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

My family (my husband, boys- age 11 and 14, and I) returned last week from a week spent at The Brando. We stayed in a 2 BR villa. This place is first-class all the way. The villas are spotless. The maid staff does an amazing job each day taking care of the villas. The beach bars and restaurants are great.... More

Breathless, unreal, paradise, must go so save up, you'll understand why Marlon Brando loved this island so much. When I visited bird island the hotel's construction wasn't finish. Now it is and it is absolutely unreal ! This is like a 5 diamond resort, so not really available for all travelers, but it you have the budget, it would be... More

Simply amazing!!! My husband and I recently went to The Brando after an 11 day Cruise on the Paul Gauguin. From the curbside at Faa’a Airport in Papeete to The Brando on Tetiaroa and back we were pampered all the way. Air Tetiaroa has a very cool lounge were we waited for the small airplane to take us to Tetiaroa.... More

Someone once said that trips are not only made magical by one's surroundings, but by the people you meet when there. This is quite an understatement when speaking about The Brando and the kind, beautiful, well educated, intuitive, resourceful staff.

If I was given a few months to live, I'd sell the house, max out the credit cards and go directly to The Brando. Words can't do justice to this earthly paradise! Anything, anytime is at your disposal. One afternoon the water in our private plunge pool was a tad warm so we considered ordering a wheelbarrow of ice. No... More
