This all-inclusive Polynesian property brings star power and eco-friendly attitudes to a private island paradise.
Situated on white sand beaches where exotic birds and sea turtles often appear, The Brando’s 35 ultra-luxury villas spoil guests with plunge pools, gardens, stocked refrigerators and breathtaking scenery. The private atoll of Tetiaroa was once owned by Marlon Brando, who fell in love with this part of the world while filming "Mutiny on the Bounty."
The eco-resort is accessible by plane from Tahiti’s main airport. Each residential-style accommodation offers Wi-Fi, a media room, an outdoor dining nook and a private beach area. Décor and furnishings have a distinctive Polynesian flair, and large windows provide spectacular views. Water recreation includes snorkeling, kayaking, sailing, swimming and paddle boarding. Back on land, biking, tennis, a library and boutiques keep guests busy. Though, if relaxation is in order, the Varua Polynesian Spa provides holistic treatments and services in the very same spot where local royalty once performed their own beauty rituals. The resort’s two restaurants — French and East/West fusion — invite guests to feast on fish and shellfish from local waters, as well as organic fruits and vegetables grown on-site.
The luxury and service you will find are only offered by a very few hotels in the world. The Brando is for the very happy few, including former President Obama while on his one-month tour in Polynesia.
