Pacific Beachcomber launched its latest project — The Brando, in July 2014. The Brando is a unique luxury resort on French Polynesia’s breathtakingly beautiful private island of Tetiaroa – an atoll composed of a dozen small islands surrounding a sparkling lagoon 30 miles northeast of Tahiti. The Brando offers carefree luxury in the midst of pristine nature. With access to the island by private plane, the resort features 35 villas on white-sand beaches frequented by sea turtles, manta rays and exotic birds. The resort was designed to reflect Polynesian lifestyles and culture.. Tetiaroa is also home to Tetiaroa Society. Pacific Beachcomber, a key partner in The Brando, has entrusted the operation of the Ecostation to Tetiaroa Society, a nonprofit scientific and cultural organization dedicated to its mission to inspire sustainable interdependence through education, conservation, and creative science.
