As far as illustrious beachfront hotels go, The Brando is easily in the top five globally. A true testament to its exclusivity and vision, such luxury is hardly cheap. However, why not enjoy one of the best places in life cash can buy?

Stay at The Brando

Savour a taste of the finer things in life, by submitting to raw experience at The Brando. This is the mesmerising atoll of actor Marlon Brando, who first fell in love with the archipelago in the middle of a shoot. Later, it became his escape from Hollywood. To this day, it remains a retreat for the adventurous, those who crave enriching encounters whilst ensuring the traditions of Polynesia stay pristine.From your base at this unique resort, comfort is abundant. Turquoise waters frequented by sea turtles lay just beyond your door. The rest of the islets that make up Tetiaroa remain entirely intact, preserved in their state of lush vegetation, a paradise of green and blue. Revel in this verdant splendour, with dining that respects local flavour. Cherish sensual and sustainable spa treatments, beside the balanced beauty of truly carefree luxury.


Placed just north of Tahiti, The Brando finds its home among the Tetiaroa atoll. Motu Onetahi (the islet the resort is actually on) is only reachable by helicopter or small plane, which typically departs via a private terminal at Faa’a International Airport.


The 35 oceanfront villas here are masterfully imagined, featuring idyllic thatched roofs and a range of 1-3 bedrooms. Surprises within include a media room, outdoor dining area, private deck with pool and exclusive sliver of white sand beach.

Who is it for

This is the perfect choice for those who seek ultimate luxury experience. Twosomes searching for seclusion will not be disappointed. Meanwhile, the multi-room villas are ideal for families or larger groups, though there are no child-specific amenities.

Facilities & activities

Hidden between coconut palms, the Varua Spa is a true highlight. There’s also a fitness centre, tennis court, watersports and excursions to the island's eco-station or lagoon. Dining, too, is varied, with meals served a la carte style in the Beachcomber Cafe or overseen by Michelin talent at main restaurant Les Mutines.
