About Mahogany Bay
The Mahogany Bay Cruise Center on Roatan, in the Bay Islands of Honduras is a 62 million dollar project and encompasses 20 acres of waterfront property. The two-berth cruise terminal offers a welcome center with an assortment of clothing, souvenir and gift outlets. The welcome center also includes two themed bars and a restaurant, for vacationers to enjoy.
Adjacent to the welcome center complex is the exclusive Mahogany beach offering a variety of beach activities for visitors and connected via a scenic ride on the “Magical Flying Beach Chair” lift. The Mahogany Bay Cruise Center is a joint venture of Roatan businessman, Jerry Hynds and Carnival Corporation & plc. The destination attracts more than 500,000 vacationers each year.
Mahogany Bay partnered with Bayshore Solutions to redesign its previous website with a refreshed look and updated interactivity. The Mahogany Bay Cruise Center needed a vehicle to communicate up-to-date port schedule information and local weather conditions to make travelers feel more at ease. They needed their website to highlight the port’s main attractions through enticing images, information, and videos that can be easily maintained by an internal staff web administrator.
Bayshore Solutions designed the Mahogany Bay Website to offer an overview at-a-glance of the 20-acre destination port that includes videos live streaming video web cam, a weather module, and images showcasing the popular Roatan cruise destination.
To enable easy management of website updates, Bayshore Solutions implemented WebModulesCMS, content management system. WebModulesCMS enables Slideshow functionality on the website homepage to showcase current pictures of Mahogany Bay. It also includes an Events Module calendar display, and renders on a mobile website. Mahogany Bay website administrators can now update pages, images and content throughout the site in a familiar and easy-to-use content management interface.
