On the 10th anniversary of The Godfather actor’s death, Marlon Brando's private island hotel is opening at the exquisite Polynesian atoll of Tetiaroa.
If you dream a holiday like “The Godfather”, the address is The Brando.
Located 30 miles north of Tahiti, The Brando will open on this breathtakingly beautiful private atoll in July 2014 as a luxury resort. With access provided by private plane, the resort offers carefree luxury in the midst of pristine nature. The all-inclusive resort features 35 deluxe villas each with its own private beach area and plunge pool, restaurants showcasing Polynesian and French cuisine, a luxurious Polynesian spa, a lagoon-view bar, beach bar, pool, organic garden, library, boutique and water sports. The Brando is unique in concept and scope, combining environmental purity, luxury and Polynesian charm into an enriching experience.
Tetiaroa is completely private with its own airfield. Two or more roundtrip charter flights a day are planned or will be organized aboard one of two 8-passenger Britten Norman airplanes (turboprop twin-engine), duration of approximately 20 minutes, between a private terminal at Tahiti’s Faa’a International Airport and Motu Onetahi. After landing at Motu Onetahi on Tetiaroa, guests will be greeted by a representative of The Brando and escorted by electric vehicle to their private villa.
The 22 villas along West Turtle Beach and 13 along South Mermaid Bay have been carefully designed to reflect the Polynesian lifestyle and traditions, with luxurious furnishings, deluxe amenities including a private plunge pool, and windows as big as doors that let guests indulge in the sun, the breeze, and lagoon views. The villa’s timbered walls and native gardens are surrounded by exquisite scenery. The resort has been designed around clean, renewable energy sources, to protect this island paradise for generations to come.
The award-winning cuisine of Guy Martin of the Michelin two star restaurant Le Grand Véfour in Paris is featured in The Brando’s dining venues and in-room dining.
A limited number of luxury homes will be available on a choice of stretch of beach.
Brando’s eight surviving children united to build the luxury resort, which his friends and family believe he would have wanted for Tetiaroa, where he would visit to escape media attention.
