Objectives

Pathos Lounge website is part of one of the largest investments ever done in Greece. Pathos is based on the small and traditional island of Ios in Kyclades. They needed to update their website in order to provide critical information for their services and to gain a higher ranking.

Pathos's infrastructure includes 13 different resort areas including restaurants, wine bar, lounge, the largest pool in Greece and private areas for parties and receptions. Pathos also includes a chapel and is a large capacity wedding venue. It's considered to be one of the top places in Europe for a 'dream wedding'.

What is it about

Pathos website is about providing guests with information about Pathos Lounge, the island of Ios, upcoming live events, activities offered, reservations, quotes for weddings and in general a complete overview of the facility. The website supports native languages of Greek and English plus an auto-translator for more than 30 languages. Through the website you can browse the gallery, watch multiple videos from past events and get the complete feel of Pathos and its surroundings. 

 

What we did

Our design team came up with an exclusive design, combining parallax technologies with complete compatibility with all modern devices. We designed 4 different layouts, offering a customized view for large screens, medium screens, tablets and mobile devices. The Website is responsive+, meaning there are objects hidden for different screens. This way the visual experience of the visitor is better and the navigation smoother and faster.

The focus from the beginning was to follow the "rules" in order to have the best possible SEO results while also having visitors impressed with the facility.
