The most luxurious fully accessible hotels from around the world

The most luxurious fully accessible hotels from around the world | Accessible Tourism | Scoop.it
While it's a topic still hotly debated all over the globe, there's no doubting that the world is becoming more and more accessible with every passing day. In fact, for those with limited mobility, there's no need to bypass luxury for convenience! Whether it's buying the best wheelchair accessible vehicles money can buy, or splurging on a holiday, the array of choices are growing every day. In fact, now more than ever, you can enjoy the epitome of luxury at some of the best 5-star hotels and resorts all over with the added benefit of full accessibility – and we've pulled together some of the best for you to choose from! St. Regis Bal Harbor Resort, Miami, Florida The King Evelthon Beach Hotel and Resort in Paphos has all of your standard accessibility options, and more. Accessible rooms come with roll-in showers and hand rails, and some stunning beach views to boot. Included too are air conditioning and heating, an LCD TV, shaver point, safe, mini bar and tea and coffee facilities to name just a few, so you really do have a bit of everything! You can access most of the hotel in a wheelchair, and in the case that you can't access a point, the staff are always on hand and more than happy to help you. There's a buffet restaurant, indoor and outdoor pools, a kid's splash pool with slides, sports facilities, a hairdressing salon and there's even a doctors service upon request, for that extra peace of mind. Titanic Beach And Resort, Lara Beach, Antalya, Turkey This uniquely-shaped hotel is perfect for those looking for accessibility. There are rooms that have been adapted for disabled guests, with the usual wheel-in showers and hand rails available, but the luxury spreads so much further. 65% of the guest rooms in the hotel have an ocean view, and when you venture out to the grounds, you'll come across plenty of opportunities for relaxation. Whether you 'chill' by the pool, take a wander along well-kept gardens or take advantage of one of the many bars this hotel has to offer, there's always something to do to keep yourself well-looked after!
