Situated on the stunningly beautiful Tetiaroa atoll 30 miles north of Tahiti, The Brando is French Polynesia’s premier private island resort. The all-inclusive retreat is comprised of 35 deluxe villas and one private residence, which is the first of four residence-style accommodations to be constructed over the next four years on The Brando’s primary motu of Onetahi.
What stands out the most, however, is The Brando’s steadfast commitment to conservation and sustainability, and its unrivaled ability to do so without forgoing the comforts and luxury of a five-star stay. A pioneer in the hospitality industry since opening in 2014, The Brando became the first property in French Polynesia to obtain LEED Platinum Certification, the highest U.S. Green Building Council environmental certification for sustainable building design and operations; reduced energy use by 80% as one of the first commercial resorts in the world to use deep Sea Water Air Conditioning; prioritized recycling efforts to account for 72% of the resort’s responsible waste management, in addition to other achievements.
Forbes Travel Guide is recognized for creating the original concept of Five-Star service, and The Brando is the latest addition to its illustrious annual Star Rating list.
