Tetiaroa, located 30 miles north of Tahiti, was once the island of choice for Tahitian royalty on vacation. It was later chosen as an island of personal sanctuary for acting royalty, Marlon Brando.
Marlon Brando had an vision to preserve sanctuaries for future generations and raise awareness of the fragility of our environment.
The Marlon Brando Estate, which owns the Polynesian atoll of Tetiaroa, opened the luxury eco-resort, The Brando, in 2014. The resort with its white-sand beaches is frequented by sea turtles and exotic birds. In efforts to create a sustainable and eco-friendly environment, The Brando features sea water air-conditioning and solar and coconut oil energy.
The island is also home to an environmental research station, Tetiaroa Society, which through education, conservation and creative science which, in line with Marlon Brando’s vision, aims to “better humanity’s relationship with the planet and help facilitate a harmonious future for generations to come”.
