TETIAROA, FRENCH POLYNESIA  – The Brando, an exquisite luxury resort on French Polynesia’s breathtakingly beautiful private atoll of Tetiaroa, composed of a dozen idyllic islets surrounding a sparkling lagoon 30 miles north of Tahiti, is now officially open.

Setting a new world standard in hospitality, The Brando is a pioneering model of sustainable technology with seawater air-conditioning and renewable energies, without any sacrifice to luxury or comfort. Designed to reflect Polynesian lifestyles and culture, the all-inclusive resort features 35 deluxe villas, each with its own private beach area and plunge pool and offers carefree luxury in the midst of pristine nature.  Exclusive and private, access to The Brando is a 20-minute flight from Tahiti by Air Tetiaroa to Tetiaroa’s airfield.

“There is nothing like The Brando in the world, and we look forward to sharing this paradise with our guests and making their stays with us truly memorable and life enriching,” said Silvio Bion, General Manager, The Brando.

 

The award-winning cuisine of Guy Martin of the Michelin two star restaurant Le Grand Véfour in Paris is featured in all dining venues and in-room dining. The resort’s two restaurants showcase Polynesian-inspired dishes, East/West fusion and classic French cuisine. Les Mutinés is The Brando’s fine dining restaurant with a world-class wine cellar. The Beachfront Café offers indoor and beach dining. The resort’s Te Manu Bar features lagoon views and private tree-top seating areas reached on walkways through a palm canopy. Bob’s Bar is a casual setting on the beach.

 

The Brando’s Varua Polynesian Spa specializes in the finest holistic treatments which are inspired by ancient Polynesian traditions coupled with modern techniques. The spa includes private massage and treatment villas, steam baths, a tea and relaxation lounge overlooking the pond, a yoga shelter and a special spa suite for couples high up in the palm trees.
