Reef Villa & Spa, Sri Lanka is a truly unique resort – a luxurious and intimate boutique hotel, with a focus on exceptional service and a visual appeal and detailing that speaks of a Raj heritage where romance and elegance meet in the lazy heat and beauty of this exotic retreat.
Our assignment was to design and build a website that fully conveyed the appeal and values of the venue, that was as unique as the resort itself and that allowed visitors to sample the atmosphere for themselves without leaving their home.
In designing this site we went through a number of concepts. Our client had strong ideas in terms of design, and a very clear brand to convey. The highly collaborative nature of the project was very important. We had, at times, to work on a ‘trial and error basis – as we tried concepts and they were rejected or evolved to eventually reach a final product. Our processes, though structured, are flexible and having a client who is flexible too is very important. Design changes can impact on budgets and delivery dates – but they are often essential to ensure the very best product, and our client worked with us to meet the project goals.
We are very proud of the finished product and the feedback has been extremely positive.
The website has been built using the Joomla CMS and we continue to provide support, training and hosting to ensure the smooth running and continual evolution of the Reef Villa website.
If you like the website, you’ll love the resort – we’d certainly recommend a visit!
