Tassia Lodge is an eco-friendly community owned Lodge set in the Lekurruki Conservancy on the lower slopes of Mount Kenya, Northern frontier district of Kenya. Consisting of 6 rustic, chic and luxurious rooms it can sleep up to 12 to 16 with kids.
By staying at Tassia the visitor is directly benefiting conservation in the area and supporting a local community as well as a holiday of a lifetime. The lodge is a community owned lodge meaning part of the money from each bed night goes directly to the community, where Tassia helps set up community projects. Because of the way Tassia is run, guests get unrivalled cultural experiences, all the staff at the lodge are employed from the surrounding communities and are happy to take guests to their villages. You can take a walk with them and explore the old caves people used to live and shelter in, learn how to make fires with just wood and kindling etc.
Tassia wanted to a new website to really showcase them in an increasingly competitive marketplace. This I have done with full screen enigmatic images, giving a real feel for this wonderful place and immersing the visitor completely as soon as they arrive on the site. The visitor should really begin to feel what it would be like to stay at Tassia. Big drop down menus were a no-no and so landing pages were created with pictorial links to sub-pages, so much more user-friendly for desktop and mobile – bringing the visitor deeper and deeper into the site with every click. Icons and buttons were designed and created to blend with the Tassia theme. The font used is the contemporary classic Gill Sans.
The site is completely mobile friendly; correct coding and hosting with WP-Engine ensures that it is always very fast to load. Whether the visitor is on desktop, tablet or mobile they will always have a good experience when they visit. Google friendly goes without saying and the necessary components and code are included to ensure the best results.
Last but not least the site is built on the WordPress platform to allow user-friendly content management and editing for all text, images and galleries.
