The Brando, French Polynesia
The Brando is an exquisite luxury resort on French Polynesia’s breathtakingly beautiful private atoll of Tetiaroa, just 30 miles north of Tahiti, comprised of a dozen idyllic islands surrounding a spectacular lagoon. Tetiaroa was once Marlon Brando’s personal retreat. He was passionate about preserving Tetiaroa’s cultural richness, natural beauty, and incredible biodiversity.
The all-inclusive resort features 35 deluxe villas which have been carefully designed to reflect the Polynesian lifestyle and traditions, with luxurious furnishings, deluxe amenities including a private plunge pool, and windows as big as doors that let guests indulge in the sun, the breeze, and lagoon views.
The award-winning cuisine of Guy Martin of the Michelin two star restaurant Le Grand Véfour in Paris is featured in The Brando’s dining venues. Food is served at the elegant Les Mutinés and at the Beachcomber Café, while you can have drinks with a view of the lagoon at Te Manu Bar and Bob’s Bar, where Brando himself used to spend his evenings.
Varua Polynesian Spa Is a natural haven of serenity and there are also a gym and a tennis court open 24/7.
With access provided by private plane, the resort offers carefree luxury in the midst of pristine nature and is a special place of rare biodiversity and a natural sanctuary for birds and marine life.
