The Brando: Green paradise


Beloved by Marlon Brando who discovered it in 1962 while shooting “Mutiny on the Bounty”, Tetiaroa is one of the islands of the atoll located in French Polynesia, about 30 miles from Tahiti. Here lies The brando, a beautiful resort that combines luxury with the care for environmental sustainability.

Now that the exit from the pandemic tunnel seems luckily closer, our desire to travel gets more intense and unstoppable. We understandably can’t wait to savour again the pleasure of discovering the magic of new places, better if uncontaminated and not yet spoiled by the often nefarious human action. The resort that we are introducing you has all the features to satisfy this need. It is The Brando, an eco-luxury resort located on the private island of Tetiaroa, French Polynesia, perfect place to spend a holiday in the name of luxury and privacy. The resort is named after Marlon Brando who discovered and fell in love with this island in 1962 while shooting “Mutiny on the Bounty” and then decided to move there. The resort, only accessible by private plane, is made up of 35 villas overlooking white sandy beaches frequented by sea turtles, rays and exotic birds.

The villas situated along the West Turtle Beach and the South Mermaid Bay have private beach and pool and different sizes ranging from 96 sqm (the one-bedroom villas) to 2-bedroom (168 sqm) up to 3-bedroom ones (246 sqm). What makes this place unique is also the attention to environmental sustainability: the whole resort’s air conditioning system uses sea water, the entire island is carbon-free, while electricity is taken from coconut oil. The Brando Resort has 2 bars (Main Bar Lounge and Bob’s) as well as 2 restaurants: Beachfront Restaurant with an amazing ocean view, open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, where French and Polynesian specialties are served and Fine Dining, open for dinner by reservation, with specialties made by well-known Chef Guy Martin accompanied by prestigious wines.
