looking for a wheelchair friendly hotel in Thailand?

although my husband is not a wheelchair user, he does have mobility problems. By chance I came across Baan Khaolak hotel in Khaolak, Thailand and am here at the moment. It is one of the best accessible hotels we have found in a long time. There are approx. 10 rooms that have huge bathrooms where a wheelchair can be wheeled into the shoiwer. In the shower there is a huge seat and all the usual grab rails. The balcony is large enough for a wheelchair . The whole resort is flat and the wide paths lead straight to the beach where a transfer to a sunbed is only a few inches. Although a wheellchair can be taken right to the edge of the pool, there are stairs with rails that lead into the pool. However, I feel sure I saw photos of a hoist in use somewhere on the web. The manager is an American,so communication for any questions is very good.

We also stayed at Ao NAng Villas , Ao Nang, Krabi, this was pretty good also, slopes everywhere and good bathroom but the letdown was a deep step from the room to the balcony. A very strange oversight. i thought

many thanks midnightbrownies, however I cannot seem to find the English translation of the websites.

hi, the rookies,

sorry but I hane only just come across your post of 21 Jan.

It is not the airlines themselves that org anise airport assistance, but the airport authority, so no matter which airline you use, the assistance will be the same. However, be aware, that in busy airports such as Heathrow or Gatwick you may have to wait a while if several planes are landing with many wheelchair users on board . Obviously, the number of people requiring assistance differs from day to day but I still don't know why there are often such a shortage of wheelchairs and staff when most travelers book well in advance.
