Te Moenga Lodge, nestled in Acacia Bay overlooking Lake Taupo, is a special place to stay. Following extensive renovations, the lodge opened to guests in January 2016. Providing the comfort and relaxation needed after a day of action and activity around the great lake area, there is suitable accommodation for weekend travellers, couples on a getaway, right through to families looking for somewhere to base themselves and explore.
As a key promotional asset for Te Moenga Lodge, the website needed to provide guests the opportunity to get an understanding of the accommodation and services available, to book and also get a feel for the place. We developed a visual identity for Te Moenga Lodge, which highlighted its unique location offering comfort and relaxation with a dash of something a little bit special for guests. This was then applied to the website.
The views are the hero of Te Moenga’s story so the menu has been kept to the left-hand side, unobtrusive to allow for big imagery that showcases the beauty of the location.
Research and experience told us that people like to be able to see what they are booking when it comes to accommodation, so these pages have been designed and developed with the flexibility to add or update images easily. Images are displayed in a carousel with the option for users to enlarge them for a better look.
Te Moenga Lodge is a stunning backdrop for weddings, so separate pages have been included for weddings and functions to assist in Google searches.
Te Moenga’s website development involved integration with a booking engine. Booking functionality is always prominent and follows users down the page as they scroll.
