On the private island of Tetiaroa, once owned by Marlon Brando, this exceptionally glamorous resort is a 20-minute flight from Papeete, the capital of Tahiti, by private aircraft. The 35 plush one-, two- and three-bedroom thatched beachfront villas have decks with plunge pools, separate sitting rooms, media centers and outdoor tubs. The full-service spa and wellness center comprises a meditation area, a waterfall and a tea lounge. Les Mutinés serves fine French fare in a formal dining room. Other restaurant options include the Beachcomber Café for local specialties alongside classic French cuisine, and a new teppanyaki restaurant overseen by chef Kaito Nakamura. Activities include biking, snorkeling, kayaking, boating and bird-watching excursions, tennis, scuba diving and guided tours at environmental research stations on neighboring islands. Traditional Polynesian dance lessons, music classes, weaving instruction and cooking courses can also be booked.
