Tetiaroa is comprised of a dozen idyllic islands surrounding a spectacular lagoon. 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 watersports. The Brando is unique in concept and scope, combining environmental purity, luxury and Polynesian charm into an enriching experience.
The three-bedroom villa provides an opportunity for friends or a larger family to stay together. The third bedroom is separated from the main villa by an above-ground walkway, and includes its own dressing room, bathroom and outdoor bathtub. The private outdoor space has been upgraded with high end furnishing, which includes an expanded deck and a 236 sq. ft. pool.
The Brando Resort is located on the motu Onetahi that was once the favored retreat of Tahitian royalty. Honuea, at a short distance and easy to reach by outrigger canoe... or by foot will seduce you with its white-sand beaches bordered by a shallow water of a crystalline lagoon. The largest of the motus is Tiaraunu with an abundance of coconut palms. On the north part of the lagoon are Tauini, Tauroa & Hiraanae, separated from each other by a little hoa (breaks in the coral reef) on this location you will meet the lemon shark nurserie. Oroatera is an island at paradise with spectacular beaches and a lagoon along with a seahorse-shaped pond which spawned an ancient legend. The smallest of the 12 motus is Aie. The first motu inhabited by europeans, Rimatuu was once a coconut plantation islet with its own village and a dock.
The resort is committed to preserving and protecting the precious biodiversity of Tetiaroa; respecting and supporting Polynesian culture, hospitality and traditions; and achieving a negligible carbon footprint.
The islets of Tahuna Iti & Tahuna Rahi are sanctuaries for birds such as red-breasted black frigates, phaetons, brown gannets, and other petrels. The only motu that has preserved its primitive rain forest is Reiono also the wilderness home for Kaveu (coconut crabs).
Sea Water Air Conditioning (SWAC) is used to provide low-energy and high efficiency cooling for all buildings, reducing energy demands by almost 70%. Solar energy is produced from photovoltaic solar panels along the airstrip to provide over half of the resort’s remaining energy needs. The resort also uses coconut oil biofuel for its power station whenever it can be procured. Flow-batteries for storage of energy generated from solar power are made primarily from recyclable materials and have a service life of thousands of discharge cycles.
The resort coming close to achieving the ambitious goal of net zero carbon impact. To reduce or eliminate guest travel-related carbon emissions, all vehicles will ultimately be sun-powered and bicycles will be provided to all guests for moving around the island.
In the 1970s, Marlon Brando dreamed of building a “university of the sea” on Tetiaroa that would educate others about the many facets of this island. The Ecostation – named “Te Fare rauihi” (The House of Multiple Sciences) is a hub where scientists from around the world can lead research into sustainable interdependence, implement these lessons on Tetiaroa, and teach them globally to improve our relationship with nature.
Platinum LEED Building:
The Brando is the first resort in the world to obtain LEED Platinum certification, the organisation’s highest accolade.
The resort has a shaded garden where vegetables and fruits are grown through innovative farming techniques.
