The Obamas are vacationing in the Caribbean, after leaving the Oval Office.
On Friday, former U.S. President Barack Obama and wife Michelle, made their way to the British Virgin Islands after the inauguration of Donald Trump.
Obama had long said he promised his wife that, he would take her on a special holiday after leaving office.
From leaving Washington, the Obamas spent 3 days in Palm Springs, California, at the home of the US ambassador to Spain, James Costos, and his interior designer husband Michael S. Smith, who has been the White House decorator since 2008.
On Monday evening, the Obamas traveled aboard founder of Virgin Music Group, Sir Richard Branson’s private jet, to the British Virgin Islands.
While at BVI’s Lettsome International Airport, the Obamas graciously stopped to chat and take pictures with airport staff, before heading to Branson’s luxury retreat on the Caribbean island of Necker.
Sir Richard Branson lives on Necker Island – which is 74 acres of land mass, surrounded by coral reefs and white sandy beaches. His Necker Island luxury resort hosts exclusive guests and events. With 14 bedrooms and a staff of 100 persons, it rents for U.S. $80,000 per night.
It is not known if the Obama’s paid for their stay, however Branson has made his support for them and his disdain for Donald Trump well known.
