Tetiaroa

Tetiaroa has always been a sacred place to Tahitians. That reverence and respect has kept the island a pristine example of how pure and beautiful a Polynesian island can be. The late actor, Marlon Brando, purchased the island and it is now home to the very luxurious, The Brando resort. Thankfully, preserving the natural purity of the island with a focus of being an “ecological model” for low-footprint tourism to co-exist with the natural wildlife and marine life was his plan from the beginning. Today, that mission is seen to by The Brando, in conjunction with the non-profit, Tetiaroa Society.

Overview

Marlon Brando fell under the spell of Tetiaroa while filming “Mutiny on the Bounty” and went on to buy the island.  Once a private getaway for Tahitian royalty, the island remains a haven for birds, sea turtles and all kinds of marine life. Marlon Brando’s island retreat is now home to one of the top resorts in the world – the magnificent private island resort, The Brando.

The Brando is a benchmark in all-inclusive luxury and has become widely known for its incredible surroundings and service. Our clients returning from The Brando rave about their experience and many start to plan a return trip right away!

Tetiaroa is working very hard to protect the island’s environment. They hope to be granted a special status of a natural reserve in order to regulate access and promote best practices for a sustainable and responsible approach of excursions. The Brando Resort was designed for luxury.  However, its development has always been very attentive to maintaining the ecology of their surroundings as it was built.

Tetiaroa shelters one of the largest colony of birds in Tahiti. White terns, brown boobies, frigate birds, red-tailed tropic birds and the amazing great crested birds – whose colony is the only one in the Windward Islands. All of these species coexist in Tetiaroa. Birds come to breed in this uninhabited haven, and their environment must be respected and preserved in every possible way.

The spa is beautiful, we had a great couples massage! ...the excursions are amazing & the best snorkeling channel around! Its worth every penny you spend and an experience of a life time!
