Tajo del Aguila Website

Hoteles Andaluces con Encanto

Surrounded by nature with incredible views, the Tajo del Aguila Tourism Complex is impressive. The client, Hoteles Andaluces con Encanto, called upon us to create a website that would reflect the natural beauty of the hotels surroundings.

The overall look and feel of the site needed to be as “organic” as possible. We wanted to express the natural beauty of the complex’s surroundings as well as instill a sense of adventure of the great outdoors. To combine these two aspects we used the metaphor of a naturalists notebook to bring a real world concept to the interface.

After spending a few days in the complex taking photographs and notes, we began to take stock of the content on their existing site, keeping the content that worked and editing the parts that didn’t. Once we had an information architecture the client was pleased with, we began creating wireframes of the interface which we used to plan out the interface and make sure everything in the site was easy to find and in a logical order.

Since the complex’s size is considerable we needed an effective manner to display the location of its many facilities and cabins. The solution; integrate the Google Maps API into the site so visitors could see the overall layout of the area. Since the location of the complex is a bit off the beaten path, we also used the API in the “Location” section of the site so users could input their point of departure and easily create and print a road map on how to get there.

This project, like most other websites we create for hotels, needed to be multilingual, in this case starting out with two languages (Spanish and English), but with the ability to add other languages in the future. We used Coldfusion to create a bespoke content management system which allows them to administer the sites content in multiple languages, displaying multilingual text side by side and facilitate the translation of texts in the process. All in all it was a fun project to work on and the client was very happy with the results. We have also had the opportunity to design the complex’s print materials which reflect the aesthetic of the site as well.
