Fact Sheet

The Brando is an exquisite luxury resort on French Polynesia’s breathtakingly beautiful private atoll of Tetiaroa, just 30 miles north of Tahiti. Tetiaroa is comprised of a dozen idyllic islands surrounding a spectacular lagoon. Tetiaroa has always been a place of stunning beauty, tranquility and rejuvenation — first for Tahitian royalty, who chose this island above all others for their summer retreat, and later for Marlon Brando who chose it for his personal sanctuary. With access provided by private plane, the resort offers carefree luxury in the midst of pristine nature. The all-inclusive resort features 35 deluxe villas each with its own private beach area and plunge pool, restaurants showcasing Polynesian and French cuisine, a luxurious Polynesian spa, a lagoon-view bar, beach bar, pool, organic garden, library, boutique and water sports. The Brando is unique in concept and scope, combining environmental purity, luxury and Polynesian charm into an enriching experience.

Tetiaroa’s 12 Motus (Small Islands):

• Onetahi: The Brando Resort is located on the motu that was once the favored retreat of Tahitian royalty.

• Honuea: Venture the short distance by outrigger canoe to explore white-sand beaches and a shallow,

crystalline lagoon.

• Tiaraunu: The largest of the motus with an abundance of coconut palms.

• Tauini, Tauroa & Hiraanae: The northernmost cluster of motus are separated only by little hoa (breaks in

the coral reef) and the location of lemon shark nurseries.

• Oroatera: An island paradise with spectacular beaches and a lagoon along with a seahorse-shaped pond

which spawned an ancient legend.

• Aie: The smallest of the 12 motus.

• Tahuna Iti & Tahuna Rahi: A sanctuary for birds such as red-breasted black frigates, phaetons, brown

gannets, and other petrels.

• Reiono: The only motu that has preserved its primitive, original rain forest. Reiono also serves as the

wilderness home for Kaveu (coconut crabs).

• Rimatuu: The first of these motus to be inhabited by Europeans, Rimatuu was once a coconut plantation

islet with its own village and dock.

Location: Tetiaroa is located 30 miles (60 km) north of the island of Tahiti and is surrounded on all sides by the great blue expanse of the South Pacific. The Brando is located on Onetahi a motu spanning 78 hectares (193 acres).

Access: Tetiaroa is completely private with its own airfield. Two or more roundtrip charter flights a day are planned or will be organized aboard one of two 8-passenger Britten Norman airplanes (turboprop twin- engine), duration of approximately 20 minutes, between a private terminal at Tahiti’s Faa’a International Airport and Motu Onetahi. After landing at Motu Onetahi on Tetiaroa, guests will be greeted by a representative of The Brando and escorted by electric vehicle to their private villa.

Accommodations: The 22 villas along West Turtle Beach and 13 along South Mermaid Bay have been carefully designed to reflect the Polynesian lifestyle and traditions, with luxurious furnishings, deluxe amenities including a private plunge pool, and windows as big as doors that let guests indulge in the sun, the breeze, and lagoon views. The villa’s timbered walls and native gardens are surrounded by exquisite scenery. The resort has been designed around clean, renewable energy sources, to protect this island paradise for generations to come.
