The Brando – An Extraordinary Tropical Resort


Yes, that Brando…

The year was 1960, and Marlon Brando was filming a little film called Mutiny on the Bounty.  While on location he discovers an atoll called Tetiaroa and falls in love with the place.  Well, interesting fellow that Marlon was, six years later he buys the atoll for a tidy $270,000.

“Mine, all mine!”  or something like that…
Over the years Brando’s plans for the small chunk of paradise changed and evolved, and before he passed, he decided it was to become a resort to share with the world.  Construction began in 2009 and now we have the luxurious eco-resort known as The Brando.

One look and you will know why the man fell head over heels for the place. Truly a tropical paradise. 
33 miles north of Tahiti, The Brando is made up of 35 villas, each privately tucked away in the thick foliage.  Most are of the one-bedroom variety, but there are also four 2-bedroom and one 3-bedroom.  Take your pick… 

The one bedroom villas are 1,033 sq. ft. and include a King bed, wi-fi, outdoor tub and private plunge pool.  Other amenities include a pair of restaurants put together by award-winning chef Guy Martin from the two Michelin starred Le Grand Véfour in Paris. Of course you can always dine in room.  If you need to relax even further, pay a visit to the Varua Polynesian Spa.  The stress is guaranteed to melt away… For the more active type, snorkeling, diving, bicycling, paddle boarding and kayaking are available.  Or maybe just sit in the sand under a palm and do… absolutely… nothing…
All-inclusive rates are available, starting at Euro 2,400/day for the 1 bedroom villas during low season.  That’s roughly $2,600/day.  Not cheap, but nobody ever said that paradise came easy…  

For what may be the ultimate in private relaxation and full-on getaway, book your stay now. 
Extraordinary indeed..!
