Aside from her showbiz commitments, Liza Soberano is also busy growing her first business venture. The 21-year-old actress officially opened the second branch of Hope Wellness Center at Westgate Center in Alabang, Muntinlupa City. Here, Liza's Hope Wellness Center expands the range of available services by offering massage and facial treatments that are exclusive to the branch.
"The reason why I put up a wellness spa is because I'm really passionate about spas. I've been working since I was 12 years old and parang pinaka-me time ko is whenever I go to the spa or like when I go to Belo," Liza says in an interview. "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."
HOPE WELLNESS ALABANG
Liza has always been hands-on with everything she does. But when it comes to her business ventures, she shares the responsibility of running them with her partners, Joni Lyn Castillo-Pillarano and Aikee Ocampo. "I would [say] that I am very hands-on as much as I can be but 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."
The Alone/Together star said, "I'm really excited to try our Spa Signature Ritual treatment (P3500) because it's really the complete package. It has the body scrub, soak, massage, and hair treatment."
Liza and Joni have also included a list of body and face wellness services exclusive to their Alabang branch. These include the Lavender Body Wrap (P2099), the Flower Detox Wrap (P2499), and the Rose Body Wrap (P2200).
For their facial wellness services, they have Skin Particular (P1200), Sacred Face Nature (P1200), Serene Facial (P1200), and Pro-Defination Lift and Countour (P1500).

LIZA SOBERANO: THE ENTREPRENEUR
Liza said her fulfillment as an entrepreneur comes from seeing the satisfaction of 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," she explains.
"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," Liza concludes.
