What are the main selling points of Original Group’s hotels and cruises?
Our properties and chartered cruises check all the boxes of upscale hospitality, but with a twist. Our main selling points are each brand’s unmatched adults-only, our all-inclusive concept in the Mexican Caribbean and at sea, our focus on maintaining a judgement-free, safe, and friendly atmosphere, our superior food & beverage offering, and, most importantly, our exceptional service that is provided by an incredible staff who are attentive and cater to our guests’ needs 24/7.
While the experience and offering are tailored per brand (Desire is couples-only and clothing-optional, whereas Temptation is adults-only and topless-optional), our focus on adult entertainment is what sets us apart.
In addition to creating a safe and free-spirited environment, we offer a wide array of packages that cater to a variety of reasons for traveling, whether it be celebrating a new beginning with a group of friends at Temptation, with packages for divorce and bachelorette parties; or living out the wildest fantasies with a significant other at Desire with packages that set the scene for couples to enrich their imagination (Erotic Massage, Strip Seduction, Terrace of Passion, Pole Pleasure, and more).
What kinds of guests do you typically have?
Travelers are increasingly seeking experiential and transformative vacations that go beyond the traditional all-inclusive model. As the leading expert of adult hospitality in Mexico, Original Group goes beyond typical adults-only getaways.
Travel agents should know what audience each brand caters to while also understanding that both brands welcome all types of adults who are curious about exploring their adventurous side and are interested in meeting new like-minded people.
DESIRE: our Desire resorts and charted cruises appeal to couples looking for an exclusive, intimate, sensual, clothing-optional ambiance, full of freedom and respect for their lifestyle. Travel agents should sell this type of experience to couples ages 35+ who are looking for the perfect place to rekindle the flame or simply enjoy a sexually uninhibited atmosphere.
TEMPTATION: Temptation underwent a multimillion-dollar renovation in 2017 that enhanced the brand and offering, making it the perfect topless-optional getaway for the chic, confident world traveler. Travel agents should sell this type of vacation to clients seeking an all-inclusive experience that offers singular entertainment with vibrant, fun parties and performances, while also mixing and mingling with new couples and single friends.
What is different about Original Group’s offering? Why sell them and not other hotels or cruises?
We mostly have repeat travelers, which is a great advantage for travel agents because it means repeat business. For Temptation Cancun Resort, between 30 and 40% of our guests are repeaters, while for Desire it is between 50 and 60%
Additionally, we have attractive commission rates and provide our sales partners with all the tools they need to achieve their sales goals.
What happens if one of my clients contracts COVID-19 while or after visiting the property?
All our guests are strongly encouraged to report any symptoms to the front desk. In case they present symptoms, we will activate a protocol that includes making sure they receive proper testing and medical attention. In case a guest tested positive and does not need hospitalization, they would be isolated in their room. Once the guests leave, all rooms are disinfected following our safety and sanitation protocols.
In case of a positive test, we also notify the sanitary authorities, in accordance with Mexican law.
In general, why do you think some agents shy away from suggesting such unconventional offerings to their clients?
Once travel agents and sales partners understand our concept, it’s easier for them to convey the experience to their clients. First and foremost, our philosophy is one of respect, that is why our hotels and cruises are not nudist or topless, but clothing optional or topless optional. We believe that people should have the option to be themselves, which is why we prioritize creating a safe and open environment for our guests to explore their adventurous side.
