Luxury resort to open on Marlon Brando's private island
Marlon Brando's private island resort, The Brando, is scheduled to open on July 1 and set to serve as an all-inclusive retreat located on the picturesque island of Tetiaroa, located 30 miles North East of Tahiti.
The island was purchased by The Wild One actor in 1966 after filming Mutiny on the Bounty. Historically known as a haven for local Polynesians, the secluded area became a private vacation home for Brando's family in 1999.
Today, Richard Bailey — one of Brando's business partners, who is also the CEO of Pacific Beachcomber — has transformed the island into a self-sustaining, eco-friendly island resort.
Surrounded by crystal-clear waters and sandy beaches, The Brando will be the ultimate getaway spot. The villas range from one to three bedrooms and integrate within the natural landscape with a fluid indoor/outdoor design, featuring vaulted ceilings, adjoining outdoor bathtubs and private plunge pools.
Among the variety of activities — such as snorkeling, paddle boarding, hikes, tennis, yoga and canoeing — The Brando will hold two restaurants, Beachcomber Café and Les Mutines, serving up food that highlights Polynesian, East/West fusion and classic French cuisine. The menus were even created by Guy Martin of the Michelin starred Le Grand Vefour in Paris.
