Mykonos Ammos Hotel
A case study
Mykonos Ammos Hotel case study
DESIGNED FOR DESKTOP, TABLET & MOBILEA beautiful Hotel located at Ornos Beach in Mykonos, the Mykonos Ammos Beach Hotel & Resort, is one of the most eloquent and minimalistic designs the x2interactive team has made. Designed with the Desktop Computer, the Tablet and the Mobile devices in mind, the Mykonos Ammos Hotel website is a full screen photographic user eXperience. Small responsive touches have been added in various screen size resolutions in order to better perform in all possible screen sizes and platforms. As are most of our big hotel accounts, the website is built using our best selling x2iManager CMS for Hotels v.2.5 and is Search Engine Optimized in all available languages. To increase the Social Media signal strength for the Search Engines, our client has invested in a strong Social Presence.
Desktop Computer (PC, Mac, Linux)Based on strong, full screen photos, the Mykonos Ammos Hotel website, offers users an in depth view of the Resort, its areas of interest, its surroundings and its rooms. To keep all this photographic information “framed” and in order to offer ease of navigation and usability without disrupting the user eXperience, our design team placed on the top and on the bottom of the page, white areas that host the logo, the social profile links and other useful information. Underneath the top white bar, a thinner semi transparent black bar makes the photo in the background pop out and helps the “Book Now” button and each page’s slogan to stand out for the users to notice. Finally, knowing how important it is for the website users to view the background images when navigating the content pages, a SHOW / HIDE option has been added to all content areas.
Mobile Phones (iPhones, Android, Blackberry)
Following the minimalistic design, colours and look and feel of the Desktop website, the Mobile site of the Mykonos Ammos Hotel aims to inform the mobile user in a fast an easy manner. Using a prominent top bar with four major features (Home, Map, Contact and Book) the x2interactive web design team aims to grab the full attention of the online visitor before they have to scroll down to the other navigation options. The Mobile site is optimised for mobile phone browsing, minimum cellular data bandwidth usage and fast download speeds. For easier access, iOS and Android users can save the mobile site as a branded icon to their mobile phone’s home page.
