Playa Hotels & Resorts will host DWHSA’s 2021 conference at the Hilton La Romana Resort & Spa in the Dominican Republic!

This property underwent comprehensive renovations at the end of 2019 that overhauled the adults-only and family-friendly sections and added five new dining venues per section, along with extras 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 26, 2020 and checking out April 30, 2020):  USD$749 single or $499 double. (Note:  There’s no extra registration fee for you as a travel adviser. You’re paying only for your all-inclusive lodging. We’ve used supplier fees to pay all of the other conference expenses.) These rates are standard all-inclusive prices – they include your meals, drinks, and standard on-site activities.

To reserve your room and register for the conference, here’s the link!


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 23-25) and for up to 3 nights after the event (April 30-May 2). After you register for the conference, you’ll receive instructions for booking these pre- and post-event rates if you wish.


Many agents will use PUJ for their conference flights, but of course you’re welcome to choose any D.R. airport that’s best for you. Here’s a list of recommended vendors you may contact to book your transfers (please remind them that you’re attending the 2021 conference for the Destination Wedding & Honeymoon Specialists Association [DWHSA] – they may not always recognize the Romance Travel University event name!):
