OUR TEAM

Simon Dunn
General Manager & Co-founder 

Simon started his Wellness Journey in 2018. Simon is an ex-tour professional golfer and a Sports Management graduate but was not looking after his health holistically. At 38, he was diagnosed with extreme hyper-tension and prescribed blood pressure medication for life. Simon also suffered with Asthma from birth and several undiagnosed allergies. Unsatisfied with his prognosis, Simon attended several wellness and detox retreats, achieving extraordinary results; he managed to reduce or stop most of his medications and physically got in better shape. These powerful experiences inspired him to qualify as a Yoga Instructor and establish the Lighthouse Retreat in Ras Al Khaimah.
