Windstar Cruises and Pacific Beachcomber Announce New Collaboration

Windstar Cruises has announced a new collaboration with Pacific Beachcomber, luxury operator of seven hotels in French Polynesia.

A hallmark of the expanded partnership is the addition of two-night stay packages at The Brando, Pacific Beachcomber’s private island eco-resort. The Brando has just 35 private villas, all located on white-sand beaches overlooking a five-mile-wide lagoon. The resort is frequented by celebrities and was named for the late Marlon Brando, who purchased the atoll in the 1960s. Guests of The Brando can enjoy snorkeling, bird watching, cultural and archeological expeditions, and resort amenities such as the Varua Te Ora Polynesian Spa.

Available from May 1, 2024, as a post-cruise add-on, this package is reserved for guests in Star Breeze’s top suites: the Broadmoor, Sea Island and Owner’s Suites. The experience includes daily excursions, 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. 

Windstar has partnered with Pacific Beachcomber’s InterContinental Tahiti Resort & Spa in Papeete since February for pre- and post-cruise stays on the island of Tahiti. The resort has also been incorporated into Windstar’s “Air + Hotel” packages from both Los Angeles and Seattle.

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 simply disembark from the ship and are whisked away to an overwater bungalow for the night—a bucket-list wish for most visiting Tahiti.
