Samui Blue Orchid is a brand new luxury pool villa resort in Koh Samui, which I was very excited to design the website. This is a sister resort, situated in the hills and needed some special attention to its private villas and amenities.
Since the logo and brand were already established by another designer, I worked on creating a tone for the website that was clean and minimal so that the message was of utmost importance. The resort relied heavily on images so I wanted to showcase images throughout the site, reminding users that this was a resort you can get away from it all and enjoy the reprieve of nature. I also created unique icons for the amenities based on the logo “wave” motif.
After designing the site, I developed a brand new theme using WordPress as the Content Management System.
View behind the making of the site.
Our company recently opened up a new luxury villa resort; our problem was we were quite unsure of how we would approach our new website including its design, framework, and we were faced with the task of doing justice to a luxury product we are providing. After initial sourcing, we were fortunately introduced to Sam and her company. From the outset she conducted extensive research and information gathering about our business and put together a clear proposal that stood out far away above the competition. Immediately, we felt at ease that we had developer who is extremely professional, proactive and importantly a developer who is able to understand what the client wants but adda her own unique ideas.
We were certainly not disappointed. Throughout the project Sam provided us with regular step-by-step updates, clear information and direction to the project. Sam kept the project language simple for us making the process so straight-forward. Any questions we had were responded to very quickly; she gave her honest opinion and reasoning on what would work and what would not and provided suggestions that are now a key part of our website and ultimately enhanced it.
The end result was a beautiful, professional, modern, slick-looking website and delivered ahead of schedule! Her work is of the highest calibre and is an excellent communicator. Myself and our company highly recommend Sam and we will certainly be coming to Sam for any future endeavours. Many thanks again!!
