Beyoncé celebrated her B’Day in the sweetest way.

A source tells PEOPLE that the superstar, 42, took a break from her Renaissance World Tour to enjoy a “beautiful family vacation to celebrate her birthday.”

The Grammy winner — who is married to JAY-Z, 53, and is Mom to daughter Blue Ivy, 11, and twins, daughter Rumi and son Sir, 6, with the rapper — vacationed in French Polynesia at The Brando Resort.

“It was a nice break for Beyoncé,” the source tells PEOPLE. “The tour has been intense. She needed to recharge for a few days.”

The insider adds that the family “rented several private villas” and spent a great deal of quality time together. They say, “They enjoyed the beach, had family dinners and engaged in several resort activities. Everyone had the best time.”

The “Break My Soul” artist reportedly traveled with her family right after her birthday concert in Los Angeles at SoFi Stadium on Sept. 4. They returned in time for her to resume the North American leg of her tour in Vancouver on Sept. 11.

TMZ was first to report the news.

Queen Bey’s 42nd birthday festivities kicked off on stage during the final of her three Renaissance shows in L.A. At the show, Kendrick Lamar joined the hitmaker to perform their collaboration “AMERICAN HAS A PROBLEM (REMIX)” live for the first time, and she was also serenaded by Diana Ross, who stepped out to sing her “Happy Birthday."

In footage captured by fans, the “Formation” singer looked delighted and emotional to be surprised by the music industry veteran, 79.

"Thank you so much, you are so amazing,” the performer told Ross on the stage as they held hands. “This is the legendary Diana Ross! There would be no me without you and thank you so much for all of your sacrifice and your beauty and your grace. Thank you for opening doors for me. Thank you so much.”

Beyoncé thanked her again with a heartfelt tribute on Instagram. “Thank you to the incomparable Ms. Diana Ross,” she wrote along in the caption, before referencing her “Alien Superstar” lyrics. “The 1 of 1, the number 1, the only one. Thank you from the depths of me, my Queen. 🐝.”

The party continued off stage, as well. The "CUFF IT" artist also posted an Instagram carousel of her backstage celebration, sharing photos with her parents Mathew and Tina Knowles and husband JAY-Z, and even the disco ball-themed cake and balloons she was treated to.

The Renaissance World Tour sees the performer touring for the first time since 2018’s On the Run II Tour, which was co-headlined by her husband. The show, which kicked off with a string of European dates in May, is her first solo headlining tour since 2016’s Formation World Tour.

The epic, two-and-a-half-hour show began its North American leg in July. The record-breaking tour continues through September before wrapping on Oct. 1 in Kansas City, Missouri.
