It looks like Barack Obama is now enjoying his life as the former President of the United States in French Polynesia.

The 55-year-old political figure will be staying in the said country for a month-long vacation. The former president has been on the island of Tetiaroa since March 15. He is said to be staying at the late Marlon Brando's luxurious resort Brando. It has been said that he is busy doing his much-awaited memoir in the said place.

However, it seems his wife Michelle Obama is not with him all the time. The local news outlet TNTV reported that the former First Lady of the United States has just joined her husband and arrived on the island over the weekend.

The publication also spotted the couple taking a boat ride to the island of Moorea to enjoy a day swimming and other water activities. Aside from their own craft, there were also accompanied by two other vessels that said to be their bodyguards.

In the snaps obtained by the network, Michelle has seen paddleboarding while Barack was enjoying the water in the secluded lagoon. Moreover, People reported that the latter was also spotted snorkeling on the outer island of Fakarava last week.

"True to his reputation, he was very relaxed," a source said. The first African-American president was also very generous to allow anyone who asked for selfies. But, their entourage requested that their photos should be for private use only.

Moreover, Marlon's Brando resort has an eco-friendly environment as it is being powered by solar energy and coconut oil. Its 35 villas are all air-conditioned by the sea water system and each has its own private beach and pool.

In fact, it is even voted as the Best Resort in the World by Condé Nast Traveler in 2016. The resort's rate is ranging from $2,750 to $13,000 per night.
