Superstar Storyteller: Pelican Eyes

You have a story to tell, a mission statement, a feature, a location or an experience just waiting to be shared.  Every hotel is unique and should use its voice to communicate with travel shoppers.

Pelican Eyes Resort and Spa displays a visual slideshow on their homepage, along with brief, yet captivating text descriptions like “swim on the edge” that help communicate their amenities.

When visiting Pelican Eyes’ webpage, travel shoppers get a visual sense of the relaxing experience to be had at the resort. They set a great example of how to tell a story through the use of striking photos and minimal yet compelling text.  In addition, they have a mobile optimized webpage which is something every hotel should work towards if they haven’t already. US mobile travel sales are estimated to reach $13.6 billion this year, as 25.5 million consumers book on mobile (eMarketer) so it is critical to capitalize on mobile sales and tell your visual story on this growing platform.
