Realising your individual SPACE experience requires a dedicated team. Meet some of the people whose unique skills achieve perfection on a daily basis.
Ali Crook, Chief Sun
Ali is possibly the most organized, wonderful Event Manager known to man, she keeps us all in check and basically runs the show… She is our Chief Sun and you can tell she loves what she does because we all love her.
Ali used to work on Sir Richard Branson’s private retreat, Necker Island as Head of Department for Guest Services. One year down the road Ali was promoted to Planning and Events Manager, which suited her down to the ground! During her three years in this position she coordinated countless major events that included intimate celebrations for small groups, to weddings and corporate events, such as the Necker Cup, numbering up to 200 guests.
Ali’s guilty pleasure is undoubtedly her world-renowned champagne obsession! When she is not busy organizing everyone else’s lives she enjoys traveling, gourmet cooking, swimming, sailing and skiing.
Colleen Harte, founder, Lucy Annabella
Colleen Harte is a passionate Complementary Therapist and Clinical Aromatherapist who has been an organic health enthusiast ever since she realised that what we put on our body is as important as what we put in it. Colleen lives by the ethos that our health is paramount to our happiness.
Committed to delivering functional therapeutic aromatherapy to us all, Colleen travelled the globe in her quest for knowledge and the best ingredients from dedicated farmers in order to create her intelligent luxury brand, Lucy Annabella.
Colleen named her company after the pet title given to her by her Grandfather. She felt something bestowed on her with such love was so appropriate for her precious gift to you.
We are incredibly lucky to have Colleen and her team at SPACE, their six signature massages are heaven and luckily for you, you can have one everyday!
Gareth Zachary, Executive Chef
Gareth Zachary (Gaz) is a cheeky chap and hugely passionate about food (especially the healthy type!). He has travelled the world researching different culinary delights from different cultures and has brought that experience into his work today. Gaz has worked his magic in some incredible kitchens, including four years at Sir Richard Branson’s Necker Island. Before Sir Richard whisked him away to paradise, he spent three years at La Manoir aux Quat Saison (two Michelin stars, five AA rosettes). Gaz has also worked on super yachts, private homes and some incredible top restaurants around the world. I think what we’re saying is… he knows his stuff!
Gaz is a big lad, but don’t be fooled by his rugby player type physique… he is a water sports guy! He loves to kite surf and be in the water as much as he can, but when he’s not splashing about in his free time, he’ll be on his bike cycling for hours or cooking, of course! He is now living in LA and loving it.
Gaz has too many guilty pleasures to list, so you can ask him about them yourself!
