We are looking for a totally unique site to promote a totally unique product: a spiritual retreat in Fiji. The site should reflect a feeling of tranquility, paradise and enlightenment. The site design could incoporate elements of a hotel site combined with elements from a religious/spiritual site (with more of an Eastern theme).

All that is required is a home page with one other page which will be used throughout the site. We will add all the necessary text to the template designed by you. No other elements, for example forms, are required. We do not have pictures of the retreat, as it does not yet exist, except on paper. Perhaps one approach is to create a 'mystical' feel.

The resort is deliberately small, exclusive and intimate. Many of the rooms are supported on poles that place the structure within the forest canopy - creating the effect of living in a treehouse. A look toward the sea from each private deck reveals an exquisite view of the pristine Tropical Ocean in an infinite array of pastel blues.

We are really looking for your creative ideas, as we have nothing specific in mind. Feel free to provide a very rough draft of your ideas (uncoded at first). If we like your idea we will ask you to develop the draft further.

Some templates that we think came close but still missed the mark are listed below. They are all very different, we know. The reason we've not gone for a template is because we can't find one that combines spiritual and resort themes in one.

Too busy, but we like the idea of a happy couple with sea & mountain background:

Like the 'explorer' feel:

Like the simple design, with strong graphic, although we do not have any pictures of the resort now:
http://www.templatemonster.com/flas…12318.html

Slightly too busy, and graphics need to focus on surroundings, not the resort itself.

Nice, but would prefer bluish/greenish theme:
http://www.templateworld.com/templa…4-548.html

Nice, but central content block should be a single column:
http://www.templateworld.com/templa…8-443.html

We like this simple design - just wish it had a more spiritual feel:

Nice, but don't like cartoon images (do like 'cartoon' navigations):
