Escape with us to one of our favourite destinations, Tahiti, and stay at the ultimate luxury resort - The Brando, located on the breathtaking private island of Tetiaroa in the French Polynesia. Named after one of our favourites, Hollywood legend Marlon Brando, and located on his private atoll, this lush eco-resort was envisioned by the Oscar-winning actor many years before it finally opened. Its sophisticated style stems from its socially conscious aims of providing modern day luxury in an environmentally sensitive and sustainable way, something we’re passionate about at Lumira.
With 100% of its electricity powered by solar panels and a coconut oil power station, The Brando sets a new world standard being carbon neutral and close to self-sustainable. 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. Nothing beats the beautiful private villas with open-air bathtubs, while we love to take a stroll around the lush gardens surrounding the swimming pool. With an environmental research station close by, guest programs allow you to explore the flora and fauna unique to the island with marine biologists who double as fun and friendly tour guides.
Don’t get us started on the food - local produce is sourced for the Michelin starred restaurants within the resort. Try the vegan menu option at Les Mutinés fine dining restaurant inspired by Chef Au-Ieong’s travels around the world, incorporating fresh vegetables handpicked from the resort’s own organic garden.
WE LOVE: Snorkeling through the clear waters, breakfast in bed upon request, the tea and relaxation lounge overlooking the pond, snuggling up with our significant others in a spa suite high up in the palm trees, cycling around the paths of the island and kayaking above the coral gardens.
