Whether you and your girlfriends threw a fun hat party this past weekend to celebrate or not (just me?), you’ve definitely heard the news about Pippa Middleton’s wedding to James Matthews in England. At the very least, you’ve seen pictures of her enviably toned arms.

But now the newlyweds are on their honeymoon—and it’s a spot you must know about before booking your next trip. Middleton and her Mr. are currently camped out (or should I say glamped out) at The Brando, a luxury resort on a privately owned island called Tetiarose (which was actually owned by Marlon Brando) in French Polynesia.

It’s a dreamy oasis surrounded by turquoise water, white sand beaches, and tropical wildlife. But that’s not all there is to it—The Brando actually has plenty of healthy extras that make maintaining your wellness game on the road a cinch.

Eyebrows raised in wanderlust-ing curiosity? Keep reading for the 4 healthiest perks at Middleton’s honeymoon destination.

1. Outdoor activities galore

From snorkeling to paddleboarding in the insanely gorgeous lagoon, Middleton and Matthews (and hopefully you) won’t run out of water activities to do. Also, the hotel offers aqua-fitness classes if you’re in the mood for targeted exercise but you don’t want to miss out on underwater time.

2. Specialized workouts

The Brando has tennis and biking, yes—but it also has everything you’d need if you don’t want to completely stop your boutique fitness game. Everything from body sculpting to dance classes are available for those looking to get their sweat on.

3. Gourmet vegan food

Besides having French- and Polynesian-inspired food, this resort has a vegan menu. But not just any ordinary plant-powered menu—renowned chef Kelvin Au-Ieong creates memorable meals with the freshest picks of the day from the hotel’s organic vegetable garden (#goals).

4. A dreamy spa

This place’s spa actually looks like a bird’s nest, and it’s perched among the trees to give your massage a forest-bathing-esque boost. And you can choose from various holistic treatments, from luxe facials to a sacred bath and even an Indian head massage. Another option is a full-body marine scrub that uses black Tahitian sand to detoxify your skin. (Sounds like Istanbul has some competition, in terms of intense dermis-removing destinations.)
