The Brando, Tetiaroa Tahiti. Marlon Brando’s private island.

Posted on April 16, 2014 | , , | 2 Comments

The Brando is a unique luxury resort on French Polynesia’s breathtakingly beautiful private island of Tetiaroa, a sparkling lagoon 30 miles northeast of Tahiti. With access to the island by private plane, the resort features 35 villas on white-sand beaches frequented by sea turtles, manta rays and exotic birds.

The resort took its name from the famous actor Marlon Brando who first came to Tetiaroa while filming Mutiny on the Bounty and was immediately fell in love by the island’s rare beauty. Enthralled by the Polynesian way of life and lady Tarita, the love of his life, he resolved to find a way to own this piece of paradise and succeeded in his goal in 1967. It was in this natural wonderland that he settled down, and finally found a home. It was the sense it gave him, of being closer to paradise..!


Brando was passionate about preserving Tetiaroa’s natural beauty, biodiversity and cultural richness and was determined to find a way in which it could be a center for research and education and a model of sustainability. This is how the vision of the world’s first and foremost resort was created, where innovative new technologies would enable a self-sustaining luxury environment. Although the actor’s dreams were never fully realized during his lifetime, publicity around the opening of the Brando luxury eco-retreat on July 1 — the 10th anniversary of Brando’s death — should also bring attention to the environmental research already taking place on the atoll under the auspices of the Tetiaroa Society.

As far as the accommodation is concerned, each villa blend with the serenity of the surroundings, so that the guest will feel as though indoors and outdoors have merged together. Some of the villas also provide a private dining area, a kitchen,  tiered deck.


The resort was designed to reflect Polynesian lifestyles and culture and the guest will find an abundance of activities from bicycling, snorkeling and bird watching to diving and paddle boarding. In addition the resort has two restaurants with Polynesian-inspired dishes, two bars, a spa and two boutiques including a luxury pearl shop and a gift store.
