The Most Complete Hotel/B&B Theme Anywhere!
We were in a quandry. We needed a hotel theme (fast!) that didn’t require much development, yet had to work with Divi.
After an exhaustive search, we found the most comprehensive designs were from ThemeForest, yet most were created 3-5 years ago – definitely dated!
Even worse, they used unfriendly page builders (not Divi) & ThemeForest’s restrictive license scheme. Support took days to answer questions. Pretty much a non-starter… 😥
We’d invested heavily in the Divi ecosystem & wished to use what we’d already bought. Further, there’s tons of support in the Divi community & developers are super friendly!
That’s when we got the idea – why not create a Divi child theme & get the best of both worlds? All the “turn-key” goodness of ThemeForest with all the greatness of Divi!
After months of development, 5 Star Hotel was officially launched! Several updates later it’s better than ever! 😀
Tons of Pre-Made Elements
Add hotel-style layouts to Posts & Pages for lightning-fast designs of new or existing content.
Booking System Ready
Add settings from included documentation & update unique content for your business.
Beautifully designed for multiple screen sizes, including tricky “in-between” device widths.
Easy Client Interface
Crafted with client-management in mind, update content through simple Posts & Galleries.
Comprehensive documentation designed to “grow” over time offers ultimate ease-of-use.
There’s a lot to 5 Star Hotel. It’s too much to cover here, but check out our detailed install & demo setup instructions for more:
- It comes with 60+ Creative Commons images, so you have plenty to work with out-of-the-box.
- There’s over a dozen highly-stylized pages, with plenty of custom Divi layouts to build your own.
- Dynamic Posts change content on the front-end, so Hoteliers/Innkeepers can update content (rooms, menus, etc.) themselves.
- The child theme uses a one-click install process, so just upload the zip, click a button & your website looks like the demo!
Pro Tip: Lock down the pages with the in-built Divi Role Editor so clients can update content without worry. 😎
Performance & Plugins:
We didn’t just want a stylish website with lots of functionality; we wanted a fast one too. This required us to keep code clean & bake as much into the child theme as possible. A major benefit of this methodology is minimal issues when Divi updates. In fact, over 40 Divi updates later & it’s been smooth sailing!
For best performance we opted for: minimal plugins, minimal past revisions, pre-optimized images & using the Theme Customizer.
As professionals wanting to use 5 Star Hotel ourselves, we chose the best plugins available to round-out the user-experience. You’ll find a link to each plugin & a note for the ones “Essential” or “Recommended” to purchase.
Divi Blog Extras (Essential) – This plugin creates beautiful Post layouts with dynamic AJAX functionality. Check out our demo for the various layout styles. Very cool!
Divi Testimonial Slider (Recommended) – This plugin is perfect for showcasing reviews with images in a dynamic slider or grid, sorted by service type. Check our demo to see how we’ve implemented it!
HBook Booking System (Recommended) – The all-in-one WordPress hotel management plugin. Sync with 9+ booking services, manage check-ins, accept payments, create coupons & seasonal rates, plus much more. This is the best room booking plugin for WordPress. We’ve reviewed them all!
