An extraordinary world forged by the elements, preserved by coral reefs
Tetiaroa emerges from the vastness of the ocean as an untouched oasis whose beauty defies description. Encircled by a coral reef, the atoll’s 12 motus hold back the vast blue beyond, cultivating a sanctuary of peace within.
Amidst this tranquility, a renowned resort lives in harmony with the natural world, where Polynesian guides lead you on a journey through their ancestral lands. The connection here is profound and genuine, beyond description.
Where naturalist guides share their nature, history and wildlife
Warm waters invite discovery, while meandering paths call to be explored, and scheduled excursions lead to the atoll’s edge for experiences encompassing life on land, in the air and below the surface. It is here where one meets
the coral reef and the unique wildlife and flora home to these lands. The island’s custodians, the Tetiaroa Society guides, narrate the rich tapestry of Polynesian heritage, creating a profound link with the surroundings.
And Polynesians celebrate their culture
On Tetiaroa, the essence of Polynesia permeates every activity, from crafting art out of palm fronds to the gentle strum of a ukulele, to the creation of colorful pareus. Here, the islanders’ musical celebrations are an invitation to delve into the community’s heartbeat, moving beyond spectatorship to shared experience.
Each unfolding moment, each forged connection, ushers in an embrace from the world of Polynesian life and culture, as seamless as being welcomed into an extended family.
A place where a world-class resort is the launch-point for profound experiences
Every design and detail of The Brando has been carefully planned to tread lightly. Buildings gently elevated amongst the surrounding flora, mindfully built into, not on top of, the delicate ecosystem. And sustainability is at the heart of both the Polynesian culture and the life of the resort.
With ample space to stretch out, dine, relax, rejuvenate, or find moments to just be, this special place is more than a launch-point to amazing experiences, it’s what the Polynesian’s call ‘fare’, or simply, home.
And sustainability and conservation are a way of life
Tetiaroa breathes sustainability as naturally as the rain, sun and wind upon its fenua (land). With careful practice and consideration, everything is renewed—glass is returned to sand, buildings cool with seawater, and solar panels soak in the day to light paths at night.
This atoll shines as a beacon in sustainable luxury travel, globally acclaimed for its dedication and research. The paramount goal is the atoll’s preservation, ensuring its remarkable ecosystem thrives for future generations to witness and cherish.
Our extraordinary world is closer than you think
