The South Pacific’s hottest new property is The Brando on the private atoll of Tetiaroa, some 30 miles north of Tahiti. Bought by Marlon Brando in 1967 after he fell in love with the island while filming Mutiny on the Bounty, it is the realisation of his vision to create a pioneering, sustainable, all-inclusive luxury resort.
Protecting the natural beauty of Tetiaroa is integral to The Brando, which means many of the activities on offer promote discovery of the island, such as; snorkelling in the coral garden, Polynesian canoeing, pearl shopping and guided tours by expert naturalists.
A selection of 35 private villas are available for your all-inclusive stay, each with a private pool and fronted by the pristine white sand beaches. Dining can be enjoyed in two restaurants, with dishes selected for their showcasing of Polynesian and French flavours and ingredients sourced from the island’s organic fruit and vegetable garden.
The Brando’s spa and wellness centre boasts treatment villas located around a lily-covered pond, or for when you’re feeling a little more active there’s paddleboards and kayaks to explore the lagoon, and snorkelling gear to journey under the surface.
Take home a memento to ensure you never forget your time in French Polynesia with a visit to the two shops, including Hinerava; offering a selection of stunning Tahitian pearl jewellery.
