The Brando, Tetiaroa, Tahiti

‘‘

my mind is always

soothed

...when i imagine

myself sitting on

my south sea island.

— MARLON BRANDO

while shooting the 1962 film “Mutiny on the Bounty,” Hollywood legend Marlon Brando

fell in love with his leading lady — and French Polynesia. By 1967 he realized his vision of transforming the paradisiacal atoll of Tetiaroa into a private eco-retreat that’s perfectly intertwined with its natural surrounds.

Today, that dream has emerged

as The Brando, occupying its own private motu (islet) in a 12-island cluster surrounding a lagoon some 30 miles north of Tahiti, where discerning travelers seek a simpler, more secluded lifestyle. Leisurely days come naturally when you’re staying in one of the 35 solar- and biofuel-powered villas on a stretch of private beachfront.

Casual fare by day gives way to fine dining in the evening at Les Mutinés. Led by Michelin-starred chef Guy Martin, who elevates Polynesian- inspired cuisine to the sublime, the

exotic ingredients that appear on your plates — papaya, breadfruit, squash, shellfish — are nurtured in the island’s orchards and gardens and harvested from its waters.

Outdoor activities unite you with Tetiaroa’s landscape: a naturalist-guided

bird discovery tour explores some

of Tahiti’s largest colonies of snowy white terns and baby brown boobies, while an exploratory lagoon outing in an outrigger canoe imparts a sense

of Polynesian sport and tradition.

Of course, if total relaxation is your aim, a holistic 50-minute treatment at

Varua Polynesian Spa is a tempting option, our compliments to you.
