When Orb.co founder Aaron King created a wall art shop featuring beautiful nature photography, his mission was clear: Get nature’s beauty into homes everywhere.
“We believe deeply in the power of nature’s beauty,” Aaron explains. “Have you noticed the peace and serenity you feel in the great outdoors? That’s the feeling we want to put into homes. There’s a palpable difference when you put something beautiful on your wall, and every human deserves that feeling in his or her life.”
But not everyone is shopping for wall art. So the Orb.co team knew they’d need something special to get customers excited. Aaron explains further, “That was our ‘Aha!’ moment. When we realized we could not only get nature onto people’s walls, but also give them a chance to put their feet in the sand, to feel the ocean breeze on their face, to watch the sun set over the horizon. It was a perfect fit.”
Knowing that most hotels and resorts don’t run at full capacity for most of the year, Orb.co set up a partnership to fill otherwise-empty hotel & resort rooms with guests. Even if those guests stay for free, the hotels would boost profits from other revenue-generating operations like the restaurant, bar, spa, or from guests staying extra days.
But the team at Orb.co doesn’t want customers walking into this blindly. It’s important that customers understand what the offer covers and how it works. For example, while the offer does cover the resort stay, it doesn’t cover airfare, food, or the resort taxes & fees. And since it’s made possible by helping resorts fill rooms that would have sat empty, some dates won’t be available to be booked. However, there are no timeshare presentations to attend.
After placing a $119 order, customers are able to select from a variety of destinations, including 5 Nights in Hawaii, 5 Nights in Cancún, 4 Nights in Paris, 4 Nights in Fiji, and a variety of 3-night destinations across the continental U.S.
Travel vouchers don’t have to be used right away. Orb.co is currently allowing customers to leave their travel voucher on hold so they can wait to travel until they feel ready. And for those who wish to travel soon, several of the destinations offered are open and accepting guests with additional sanitation procedures in place.
