Alohilani Resort (Responsive Website Design / UX)

Alohilani is a fresh perspective on resorts in Waikiki. Formerly known as Pacific Beach Hotel, Alohilani Resort Waikiki Beach has undergone extensive renovations and an ambitious rebranding.

The Challenge

Along with a new brand, they needed a new website to reflect all the amenities and features that they offer at the property. I was involved with the team to design and develop a website that not only highlighted their amenities, but also translated their perspective on an authentic experience through a digital format. We had to make sure all the information architecture made sense for a website holding so much information for a resort. We had to list 5 restaurants, all the amenities, room types (ADA included), events, etc. to help highlight why Alohliani was such a destination point.

UX/UI

When working on development with creating a strong website for the property, one of the big ideas we wanted to venture into was featuring movement through video capability. I worked on designing components for development to create on the website that allowed the hotel to showcase all that it has to offer; from constant press and blog posts, to big events and special packages. It went through several iterations before we were able to land on a dynamic homepage for desktop and mobile that the client was happy about.
