Fish and seafood from the local fish, meats are carefully selected. As for breads, pastries and other sweets, everything is prepared on site.  As a guest of The Brando, dine anytime, day or night, anywhere: at the restaurant, villa, pool, on the beach…

Room Service
With a such and incredible villa – why leave?  You can enjoy a meal whenever you want, 24 hours a day, at your villa —either indoors, on your private deck alongside your pool, or on the beach in front of your villa.  Available 24/24, you can enjoy a meal in the villa, on your deck or private beach.

On the second floor from 16:00, this outdoor bar reveals a spectacular view of the lagoon, with the distance, the islands of Tahiti and Moorea. Whether from the main lounge with billiard or from one of its lounges perched in the coconut, it is the perfect place to watch the spectacular sunsets of the Pacific, cocktail specially created for The Brando in your hand…

Bob’s Bar
Casual place, feet in the sand, this bar takes its name in honor of Marlon Brando’s factotum on film sets, Bob, with whom he liked to meet at the end of long days of filming to chat and joke around with a drink.
On the same principle as the original built by Marlon, this bar typically Polynesian building, welcomes you throughout the day.
At your service, the Bob’s Bar team will serve your refreshments under Fare Potee, in one of the outdoor seating area, at pool or beach.



The Varua Polynesian Spa is a natural haven of serenity nestled on the shores of a soothing pond in the heart of Motu Onetahi.

The spa includes private massage and treatment villas around the pond, steam baths, a tea and relaxation lounge overlooking the pond, a yoga shelter and a special spa suite for couples high up in the palm trees.

The Brando is a unique luxury resort on French Polynesia’s breathtakingly beautiful private island of Tetiaroa – an atoll composed of a dozen small islands surrounding a sparkling lagoon 30 miles northeast of Tahiti. The Brando offers carefree luxury in the midst of pristine nature. With access to the island by private plane, the resort features 35 villas on white-sand beaches frequented by sea turtles, manta rays and exotic birds. The resort was designed to reflect Polynesian lifestyles and culture. Your 1, 2 or 3 bedroom suite provides you the utmost of luxury in an eco-friendly setting. The Brando is a fully all inclusive resort experience that includes all your meals, beverages, accommodations and even select excursions and spa treatments.

Carl's Tip

The most luxurious and exclusive resort in all of French Polynesia even though the minimum stay may be 3 nights, you won’t want to leave – plan at least 5 nights and learn why Marlon Brando fell in love with Tahiti. Being one of the few Travel Consultants in the world who has visited this unique retreat I am well connected with the resort General Manager, Sales Manager and Chef Concierge to make sure every little detail has been taken care of for you special visit.
