Barack Obama arrived Wednesday in French Polynesia where he will spend a month at a luxury resort frequented by Hollywood stars, according to local TV channel Tahiti Nui TV.

A press office official in Tahiti who was not authorized to be named told The Associated Press on Friday that the former USA president landed Thursday in Tahiti then took a plane on to a private island.

His first stop was Tahiti before going on to Marlon Brando's privately owned retreat, Tetiaroa atoll.

Obama has checked into the eco-friendly Brando resort, whose villas boast their own plunge pools and cost between 2,000 euros ($2,150) and 12,300 euros per night.

AFP said it is unclear what Obama plans on doing during his stay in French Polynesia, a French territory comprised of more than 100 islands, or if his family will ultimately join him there.
