The Brando The Godfather in Tahiti

[21/05/14] 

For many of us, Marlon Brando embodied what it was to be a real man. Like the many iconic characters he portrayed on film, Brando was a powerful yet mysterious personality.

As Don Corleone, we admired his unfailing adherence to a strict moral code of loyalty to friends and family, the ultimate problem solver meting out justice to those who pledge allegiance, even on the day his daughter is to be married.  In A Streetcar Named Desire, his Stanley was an unabashed display of masculinity: strong, solid, passionate, and instinctive. And who could forget his tour de force performance in Apocalypse Now as the brooding, isolated Colonel Kurtz, a highly decorated Green Beret feared by the US military, the North Vietnamese, and the Vietcong.

While filming Mutiny on the Bounty, Brando discovered Tetiaroa Island, 30 miles off the coast of Tahiti, and loved it so much that he bought it. From July 1, you’ll be able to visit the Don’s private island hideaway with the opening of The Brando, a luxurious new resort. Here, you’ll stay in a spacious, opulent one, two or three-bedroom villa kitted out with a private pool, king-sized bed, a media room, and a private beach and sundeck. During the day, you’ll scour the crystal clear waters for sea turtles, manta rays, and reef sharks; explore the lagoon on outriggers, kayaks, and paddleboards; be pampered at the Varuna Polynesian Spa; and feast on Polynesian-inspired dishes and French cuisine by Michelin-starred chef Guy Martin. Best of all, you’ll do this knowing that The Brando continues the actor’s conservation efforts with a range of ecologically-friendly programs.

Now this is an offer you can’t refuse.
