It seems that Marlon Brando knew a thing or two about unwinding. After completing the movie Mutiny on the Bounty in French Polynesia, Marlon Brando bought a 12-islands atoll named Tetiaroa north of Tahiti in 1967.
In 2014, The Brando Resort was born on that same island. True to Marlon Brando’s desire to build in an environmentally-friendly fashion, The Brando offers its guests a luxurious and enriching travel experience in an environmentally sustainable and culturally rich setting.
The world has taken notice. The Brando has been nominated and awarded countless times as one of the best hotels in the world since its opening. It has also become a place of choice for A-list celebrities. The private island hotel is indeed the perfect place to relax away from the crowd.
Tetiaroa is beautiful beyond my capacity to describe. One could say that Tetiaroa is the tincture of the South Seas.”
– Marlon Brando
The Brando on Tetiaroa Private Island is one of the best luxury hotels in the world
While most of the French Polynesian islands, such as Bora Bora and Tahiti, are hosts to imposing volcanoes and lush tropical forests, Tetiaroa is a secluded lagoon with white sandy beaches and coral reefs.
You reach The Brando by taking a beautiful 20-minute private flight with Air Tetiaroa from Papeete’s international airport in Tahiti. The private airline that transports guests between Tahiti and Tetiaroa is the only way to arrive at the resort. Once you reach Tetiaroa, you’ll discover the discreet and private 35 villas of The Brando. You can expect frequented appearances by sea turtles, manta rays and exotic birds during your stay, but little else to disturb your tranquillity.
In typical French hospitality fashion, the staff at The Brando remains discreet but always available and attentive to fulfil guests needs.
The hotel’s two restaurants are of particular notice. Offering a Polynesian-inspired menu that mixes fusion dishes and classic French cuisine, award-winning Chef Guy Martin of the Michelin two-star restaurant Le Grand Véfour in Paris, is sure to excite your senses. The Chef designed the menu of the hotel’s two restaurants as well as the in-villa dining menu. You will find a perfect balance of local catches and fresh seasonal ingredients that are naturally grown in The Brando’s gardens.
Once you are well-rested and re-energised, you can enjoy The Brando carefully-crafted selection of daily activities. From bicycling, snorkelling and bird watching to diving and paddle boarding, you’ll find plenty of options to explore and discover the Tetiaroa Private Island.
