We are really happy to announce the release of our new Gantry 5 Joomla Template - Paradise!
So, what is Paradise all about? Paradise is a Gantry 5 Joomla template designed for Hotels, Hostels, Service Apartments and any other kind of accommodation which requires a booking system. It is a fully working solution for your accomodation business as it comes with the Solidres extension that handles all the booking stuff for you!
All features and design elements in Paradise were carefully selected and developed so they can bring absolutely everything that you might need for a modern, hotel & booking website. Let's have a closer look at some of them...
Solidres Booking Extension
Solidres is a fully-featured booking extension for Joomla! It comes with all these cool features that you will need for your booking website such as room showcase, calendar, availability checker, coupons and so on. Just have a look at its documentation, download it and play with it. Solidres is the most powerful Joomla booking extension available on the Web!
"Get in Touch" Gantry 5 Particle
In the very beginning of the design process of Paradise we were discussing what is the most important feature for a Hotel website. And all of us agreed that this is the contact information. The visitor must be able to find your phone, email and location with just a single click! And that's how the "Get in Touch" particle was born :)
The "Get in Touch" particle shows all of your contact information together with a Google Map in a very nice and practical modal window.
For more details about the "Get in Touch" particle, just have a look at this video.
Well, 99% of the hotel websites need a language switcher! In order to improve the user experience and actually, in order to get more guests to visit your hotel, you must give them the option to select the language they feel most confortable with, the language they actually understand!
We spent a lot of time to design the Language Switcher module in Paradise. The one you see in the demo is the Falang Language Module but you can use the default one that comes with Joomla as well. You can configure the Language Module in different ways, just have a look at this video for more details.
"Header Search" Gantry 5 Particle
We designed and developed a brand new Search particle for Paradise. It is at the same time functional and original. The "Header Search" particle brings some fine touch to the overall design and functionality :)
"Gallery" Gantry 5 Particle
You cannot build a hotel website without a Gallery, can you? :)
We included our awesome "Gallery" particle in Paradise as well (we originally introduced it in the Milano template).
The "Gallery" particle offers a great number of options such as number of columns, layout with and without a gutter and guess what - a sorting option! Have a look at this video for more details.
"Gallery Feature" Gantry 5 Particle
The "Gallery Feature" particle is divided into a left and right side. It takes most of the features from the "Gallery" particle and adds some new options so you can have your images on one side and then a title, description and a button on the other side. This video shows the particle itself and most of its options.
"Image Features" Gantry 5 Particle
The "Image Features" is another particle we developed specifically for Paradise! It allows you to present your features/services in a great way. It shows the features in columns (customizable) where you have the image on the left and title, description, special text (with icon) and a link on the right. Have a look at this video for more details.
"Memories" Gantry 5 Particle
The "Memories" particle we developed specifically for Paradise is another great addition for any hotel website! It is divided into a left and right side and displays 4 images with lightbox and parallax effect on one of the sides and a title, description and a button on the other side.
For more details about the "Memories" particle, just have a look at this video.
"Room Page" Gantry 5 Particle
So, you do not need the Solidres functionality because you are on Booking.com? Don't worry, we got you covered :)
This particle is all you need in order to create a page for the Hotel, Hostel, Apartment or whatever accomodation service you provide. Have a look at this video for more details.
The above are just a small part of all the cool features and design elements you will find in Paradise! And as always, we provide an extensive documentation and a dedicated support forum so you can build your hotel & booking website with pleasure :)
