“The Polynesian people have a contribution to make to the rest of the world. Tahiti does not have the reputation it enjoys without reason. Tahiti is not pie in the sky, it is real. It is not a myth so much as a way of looking at life … a life that can be described as chiffon in the wind.” – Marlon Brando
Marlon Brando loved to share, and he had big dreams. The Brando is one of his shared dreams brought to life. He wanted the world to know and love Polynesia and its people the way he did. The exquisite Polynesian atoll of Tetiaroa has always been a privileged retreat – a place of utter beauty, peace and tranquility, first for Tahitian royalty as recorded by Bougainville, Cook, Bligh, and others, more recently for Marlon and his family. From July 2014 this special island paradise will be open for privileged visitors. The Brando offers a feast for the senses, incomparable luxury of accommodations and appointments, delectable fine dining, sumptuous spa experiences, and personalized service tailored to a guests every whim.
Each private oasis on Motu Onetahi, the resort islet of Tetiaroa, is nestled among white sands, shielded from view by a screen of waving coconut palms. Here, guests will enjoy views of lush vegetation and the impossibly blue waters of the lagoon without fear of prying eyes, as well as the freedom to do exactly as they please throughout their stay.
A comfortable electric cart delivers each guest to their private retreat—a secluded fare. Each lucky guest will pass beneath a covered porch and stroll the boardwalk leading to their door, relishing the sense of peaceful solitude.
From each villa’s gracious gardens and exquisite scenery to the timbered walls of each luxury fare, each guest will feel close to nature—without sacrificing comfort. The 22 fare (villas) scattered along West Turtle Beach and 13 along South Mermaid Bay have been carefully designed to reflect the Polynesian lifestyle and traditions, with soft, cozy furnishings, deluxe amenities including a private pool, and windows as big as doors that let visitors indulge in the sun, the breeze, and lagoon views. And while enjoying these deluxe appointments, experience the sensation of living life undisturbed, without distractions or interference from others. There is also the satisfaction of knowing that everything that surrounds has been designed around clean, renewable energy sources, to protect this island paradise for generations to come.
IslandsEscapes will share more information as it becomes available and looks forward to welcoming guests to this very special Island. In the mean time, here’s a video just released about the Brando, here, or watch it below.
