is an hour away or across the world, remains strong. We’re passionate about guiding travelers to the good out there, especially the good found within these recognized hotels, restaurants and airlines that rise to the occasion in offering the best of the best,� said Lindsay Nelson, chief experience and brand officer at Tripadvisor. “The Travelers’ Choice program is one way that travelers and diners can benefit from the real-life experiences of other people, so they can plan their perfect trip that meets their needs, budget and style.�

“It continues to be a tremendous honor to be Tripadvisor’s No. 1 Hotel in the Caribbean, No. 1 Hotel for Romance in the Caribbean and more� shares Ewald Biemans, owner/CEO of Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort. “We read and respond to in writing and in actions to every single guest review and these achievements are a testament to our loyal guests and hard-working Bucuti associates who are true hospitality professionals.�

Perfecting the Caribbean’s most romantic vacation

In cosmopolitan Aruba, Bucuti & Tara is uniquely sequestered on the widest swath of powdery white sand along Eagle Beach. An ambiance of romance and tranquility fills the air and laidback luxury envelopes couples. The resort’s natural surroundings – white sand spilling into turquoise waters, swaying palms and abundant sunshine – lure dushis (native Papiamento for “sweethearts�) from an average of 25 countries a day.

The careful build to become the Caribbean’s No. 1 Hotel for Romance results from intense dedication and consistency from being owned and managed by passionate, award-winning hotelier Ewald Biemans. Biemans decided years ago that Bucuti & Tara would not be everything to everyone, rather, it would be committed to romance, at the exclusion of most everything else such as family travel and groups. At Bucuti & Tara, sustainability and wellness are extensions of its commitment to romance. The Caribbean’s first and only carbon-neutral hotel is as caring for its guests as it is the planet.

From the moment couples make reservations, their personal concierge begins helping the couple prepare for their ultimate romantic vacation. The concierge begins with a pre-arrival survey, securing preferences and eventually curating options accordingly. The detail-oriented concierge team develops refined, elegant and exclusive options for couples to savor from sunset sailing aboard a private yacht, a modern twist on the timeless picnic, movies under the stars and moonlight dinners in private cabanas with personal wait staff. Romance concierges can make every aspect of a couples stay exclusive such as VIP airport arrival and departure, wellness experiences whether it’s beach bootcamp together or private yoga with the island’s top yogi or snuggling up together with beach butler service.

The popular adults-only enclave offers each guest spacious surroundings both indoors and out. The original home to social distancing, couples don’t even have to check-in at a traditional front desk. Their personal concierge greets them at the entrance and whisks them to their accommodations for an iPad check-in. Couples relax into sophisticated surroundings and can venture out to Bucuti’s uncrowded beach. Guaranteed luxury sun loungers are paired and surrounded by 24 ft. (8m) of sand for privacy so there’s never a mad dash to chairs, just plenty of time to focus on one another.

Tripadvisor senior researchers share new traveler insights

Along with the reveal of the 2020 Travelers’ Choice winners, Tripadvisor senior researchers held a special webinar to share its site users’ research patterns. Demand for secluded, romantic travel indexes high at 123 (100 being the average) and the desire for more outdoor experiences and/or space has also scored higher with interest at 117 for beach seekers and 151 for hikers. As the world endures the effects of COVID-19, Tripadvisor revealed that dreamers are beginning to book travel experiences once again.

Exactly five years ago, the Hilton logo lit up the Aruba tower of Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort & Casino, on Palm Beach, joyfully announcing the rebranding of an Aruban favorite hotel, The Grande Dame, helping navigate her into a glorious future.

The new owners of the real estate, the Aruba Growth Fund, kept their promise to purchase the resort and protect all employees and their workplace.

The resort proudly retained all of its Team Members and reopened on July 9th, 2020, with more guests than expected and the future occupancy numbers look encouraging, according to General Manager Vasco Baselli.

Baselli was there all along during the shutdown, tending to all maintenance, security and upgraded hygiene and sanitation issues, and was pleased to see Team Members returning to work.

What better way to show appreciation, than a sumptuous BBQ lunch? Baselli, has made it a tradition to cook for Team Members on special occasions, and the 5th year anniversary under the Hilton flag, was one, with BBQ steak and ribs on the menu, accompanied by all the fixings, including a special baked bean recipe, which Baselli credits his mother for.

Team Members enjoyed their lunch at the Morris Lapidus Grand Ballroom, social distancing rules applied and expressed a great sense of satisfaction over the reopening, having adjusted to new service standards and protocols, making great efforts to reward guests for their loyalty to Aruba, applying themselves to 120% guest satisfaction and top-notch service.

Wine Spectator Recognizes Elements Excellence

dinsdag 07 juli 2020 18:53

Elements Restaurant is proud to announce the most prestigious honor of the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence, which reflects a steadfast dedication and unwavering passion for building and growing an outstanding wine program.

Of millions of restaurants worldwide, only 2,289 restaurants earned the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence, which recognizes thoughtfully chosen wine lists that offer quality and diversity, as well as compatibility with the restaurant’s style and menu. These lists can range in size from just under 100 to several hundred selections.

The Award of Excellence “is a great reward for the work that’s gone into the wine list,� said Marc Giesbers, Food and Beverage Director for the Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort and also a Michelin Star trained Chef and fine wine connoisseur.

We asked Chef Marc to comment on how he was able to create an award-winning wine list and what it consists of:

“Setting up the wine list is a professional job, next to that the rules and regulations set by Wines Spectator makes the ‘job’ challenging. We keep in mind the international group of guests we welcome here at Bucuti and Tara Beach Resort, meaning we list winesfrom all over the world, from light styled, easy-going to fuller-bodied, more powerful wines.“

“Our wines originate from different regions�, Marc continues, “… for example, an interesting region is the New York Finger lake district, a more white wines focused region; listed are the wines of Dr. Konstantin Frank, a pioneer back in time, he was the first to grow the vitis vinifera, the common grape vine, the one giving grapes for wine production. I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Fred “Konstatin� Frank last March as a guest of Elements. Many other wine regions are appealing, and we are happy to help guests choose the best for the time of the day, or the chosen cuisine. I recommend guests to try out the Viognier from the Yalumba winery, an award-winning wine from Australia, it is a lovely surprise. Viognier being the famous grape from the Rhone region in France, making promising wines around the world.�

“I’ve chosen wines specifically to pair well with the menu I’ve created.� Chef Marc explains “…most wines are food wines, of course you have stand-alone as well, like a glass of Bollinger Champagne. Nothing beats a powerful Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from Silverado Vineyards paired with one of our top-quality sirloin steaks…a match in heaven! 

�Elements Restaurant is completing its renovation and will reopen July 15th. Watch for the countdown on our Elements Facebook page!

Make your reservations here (reservations will be accepted starting on July 15th and on).

Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort continues to be at the forefront of COVID 19 health and safety protocols which extend throughout the restaurant operation. Returning resort and restaurant visitors will have the comfort of knowing they are in a safe environment from viruses and germs.
