This tiny, pristine atoll sits 36 miles north of the island of Tahiti, in the Windward Islands, part of the Society Island archipelago. Only accessible by a 20 minute Air Tetiaroa private flight from Tahiti, Tetiaroa is an idyllic island escape at its best! Just 4.5 miles wide, consisting of 12 motus (islets) and surrounded by a protective coral reef, this enchanted atoll is home to one of French Polynesia’s only protected bird sanctuaries as well as an intact and healthy marine environment – and from July 2014, it will also be home to an exclusive luxury hideaway; The Brando.
The 12 motus epitomise the quintessential tropical paradise: swaying coconut palms, white-sand beaches and coral reefs brimming with multi-coloured fish. Tetiaroa has long been a privileged retreat – first for Tahitian royalty, then privately-owned by the late Marlon Brando after he fell in love with this exquisite atoll whilst filming Mutiny on the Bounty in 1966.
The Brando is a unique resort and model of sustainable technology on a private island. Inspired by Marlon Brando’s original vision to create a venture of sustainable development that resonates with visitors and fosters opportunities to get to know both the place and people of French Polynesia. The Brando features 35 villas with private plunge pools, two restaurants, a bar lounge, a beach bar, a spa, fitness centre, pool, library, tennis court, organic garden and orchard, pearl shop, private airfield, an EcoStation, and various island and lagoon activities.
The Brando offers carefree luxury in the midst of pristine nature. A feast for the senses… incomparable luxury, delectable fine dining, sumptuous spa experiences and personalised service tailored to each guest’s every whim.
