The WRSA’s 62nd Annual Meeting will be held February 15 to 18, 2023, in Hilton Waikoloa Village in Big Island, Hawaii, one of the most beloved meeting spots among our members. Located on the sunny, scenic Kohala Coast, the oceanfront resort offers a taste of the island life full of culture, poolside relaxation, and a chance to meet marine wildlife up close. At Hilton Waikoloa Village, you can enjoy the magic of Hawaii, an oasis dotted with lagoons, pools, water slides, and a wide variety of restaurants and bars.
Our negotiated daily room rate is $239 plus applicable taxes and a $15 resort fee (reduced from $45 for our group). Compare our discounted rate to the regular daily room rate of $585 plus applicable taxes and a $45 resort fee. You will enjoy internet access in your room, free Hawaiian cultural classes, fitness and yoga classes at the Kohala Spa, and Keiki pool activities & Scavenger Hunt. Self- and Valet-parking are available on-site but fee-based. The hotel has agreed to honor our special room rate three days prior to and three days following our meetings (Feb 12th through Feb 20th), based on availability.
The room reservation can be made via this link or you can make a reservation by calling 808-886-1234 and asking for the Western Regional Science Association 2023 group rate.
Please note: after January 13, 2023, or as soon as our block fills, the hotel will no longer honor our special room rate! Be sure to book early!
