The Brando, French Polynesia
The mother of all private islands. Named after its former owner, Marlon Brando, this luxury eco-resort can be found on the tiny island of Tetiaroa, which is part of French Polynesia in the Pacific Ocean. Fly to nearby Tahiti, where a private aircraft will bring you to the resort, about 30 miles away. The stunning island is an atoll – a ring-shaped piece of land with a lagoon in its center – and boasts pristine white-sand beaches and calm, turquoise waters. The lagoon is perfect for snorkeling and diving, and there’s an abundance of unique wildlife in the area, including sprawling coral formations and colorful tropical fish. There are only 35 luxury villas at this eco-resort, making it one of the most exclusive holiday destinations on the planet.
