Cabo Villas Beach Resort & Spa
Cabo Villas Beach Resort & Spa’s website design reflects all of the various luxury amenities of this independent resort located in Baja California Sur, Mexico. The property was searching for a marketing partner to boost online visibility, generate more bookings, and reinvent the Cabo Villas brand. Vizergy created an independent website that showcases the beauty of the property and surrounding area through large background photos, easy-to-navigate and informative pages, impressive media gallery, hotel video, virtual tour, and an overall feeling of tranquility using a soft and subdued color scheme, all developed to engage visitors. Much of their success is due to the aesthetically pleasing design that sells the property and area.
“Cabo Villas Beach Resort & Spa is proud and honored to be named a recipient of the Interactive Media Awards competition,” said Sergio Baños, General Manager of Cabo Villas Beach Resort & Spa. “Cabo is a truly beautiful destination and we wanted to convey the Cabo experience through our website.”
“This award is the culmination of months of effort, dedication and teamwork between the Cabo Villas and Vizergy staffs throughout the planning, creative process and implementation of our site,” said Grischa Alcaraz, Director of Sales and Marketing of Cabo Villas.
Inn of Chicago
The Inn of Chicago is a boutique hotel in a prime location on Michigan Ave, otherwise known as the Magnificent Mile. It’s as historic as downtown Chicago, but with the perks of contemporary amenities and features. Vizergy designed a sleek site that allows guests to easily navigate the site and book their stay no matter what page of the website they are on, by using the fixed reservation search box feature. The website includes large imagery that builds an emotional connection for travel shoppers by showcasing the charm of downtown Chicago and the modern amenities the property has to offer. They have received over 140,000 visits to the website year-to-date, 36% of which were customers being delivered to the booking engine.
