After years of serving as a great leader of the United States, it's finally time for Barack Obama to pass on the administration to the newly-elected president, Donald Trump. As such, he, Michelle and their 2 daughters are now enjoying a much needed post-White House vacation.

But where did the former First Family go? According to recent reports, Barrack and his family were spotted lounging and having the best time at Necker Island, a private luxury island, owned by Sir Richard Branson, who has been spotted vacationing with the family, too.

So what exactly enticed the former POTUS to spend their family vacation in this resort? Located in the British Virgin Islands, this private resort was developed by British billionaire, Sir Richard Branson, who bought this place in 1978. He then spent 3 years and millions of cash developing this ultra, high-end resort-- a 74 acre of crystal clear waters and powdery white sands fit for a president (obviously).

For a whopping $78,000 a night (for a minimum of 1-week stay), you too can have a chance of spending some R&R. The price tag may be hefty, but it usually covers all the amenities and facilities in the resort. To prevent overcrowding, the island can only host a maximum 30 guests at a time.

The whole resort is managed by 100 employees that will cater to your every need. From countless water sports complete with high-class equipment, delicious food, and heavenly spa treatments, they got you.

Aside from the beach, guests can also opt to swim in the resort's two freshwater infinity pools, with stunning 360 views of the sea and fresh island air. Guests can also indulge in adrenaline-filled activities such as scuba diving, ziplining, and kite surfing.

It's not yet known whether how long the Obamas are going to stay at Necker Island, but one thing's for sure: After years of great leadership and serving the American people, the Obamas sure deserve to experience this one-of-a-kind getaway, only at Necker Island.
