As I shared with you recently, StarwoodPro is celebrating our five year anniversary. And we are kicking off the festivities with the launch of our 15th destination module, Starwood Destination the Dominican Republic, and the opportunity for five StarwoodPros to visit Punta Cana. Throughout the year-long celebration, Starwood will offer fabulous prizes: including gift cards, free nights, branded gifts, and more. Every module a travel professional completes or has completed in the last five years will be an entry for a chance to win.

We see StarwoodPro’s anniversary celebration as another opportunity to recognize you for your time, commitment, and passion for our brands by rewarding you and your colleagues with even bigger surprise and delights, prizes, promotions and more. If you are not yet a StarwoodPro, here’s yet one more reason to take the time to complete our Loyalty and Brands module and become a StarwoodPro today.

Starwood has nearly 1,200 properties across 100 countries around the globe and offers 15 different destination immersions through the StarwoodPro travel professional program. Each month, new destination prizes will be added from Starwood’s nine brands and StarwoodPros will have a chance to experience the incredible destinations that Starwood calls home.

The new Dominican Republic Destination module focuses on Punta Cana and our newly opened island properties, the Westin Puntacana Resort and the Four Points by Sheraton Puntacana Village. Both properties are part of the Puntacana Resort & Club, which offers access to water sports, shopping, 15 restaurants, and golf and spa experiences. The Westin Puntacana Resort is situated on the beautiful white sands of Playa Blanca beach and boasts 200 rooms and suites. The Four Points by Sheraton Puntacana Village offers 124 guest rooms.

Access to Starwood’s 15 destination modules is exclusive to our StarwoodPro Loyalty & Brands module graduates. Existing ProLearning destination modules have already been viewed by thousands of current StarwoodPros. The destinations include Thailand Resorts, Hawaii, the Caribbean, Mexico, The Maldives, Fiji, Bali, Hainan Island China, Macau, Greece, Canada, Rio de Janeiro, Panama City and Buenos Aires. Additional destinations will debut throughout StarwoodPro’s 5th anniversary year.

If you are not yet a StarwoodPro, we encourage you and your colleagues to visit and complete the ProLearning Loyalty & Brands modules, which qualify you for STARPRO travel professional rates starting at just $69 a night. And this year, StarwoodPros have the chance to win weekly and monthly celebration prizes too.
