THE BRANDO, FRENCH POLYNESIA
The private island of Tetiaroa is worth every minute of the long-haul flight to get there. Marlon Brando fell in love with the atoll the moment he rolled up his trousers and stepped ashore to film Mutiny On he Bounty, and ended up buying it, and it’s still owned by his estate. Surrounded by a lagoon lined with sand so fine you’ll want to take some home in a jar, each of its 35 villas comes with a billion-dollar view. But it’s not just natural beauty where he Brando scores highly. he resort is committed to keeping things green, from the coral-safe products in the spa to the on-site marine lab, where scientists from around the world conduct ecological field research. his hotel really is a model for low-impact living in the South Pacific. Bravo for he Brando.
