After receiving an invitation on or around January 9, 2020, all qualifiers planning to attend must complete an RSVP form (one per qualified account). The link will be included in the invitation email. Once complete, OPTAVIA will book, on your behalf, your hotel room at Grand Hyatt Baha Mar for the dates of the Trip (April 19-24, 2020). The deadline to RSVP is Thursday, January 23, 2020.

Yes! Children and family members are welcome to join us in the Bahamas! Adding anyone above the two (2) individuals covered by OPTAVIA as part of the Trip (Coach & Co-Applicant/Guest) may be done upon receiving the hotel confirmation email, which will be sent 1-2 business days following the approval of the RSVP form submission. Since the occupant capacity varies between the room type (maximum of 2 or 4), it is very important to add any additional guests you are bringing with you to your room reservation. Please call the housing center’s phone number provided in the hotel confirmation email to modify and add others to your room reservation. Note that there is an additional charge per person, plus tax per night, that will be at the responsibility of the Coach.

Yes! Coaches are able to extend their stay, at their cost, based on hotel availability. Rooms three (3) days pre-/post-event are at the group rate and on a first come, first served basis. During the RSVP process, please indicate if you are interested in extending your stay and a booking agent will contact you to process (note: a US$25 convenience fee will be charged at the time of the transaction).

Yes, OPTAVIA is allowing attendees to upgrade their room based on availability. The difference in cost between the two room types will be at the attendee’s expense, which will be communicated at the time of booking.
