A dream that became reality

The Brando has fulfilled its mission. The resort proves that

the absolute height of luxury can go hand in hand with

sustainability. The Brando brings the past and the future

together in a place where time seemingly ceases to exist

and everything dissolves into an eternal spirit. Those who

visit The Brando return from it both enriched and purified.

Marlon’s dream became a reality here. Maybe he himself

would have preferred things a little less luxurious and

grand, but his vision and his wishes have been respected

and that is the essence. It is a shame that he was not able

to view the final result, but I have the feeling that his soul

will forever be present on Tetiaroa.
