The Brando, French Polynesia

Calling The Brando a luxury resort really doesn’t do this paradise justice. Found on the stunning private island of Tetiaroa in French Polynesia, the resort was created to honour Polynesian lifestyles and cultures. Preserving the natural beauty of the area is the emphasis here, and guests will find it impossible not to relax and unwind as they stroll on the perfect beaches and enjoy the sea turtles, manta rays and exotic birds that frequent the island.

Available only by private plane, The Brando is made up of thirty five one, two or three bedroom private villas. Whichever villa you choose, you’re guaranteed to stay in an idyllic getaway that’s decorated to the highest standard throughout. The one bedroom villa’s media room means you can catch up on those movies you’ve been meaning to watch all year and you can cool off from the midday sun in your very own private plunge pool.

The three bedroom villas, perfect for families, contain an extended deck that leads right out onto the beach, so you can shade from the sun underneath the island’s palm trees. You’ll also be treated to a 236sq foot private infinity pool, which gives the illusion of leading right out into the ocean.
