Latical Project Proposal

Manda Bay

Brief

Manda Bay is a stunning boutique lodge located on the northern tip of Manda Island in the Lamu archipelago on Kenya’s coast. Manda Bay draws its uniqueness from it's secluded stunning location and its consideration for the environment, which permeates in it’s services to its guests, making this destination spot an ideal getaway for clients seeking an unmatched, private experience considerate of nature.


Manda Bay is looking to refresh it’s web offering to convey the brand’s true value, and channel enquiries to it’s website, leading to increased direct enquiries and bookings.


Manda Bay is also looking for a solution to manage bookings more efficiently and seamlessly. Our user experience must therefore strike the right balance and allow for automation of bookings, while leaving space for manual intervention where relevant.


Finally, this is a perfect opportunity to cross market with the Safari Conservation Company, with subtle references to common initiatives on your website and social media platforms.

Approach

At Latical, our focus is to take your potential clients on a journey about what Manda Bay is, what its offering stands for and make them fall in love with the product, ultimately leading them to enquire or book!


Further, our highly collaborative approach ensures that my clients, project teams and partners are always pulling in the same direction and towards the same goals. 


We will revisit your brand presence across the digital mediums to convey it's true value, thereafter our focus will be to drive traffic to your refreshed website  and primary touch point, generating increased direct business.
