Important notes:

  • There are no public toilets on the ground floor. The toilets in the basement can be reached by lift, but there are a few steps between the corridor and the toilets. Guests in wheelchairs visiting La Mer or Panorama will need to take the lift to their room to use the toilet.
  • Although all rooms are accessible by lift and there are no doorsteps, the bathrooms may be challenging for wheelchair users. They may be a little too narrow, with no special grab rails, and small thresholds at the shower doors may make manoeuvring difficult. Note that the showers are generally not designed for wheelchair access and therefore may not be large enough.
