tourism, the owner and operator of several brands: Mayan Sea Garden, Mayan
Palace, Grand Mayan, IQ Hotels, and Mayan Island Real Estate, each tailored
to a different segment of the vacation market. The new
website Interactive Sites created unifies the brands under the banner,
“Mayan Resorts redefining vacations for the 21st century,” and strengthens
the brands’ web presence and personalities. The result has allowed Mayan
Resorts to widen the scope of their e-commerce marketing efforts.

The new Mayan Resorts website incorporates highly interactive elements that
allow the individual resorts within each of the five brands to custom tailor
each online experience to the needs and interests of visitors, while
ensuring functionality and ease of use.

developer able to translate our functionality and branding issues into a
site that works. Since launching the new website, we have seen a dramatic
increase in inquiries and bookings online,” commented Alma Chavez, Director
of Strategic Planning for Mayan Resorts. “Our new website demonstrates why
Interactive Sites has a well-earned industry reputation for performance and
design excellence. They are the standard by which hotel and resort websites
are judged.”

significant player in the Mexican hospitality industry and we beliece there
is great potential for growth in Mexican tourism and hospitality,” said

Sites’ work for Mayan Resorts supports that growth by giving their
properties a strong, functional and accessible web presence that advances
the cause of Mexico as an important leisure destination. The new Mayan
