A decade after his death, "Godfather" star Marlon Brando's dream of building a luxurious, eco-friendly haven in French Polynesia has come true, with the doors to The Brando opening this week.
Set on the private atoll of Tetiaroa, 30 miles north of Tahiti, the eco-friendly resort offers guilt-free luxury accommodations, with beauty great enough to rival that of even the most spectacular Brazilian beaches.
The resort is comprised of deluxe villas designed to reflect the Polynesian lifestyle with modern conveniences. All 35 deluxe villas comes with its own private beach and plunge pool, and is designed to reflect Polynesian culture with added modern conveniences like wifi, flat screen TVs, and king-size beds. Activities on the island paradise include snorkeling, paddle boarding, kayaking, Polynesian canoeing, scuba diving, tennis, biking, and guided tours by naturalists.
Access to The Brando is a 20-minute flight from Tahiti by Air Tetiaroa to Tetiaroa's airfield.
