    Socially Distanced and Totally Connected

    Marlon Brando taught us a thing or two about social distancing long before it became a necessity in curbing a global pandemic. Like the kings and queens of Tahiti before him, the legendary actor came to the island of Tetiaroa for privacy and rejuvenation.

    We make the bold claim that while you are at The Brando Tetiaroa Private Island, distancing is effortless, and connection comes naturally. Even the buildings on our enchanting island are socially distanced! Your pied-à-terre in Tetiaroa is separated from that of your nearest neighbor by a dense stand of coconut and miki miki trees.

    You could be tempted to never leave your villa. A private plunge pool, your own stretch of beach, lots of outdoor living space, 24-hour in-room dining, extraordinary views from every room, a glorious outdoor bathtub and a state-of-the-art media room, all conspire to keep you at home.

    But leave you will, of course. You’ll be drawn out - by the siren song of the lagoon, perhaps, or the urge to explore the islet on your bicycle, or by the simple fact that your all-inclusive package comes with a daily excursion and spa treatment that you will not want to miss. Finally, with the natural spaciousness of the island and a little help from our ingenious team, we are pleased to be able to offer that rarest of experiences in these times - genuine island conviviality.
