Today is a day to dream in grand style and fill the week with inspirations in shades of blue. We will fly straight to French Polynesia, more exactly to the exclusive island of Tetiaroa, where the super The Brando hotel is located. Lets go?
Just by hearing the name “Tahiti” we already begins to sigh, right? Then imagine flying a private airplane of the hotel itself to the most luxurious French Polynesia destination and spend a few days in a little piece of paradise, one of those places that are difficult to describe such beauty, because it is! A coral atoll surrounded by a barrier reef and formed by several islets of white sand. As if that were not enough, there are coconut trees, a crystalline turquoise blue ocean, colorful fish, very quiet and the finest hotel in French Polynesia, The Brando.
Do you know where the name of the hotel comes from? I will tell you. For more than 30 years, the powerful Marlon Brando used the island as his personal refuge. He fell in love not only for the island but also for the actress Tahitian Tarita Teriipaia (when she filmed “Mutiny on the Bounty“) with whom he married and had two children. He bought the island in 1966, and since that time, he built a house with care not to harm the environment. A few years later, unfortunately, a hurricane swept over the island and destroyed everything. At that time, he went through financial problems and had to get back in the movie industry. It was then that the project of an eco-luxury resort on the island was conceived. He did not see the dream come true but, in 2014, ten years after his departure, the luxurious The Brando opened its doors.
The hotel is incredible!!! There are only 35 jaw-dropping bungalows. Super stylish, huge, with beautiful rooms, rustic décor, enclosed private swimming pool facing the sea and etc. Everything is perfectly integrated to the context and with an impeccable service. Flowers and champagne to welcome you. A fresh fruit basket every day, chocolate before bed and homemade cake freshly made to sweeten the evening -gifts that everyone loves. Such an amazing vibe, where you feel as if you are home. For circling around the island, there are bikes. Each guest has their own. My bike already knew the path to the spa, haha! It took me there at the end of each day to relax.
This is one of those perfect places to celebrate special moments in life. A place that has everything that you want at the same time: natural beauty, respect for the environment, exclusivity, luxury and even starred restaurant. The Brando is a “destination hotel”, one of those hotels that you just pack and leave. Perfect in every way.
Jot down these tips if you are ever looking for that perfect getaway! I hope your week is filled with positive energy.
XoXo and see you next Tuesday!
