Oriens to Obtain Traditional Financing – Facilitating Acquisitions

Non-Toxic Asset Based Funding Will Help Complete Pending Closings and Other Negotiated Properties

LAS VEGAS, NV / ACCESSWIRE / July 17, 2014 / Oriens Travel & Hotel Management Corp. (OTC PINK: OTHM) (OTHM), the Next Generation International Hotel Brand Operator, operating its Hotel PURE brand, announced today, that Oriens, via its associate partnerships, has been approved to receive traditional asset backed financing in excess of $2 Million.

“We are very conscious of toxic-financing and how it detrimentally affects shareholders,” stated Ken Chua, President of Oriens Travel & Hotel Management. “This is why having hard assets, which can be leveraged through more traditional and conservative, non-toxic fundings, is so important; ultimately to shareholders and for overall Company value. Through our partnerships in Costa Rica, we have been able to accomplish just that and so much more.”

The Company is deploying a two part strategy to finance its endeavors. First, traditional real estate loans will act as bridge capital. Next, Oriens will secure long-term equity based financing – eliminating debt while increasing equity ownership; providing Oriens with non-toxic operating capital. Currently, the Company is in talks to secure close to $10M in long-term equity based financing.

Mr. Chua concluded, “We expect to secure our first bridge capital funding during the next scheduled trip down to Costa Rica. This will assist us with completing our initial acquisition, while advancing our position with negotiations for two additional properties in Jaco.”

Management indicated the Company is on schedule to complete its acquisition.

Sexual Tourism in Costa Rica

Did you know prostitution is legal in Costa Rica? Yes it is! Tourists from the United States and Canada fuel the local economies through sexual tourism.

Though a conservative country, the oldest profession in the book is clearly acceptable. You may even hear a hard negotiation on price! Woman are free to charge for sexual services as they see fit!

For a feel of sexual tourism and prostitution in Costa Rica, we found this article http://news.co.cr/sexual-tourism-thrives-at-hotel-cocal-and-casino-in-jaco-beach-costa-rica/24123/ . It provided much insight to the sexual tourism industry.

…But if any of our shareholders would like to go in undercover, and report back…PLEASE, let us know!

Until Next time…

Sincerely,
Team Oriens

Adapting to the culture of Costa Rica

When the time comes to retire, Costa Rica may be on your radar for further due diligence. Many of those that retire here, have adapted to the Costa Rican culture.

Costa Rican people are non-confrontational and laid back. To accuse or imply something against another would be considered an insult too many. Remember this is their country…If you want to live here, consider adapting to their way of life. It will be easier to make friends, socialize and reside in this beautiful region.

Women traditionally care for the home. When going outside the home, women wear make-up and always look their best. This could result in a whistle or two…but again this would be acceptable behavior. Though Costa Rican culture is historically male –dominate, gender inequality is no longer tolerated.

Greetings are important. A handshake between males, but a kiss on the cheek is quite appropriate between females, or male to female (vice versa).

Catholicism is the primary religion of Costa Rica, and there are taboo subjects (One would never speak of pre-marital sex or abortion in public). Smaller communities tend to be more conservative than the big cities. Consider listening and learning a bit to know if a topic is acceptable. You would never want to offend a native Costa Rican. You may retire here!

Until next time…

Sincerely,

Team Oriens
