LAS VEGAS, Jan. 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Oriens Travel & Hotel Management Corp. ("Oriens") (Pink Sheets: OTHM - News; ), a Travel and Hotel Management Company, operating online travel site 128trip () and hotel management subsidiary; Hotel PURE (), are pleased to announce the addition of the Las Palmas House Inn property in downtown San Jose, Costa Rica, to the PURE B & B line of managed properties.
Costa Rica, a country where tourist visits have increased tremendously over the last five years, has an abundance of small family-run hotel facilities. With travelers initiating booking accommodations and other travel plans through the internet, these small beautiful hotels are not able to compete for the travel dollar and great travel experiences are just not being utilized. Oriens intends to offer the budget-conscious travelers exposure to these wonderful properties in conjunction with a selection of customized tour packages, which will complement the overall travel experience. The latest addition to the Hotel Pure brand includes rooms with private facilities, such as cable TV and phone facilities, and includes premises suitable for the physically impaired.
To raise awareness of the Costa Rica experience, Oriens will be joining with several major charter airlines to offer a travel package which will incorporate prices not usually available in the Costa Rican market. Further, the local Chamber of Commerce and Tourism will partner with Oriens to develop a higher profile for the Costa Rica experience, which will include offering hospitality and other service providers from around the world an opportunity to familiarize themselves with all the exciting experiences that can be offered to their clients.
The initial deployment of Hotel PURE properties in Costa Rica has been integrated to the corporate website at and can be found by clicking on the "Hotels" link, under the Hotel PURE section, or by visiting
Ken Chua, President and CEO of Oriens, comments, "I am so optimistic as I continue to see the expanded business opportunities which our staff in Costa Rica is bringing together that we may need to rewrite the business plan for 2008. At the very least, it seems we will have to bring more resources to Costa Rica, which we had not originally considered until the third quarter of 2008. We continue to be contacted by local businesses who wish to be a part of the Hotel PURE brand and have had to increase our local hours of operation to meet with the unexpected demand."
