Everything you need to know about Pippa Middleton's FIRST honeymoon destination

Actually jaw-dropping.

By Amber Elias
Pippa Middleton is on her honeymoon with husband James Matthews and it's just as lavish and luxurious as you would imagine. If their wedding is anything to go by, they were not going to book in to a local motel.
Even though it was rumoured the newlyweds would spend their break at James' Scottish manor house, the couple has opted for a tropical island resort, away from prying eyes.

The eco-friendly resort is called The Brando which is located on the island of Tetiaroa, located in French Polynesia. The private island is a favourite with celebrities, and previously hosted Michelle and Barack Obama earlier this year for their post-presidency holiday.
According to the resort's website, a one-bedroom villa for two people will set you back a minimum of $5000 per night. Ouch.
For something more spacious, a three-bedroom villa costs about $14,000 per night - thankfully that price includes breakfast!

The resort is called The Brando because it was named after Hollywood heavyweight Marlon Brando, who purchased the island in the '60s after falling in love with it during the filming of his 1962 flick Mutiny on the Bounty.
Sadly Marlon passed away in 2004, before he saw his dream built. The resort didn't open until a decade later in late 2014.
Since opening, it has become a celebrity hot spot for stars looking to get away from city life and enjoy a exotic location. After all, you need to take a private plane to get there!
Leonardo DiCaprio and Barbra Streisand are even reportedly previous guests.
The island resort is environmentally conscious, making use of seawater air-conditioning, solar electricity and generators running on coconut oil.
