Marlon Brando had a dream for Tetiaroa: a unique luxury resort co-existing with a center for scientific research, education and conservation. Opened in 2014, The Brando is the manifestation of that dream. The first property in French Polynesia to receive a LEED Platinum certification, our exclusive private island resort proves that sustainable travel is possible without compromising comfort or luxury. The Brando’s luxuries are many— 35 deluxe villas, each with their own private beach and plunge pool; a holistic spa; the unmatched service and hospitality of the Polynesian people. And our location? Pristine, and picture-perfect. Enjoy it all without a care in the world. You can leave the caring to us—because we care deeply: about offering you a luxurious, authentic and enriching vacation experience while protecting Tetiaroa and the planet for future generations.

Rooms & Bungalows

We’ve carefully designed each of our villas to blend into and enhance the serenity of your surroundings, so you’ll feel as though indoor and outdoor have merged together.

  • 30 one-bedroom villas
  • Four two-bedroom villas
  • One three-bedroom villa with expanded deck and pool

Dining & Amenities

Marlon Brando said that Tetiaroa is beautiful “beyond his capacity to describe”. We think you’ll agree. Every amenity on the island is oriented toward its indescribable beauty: restaurants with gorgeous views (not to mention world-class food), a stunningly situated spa, and activities and excursions through which you can explore all that is enchanting on and around the atoll.

Environmental Protection

At The Brando, we have a full time “Green Leader” and a “Green Team”, a group of hotel staff members—including a Pacific Beachcomber marine biologist/veterinarian—to brainstorm and activate ideas to conserve and protect the environment.

Together with our partner, the Tetiaroa Society, we are committed to restoring, protecting, and preserving the natural beauty, biodiversity and cultural heritage of the Tetiaroa Atoll through ongoing scientific research, education and community engagement. We continuously strive towards our goal of being a global model for sustainable travel, rooted in innovation and conservation, and in the process inspiring others to protect the planet for future generations.
