According to Ms Karen Chan, Marketing Communications Manager for HPL Hotels & Resorts which manages Hard Rock Hotels Bali and Pattaya, this impressive figure was achieved as a result of an intense e-commerce strategy that is tied in with aggressive Internet marketing activities.

The stylish design and use of sleek colours serve to bring out the exciting atmosphere that can be expected at a Hard Rock Hotel. The user-friendly website is divided into six main sections that are navigated from the top menu bar, with each accommodating a variety of sub pages and content for easy access. With black being used as a canvas, the colour impact on each page is further enhanced through the use of large, vivid images. Visitors to the revamped websites will find the look professional and yet fun and irreverent, just like the Hard Rock brand.

The two hotels are also in the process of adding content in both Japanese and Chinese languages to allow them to reach out to important source markets and provide their customers with the Hard Rock experience in a language of their choice.

Asia?s third Hard Rock Hotel in Malaysia has also adopted the new look. Scheduled to open its doors in 2009, the 252-room Hard Rock Hotel Penang will front the beautiful beaches of Batu Ferringhi, adding a vibrant nightlife and exciting music scene to the popular holiday destination.
