Marlon Brando's Private Island Retreat, Now a Resort



In the 1960s, Marlon Brando bought the string of islets in French Polynesia known as Tetiaroa and made it his home. The Brando, an exclusive luxury resort accessible only by plane, is the late actor's personal slice of paradise.

The 35-villa, all-inclusive retreat, located 30 miles northeast of the island of Tahiti, was purchased by “The Godfather” actor in 1966 after filming “Mutiny on the Bounty,” a film that recounts the voyage of Captain James Cook through the Polynesian islands.

Tetiaroa — historically a sanctuary for local Polynesians — became a private vacation home for Brando’s family and, in 1999, five years before passing away, Brando partnered with Richard Bailey, CEO of Pacific Beachcomber, in transforming it into a self-sustaining, carbon-neutral island resort.
Surrounded by crystal-clear waters and white-sandy beaches, The Brando is the ultimate escape for affluent travelers, who arrive via the resort’s own air strip only by private aircraft.

One-, two- and three-bedroom villas — starting at a generous 1,033 square feet — are staggered throughout the atoll for further privacy, and are integrated within the natural landscape with a fluid indoor/outdoor design. Villa details include vaulted ceilings, adjoining outdoor bathtubs and private 107-square-foot plunge pools.

The Spa Arii Vahine, surrounded by 22,000 square feet of lush landscape, will offer holistic treatments in line with ancient Polynesian traditions in private treatment villas around a pond. A spa suite will be built high within the palm trees.

The Brando will feature two restaurants — Beachcomber Cafe and Les Mutines — that highlight Polynesian, East/West fusion and classic French cuisine, with menus helmed by Guy Martin of 2-star Michelin Le Grand Vefour in Paris.

Most ingredients will come directly from their own organic garden. Additionally, there will be an open-air Te Manu Bar and Bob’s Bar (named after Brando’s factotum on film sets) directly on the beach.
Activities will include bicycling, snorkeling in the coral gardens and lagoon, diving, paddle boarding, guided hikes, tennis, aqua gym, yoga and canoeing.

The resort will also offer Polynesian themed arts and culture like dance lessons, handicrafts and ukulele lessons.

The Brando will be almost fully “green” with its commitment to eco practices. The carbon-neutral resort used local, renewable materials in construction, a deep seawater air-condition system and solar-energy technologies for renewable energy with the hopes to be the first resort in the world to obtain LEED Platinum certification.

“Marlon Brando dreamed of building a “university” on Tetiaroa that would educate others about the many facets of this jewel,” says Silvio Bion, general manager of The Brando. “In pursuit of his dream, we have established a research station on the island where scientists and researchers from around the world can gather not only to preserve Tetiaroa but also to help tropical islands everywhere find their own path to sustainable development.”
