HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. -- The new user-friendly and device-responsive website for Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort, a family-friendly South Carolina beach resort that offers a variety of activities from golf and tennis to kayaking and fishing, received the highest honor from the Interactive Media Awards.
As a Best in Class award recipient for the Hotel/Resort category, the website had to successfully pass through a comprehensive judging process, achieving very high marks in each criteria. It is an achievement only a fraction of sites in the IMA competition earn each year.
The Interactive Media Awards are an international awards program recognizing excellence in web design and development organized by the Interactive Media Council, a nonprofit organization dedicated to elevating the standards of excellence on the Internet.
The new website, located at www.palmettodunes.com and launched in September 2014, lets guests sort almost 150 Hilton Head vacation homes and rentals by date, location, view and number of people each unit can accommodate. Users can now also reserve golf tee times, bikes, kayaks, canoes, paddleboards, beach chairs and more via the click of the mouse.
An interactive map allows users to clearly view and highlight the location of various activities and hubs within the resort, including its three championship golf courses, Palmetto Dunes Tennis Center, oceanfront Dunes House restaurant and meeting venue, Hilton Head Outfitters, bike paths, beach access points and more. Viewers can also see where specific neighborhoods and vacation units are located within the resort and their proximity to different activities.
