At The Brando, you will find an abundance of activities from bicycling, snorkeling and bird watching to diving and paddle boarding.



Here you are not just observing nature; you are in it. Put on a snorkeling mask and witness underwater life at a coral garden firsthand, encountering such marine life as sea turtles, rays, reef sharks and a dazzling array of tropical fish. Or you can explore the spectacular lagoon or other motus by Polynesian outrigger canoe, kayak, or paddleboard. Or simply swim at Mermaid Bay or relax on the beach or by the pool.



Visit the Library and Explorer Center, where you can read books about French Polynesia and attend lectures and demonstrations about Polynesian culture, history, and lifestyle. And the onsite research scientists will also be delighted to talk about their research and the amazing birds and marine life found on the atoll.

The resort’s first two restaurants showcase Polynesian-inspired dishes, East/West fusion and classic French cuisine, designed by the Executive Chef Cédrik Ollivault. You will enjoy the freshest of ingredients as our Chef will select fruits and vegetables naturally grown in the gardens and orchards, and will serve you delicious and fragrant papayas, bananas, lemons, herbs, cucumbers, zucchinis, tomatoes and eggplants. Most featured fish come from Polynesian waters.


Lastly, chef Kaito Nakamura awaits you at our newest restaurant, the Nami teppanyaki restaurant, for a journey to japanese flavors. The Brando commissioned the renowned Chef Kelvin Au-Ieong, chef and owner of the celebrated and revolutionary Invitation V, Vegan Bistro in Montreal, Quebec, to design an innovative and sophisticated vegan menu for The Brando. The menu is inspired by Chef Au-Ieong’s travels around the world and incorporates fresh vegetables handpicked from the resort’s own organic garden. He spent time at resort, expertly training The Brando’s chefs on each vegan offering. Bob’s Bar is a relaxed and casual setting on the beach for conversation and making friends. The bar is named for Marlon Brando’s factotum on film sets. At the end of many days, Brando and Bob would wind up at the bar for long talks and laughs. We have named the bar in honor of Bob and all others who have worked, and continue to work, anonymously to bring Brando’s visions to life.


The Beachcomber Café restaurant offers exceptional lagoon and ocean views, whether you decide to dine indoors or on the beach. Dishes include a varied menu of Polynesian-inspired dishes alongside classic French cuisine.
