The Wickaninnish Inn is a little slice of luxury heaven in one of my favourite spots on the planet–Long Beach on Vancouver Island. We’ve been there a few times, and it continues to rank as one of my top five accomodation experiences, ever.
Their website, though, was always a bit shoddy, and never truly reflected the awesomeness of the inn.
I recently got an email from them indicating that they’d revamped their site. I checked it out, and they’ve done a great job of both simplifying the site, and improving its aesthetic.
The cool bit, though, is the clever Flash implementation on the front page. It’s soundless, navigable, super-slick and gorgeous.
As it turns out, I know one of the guys at Wallop Creative, the design studio that redid the site. That had no impact on my response to the site–I learned that I’d surfed around for a few minutes.
