A Tour of the Pacquiao Family's Private Beach Resort in Sarangani
Jinkee Pacquiao calls it her "happy place."
While we had known that Jinkee Pacquiao's family owns a "private resort" of some kind, we never knew what they exactly meant by "resort." Like, does it have a slip-and-slide pool? Does it look like a hotel? Do they have fancy golf carts they use to get around? Well, we finally have answers to all those questions because Jinkee herself posted a tour of the resort on her YouTube channel. "I'm not bragging na meron kaming ganito ah... request niyo naman ito," she says in the introduction.
The sprawling resort consists of a number of villas where her side of the family and her husband, Manny’s side of the family, stay when they’re vacationing together. The complex was built seven years ago but still looks as if it was newly minted. Ahead, we rounded up all the mind-blowing details of the Pacquiao private resort:
The resort is set against a sweeping backdrop of the mountains and is filled with towering coconut trees.
The resort is dotted with pockets of lush greenery, while the front features a pond.
Jinkee says that the interiors follow a blue and white theme.
In the first of the two main villas, Jinkee’s old magazine covers and campaigns are displayed on the walls. "Makikita ko pa rin kung ano ang mga ginawa ko before."
Aaaand surprise! Jinkee also has on display a photo from one of her previous Preview shoots.
You know how some people have venues specifically for entertaining guests? Well, Jinkee has an entire dining hall for that and it looks like a mini home.
It’s replete with a billiards table, buffet table, tables and chairs, and couches that make for the perfect entertaining spot.
Here’s the poolside area of the resort. You know, it’s just your run-of-the-mill backyard infinity pool complete with chaise lounges and umbrellas. No biggie.
The cabana looks like it can seat up to four people.
Where the pool meets the shore.
Think that the dining hall was the only entertaining spot in the resort? Well, you’re wrong. It turns out that they also have a gazebo that—wait for it—floats in the middle of the sea.
A long bridge connects the shore to Jinkee’s "backyard gazebo" that stands on stilts in the sea.
Imagine having this as your view from home.
After Jinkee wrapped up her tour of her sprawling home, the video caps off with scenes of their family bonding, which, in the most Filipino way imaginable, entailed food and a lot of singing and dancing.
Check out Jinkee’s complete video below and behold the sights of the resort yourself!
