We just returned from a 6-night stay at The Brando and can confirm the reviews of others – this place is extraordinary and clearly deserving of a 5 star rating. We have been fortunate enough to stay at many of the top rated resorts and the Brando clearly belongs on the top of that list. We could go on and... More

I have traveled the World and tried many a place, but this place has set the Bar really high. I honestly can say there was not one flaw there. Crazy as it sounds but I cannot think of one. In fact, the more I think about it, it was perfect. Now given, I do understand the people that say that... More

Ah, the Braaaannnndoooooo… I like to say it slowly to better savor the memories they evoke. I recommend that you go there only at the end of your trip because nothing else will compare favorably afterwards. You board a small twin propeller plane in Tahiti and 15 minutes later you are in Tetiaroa, where you will be welcomed by smiling... More

I almost don't even want to write a review... because then you will know about this place. I wish The Brando could stay a secret and never, ever, change. It is an absolute gem. If you're even considering this special French Polynesian gem, you must be looking for a trip that will blow your god damn mind. If the Brando... More

This truly was the trip of a life time! It was absolute paradise. It was the prettiest island, most gorgeous ocean and the kindest people on staff. No attitude there and they totally could have it because the resort is top shelf and extremely special. We were supposed to stay a week and extended it to 10 days because we... More

If your bucket list includes the goal of spending time on a remote, South Pacific Island, The Brando is the place to go for a taste of this life style in a very civilized way. We have vacationed in French Polynesia for the past three summers and stayed on seven different islands. Without question, The Brando sets the standard for... More

This was a magical resort indeed. The island itself was beyond gorgeous. The room beautiful, spacious and exquisitely decorated. The hospitality friendly and accommodating. My husband and I had a fabulous time at the Brando and for the most part it lived up to all expectations. I so wish I could give 5 stars unfortunately for a resort of this... More

There is nothing to be said about how outstanding this place is that hasn't already been said in the prior reviews. The color of the lagoon, the luxurious accomodations, the secluded feeling of the private beach entrance entrance, the attentive -yet discreet - staff, everything about The Brando will make you say "Wow!" It is the perfect blend of privacy... More

Although a long way from the UK, our visit to The Brando for 14 nights in May 2015 is amongst the very best holidays we have ever had. The two stand-out highlights are the Tetiaroa atoll - a beautiful, un-spoilt group of coral islands - and the hotel staff. The staff, while unobtrusive, were excellent, friendly and often anticipated our... More
