Windstar Cruises has announced a new collaboration with Pacific Beachcomber, a luxury operator of seven hotels in French Polynesia, including InterContinental Hotel Group (IHG), Maitai Hotels and The Brando.

As a result of the partnership, guests can now opt for two-night stay packages at The Brando, Pacific Beachcomber’s exclusive private island eco-resort.

The Brando has just 35 private villas on white-sand beaches overlooking a five-mile-wide lagoon.

The resort is frequented by celebrities and was named after the late Marlon Brando, who purchased the atoll in the 1960s.

Guests of The Brando engage in snorkelling, bird watching, cultural and archaeological expeditions and resort amenities such as the much-lauded Varua Te Ora Polynesian Spa.

Christopher Prelog, President of Windstar Cruises, said:

“This collaboration not only further enhances our commitment to providing unparalleled luxury and the most romantic experiences for our guests in French Polynesia, but also allows us to extend the Windstar experience seamlessly from sea to land, providing our guests with exceptional hospitality throughout their journey.”

Available from 1st May 2024 as a post-cruise add-on, this package is reserved exclusively for guests in Star Breeze’s top suites: the award-winning Broadmoor and Sea Island Suites, and Owner’s Suites.

The experience includes daily excursions and spa treatments, beach equipment and more.

Transfers on a plane to and from The Brando (a 20-minute flight from Papeete, where guests disembark from the cruise), are also included.

Rates for the package are from $6,900 pp (based on double occupancy).

Windstar has exclusively partnered with Pacific Beachcomber’s InterContinental Tahiti Resort & Spa in Papeete since February for convenient pre-and post-cruise stays on the island of Tahiti.

The resort has also been incorporated into Windstar’s popular Air + Hotel packages from both Los Angeles and Seattle.

Richard Bailey, Chairman of Pacific Beachcomber said:

“We are delighted to extend a warm invitation to Windstar Cruises’ guests to discover our secluded island havens, including The Brando, an eco-resort unlike any other nestled in the heart of French Polynesia.

“Together, we aim to deeply immerse our guests in the vibrant Polynesian culture and the untouched splendour of our natural surroundings.”

In Bora Bora at Pacific Beachcomber’s Intercontinental Bora Bora Le Moana, Windstar currently offers one-night overwater bungalow stays as an additional excursion for guests to book mid-cruise when overnighting on the island.

Guests disembark from the ship and are whisked away to a romantic, overwater bungalow for the night – a bucket list wish for most visiting Tahiti.
