The "Godfather" may be gone, but he's left fans a piece of paradise they can escape to. Called The Brando, this 35-villa haven, which has been talked about since 2005 is finally coming to fruition. It's the result of Marlon Brando's long-time vision to create a post-carbon resort.
The hotel is located in remote Tetiaroa, a 12-islet atoll 30 miles northeast of Tahiti. From what we can see, this private island, the former playground of Tahitian Kings and Brando's family himself, is quite fitting for a resort coming from a man who once said "Privacy is not something that I'm merely entitled to, it's an absolute prerequisite."
When the resort opens July 1, 2014, guests (who arrive via the resort's own airfield) will get seclusion in spades thanks to several luxury villas placed on a private stretch of beach. Each will have their own plunge pools as well. There will be some opportunity to mingle with others at the two restaurants, lounge, beach bar or while participating in water sport activities in the lagoon. And if you've had enough socializing, escape to the sanctuary of the Spa Arii Vahine, which is surrounded by 21,530 square feet of forest, plants and a pond.

Imagine...all of this...for you.
This might be the first posthumous celebrity hotel we've heard about--Marlon Brando's vision for a Tahitian resort on the islands of Tetiaroa will come true nearly eight years after the legendary actor's death. The Brando is now expected open in late 2012.
Purchased by Marlon Brando in 1965, Tetiaroa is a 13-island chain circled by a coral reef offering a tranquil and pure paradise 35 miles from the island of Tahiti. The Brando is a product of Brando’s vision to create a project which will resonate with visitors and also foster opportunities for guests to get to know both the place and the people of French Polynesia.
On-site The Brando will have 47 deluxe bungalow villas (each with private plunge pools) along with your typical resort amenities like a spa, fitness center, community pool, two restaurants and access to island activities like scuba diving and local tours.
But, in accordance with Brando's wishes, the resort will also give guest the opportunity to explore not only the island but French Polynesia's culture and history with activities such as guided archaeological tours of Tahitian sites.
