Licuala Lodge Mission Beach

Licuala Lodge at Mission Beach is a beautiful bed and breakfast property, nestled amongst rainforest surrounds. It’s a magical location and is home to an abundance of wildlife, with the majestic Southern Cassowary frequent visitors to their landscaped gardens. They received a grant to update their website and chose us as their preferred developers – the end result is something we are all very proud of.

“RJ New Designs were recommended to us for a complete rebuild of our website and we were very impressed with their approach and professionalism. Richard and Julie took the time to really understand our business and what we were trying to achieve with the redesign. We are extremely happy with the end result.”

The ‘old’ Licuala Lodge website was outdated in its appearance and functionality. Its design and imagery did not do justice to the property and its content was not search engine optimised. All of these factors were addressed and corrected in the writing, design and development of the new website.

To assist with the creative process, the RJ New Designs team went and stayed at Licuala Lodge. This enabled us to gain first-hand knowledge of the property, its configuration, gardens and bed and breakfast service. It also provided the time to sit and talk with the owners to understand their intent and desired outcomes for the new website.

From there we developed a suggested site plan and navigation structure, which would maximise the benefit of their grant funds and align it with their requirements for the new site and its performance for key search terms. Once this was finalised we set to work.

RJ New Designs services provided in conjunction with the Licuala Lodge website include, but are not limited to; website design; video editing; photo collation and editing; custom WordPress coding and development; copy writing and website hosting.

The government grants have assisted many small businesses to improve their online presence. RJ New Designs feel privileged to be trusted by business owners, to utilise these funds to create websites which deliver real business outcomes.
