MANILA, Philippines – Jinkee Pacquiao, the wife of boxing hero Manny Pacquiao, opened her own hotel in General Santos City which, she said, took nearly a year to plan.

The 40-room Road Haus Hotel, located right across the Pacquiaos’ commercial complex, boasts of a modern design with single, double and family rooms. It also has a coffee shop and a function room.

Boxing photos of her husband, as well as her own glamour shots and portraits of the Pacquiao family, can be seen all over the hotel.

While members of the Pacquiao family were present at the hotel’s opening, the boxing champ could not attend the ribbon-cutting ceremonies as he is currently in Los Angeles to prepare for his upcoming fight against unbeaten Timothy Bradley Jr. on June 9 in Las Vegas.

Jinkee said she is scheduled to follow her husband in the United States later this month. -- Report from Dyan Castillejo, ABS-CBN News
