If you have ever visited Boracay and availed a boat trip from one of the locals, pretty sure they will tell you about this Santorini-inspired beach resort that it is owned by the Philippine boxing champ, Manny Pacquiao.
In 2006, Manny together with his friend, businessman Crisostomo "Cris" Aquino purchased the cove in the seaside mountain terrain in Diniwid beach in Boracay.
The resort was then developed and named Boracay West Cove.
In April 2008, Manny and his wife Jinkee visited their resort after his victorious fight against Juan Manuel Marquez. Manny's business partner, Cris quipped, "Diyan nila nabuo si Queen Elizabeth!" The couple's youngest daughter who was born in Los Angeles, California.
If you are in Boracay station 1, 2, or 3, you can access the resort by riding a tricycle or by boat.
The cove is surrounded by lush greens and crystal clear waters. Guests can relax and watch stunning view of the beach on the cabanas made from nipa.
Free round-trip speedboat transfers to and from Caticlan Jetty port are also available for guests.
West Cove is equipped with comfortable lounges where one can take a nap, read, have a massage, or simply relax while enjoying the cool sea breeze.
Of course, Manny and Jinkee have their own private room in the resort. The resort have 12 private villas but they are planning to add 18 more.
Manny's room got a huge glass window that perfectly gives the view of Boracay's sunset and sunrise.
