Thailand - Phuket has a new Accessible Hotel now!

Dec 14, 2006
Hi there

This is just a short email to inform you that our accessible hotel - 'Beautiful Sand Resort', is now open and accepting guests - both able-bodied and not-so-able-bodied.

We are located just 600 metres from Phuket International Airport, and the same distance from the beautiful NaiYang Beach.

This is a family hotel which has been constructed from the ground up so that ALL guests can use the facilities. We are very lucky that our location is completely flat ground, so there are no steps or steep slopes anywhere in our resort.

To ensure accessibility, we followed the constructional guidelines from the ADA (American Disability Association). So this means that all rooms have wide access doors, low-level light switches, (on cord-pulls for those with arthritus), and many more features.

One side of our swimming pool allows easy access for elderly or wheelchair users. We will be installing a hoist very soon, (when it clears Thai customs!).

This is a family hotel owned by myself (British satellite consultant living in Thailand for 4 years), and my lovely Thai wife. Most of the staff are family members from the Issan region of north-east Thailand. Guests who stay at our resort not only find the facilities to their liking - they also have a great time joining in with the local Issan entertainment!

You can find more details on our website at and/or There are photos on our website which show our facilities and lack of steps/slopes.

We would love to see your guests at our hotel. We also offer attractive net rates for travel agents.

Please do contact me if you need more information.
