THE TEAM

TOGETHER EVERYBODY ACHIEVES MORE

We could list our certificates, qualifications and degrees here. But… we’d rather not. And quite frankly, who reads those Bio’s, fattened up with white lies anyway? How about we tell you how It all began, how we fell in love head over heals and then created this totally outrageous and magical retreat, which more than 150 people have passed through by now? Feeling it? Then click here.

And if you just want to get to know us then read on. We believe that we are what we love, not what loves us. So we want to share the things we love. And if you love them too, we invite you to come and play with us.
