Former President Barack Obama has arrived in French Polynesia for a month-long trip to the South Pacific islands.
Obama is staying at an eco-friendly luxury resort near the tourist island of Tahiti, citing local TV channel Tahiti Nui TV.
AFP said Obama was at actor Marlon Brando’s privately owned retreat Tetiaroa atoll. Brando bought the resort in the 1960s and its villas boast their own plunge pools and cost at least $2,150 a night.
Obama arrived in Papeete, French Polynesia’s capital city, earlier Thursday morning. AFP said it is unclear what Obama plans on doing during his stay in French Polynesia, a French territory comprised of more than 100 islands, or if his family will ultimately join him there. Although it is being speculated that Obama is using the alone time to begin working on his memoir.
Obama made an unannounced trip to Hawaii on Monday, his second there since visits for Christmas and New Years. The former president was born in the Aloha state in 1961 and was reportedly spotted at a favorite restaurant there earlier this week.
