Accessibility by Reka

As a broadly supported cooperative society, Reka functions according to the non-profit principle. We do not distribute any profits but reinvest profits in the cooperative which also includes people with disabilities. With a view to future generations, we create added value for the benefit of all, hand-in-hand with our partners, customers and staff members. We are committed to the environment as well as to economically and socially disadvantaged sections of society. Do you need a wheelchair or a walking aid? Or are you reliant on barrier-free accessibility due to other dispositions? Do you spend your holidays with disabled family members and friends or with your personal carer?  In the popular Reka Holiday Villages and at the Reka Holiday Resort at Golfo del Sole in Tuscany, we also offer just the right obstacle-free or limited obstacle-free holiday accommodation for you.
Discover our wide selection of barrier-free offers, tested by the Swiss Tourism Association and recognized by Pro Infirmis!

Reka lives for a more Inclusive Society

Our motto is: everyone should be able to take part fully and on equal terms in society, regardless of their social or ethnic backgrounds, their age, gender or individual capabilities. We see variety and colour as opportunities, and inclusion as a logical step in evolution towards a society which functions as a community. We actively promote exchange and see our Reka Holiday Villages as meeting places open to everyone.

Reka is committed in the long term 

At least 50% of our Holiday Resorts in Switzerland will be barrier-free by 2022. With each of our renovations and new building projects we aim to achieve this goal. We are constantly eliminating physical obstacles in our housing, access routes and pathways, playgrounds and other areas. We are making our accommodation wheelchair and walking-aid accessible to guarantee mobility. Travel planning is facilitated in the run-up to holidays as digital accessibility is also one of our priorities. With our website, in the medium term, we are targeting Label A Certification for «Basic Accessibility Requirements, Top Priority».

Who is ‘Accessibility by Reka’s target group?

Barrier-free with the JST electric wheelchair

Reka is extending the concept of barrier-free holidays. Half of its Swiss Holiday Resorts should be barrier-free by the middle term. Whenever we undertake renovations and new buildings, we make a point of avoiding physical obstacles with a view to keeping access free for people with walking aids and wheelchairs. We also endeavour to promote mobility in the holiday facilities’ surrounding areas. In partnership with experienced organizations – such as, for example, the Cerebral Foundation – Reka is financing and implementing a groundbreaking project: in selected locations all-terrain electric wheelchairs are available for rent. These powerful ‘trailblazers’ are easy to handle and enable guests to undertake extended excursions into the natural environment, alone or accompanied. They are not only for Reka guests, but are publicly available via a share system. On-site or online you’ll find attractive route suggestions for discovery tours. You can also book your JST Mountaindrive wheelchair in advance quite simply online.

With our partners’ support, we would like to play a leading role in the development of accessibility in tourism and in doing so eliminate much more than just physical barriers.
