The Brando

The Brando

Get away from it all on a tropical island paradise sitting in a sparkling lagoon. Share pristine beaches and crystal-clear sea with manta rays and sea turtles, watch tropical birds in the lush, verdant vegetation and immerse yourself in Polynesian culture and lifestyle. The Brando offers a warm island welcome and outstanding hospitality that will leave you wanting more.

Exquisite guest accommodation

The villa accommodation at The Brando has been carefully designed to reflect the serenity of the beautiful surroundings. Shady verandahs, high ceilings and subtle natural materials offer a tranquil retreat where you can relax to the sound of the gently lapping waves on the beach only a stone’s throw away. Soak in the al fresco bathtubs hidden behind cane screens or laze by the side of your private pool with a good book. Either way you will be surrounded by heavenly luxury.

Inspired dining

Get a true taste of Polynesian flavour in one of two fabulous restaurants. Classic French and east-west fusion dishes are also on offer, creatively presented by passionate chefs. The Beachcomber Café has spectacular views over the lagoon, while Les Mutines is an intimate and elegant dining experience. When dinner is over, retreat to Te Manu Bar for breathtaking ocean views and sunsets, and for the ultimate in privacy, take the canopy walkway to one of the magical tree-top seating areas.

Make the most of your time

Every tropical paradise should include outstanding amenities and The Brando certainly does this. The sensational spa has tantalising therapies and well-being treatments, exciting water-sports of every description are waiting to be experienced by the adventurous, and the local culture and history can be discovered in The Brando’s Library and Explorer Centre. The abundance of marine life will fascinate you as you snorkel in the clear waters of the lagoon, watching the underwater world come to life in vibrant technicolour.

The Brando offers so much more than a beach holiday. Here you can follow your dreams of an island escape while enjoying luxury facilities second to none.
