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.

Ok folks, here's the deal. We have zero interest in "The Bachelorette" Ali Fedotowsky and her quest to find the man of her dreams. Call us jaded or whatever but we think "The Bachelor/Bachelorette" track record for "true love" speaks for itself.
However, we do get our kicks from the sexy destinations where the final rose ceremony goes down. Last season's "The Bachelor", found Jake and his girls in St. Lucia at two different romantic resorts and this season, Ali takes her beefcakes to Tahiti Hotels.
Everyone shacked up at the Hilton Bora Bora Nui (formerly a Starwood Hotel) but a few date activities were also planned at the nearby Le Taha'a Island Resort & Spa.
The scenes were shot in early May and according to the rags, Ali has indeed picked a
poor unfortunate soul to torture fiancee!
Resorts in Tahiti regularly make our Killer View lists, but Le Méridien is not content to rest on its pretty-as-hell laurels and has just launched another round of renovations to keep its Tahitian properties in tip-top shape.
Le Méridien Tahiti is sprucing up all of its public spaces and rooms with new decor, and plans to unveil the results in November.
Le Méridien Bora Bora (pictured above) has already been through phase one of its renovations, and the second round—including new interiors for the beach and overwater bungalows and all public spaces—begins on October 1st.
It's sad, but it's true: if you're in the midst of a dream vacation week on Tahiti, there is a point at which you will get antsy to do something other than slather yourself in tanning oil and kick back with John Grisham. This is exactly what the Le Méridien Tahiti discovered last year after it launched L’Atelier du Chef, a series of intimate cooking classes with hands-on instruction from Executive Chef Sebastien Philizot. The program ended up being so popular as an addition to the all-inclusive escape that Le Méridien is back in 2009 with an entire series of "culture offerings" at L'Atelier, the resort's artist space.
You might want to brush up on your knowledge of French Polynesia.
In celebration of its 10th anniversary, Air Tahiti Nui has launched a quiz contest centered on trivia of the collection of isles. Correctly answer the questions, and be entered to win a free trip to Tahiti on the airline, departing from New York or Los Angeles, as well as one night at the Le Méridien Tahiti (pictured), which sits on the white sandy beaches of the Punaauia region. (Sounds good, oui?)
Two winners will be announced each week through November 30, and with 10 trips up for grabs, your chance of winning ain’t too shabby.
It’s just cultivating that little bit of French Polynesian smarts you have to worry about, because really, what else do you know about it except that you want to go there. Now. For free.
If you're in for exotic Tahitian luxury, the stakes may just have been raised a bar higher. The Sofitel Moorea Beach Resort (formerly known as the Sofitel I Ora Moorea, obviously much harder to pronounce) has just reopened after some $40 million worth of renovation and expansion.
Nineteen brand new overwater bungalows have been added, and the old ones "completely upgraded", they say. Another drawcard is the restaurant rebranding, and now the simply titled "K" restaurant is the "intimate dining option" for guests who want to:
enjoy the freshest local produce in elegant and refined settings that allows guests a unique opportunity to feel the sand of the beach beneath their feet while enjoying the ambiance of chandeliers overhead
We don't have the budget yet to test it for ourselves, but the location map rather makes it sounds like it'll be the airplanes as well as the chandeliers right overhead: the Sofitel Moorea is definitely one of the closer resorts to the (admittedly very small) airport, although their website claims it's five minutes away by car. Check in with us if you get any first hand experience of the new Moorea (or send us your donations so we can get their ourselves).
You can't really go wrong if you honeymoon in Tahiti. Ridiculously gorgeous beaches, French food, and island cocktails what more you want? The choice to make is to stay in pure luxury or to rough it a bit, in the old school bungalow style.
The Wedding Channel recommends Hotel Kia Oral for both choices: luxury or bungalow exotique:
The Hotel Kia Ora is nestled here on a white sand beach shaded by swaying palms, within earshot of the atoll's crashing ocean waves. The hotel's 63 air-conditioned bungalows are scattered in the garden, along the beach, and over the water. The overwater bungalows feature a glass coffee table where the lagoon becomes your private aquarium. A 1hr cruise from the Hotel Kia Ora, takes you to the Kia Ora Sauvage - an unspoiled paradise. With only 5 traditional bungalows and no electric power or telephones, this remote Polynesian hideaway is ideal for couples seeking the Robinson Crusoe experience.
The powerless bungalow is perfect for honeymooners who are okay going without WiFi or satellite TV (we obviously aren't.)
The only question now is, how close are each of the bungalows to each other?
