Designed to reflect Polynesian lifestyle and culture, The Brando is unique in concept and scope, combining environmental purity, luxury and Polynesian charm into an enriching experience.
Tetiaroa is comprised of a dozen idyllic islands surrounding a spectacular lagoon where The Brando is located on the motu of Onetahi, a 193 acre island. The Tetiaroa Atoll can be reached by a 20 minute charter flight from a private terminal at Tahiti’s Faa’a International Airport, landing on the resort’s own airstrip on one of two 8-passenger Britten Norman airplanes (turboprop twin-engine).
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. Two- and three-bedroom villas are available.
The cuisine at The Brando is prepared by Guy Martin of the Michelin two-star restaurant, Le Grand Véfour in Paris. The organic garden and orchard provides organically grown fruits and vegetables for the day and the honey is made by Tetiaroa Bees for cocktails and desserts. In-room dining is available 24 hours a day, either indoors, on their private deck, poolside, or on the beach.
Varua Polynesian Spa is nestled in coconut palms and offers Polynesian therapies and modern treatments. The spa includes steam baths, a tea lounge and a relaxation room, a yoga shelter and a spa suite for couples. The Fitness Center at The Brando offers an air-conditioned area with cardio and strength training equipment and is accessible 24 hours a day.
Activities and Excursions are abundant at The Brando and available every day. From bicycling to snorkeling, bird watching, sailing, 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 exploring the lush gardens, or relaxing at the beach or beachfront infinity pool.
