Tetiaroa, Onetahi, 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.
Tetiaroa has always been a place of stunning beauty, tranquility, and rejuvenation — first for Tahitian royalty, who chose this island above all others for their summer retreat, and later for Marlon Brando who chose it for his personal sanctuary.
With access provided by private plane, the resort offers carefree luxury in the midst of pristine nature.
The all-inclusive resort features 35 deluxe villas each with its own private beach area and plunge pool, restaurants showcasing Polynesian and French cuisine, a luxurious Polynesian spa, a lagoon-view bar, beach bar, pool, organic garden, library, boutique and water sports.
The best part of the resort, of course, is the natural surrounds: a pristine lagoon setting, with ocean water so clear you can spot sea turtles and sting rays swimming by from your beach chairs.
The best activity is the complimentary speedboat ride through the lagoon to other islets in the Tetiaroa belt that are completely pristine and filled with island birds.
The water is clear and piercing, almost like neon milk. It is mesmerizing.
The Brando includes all meals, some alcohol, one massage per day, all non-motorized sports, and one guided activity per day (like a worthwhile visit to the nearby bird sanctuary).
Tetiaroa is located 30 miles (60 km) north of the island of Tahiti and is surrounded on all sides by the great blue expanse of the South Pacific. The Brando is located on Onetahi a motu spanning 78 hectares (193 acres).
Tetiaroa is completely private with its own airfield. Two or more roundtrip charter flights a day are planned or will be organized aboard one of two 8-passenger Britten Norman airplanes (turboprop twin-engine), duration of approximately 20 minutes, between a private terminal at Tahiti’s Faa’a International Airport and Motu Onetahi.
After landing at Motu Onetahi on Tetiaroa, guests will be greeted by a representative of The Brando and escorted by electric vehicle to their private villa.
Dining

In-Room dining is available 24 hours a day, to enjoy a meal in the privacy of the guest’s villa—either indoors, on their private deck, poolside, or on the beach.

Organic Garden & Orchard is made for the Brando’s Chef who select fresh organically grown fruits and vegetables on Tetiaroa and prepare for guests in the dining venues. The honey is deliciously made by Tetiaroa Bees and is used in our cocktails but also in our delicate desserts.

LES MUTINÉS

The fine dining restaurant featuring elegant décor in beautiful tones of tropical light and sand and a moat that surrounds the restaurant provides the sensation of floating on a lagoon. The intimate restaurant also includes a world-class wine cellar in a carefully climate-controlled glass enclosure. A menu with the same regard for flavor and quality that has made Le Grand Véfour one of the most respected dining established in Paris is showcased.

TE MANU BAR

This open-air bar presents spectacular views of the lagoon, distant motus and sunsets. In addition to the main lounge, there are several private tree-level seating areas that can be reached on walkways through the palm canopy.

Varua Polynesian Spa

A natural haven of serenity nestled on the shores of a soothing pond in the heart of Motu Onetahi. Within this setting the finest holistic treatments are offered inspired by ancient Polynesian traditions coupled with modern techniques. The spa includes steam baths, a tea lounge and a relaxation room, a yoga shelter and a spa suite for couples.

Fitness

The Fitness Center at The Brando offers an air-conditioned area with cardio and strength training equipment and is accessible 24 hours a day.

The Tennis Court is open 24h hours a day with the equipment for use and a personal trainer if needed.

EcoStation

Research station with a laboratory where scientists from around the world conduct field research relating to preserving and protecting Tetiaroa and its plant and animal life and helping preserve and protect tropical islands everywhere. The on-site research scientists will be delighted to talk to guests about their research and the birds and marine life found on the atoll.

Activities and Excursions

From bicycling to snorkeling, bird watching, paddle boarding or scuba diving. Experience the nature, the plants, birds, the old native forest, the lemon-shark nursery, and other marine life. Spend time on the main island or discover the untouched private islands surrounding the lagoon. Explore the spectacular lagoon by Polynesian outrigger canoe or kayak. Other activities include taking a guided boat tour of the atoll’s motus, stargazing with a naturalist, swimming at Mermaid Bay or relaxing at the beach or pool.

The 22 villas along West Turtle Beach and 13 along South Mermaid Bay 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 villa’s timbered walls and native gardens are surrounded by exquisite scenery. The resort has been designed around clean, renewable energy sources, to protect this island paradise for generations to come.
