Top Notch Luxury!!!!
Reviewed 3 days ago

Absolute heaven!! The Brando is definitely worth a stay, it’s top luxury!! It’s obviously very expensive but totally worth it! The flight over is quick (about 30 mins) and easy. I was greeted warmly by the manager and staff and was taken on a tour of the resort. I was dropped off at my room which was a huge suite with a beautiful private pool and beach area. The room was massive with a bedroom, sitting area and office room. The bathroom was spectacular too!! Very large and has an outdoor tub! Everything was super clean and gorgeous. I did several of the included activities and they were all fun and well led by nice and knowledgeable staff members. The food was all so so so so good. I ate so much. Everything was delicious. The island is approximately 2 miles around and I ran around it several times, it’s a very beautiful path!! There is nothing the Brando can’t do!! Definitely stay here everyone!!

You've spoilt us forever!

A once in a lifetime experience for sure! The short hop on the 6-seater plane from Tahiti to Tetiaroa was just the beginning of a few days of pure luxury. The beachside villas are beautifully designed and pure luxury and very private too. We felt like we were the only ones on island. The service had just the right balance attentiveness without being in your face or OTT. The food was outstanding. Bicycles provided were nice touch and a lovely way to explore the island further. Great snorkeling too and we spent a couple of days out on the lagoon. Tahiti is expensive, but given that all food as well as the spa is included, the Brand is great value too. Couldn't fault the Brando at all - the only negative is that you've possibly ruined all our subsequent holidays as it's going to be hard finding anything quite as good! Thanks for an amazing few days that we will never forget.

Heaven on Earth

Coming to Brando was living a dream. I had longingly read articles about the resort and followed their social media for over 2 years before having the courage to splurge on a trip for my 50th birthday. I’m so glad I did. It was all I had read about and more ... a memory I will cherish for a lifetime.

Our villa on Mermaid Bay meant we were steps away from paddle boarding, kayaking ... or sitting at Bob’s Bar. Fantastic!

The “Ultimate Tour” and the snorkeling tour are not to be missed! Small group tours led by naturalists who ensure the overall experiences are outstanding.

Everyone was unbelievably nice and accommodating. When I asked the concierge for a schedule of the listed activities (hat making, learning instruments, etc) he replied by asking what I was interested in doing and what time would be convenient. I told him I was interested in the paero dying and that 4:30 after my massage would be perfect. He told me they would have it all set up at that time. When I arrived at the activities area at 4:30 following an outstanding massage, two activities personnel were waiting with everything ready for me to begin. Other guests saw me doing this and joined in which made this even more fun!

We spent most mornings going snorkeling or doing one of the other excursions. Afternoons were for bike riding around the island, spa, activities, enjoying our private pool or sitting at Bob’s Bar enjoying a drink and a seared tuna club sandwich while chatting with bartenders and other guests. Blissful!

Evening dinners and cocktails were 5 star, as were the (included) bottles of wine they recommended and poured to accompany our meals.

I thought this would be a once in a lifetime trip, but once is simply not enough. We will be back!!!

Almost Perfect

From arrival to departure, this place is special. The Villa is spectacular and almost flawless. I would prefer Air conditioning in bathroom. It was hot during our visit. I would also suggest cushions for the chaise lounge chairs. Other than that it is great in every way. The food was very good. Much better than the Four Seasons Bora Bora. We enjoyed the tours. We had a great experience in the spa. The signature 3 hour treatment was one of the best we have ever done. The staff is warm and genuine. They are eager to assist. My only criticism would be the early turn down. On two occasions we returned home from the spa and housekeeping had already come. I would think with so few rooms they could see what time you are going to dinner and come then. Overall,It is a very unique and special property. You will not be disappointed. I do not think the photos do it justice.

Absolutely the best

The most incredible resort in over 30 years of visiting the South Pacific. The actor Marvin Brando purchased this piece of Paradise in the 1960’s. He donated the island to a conservation group upon his death. I don’t have the words to describe the result. The managers have done an incredible job of creating a very small and well staffed resort.
