The Brando
Private atoll of Tetiaroa - French Polynesia


The Brando is a unique luxury resort on French Polynesia's breathtakingly beautiful atoll of Tetiaroa. It sits on one of a dozen small islands (motus) that surround a spectacular three-mile wide lagoon. The motus are all privately owned and available exclusively to the resort's guests and visiting researchers. The Brando has achieved the LEED Platinium level Certification and is one of the National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World founding member.

With access to the atoll by a 20-minute scenic flight from Tahiti, the all-inclusive resort features 35 secluded One-, Two- and Three-Bedroom villas with private pools on beautiful white-sand beaches frequented by sea turtles and exotic birds.

This Polynesian style resort offers two restaurants showcasing Polynesian-inspired dishes, East/West fusion and classic French cuisine; a luxurious spa and wellness center with several massage and treatment villas around a serene lily-covered pond; an organic garden where fruits and vegetables for the resort's restaurants are grown; a lagoon-view bar in the canopy of the palm trees; a beach bar near a large infinity pool; a tennis court; library and cultural center; boutiques; and an environmental research station with guest programs. 


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.

Since this year, The Brando has also inaugurated its latest luxury villa, the Residence Teremoana, with 3 bedrooms for up to 6 people (+ staff quarter at the back of the villa). Located slightly away from the rest of the resort, it is designed to live in perfect autonomy. A splendor!

Varua Polynesian Spa

Varua Te Ora Polynesian Spa is a unique haven of tranquillity nestled on a restful pond in the heart of the atoll of Tetiaroa. Varua, meaning “the Soul”, perpetuates the tradition established by the Royal family who used to retreat here to relax and indulge in beauty rituals.

Blending into the lush vegetation, it is a hidden oasis at the end of a path through the tropical undergrowth. The Spa is in harmony with its surroundings of plant life, water and wood. Aware of the need to preserve its pure and unspoilt habitat, it offers unrivalled holistic treatments inspired by international and ancestral Polynesian techniques in a truly exceptional setting.

The Spa suites offer amazing views over 2000 sqm of natural landscape on an islet covered in abundant vegetation. And high above in the trees sits Fare Manu, an exceptional suite nesting like a cocoon between heaven and earth. The Spa also has quiet spaces for relaxation including a steam bath, a waterfall, a tea lounge and the Fare Mana, an area sets aside for gentle energies.
