21-year-old Kapamilya actress Liza Soberano recently launched the second branch of her own wellness spa.
Last December 8, Liza officially opened “Hope Wellness Center” at Westgate Center in Alabang, Muntinlupa City.
It will be recalled that the actress first spa concept business is her “Hope Hand and Foot Wellness Spa” located in Tomas Morato, Quezon City, the model-actress opened this branch in December 2017.
But unlike the previous one that is more on hand and foot spa treatments, Hope Wellness Center offers a range of beauty services exclusive to the branch, they have massage, facial treatments, body scrubs, and even hair treatment.
In the grand opening of her Alabang branch, Liza shared with the members of the entertainment press, including PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) that she decided to put up a spa business because it’s really something that she’s passionate about, this made the business much more enjoyable and easier for her to manage.
Liza said, “The reason why I put up a wellness spa is because… I’m really passionate about spas. Of course, I’ve been working since I was twelve and parang pinaka-me time ko is whenever I go to the spa or like when I go to Belo.”
“I’ve always been the type of person who loves getting treated, you know what I mean. And so, I think it was easier for me to put up this business because I’m passionate about it and I really love it and it’s something that I really personally enjoy,” the beautiful actress added.
Sharing more details about her newly opened Hope Wellness Center, the actress who is known as a very hands-on person admitted that she decided to team up with business partners since she is also busy with her showbiz commitments.
Liza shares the responsibility of running her spa business with her Tita Joni Lyn Castillo-Pillarano and Aikee Ocampo, who works as the spa’s operations manager.
She told PEP.ph, “I would [say] that I am very hands-on as much as I can be… of course, I’m not always physically there to be taking care of my staff, of the branches itself. That’s why I have my partner, Ate Aikee, because she’s the operations manager and I trust her very much, and my Tita Joni as well.”
“They know what they’re doing and they’re taking care of each and every store. But I’m always like a text away. So whenever they have concerns, they actually text me because it’s more of a group effort and we always have to be on the same page.”
“We all have to be happy so if there’s something that I want and they don’t necessarily like, we all have to compromise to work together and really be happy with whatever we put out there.”
Spa-goers will definitely love the clean and floral scent when they entered Liza Soberano’s beautiful spa.
Here’s a look inside Hope Wellness Center:
Rose-colored curtains are used to separate each cubicle and also to provide visual privacy when occupied by their clients.
Meanwhile, this cozy area is reserved for nail services.
These big brown couches that will be used by their clients when they’re having their hands and feet pampered looks so soft and comfy.
For those who want to enjoy full privacy in their spa, they also offer a VIP room at an affordable price.
Moreover, the Kapamilya actress said that what makes her fulfilled as an entrepreneur is when they received positive feedbacks from their clients.
“I think the most rewarding thing is when you hear people say or when people post about Hope Wellness and they’re like, ‘Nawala lahat ng stress ko.’
“Because parang yun yung pinaka-target namin. We want to relieve people of everything that they’re going through.
“I mean, at this day and age, we’re all working really hard and lahat ng tao pagod, especially ngayong Christmas season.
“So everybody is very busy and we just want them to relax a little bit and remember to take care of themselves. Self-love is very important and that’s kind of our mantra here,” she explained.
When asked if she’s already thinking of coming up with her third branch, she said: “At the moment hindi pa, pero ang target ko, hopefully, in the future, if Hope Wellness becomes successful, we want to open in Makati or BGC. That way, it’s more in the middle.”
Liza also mentioned that she dreams to have branches outside Metro Manila, like in Cebu, Palawan, and Siargao.
