PRIVATE LUXURY: The Brando, Tahiti
UPDATE: Following the temporary closure due to the worldwide Covid-19 outbreak The Brando is due to re-open 15th July 2020 
NOT SO MUCH the Wild Bunch, as the Wild One Marlon Brando lived life to the rhythm of his own eccentric beat. He retreated from the world to a private Tahitian paradise -now years later you can too. This enterprise on Marlon's private island of Tetiaroa, a 12-islet atoll 30 miles northeast of Tahiti has been talked about since 2005 and now it's here...

Brando wasn't the first to fall in love with the islands its stunning beauty, tranquillity and almost mystical powers of rejuvenation first attracted Tahitian royalty, who chose this island for their summer retreat, above all the other scattered Tahitian islands. Brando, responding to the same island spirit, chose it for his personal sanctuary. He purchased the atoll in 1966. Tetiaroa atoll composed of 12 'islets' surrounded by a reef and accessed by an Air Tetiaroa private airplane.
'Brando cared deeply about this island and about the environment' says Philippe Brovelli, regional Vice President, The Brando. "The resort was inspired by Marlon Brando's original vision to create a venture of sustainable development. We believe we are stewards of Tetiaroa, and that we have the responsibility to treat it with the highest level of care and respect.'
