Inside the Pacquiao Family's Multi-Million Private Beach Resort in Sarangani
Jinkee Pacquiao, wife of senator and boxing champion Manny Pacquiao, gave her YouTube and Instagram followers an inside look at her happy place: the family's multi-million-peso private beach resort in Sarangani.
She begins the virtual tour with this message: "Ngayon, nandito tayo sa aming private resort. Ipapakita ko sa inyo yung first private resort namin ng buong family. Sa lahat ng nagtatanong, ito na yun. I'm not bragging for anything, na meron kaming ganito. Request niyo naman ito so itu-tour ko kayo dito."
Located along Gumasa Beach in the municipality of Glan, this piece of paradise was built seven years ago.
It has a main resthouse and two villas, all in all with 14 bedrooms to accommodate both the Jamora and Pacquiao clans.
A spacious garden with a fish pond lead to the living quarters. The color palettes of the resthouse were Jinkee's choice of simple blue and white. To give it homey feel, she opted for wooden furniture, flooring and accents.
The master bedroom is roomy but not as huge and grand as the couple's bedrooms in their mansions in Makati City and General Santos City. Just outside the master bedroom is a lounge area, where Jinkee spends her time reading the Bible.
The first villa is for her family, the Jamoras, while the second villa is where her husband's side of the family stays.
Jinkee shares, "Naglagay talaga kami ng dalawang villas para sa Jamora and for the Pacquiaos kasi kapag andito sina Mommy [Dionesia Pacquiao], kapatid ni Manny, kapatid ko, family ko, may kanya-kanyang room sila na puwede sila mag-stay."
Adorning the wall of the first villa's corridor are Jinkee's framed magazine covers and endorsement photos.
Jinkee says each room is spacious enough to accommodate two guests: "Tama lang siya for the couples, mga ganyan. Cute lang yung mga rooms."
The gazebo by the sea is where the family usually gathers for breakfast and dinner.
As described by Jinkee, "Bare lang siya, so dining table na lang natira. Kasi dati may sofa, may dining table. Kinuha lang namin. Kapag wala kami dito, kinuha lang namin, nilalagay namin sa bulwagan."
According to Jinkee, she and Manny prefer to have their dinner by the beach. The private resort also has a hall where they entertain their guests. Of course, since the kids love to swim, the resort also has its own pool.
