How to Get There

The Brando
Tetiaroa Private Island
Tetiaroa, French Polynesia



My sister & I went for a girls getaway & chose The Brando for the quiet, activities and just spoil ourselves.
Well they didn’t disappoint.
The grounds are amazing, villas comfortable, staff is quick, respectful of your privacy or were more than willing to laugh and just make you feel special.
The food was great, we booked a private cooking class with the head chef and was amazing, I asked how can you vary a menu for requests when on a remote island?
His response “ I ask them to tell me what they like to eat not just what they can’t eat as we have most ingredients and can accommodate most anything”. Chef invited us to the chefs table on our last evening, to see behind the scenes and eat what we let Chef create, didn’t disappoint!
The Tetiaroa Society does amazing tours of the island, discovering the flora, history of the island, ecology, wildlife and showed us pictures that The Brando Family shared with them that shows the evolution of the island and to hear the stories of how The Brando came to be was priceless.
Whale watching & lagoon tour we’re beautiful, TiTi/ Guide & Captains were fun & knowledge.
The staff, each and everyone always greeting you with a smile, hello or a wave while working, passing on bike/ cart paths, your attitude made the island feel homey.
Shout out to Air @ activity’s, M @ spa, Paul/ Dimitri @ Bob’s, Striker and the whole pool deck, Chef and the whole kitchen staff thank you for the laughs, smiles and just being you!
Best to you all????

Best trip ever!! Went off w/out a hitch!

We stayed in an villa with a pool looking over the beach and it was a dream come true! The accommodations are spotless and decorated beautifully. We were here on our honeymoon and the staff went the extra mile to make us feel special every step of the way. The food and restaurants are excellent. The paddle boarding, kayaking and snorkeling on the grounds is great! You ride bikes to get around and its fun and a great experience. They also have golf carts if you need a ride. The spa is beautiful, the excursions are amazing ! Its worth every penny you spend and an experience of a life time! The sunsets are the best you will ever see!

We used VENTURE TAHITI in Boca Raton, Florida to book our trip and it went off without a hitch. They did an excellent job and I highly recommend them!

We look forward to going back!

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.
