Nestled just 30 miles north of Tahiti, the private atoll of Tetiaroa is a delicate paradise with a rich history and a strong spirit. With its white sand beaches, lush wildlife, and sparkling lagoon, Tetiaroa is an exclusive retreat fit for royalty. In fact, Tetiaroa once served as a prized retreat for Tahitian royalty, including Tahitian chiefs and kings.
Tetiaroa is a part of the Society Islands of French Polynesia and is considered an extension of the Arue commune. Fittingly, the island name is a Polynesian word meaning “stands apart” or “at a distance.” The inner lagoon, which is only three miles wide, is completely enclosed and is protected by 13 surrounding coral islets.
The Brando is the exclusive resort of Tetiaroa.
