Everyone deserves a vacation every once in a while, regardless of who you are, where you live, or your physical abilities.
Finding an accessible hotel room used to be one of the biggest challenges for wheelchair users who love to travel.
But these days, there are lots of great accessible accommodation options in top destinations worldwide.
Fortunately, there are now many hotels around the world that keep the needs and wants of disabled travelers in mind.
Eria Resort in Maleme, Crete, Greece
While some hotels simply accommodate wheelchair users, other hotels truly embrace this type of traveler and design their hotel around accessibility.
One great example is the Eria Resort in the village of Maleme, which is by the Cretan Sea and beautiful olive groves.
There’s a wheelchair ramp that leads into the hotel’s swim pool, wheelchairs to rent for different purposes, and even planned excursions that are wheelchair friendly too.
Some of the excursions you can take here include the historic city of Chania, the Knossos Palace and archeological museum, the White Mountains and Samaria Gorge, and a tour of Kastéli, the Orthodox Academy of Crete, and the Goniá Monastery.
