After the arduous task of organising the wedding with military precision the couple truly deserved the most romantic getaway there possibly could be. The newlyweds were spotted on Monday at Los Angeles International Airport en route to their luxurious honeymoon in the Pacific Islands.

 The couple is rumoured to be honeymooning at The Brando Resort – the only luxury resort located on Tertiaroa island once owned by legendary screen star Marlon Brando. With its white sand beaches, lush plam trees, pristine clear waters and absolute privacy, Tertiaroa is truly a hidden gem of the Polynesian islands and the couple couldn’t have picked a better location!

This tiny atoll is located off the coast of Tahiti and access to The Brando is only possible via a 20-minute spectacular plane ride from Faa’a International Airport in Papeete, Tahiti.

 The Brando Resort where the likes of celebrities like the Obamas, Jay-Z and Beyonce are known to have vacationed, features 35 private villas with pools along with two gourmet restaurants, two hotel bars, a luxurious overwater spa, an organic fruit orchard and vegetable garden.

The resort is a one-of-a-kind luxury abode that combines elegance and environmental sustainability to create one of the finest eco-friendly retreats. This award-winning resort has sea-water air conditioning and is  supported with energy produced from solar power and coconut oil.
