Everybody enjoys a luxurious experience once in a while, from the high-intensity sports massage to alleviate the agony of those aching muscles and joints to a manicure to make your hands really stand out. However, there are few spa experiences which are accessible for wheelchair or mobility-conscious users.
Spas have become massively more popular over the past few years, particularly as hotels have added spa experiences onto their offerings later on, meaning that their spa and massage rooms have been added as an afterthought. Users of disability baths have often been overlooked when it comes to spa experiences, so we thought we’d list a few of the most disability-friendly luxurious weekends in the country!
The Very Best Spa Experiences For Mobility-Conscious Users
Senspa, New Forest, Hampshire
The Senspa is one of the few places in the country to offer a fantastic experience for the wheelchair user. From the very start of your weekend, you’ll be given a tour of the ground floor room, which gives you access to all of the facilities without ever requiring that you navigate stairs or required to enter a lift.
Your room will have wide entrances, easily-reachable grab rails and plenty of space to move around. If you book in advance, the staff will be certain to have someone on hand to help, which can cover the relocation of treatments to ground floor rooms as well as operating the hoist in place above the swimming pool. Your treatment time will also be extended, to ensure that you don’t feel rushed during your relaxing or invigorating treatments.
The spa even features a designated staff member who has been trained in lifting, to ensure that you won’t miss out on any of the fabulous treatments on offer.
Celtic Manor, Wales
Celtic Manor has adapted all facilities to accommodate wheelchairs, from spa treatments to the pool itself. In fact, they have even developed their own gym to incorporate disabled equipment that you can use.
Your room will even have the option of vibrating pillows, to ensure that you can feel fully revived and refreshed! For those who are also hard of hearing, they also offer hearing induction loops for most of their services.
The Warner Hotels
Adult only hotels spread across the country, these locations have all adapted their facilities to ensure complete wheelchair access and allow the mobility-conscious user to enjoy the peace, romance and tranquillity of spas across the UK.
If you inform them about your disability when booking, they will ensure that you receive a room which has been fitted with handrails, ample space, lower mirrors and sinks, disability baths, wider doorways and extra space around the bed.
Unfortunately, few of these hotels have had the space to include disabled access changing rooms, but with their focus on disability access across every other aspect of their property, it might not be too long before they make their final changes!
