The brando resort price: A decade after Marlon Brando’s death, the private Teti’aroa atoll of late actor opens for visitors in French Polynesia. This is courtesy of The Brando, the resort that the Oscar winner envisioned in 1999 before asking Richard Bailey, CEO of Pacific Beachcomber and a Tahitian resident, to assist him in making it a reality. The resort, which can only be reached by private plane, has 35 villas on white-sand beaches frequented by sea turtles, manta rays, and exotic birds. The resort was designed to reflect Polynesian culture and lifestyles.
The Brando’s official website describes it as “the world’s first and foremost post-carbon resort,” and you can finally visit starting July 1. There is, of course, a catch to booking a trip to the 35-villa property. Specifically, only private planes fly to the resort, which has its own air strip.
But if you can figure out how to get there (a resort concierge can help!) and swing the rates for one-, two-, and three-bedroom villas (which range from about $2,400 to $7,400 per night), you’re golden. Aside from what appear to be beautifully appointed villas and a picturesque.
Pacific ocean setting, the resort also includes a spa, a variety of activities (including snorkeling and bird watching), a world-class wine cellar, a luxury pearl shop, multiple restaurants, 24-hour room service, and “Bob’s Bar,” named after Brando’s.
