Improving cabin discoverability by redesigning the query and reviewing of search results.

Unplugged.rest offers busy city workers a 3-day escape in an off-grid cabin. Their goal is to help people escape the endless screen time by providing an environment where they can truly relax.

While the cabins themselves offered a great experience, trying to book one on the Unplugged.rest website was more of a challenge. Users were limited to vague searching filters which greatly limited how personalized their results could be. And the search results page aggregated not just cabin types but also every available date for every cabin type.
This meant users were presented with an enormous list of options. Compounding this, the search result items were visually overcrowded and listed repeated, redundant information.

Overall, users experienced both pour personalization and cluttered information overload when trying to locate and book a calming cabin escape.
To tackle these challenges, the search functionality and search results page was completely redesigned to be more engaging and focus on putting the user back in control.

The updated design offers users greater flexibility and specificity when searching for a time and place they would like to relax. This allows for more tailored search results.

The results page itself has also been restructured to list only cabin types that are available within the specified search parameters (with exact date availability being found within the cabin page). Organizing search results by cabin type only reduced the overall content complexity, simplifying the user's decision-making process when reviewing available options.

Lastly, a newly added cabin catalogue page allows users to explore all available cabin types. This can give users a broader understanding of what styles are available and which may best suit their needs.
