the brando, french polynesia

the island you daydreamed of as a child when the storybook was shut.

“One could say that Tetiaroa is the tincture of the South Seas”, Marlon Brando.

The Brando is a unique luxury eco-resort on French Polynesia’s breathtakingly beautiful private island of Tetiaroa – an atoll composed of a dozen small islands surrounding a sparkling lagoon 30 miles northeast of Tahiti.

The Brando offers carefree luxury in the midst of pristine nature.

With access to the island by private plane, the resort features 35 (one, two, or three-bedroom) villas on white-sand beaches frequented by sea turtles, manta rays, and exotic birds.

The resort was designed to reflect Polynesian lifestyles and culture.


The three-bedroom Polynesian style residence provides approximately 6,000 sq ft (557 m2) of living area, including around 3,000 sq ft (279 sq.m) of enclosed air-conditioned space and around 3,000 sq ft (279 sq.m) of outside decking and pool area.

All Brando Residences preserve the natural biodiversity of Tetiaroa while respecting the Polynesian culture and achieving a zero-carbon footprint.


Inside the 1,033-sq.-ft. (96-sq.-m) one-bedroom villa or in any of the 1,808-sq.-ft. (168-sq.-m) two-bedroom villas, you will feel right at home.

Each villa blends into the surroundings and is carefully designed to mimic its serenity, making you feel as though there is a seamless transition from the indoor to the outdoor.


Guests of the Brando Residence enjoy full access to all resort activities and amenities, including multiple restaurants, water sports, a luxurious Polynesian spa, lagoon-view bar, beach bar, fitness center, organic garden, library, pearl shop, and a boutique.
