E&T reports from Tetiaroa, Marlon Brando's French Polynesian getaway, now trying to become energy self-sufficient and environmentally sustainable.

Tetiaroa is a French Polynesian atoll and was the sanctuary of Marlon Brando, who fell in love with the place after filming 'Mutiny on the Bounty' there. It comprises 13 small South Pacific islets surrounding a turquoise lagoon and is situated just 20 minutes by air, or two hours by catamaran, from Tahiti.
Brando constructed a small, low-key 'resort' on Tetiaroa where he and his Hollywood friends could escape the clamour and glaring lights of celebrity, but his marriage fell apart and the 'hotel' fell into disrepair after ten years. Nonetheless, Brando always loved the quiet serenity of Tetiaroa and dreamt of building a resort that not only showcased the exquisite beauty of the place, but enhanced and protected its unique natural and cultural resources.
Before his death in 2004, Brando consulted with his friend and hotelier Richard Bailey about building his dream hotel on Motu Onetahi – the only inhabited island in the Tetiaroa chain. He wanted it to be an example of modern luxury in harmony with the atoll's natural resources; powered by clean, locally generated renewable energy.
