Sharon Rooney, Spa Director

Working history

I trained in UK as a beauty therapist and began my career as a spa therapist in Springs Hydro (now Champneys), then the wonderful Turnberry Hotel in Scotland which was also Espa’s first property, and where the brand was born.  After gaining experience in UK, I decided to travel and worked as a spa therapist trainer which, after gaining experience, lead to becoming Spa Manager in Europe, Cairo and the Middle East.

Why Lucknam Park

It really is a special place, the grounds and spa facilities are stunning but most importantly we have an amazing spa team who make work a pleasure… most of the time!

What inspired you to work in hospitality

I love spa treatments and know the positive effect good spa therapy can have on people – guests feel better after a spa treatment. The industry is perfect for  travelling so spa allowed me to travel extensively and spend time in some great locations.

When not at Lucknam Park Hotel, how do you spend your time

I still love travelling but don’t do this as much as I use to.

Favourite drink

It has to be an ice cold Pink Gin with lots of Bitters.
