Origin of the adult-only Passion Suite – Enthusiasm or Desire, or both?
Monday, 20 December 2010
A number of tropical resorts are showcasing “Passion Suites” for the coming year – a form of accommodation that takes the traditional Honeymoon Suite to the next level - is this a sign of the times or a new direction for hotels and resorts?
What was once the purview of the Honeymoon Suite has been expanded to couples of all kinds. For many hotels and resorts this is a reaction to declining worldwide travel as a means to differentiate and encourage bookings. However, in this appeal to vacationers, the Passion Suite is an implicit recognition of social trends that acknowledge the virility of a maturing population. According to the Durex Sexual Wellbeing Global Survey, there does not appear to be a distinction in passionate activities based upon whether a couple has or has not been just married, and in fact the passion continues well beyond the age of 65.
According to Luis, Assistant Manager of The Copacabana Hotel & Resort in Jaco Beach, Costa Rica that recently completed renovations for its new “Passion Suite”:
“It may not just be Costa Rica but the passion experienced by our guests is not limited to those just married, many couples that have been together 2, 10 and 25 years, have come to the Copacabana Hotel to ignite and re-ignite their passion and enthusiasm for each other. Our new Passion Suite is a dedication and acknowledgment of this enthusiasm and while similar to our Honeymoon Suite, is larger, more luxurious and more sophisticated to reflect the more experienced nature of our non-newly married clientele.”
These specials suites commonly include upscale amenities such as large in-room Jacuzzis that are not part of the bathroom, supplies of essential oils and lotions, extra large kind sized beds, top line sound and video systems, and preferred access to resort services such as spas, room service, and concierge.
Essentially the “Passion Suite” is not only a place to stay, but is designed to be an experience that is memorable and lasting to the couples that are pampered and made to feel as if they are the most important in the world and to each other. For this reason, the Passion Suite at the Copacabana Hotel and Resort is exclusive to the all-inclusive program and available only by advance booking. The additional benefit of the Copacabana Hotel’s Passion Suite is its tropical location that in a resort that is beachfront to one of the nicest beaches in all of Costa Rica’s Pacific coast.
The Passion Suite is therefore a romantic experience in a romantic locale that can enflame a couple’s enthusiasm or desires, or both!
