Barack Obama London, July 27 (ANI): Michelle Obama is set to go for a holiday in the Spanish resort of Marbella on the Costa del Sol along with her daughter Sasha, nine.

The duo will spend four days in the seaside resort, staying at the five star Villa Padierna, which has a reputation as the best hotel in Spain, reports the Telegraph.

President Barack Obama will not be going, nor would the couple’s elder daughter Malia, 12, who is going to an American summer camp.

Websites of Spain’s national newspapers claimed the entire family would be coming, but the White House quickly denied that the president, who is beset with problems at home, would be leaving the country for his holiday.

However, a day later an official statement released by the White House read: “The First Lady will travel to Spain next week for a private, mother-daughter trip with longtime family friends. President Obama will not be joining this trip.”

Spanish media reported that the trip would take place between August 4 to 8 and that Spain’s King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia had invited Mrs Obama to visit them at their summer palace on the island of Majorca. (ANI)
