Welcome to The Brando: an exquisite luxury resort on French Polynesia’s breathtakingly beautiful private atoll of Tetiaroa — an atoll composed of a dozen small islands surrounding a sparkling lagoon 30 miles north of Tahiti. With easy access from Papeete, Tahiti on Air Tetiaroa, The Brando offers carefree luxury in the midst of pristine nature.

The Brando was inspired by Marlon Brando’s original vision to create a venture of sustainable development that both resonates with visitors and fosters opportunities to get to know the place and people of French Polynesia. Forbes Travel Guide, the world-renowned and only global rating system for luxury hotels, restaurants and spas, announced this week its annual Star Rating list, presenting The Brando with its coveted five-star rating.

The Brando is the first and only resort in French Polynesia to be LEED platinum certified and is a pioneering model of sustainable technology, with cutting edge renewable energy programs like sea water air-conditioning.  The all-inclusive resort features 35 deluxe villas with private beach access and plunge pools, restaurants showcasing Polynesian and French cuisine, a luxurious Polynesian spa, a lagoon-view bar, beach bar, pool, organic garden, library, pearl shop, boutique, water sports, and an Eco-station. The Eco-station is a hub where scientists from around the world can lead research into sustainable interdependence, implement these lessons on Tetiaroa, and spread findings globally to improve our relationship with nature.

Whether it be holding hands while strolling along the white-sand beach or sipping champagne while watching a technicolor sunset over a turquoise lagoon, the romantic opportunities are endless. From enjoying an intimate gourmet dinner served on the beach to listening to the gentle lapping of waves from the privacy of your villa, there is simply no more romantic or exotic setting for your special occasion. Be it a honeymoon, wedding, anniversary, or birthday, let Esplanade take care of all the details so you can focus on relaxation, rejuvenation, and making lifelong memories.

This Valentine’s Day, do more than dream about your stay at The Brando – contact Esplanade and make it a reality.

Get in Touch

In an era where we even wondered if travel agents still existed, we found Esplanade Travel and are so happy we did! Just came back from two plus weeks in New Zealand and had a fabulous time - in many ways because of Ksusha! She took the time to get to know us a bit, what was important to us, our budget and LISTENED to us! As a result, we were able to put together a trip of a lifetime that combined what WE had on our list as well as her many suggestions. From the moment we arrived in Auckland and were met, as scheduled and planned, at the Auckland Airport - to tours and accommodations along the way, the execution of our plans were essentially flawless. Couldn’t have been happier and more pleased. Thank you Esplanade and Ksusha. You rock!!
