How to Get There

Tetiaroa Private Island
Tetiaroa, French Polynesia


Fabulous property with a few hiccups

We stayed 2 nights at the very expensive all-inclusive Brando resort. The property is manicured jungle with beautifully designed buildings. We chose the sunset side because sunset is at 5:30. The ocean was pleasant for a cooling dip unless you choose your very private plunge pool. The formal restaurant was excellent in atmosphere and food. The newer Japanese bar was good. The service was impeccable all the way around. Spa is beautiful and a restful setting.
Only 2 issues which we discussed with management and hope they address. The first is the bed platform which sticks out 4” from the mattress causing us to seriously stub our toes. Reception told us they had gotten that complaint frequently, so why not do something about it! The second was a big fly problem to the point where we couldn’t sit outside our villa, especially after lunching on our deck. It’s a beautiful beachfront setting but not usable. They are doing a good job of eliminating mosquitos but are inundated with flies.
We used a helicopter to return to the Papeete airport thinking we would have more beach time-wrong. Spent too much time in the “departure” lounge. The helicopter left 10 minutes before the same plane. There was nothing to see between the 2 islands. Save your money on that idea.
All in all I think they are doing a great job and found it very private and restful- perfect combination.

Exceeds your expectations

First place we have visited that my wife said we have to return. She is tough to please and she couldn’t have been happier with her experience at the Brando.
Food was superb. We are lacto ovo vegetarians and everyone made sure that our needs met.
Rooms are perfect....modern but fit into environment. Fairly private and totally comfortable.
Tours are fascinating, and loved the kayaking.
Spa setting was incredible.
The staff made everything better, they really seem too care.
One small issue was a communication problem about a delay on their private flight.

Already planning return.

Peace on earth maybe too quite

Well I rarely get excited to come to a place but this one I as. We arrived via helicopter which is a must as it saves a ton of time after a long flight. The rooms and staff are over the top. The beach and layout Is a small paradise. Would I go back not so fast. If your a rock star and looking for virtually no other guests this is the spot. You rarely see and meet anyone. The one point I was disappointed in was the food. For me food is an important if not more then anything else. I found all the restaurants to be at best fair. I also question some of the quality of food as I thought by paying a higher price on the meat and fish would provide a better experience but it didn’t. If you want total peace with little other people interaction with average food you found your place.
