Barack Obama is staying on Richard Branson's Necker Island
Billionaire businessman Richard Branson allowed the Obamas to stay on his private Caribbean Island- Necker.
A private jet took the 44th president and wife Michelle, along with their children, late on Monday night before they arrived in the British Virgin Islands.
One-Hundred staff serve families on Necker who pay £64,000 per night for the luxurious stay.
Virgin Limited Edition – which manages the luxury holiday end of Sir Richard’s empire – told the Telegraph they could not disclose whether the former first family had paid or not.
Mr Obama had promised Michelle a special getaway – and has clearly made good on his word.
The family spent three nights in Palm Springs at the home of the US ambassador to Spain, James Costos, and his interior designer husband Michael Smith, before the trip to Necker.
Mr Branson has made no secret of his feelings for Obama’s successor Donald Trump.

In October Sir Richard wrote a scathing account of his meeting with the new president.
He said: “Some years ago, Mr Trump invited me to lunch for a one-to-one meeting at his apartment in Manhattan.
“Even before the starters arrived he began telling me about how he had asked a number of people for help after his latest bankruptcy and how five of them were unwilling to help. He told me he was going to spend the rest of his life destroying these five people.
“He didn’t speak about anything else and I found it very bizarre. I told him I didn’t think it was the best way of spending his life. I said it was going to eat him up, and do more damage to him than them.
"There must be more constructive ways to spend the rest of your life. (Hopefully my advice didn’t lead to him running for President!)
“I was baffled why he had invited me to lunch solely to tell me this. For a moment, I even wondered if he was going to ask me for financial help.

“I left the lunch feeling disturbed and saddened by what I’d heard.
“What concerns me most, based upon my personal experiences with Donald Trump, is his vindictive streak, which could be so dangerous if he got into the White House.
“For somebody who is running to be the leader of the free world to be so wrapped up in himself, rather than concerned with global issues, is very worrying.”
Previous guests of Necker Island include Nelson Mandela, Diana Princess of Wales, Mariah Carey and Robert De Niro.
