Pippa Middleton Is Honeymooning On Barack Obama's Island Of Choice

These bungalows are fit for the famous.

Newlyweds Pippa Middleton and James Matthews are reportedly heading to an island in the South Pacific for an uber luxurious honeymoon ― and their destination couldn’t be hotter these days.

A day after their wedding in Englefield, England, E! reports the couple braved security lines at Los Angeles International Airport Sunday evening on their way to Tetiaroa, French Polynesia. It’s the same private island where Barack Obama recently spent a month working on a book before yachting around with the likes of Oprah, Tom Hanks and Bruce Springsteen, so it’s safe to say Tetiaroa is having a moment right now.

Tetiaroa is technically a small atoll. Just north of Tahiti in the Society Islands, it once belonged to Marlon Brando. In 2014, a decade after his death, the place was transformed with a dreamy ecologically friendly resort called The Brando.

The Brando features 35 private villas, which run from $2,800 to $13,300 per night. Activities include swimming, kayaking and paddleboarding, which the Obamas did during their visit to the area.

Middleton has shown a preference for islands before, such as when she and her brother visited St. Barts for New Year’s or when the entire family went to Mustique. Her bachelorette party, however, took place in the French Alps last month.

And now, it’s time for some South Pacific sun. Take us with you?!
