Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort Proudly Launches Innovative State-of-the-Art Web Site
HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (July 11, 2008) -Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort, an award-winning vacation destination located on Hilton Head Island, S.C., recently launched a new state-of-the-art web site.
The new web site currently features convenient online booking for accommodations and golf. In the future, Palmetto Dunes plans to expand the web site's capabilities so visitors can bundle accommodations and activities reservations in a single online itinerary, which will be an industry first.
E-site Marketing, a leading web site developer headquartered in Bethesda, Md., designed the new web site to serve as a valuable extension of the successful Palmetto Dunes brand. The elegant design, which is posted online at www.palmettodunes.com, emphasizes the range of amenities and activities available for visitors, from golf and tennis to biking and kayaking.
"The new Palmetto Dunes web site serves as an interactive part of our branding and marketing efforts," said Bret Martin, vice president of resort operations at Palmetto Dunes. "The new web site is completely user-friendly and allows visitors to achieve a deeper, richer understanding of our world-class accommodations, amenities and activities. Our new web site showcases the remarkable beauty of Palmetto Dunes and provides all the information visitors need to plan an unforgettable vacation to Hilton Head Island."
The web site features expanded information about accommodations, dining, activities, shopping and more at this award-winning resort. In addition, visitors can now choose from a wide selection of packages, ranging from a seven-night Dream Golf Vacation to a three-night Romantic Escape. Visitors can also use a handy online concierge service.
The resort was recently ranked the #1 Family Resort in the United States by Travel + Leisure Family magazine and continues to receive accolades for outstanding achievement.
"At Palmetto Dunes, our philosophy has always been to exceed the expectations of our resort guests on every level, and that certainly applies to our presence on the Internet as well," said Martin. "The response to our new web site has been outstanding so far. We expect the newly-launched design to generate a significant increase in bookings for 2008 and 2009."
