Check out the private French Polynesian island Obama is about to vacation on for a month

Less than two months since leaving office, former President Barack Obama is doing an excellent job at giving us destination envy.

First there was the Caribbean kitesurfing adventure with Richard Branson, and now he’s off to another paradise on Earth: French Polynesia.

On Wednesday, Obama landed in Tahiti, according to local reports, on his way to luxury resort The Brando (named in honor of the late actor Marlon Brando) on the private atoll of Tetiaroa.

“Tetiaroa is beautiful beyond my capacity to describe,” Brando said of the spot. “One could say that Tetiaroa is the tincture of the South Seas.”

The resort, which was designed “to reflect Polynesian lifestyles and culture,” has 35 villas on white-sand beaches with sea turtles and exotic birds. Nightly rates start at more than $2,000.

Besides enjoying the scenery, it isn’t clear what Obama will be doing during his stay on the island, or if his family will be joining him at some point. However, there is speculation that he could be working on his memoirs, for which he and Michelle Obama recently scored about $60 million.
