Oceania—Resorts With Wellness Program

French Polynesia


The Brando

The Brando’s vision is a culturally rich, sustainable, environmentally protective luxury destination, set on a remote private island off Tahiti, once the home of Marlon Brando, who envisioned this island as a conservationists’ paradise. There is a research facility on property, where scientists study fish, coral and other wildlife. The spa is an oasis of wellness and healing, based on traditional Tahitian treatment modalities such as the Taurumi massage, which features natural indigenous oil blends. thebrando.com

Intercontinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa

Imagine a place where the sky is always clear, the sea is bright turquoise with glints of sunlight and the sandy beaches are white as pearls. The Deep Ocean Spa is one of the first thalassotherapy spas built in the South Pacific, where wellness possibilities—including a traditional Tahitian massage—are endless. thalasso.intercontinental.com
