“Tetiaroa is beautiful beyond my capacity to describe.
One could say that Tetiaroa is the tincture of the South Seas.”
The Brando is a unique luxury resort on French Polynesia’s breathtakingly beautiful private island of Tetiaroa – an atoll composed of a dozen small islands surrounding a sparkling lagoon 30 miles northeast of Tahiti. The Brando offers carefree luxury in the midst of pristine nature. 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 was designed to reflect Polynesian lifestyles and culture.
All building materials used are of local or certified origin, renewable, or incorporate recycled components. The Brando utilizes a pioneering deep seawater air-conditioning system to reduce energy demands and rely entirely on renewable energy sources including solar power and bio-fuel whenever it can be procured. Setting a new world standard, the resort is close to reach its goal of being carbon neutral and self-sustainable. The Brando have built and gifted an Ecostation to Tetiaroa Society, the nonprofit organization established to lead the scientific and cultural mission to protect the atoll and to inspire sustainable interdependence on Tetiaroa and around the world.
