Brando Resort

The 47-villa The Brando resort is now being built in Tetiaroa (Tahiti), an island formerly owned by the late actor Marlon Brando. Tetiaroa is a 13-island chain circled by a coral reef offering a tranquil and pure paradise 35 miles from the island of Tahiti.

It will be the only hotel on the atoll, with private plunge pools for each bungalow villa, a spa, a fitness center with a pool, and other upscale touches.

 Slated to Open in 2011.
