Fans are still celebrating boxing champ Manny Pacquiao’s win against Lucas Mathysse last Sunday, July 15. His knockout of the Argentinian boxer proves that the senator still has it, and this dispels further notions of him retiring.

But even if he does eventually retire, he can relax in style in his sprawling, three-storey tropical-modern mansion in Forbes Park, Makati. With its water features, outdoor/indoor pool, and designer furniture, we can’t help but compare it to a high-end resort.

A top shot from the balcony shows the vastness of the garden. Seen in the middle is the water feature, which is a koi pond. The white furniture outdoor set is from Kenneth Cobonpue’s Oasis collection, which is made out of weatherproof woven polyethylene on aluminum. You can buy original Cobonpue pieces at his showroom at The Residences at Greenbelt, Makati City.

The Pacquiao mansion is a three-storey home with a wood and glass façade punctuated with natural stone details and wraparound balconies that overlook the garden and pool areas. Seen in this outdoor lounging space are the Kenneth Cobonpue’s popular Croissant sofa mixed with sinewy Manolo armchairs, also by the award-winning designer.

The immense tropical pool is the highlight of the outdoor area. Luxury travertine stone surrounds the pool. You can get this type of travertine from Kaufman Stone.


As seen in this post from her Instagram account, Jinkee Pacquiao gingerly strolls along the travertine steps of the pool.

Deck


This pool is designed to be half-outdoor and half-indoor, so it can be used rain or shine. The pool discreetly reflects the ceiling design and architecture of the house. Perched on the wooden deck at right is a woven raffia sofa set; get a similar one by Milo Naval at OMO Furniture, located at LRI Design Plaza, 210 N. Garcia St., Makati City.

Right next to the deck is the anteroom, which overlooks the indoor portion of the pool.

Nighttime lighting

Outdoor lighting and LEDs illuminate the Boston ferns, bromeliads, miagos bushes, and yucca plantings in the garden.
