Now this is definitely cause for celebration–the Brando is the Best Resort in the World! Just what does it take to earn the moniker of “Best Resort in the World?” Look no further than the 2016 Conde Nast Traveler’s Readers’ Choice Award where the Brando was honored with the coveted title.
A 15-minute flight from Tahiti, the Brando is a rare jewel situated on French Polynesia’s breathtakingly beautiful private atoll of Tetiaroa. Just perusing the breathtaking photos, or reading the tremendous guest reviews online, and you’ll begin to understand how it has what all the fuss is about (although we believe the best way to understand is to experience it for yourself!).
The Brando was inspired by Marlon Brando’s original vision to embark on the concept of sustainable and responsible luxury. He also was passionate about fostering opportunities for visitors to get to know the natural surroundings, culture, and people of Tahiti. Incidentally, Brando fell in love with the Islands of Tahiti during his filming of Mutiny on the Bounty. Imagine the delight on his face were he present to see not only his dream come to fruition, but to have it named as The Best Resort in the World.
Further to Brando’s vision, the resort has embraced sustainable technology from its inception. Using seawater for air-conditioning, and solar energy as well as coconut oil as renewable energy sources (all of which are abundant in French Polynesia!). These efforts have been instrumental in The Brando’s recent LEED Platinum certification.
The all-inclusive resort offers 35 deluxe villas-each with its own private beach area, plunge pool, bicycles for exploring the island, and private outdoor eating area. There are also restaurants showcasing Polynesian and French cuisine, a luxurious Polynesian spa, a lagoon-view bar, resort pool (if you’re feeling social), organic garden, water sports, and an Ecostation. Perhaps one of the best features is that you can pack your wallet away and forget about it for your entire stay. All food (including room service) is included, as are all beverages, a spa treatment per day per villa, and a myriad of complimentary activities.
While not inexpensive (by anyone’s standards) the Brando is most certainly a bucket list-worthy destination. If you’re ready to check this one off the list, contact our Tahiti Travel Specialists or check out one of our Brando vacation packages today!
