The Brando Resort Introduces New Brando Residences

The Brando, a luxury retreat located on French Polynesia’s far-flung private island of Tetiaroa, is pleased to announce the official debut of its new Brando Residences. The resort recently opened the first of four residence-style accommodations, which will allow guests to enjoy a heightened level of exclusivity and privacy at one of the most beautiful and protected locations in the world.

The first Brando Residence opened this month timed with the resort’s five-year anniversary. The first residence accommodation will set the model for three additional residences which will be constructed over the next four years on The Brando’s primary motu of Onetahi, one of 12 motu (islets) ringing the Tetiaroa atoll.

The luxurious three-bedroom Brando Residence spans 3,000 square feet of interior space and is nestled on its own 1.25-acre plot of land fronted by a private white sand beach. Designed for optimal indoor-outdoor living, the residence also includes its own private swimming pool and large terrace, as well as luxurious interiors with spectacular views of the lagoon. The sprawling structure is crafted in authentic Polynesian style, with local tropical wood, coral walls and pandanus roofing.

Guests of the Brando Residence enjoy full access to all resort activities and amenities, including multiple restaurants, water sports, a luxurious Polynesian spa, lagoon-view bar, beach bar, fitness center, organic garden, library, pearl shop, boutique, and the resort’s Ecostation. Dedicated staff including chefs and butlers are also available upon request.

In keeping with The Brando’s commitment to sustainability, the Brando Residence exists in complete harmony with the environment and is constructed to the exacting standards which earned The Brando its LEED Platinum certification. All Brando Residences will preserve the natural biodiversity of Tetiaroa, while respecting Polynesian culture and achieving a zero-carbon footprint.

The Brando is more than a hotel. It is the lifelong vision of Marlon Brando carried out by Richard H. Bailey, CEO of Pacific Beachcomber. After meeting in 1999, Marlon tasked Richard with designing his dream: to create the world’s first resort with a near zero carbon emission. He envisioned an island where new and innovative technologies would allow hotel guests, locals and the global scientific community to learn and benefit from an autonomous luxury environment.

All-inclusive rates for the Brando Residence start from €15,000 ($16,817 USD) + taxes per night for up to six guests. The accommodation can also accommodate a maximum of two additional children ages 12-17 for €480 ($530 USD) + taxes per day, for a total of 8 guests.
