Clintons plan secret trip to Bermuda, says paper

The Clintons are reportedly headed to Bermuda this weekend.
The Clintons are reportedly headed to Bermuda this weekend.

(CNN) - President Obama isn't the only member of his administration planning an island getaway this month.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is slated for a four-day stay in Bermuda this weekend with husband Bill, the Bermuda Sun reports.

According to the paper, it's the first trip back to the island for the famous political couple since a stay in the summer of 1979, before the birth of daughter Chelsea.

The Clintons had even sought to stay in the same cottage they did three decades ago, but the venue was unable to meet their needs.

The Clintons will instead stay at Cambridge Beaches Resort and Spa, a facility where, according to the resort's Web site, room rates can run as high as nearly $2,000 a night.

The famous duo's plans could be hampered by the fast moving Hurricane Bill, a Category 3 storm that is currently on track to pass near the island at the end of the week.

Meanwhile, next week President Obama plans to take his family to Martha's Vineyard, the island off Massachusetts where the Clintons annually vacationed during their years in the White House. Chelsea Clinton is expected to be on the island this weekend

The State Department had no comment on reports of the trip, and a spokeswoman for the resort said there is no reservation for the Clintons this weekend.

"Even if they did [have a reservation], we wouldn't say," she said.

    This story is a plain invasion of the Clinton's privacy.

    is this a joke? first, bill doesn't need any lessons on sex (except how to stay faithful) and hillary looks like sex is the VERY LAST THING she would have any interest in! this has got all the marks of the fake dancing on the beach in bathing suits – they always seem to have to stage something when word gets out about the emptiness of their marriage. why don't they just divorce and give everybody a break!!!!!!!!

    So they're going on vacation to an adults only resort. So what? I did that several years ago. It was enjoyable.

    TMI!!!

    I hope they have a nice vacation. They have both earned it.

    I guess the improbability of Bill and Hillary spending a night together is rather newsworthy. It's just an unpleasant visual.

    This is personal, not news. Why is CNN covering it? especially the clothing optional info – - is that just to embarrass President Clinton? or to distract from President Obama's failure with healthcare reform? Let the Clintons alone and moveon (dot org?, lol).

    Hope they won't be there when Hurricane Bill (LOL) hits.

    How many thousands of dollars will we taxpayers be out so the great apologizer and her slime ball husband can take a few days off. The reality is she should be planning a visit to him in Leavenworth after the way the idiot lied to us.

    And, of course, the jerks in the media have to screw it up. You're all paparazzi.
