Now that most of the world is open again, we are all ready for a big, celebratory trip in a few months when the pandemic has finally eased up. CNN has published a list of the best resorts in the world that are worth spending a lot of money on.
In first place is The Brando, located on the island of Tetiaroa, 80 kilometers north of Tahiti. This island was bought by the legendary actor Marlon Brando in 1960 after he shot scenes for the movie "Mutiny on the Bounty" there.
Numerous stars regularly stay in this hotel, including Leonardo DiCaprio, Bradley Cooper, Ellen DeGeneres, Barack Obama, Kim Kardashian and others. A night costs 3,200 dollars. Matakauri Lodge in New Zealand took second place.
It is located not far from Queenstown and overlooks The Remarkables mountain range. Tourists can enjoy many activities here, some of which are: skydiving, rafting and bungee jumping. For those who only want to relax, there is a spa center.
If you want to visit it, you have to spend 1,130$ per night. Sensei Lanai, a Four Seasons resort on the Hawaiian island of Lanai, is also on this list. The environment is so peaceful that you will feel like you are staying on a private island.
