Sustainable Lodges For Conscientious Travelers

The Brando is a stunning resort on the private French Polynesian atoll of Tetiaroa. The Brando achieved LEED platinum certification in 2016. It is  pioneering model of sustainable technology with seawater air conditioning and energy from the sun and coconut oil.

An organic garden and honey farm serves The Brando's restaurants and provides the benefits of local sourcing. Protection of marine life is core to the resort's mission, and there is an eco station for scientific research that guests can visit.

Naturalist guides at the eco station teach guests about the barrier reef ecosystems. The island is a major sea turtle nesting site and a local nonprofit foundation studies island ecosystems. The Brando offers carefree luxury in the midst of pristine nature.
