We have just released a new version of our popular hotel theme Kea Resort. The new version is based on the Ignition Framework and offers customization options which make it an ideal choice for hotels, motels, resorts, rental properties and anyone else in the hospitality sector. Let’s take a look at some key theme features.
Based on the Ignition Framework
The Ignition Framework plugin brings to Kea all the flexibility and control it provides to its users. Bundled you will find dozens of customization options for colors, typography, site, header & footer layout, customization options for post listings and many more to tailor the theme to your needs. Additionally the plugin provides the Accommodation custom post type and any related templates, third party plugin integrations and many more. This clear separation of tasks makes Kea lightweight and easy to customize.
Accommodation custom post type
The accommodation post type serves as a blank canvas on which you can build great showcases for your rooms, studios, villas, suites and other domiciles. Use your favorite WordPress provided blocks, and third party ones like the ones provided by GutenBee, our free custom blocks plugin, to create unique content for each of your accommodation items. Utilize all forms of media, like images, galleries, slideshows, videos and even audio to capture the attention of your visitors with beautiful vistas of areas surrounding your property, stills from your rooms or virtual tours of your facilities. The Post Types block bundled with GutenBee will help you create listings for your accommodation items which can either be global with optional category filtering, or listings of a single accommodation category, it’s up to you.
Booking on your own terms
Booking is a very important aspect of any hotel and with Kea we wanted to allow you to continue working with your favorite tools. if you are already using an external booking service just grab their embed code and paste it in any page you like, if you prefer using WordPress booking plugins (or even handle bookings through WooCommerce, since Kea is compatible) go right ahead, finally if all you need is a simple availability request form you can also do that, create the form with your preferred contact form plugin and paste it in any page.
Video and slideshow homepages
First impressions are very important. With Kea you can make them last by creating front pages with full screen slideshows or videos. Let your property and its beautiful surroundings do all the heavy lifting, charm your visitors and turn them into customers.
If you have international clients you might need a multilingual site. Kea is compatible with all the major translation plugins out there, such as WPML, Polylang, Weglot and others to ensure everything a smooth translation experience when it comes to matters handled by the theme. Additionally all theme (and Ignition Framework plugin) strings are fully translatable with any popular string translation method such as Loco Translate, WPML string translation, PoEdit and others.
With Kea you can build a completely unique site for your hotel or resort by taking advantage of the full control given to you over the site’s colors, typography and layout. With the extensive support for the block editor you can easily bring all your designs to life. Kea is fast, responsive and looks great on all screen sizes to help you reach a broader customer base.
