Marlon Brando - Marlon Brando's Eco-hotel Dream To Open In 2013

Fans of late movie great Marlon Brando can enjoy the comfort of the eco-resort he dreamed of creating on a private island in Tahiti from the end of next year (13).
The Brando will open for business on the paradise he bought in 1965.
Brando purchased 12 small islands north of Tahiti, called Tetiaroa, after falling in love with the area while filming Mutiny on the Bounty there in the early 1960s. He spent three decades island hopping and even opened a hotel there, but he abandoned his dream of creating an eco resort after his son Christian killed Dag Drollet, the boyfriend of Brando's daughter Cheyenne, on Tetiaroa in 1990.
Brando's estate executor Mike Medavoy gave permission to Tahitian developer Richard Bailey to build an eco-friendly hotel on one of the main islands after the movie star died in 2004. The project was signed off by Brando's heirs, who will benefit from the resort's profits.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the new 35-villa resort's energy will be 100 per cent renewable via solar power, deep ocean-water cooling and coconut oil biofuel.
