COVID-19 advisory notice

Tetiaroa, March 19th, 2020:

Dear Guests and Partners,

While The Brando’s main goal has always been to deliver the best experience and service possible, we are currently facing an unprecedented event with the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic.

We have been closely monitoring the situation from the start, and while no case has been detected nor suspected in Tetiaroa to this date, the health and safety of all remains our top priority. The latest measures taken by the government of French Polynesia in collaboration with the High Commission of the French Republic have led to the compulsory 14-day isolation of any new person entering French Polynesia and the closure of our borders to non-residents, the strict limitation of domestic and international flights, and the compulsory repatriation of all non-residents to their home country.
Given these circumstances and in a solidary effort to curb the spread of the virus and to invite all colleagues and partners to respect the social distancing measures, we came to the difficult yet pragmatic conclusion to temporarily close the resort.

For now, the resort will be closed to guests between March 23rd and April 30th, 2020, a date which may be reassessed if necessary. During this time, some maintenance functions will take place at the resort in order to be able to reopen the resort within the shortest possible time frame, and our team will be working on new projects to keep improving the guest experience.

The Brando’s reservation office, based in Tahiti, will remain open 7/7. Upcoming guests willing to modify their reservation are invited to contact the reservation team for more information:

We invite guests who originally intended to stay at the resort by April 30th 2020 to postpone their stay in our beautiful islands, so as to enjoy under better circumstances the relaxing experience they were longing for.

This is an extraordinary measure which we feel necessary as we will all need to prioritize health and safety over anything else until the situation gets back to normal.

In the meantime, we invite all guests and partners to refer to the following official websites for the latest updated information regarding international travel to French Polynesia:

We would like to thank you for your understanding and continuous support. More information will be shared about the situation on this page.

Best regards,


Silvio Bion
General Manager
