HOST RESORT

Playa Hotels & Resorts will host DWHSA’s 2020 conference at the Hilton La Romana Resort & Spa in the Dominican Republic!

This property will undergo renovations through the end of 2019 that will overhaul the adults-only and family-friendly sections and add five new dining venues per section, along with extra such as a water park for the kids. You’ll be completely amazed when you see it in person!

The seminars and conference activities will take place in the resort’s conference center, so the meeting rooms will lie within easy walking distance of the guestrooms. You may eat breakfast on your own in the mornings and grab lunch at the adjacent buffet restaurant during our daily two-hour lunch breaks.

We’ve negotiated special all-inclusive lodging rates for your four-night stay (arriving Monday, April 27, 2020 and departing Friday, May 1, 2020):  USD$749 single or $499 double. (Based on supplier sponsorships, there’s no extra registration fee – once you register and pay the lodging rates, you’re set!) These rates are standard all-inclusive prices – they include your meals, drinks, and standard on-site activities.

PRE- AND POST-CONFERENCE STAYS

Playa has graciously offered pre- and post-conference rates at other D.R. resorts that you may add onto your conference plans. They’re good for up to 3 nights before the event (April 24, 25, and 26) and for up to 3 nights after the event (May 1, 2, and/or 3). Here’s the list of resorts and rates (on a per-night, per-person basis):

  • Hyatt Zilara Cap Cana or Hyatt Ziva Can Cana: $145 double/$232 single
  • Hilton La Romana: $115 double/$175 single
  • Sanctuary Cap Cana: $169 double/$239 single

After you register for the conference, you’ll receive instructions for booking these pre- and post-event rates.

TRANSFERS

In late January 2020, we’ll send all registrants a list of D.R. transfer companies you may use to get to the resort from the airport. (Many agents will use PUJ for their flights, but you’re welcome to choose any D.R. airport that’s best for you.) Some companies may offer discounted rates, so we recommend that you wait until the end of January to book your transfers.
