Dyah Purwati

Washington, District of Columbia Travel Agent

An independent agent with Nexion, LLC in Irving, TX, a Travel Leaders Network affiliate agency

Luxury and Group Travel Planner

I worked for the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company for 18 years prior to assuming the role of a Travel Planner. Fifteen of those years were in leadership and executive roles, where I acquired experiences in providing the highest level of customer service to most discerning clients. We're required to be very detail oriented and resourceful to perform a job well done. I have the insight knowledge of the hospitality operations, which resulted in a unique perspective in finding my ways to make you happy.

My experience in the luxury hotel industry was also heavily involved in the planning and execution of many groups. This is a great advantage in my current role as a Travel Planner, especially when negotiating group rates and benefits for my clients.

I lived the first 23 years of my life on Bali Island, Indonesia, where I obtained a bachelor degree in Tourism Management that focuses on management of a travel agency, airline and world destinations. 

Bali certainly's beautiful, but I always wanted to see the rest of the world. Therefore, I relocated to Washington DC in 2000 and caught the travel bugs. Now, my family and I have visited 20 countries via several cruises, packaged tours, all inclusive, and on our own. We stayed in various types of accommodations ranging from luxury to limited services. Our favorite destinations are:

  • Bali & Yogyakarta (both in Indonesia)
  • Italy
  • Paris
  • The Caribbean
  • Singapore and Krabi, Thailand

As you see, I've acquired a unique set of skills and knowledge from my lengthy career in the luxury hotel industry, and I've collected experiences from all the places I've lived and visited.

Let me know your travel expectations, preference and budget. I'll utilize my skills, knowledge and experiences to ensure that the planning of your trip is done to your satisfaction. So, all that you have to do is enjoy your trip.

I'm your personal travel concierge. Let me help you make great memories!

Amazing trips!!!!!!!

Reviewed By Kliby24 - Washington DC | Traveled to Caribbean Sea ~ At Sea ~ At Sea
I have been using Dyah from Sunia Travel for a couple years now. All of my vacations which covers 5 or 6 cruises have been book through Dyah. She is always attentive to what I am looking for out of a cruise to make sure she finds the best options. She always provides me with options, both for dates when I am flexible, also for ships, types of cabins. She always knows which companies are offering differing itineraries, deals and always makes sure I know all of the information i need to make the best decision. I never have any question that she is always out looking for me, and all of her clients have the best vacation and travel experience for for my/their needs. She also always follows up with me to see how my trip was, which makes me feel like she really cares about how all of her clients enjoy their trips. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone!!!!!!!!!

Family Vacations made easy!

Reviewed By Ruiz Clark Family - Boston, MA | Traveled to Alaska ~ USA
Dyah from Sunia Travel has planned our last two family vacations. They were both flawless!! Recently we went to Vancouver, then a cruise thru Alaska and 3 more nights in Alyeska, Alaska with my whole family! 6 adults, 2 teenagers and our Son! We had an amazing time because we didn't have to think about the details. The website she created for our trip had all the information we needed conveniently in one place. Can't wait to plan the next one.

Flawless Carrebean cruise for mom

Reviewed By Svetlana - Washington DC | Traveled to
Dyah helped organizing a Carribean cruise for my mother and her sister. I wanted this trip to be as thought through as possible, with all the details taken care of, as my mom and her sister did not speak any English. Dyah provided exceptional help from advising us on the ship and type of room to making sure they have everything they need during travel such as credit for additional services, excursions etc. My mom was very happy, they had awsome time! Everything was just flawless. I would definitely refer to Dyah when palnning next trip for my family.

Dyah made a perfect birthday gift possible for us!

Reviewed By Manet - Washington DC | Traveled to
We had a general idea in mind for a family trip for our son's birthday but couldn't fit all we thought we wanted into our budget. Then we contacted Dyah! She understood just what we were looking for immediately and began to send us great options within (or even less than) our budget. We ended up with an all-inclusive package at a fabulous price. Dyah made this trip easy and totally stress free. Will absolutely be contacting her before making any future travel plans.

Travel planning made easy!

Reviewed By Anthony - Arlington, VA | Traveled to
In this age of the Internet, I'm used to booking my own travel arrangements. In fact, this was the first time that I've ever used a travel agent. Dyah and her company (Sunia Travel) exceeded my expectations! She carefully listened to all of my requests regarding flights, a hotel, and a rental car. She then made a travel package that exactly matched my needs for my first trip to Hawaii. Dyah even remembered things that I had forgotten about, such as booking me on my favorite airline! The price for the travel package was within my budget and there was no pressure to purchase any add-ons that I didn't want. Dyah is extremely organized, very patient, and available to answer any questions. Using Sunia Travel was definitely easier than booking everything myself!

Dyah was amazing, she helped take the stress out of organizing a large group of busy women for a special Girls Weekend in DC. She was ever-patient; followed up on all requests expeditiously; made herself available to me late at night. When our plans changed last minute, Dyah made the impossible come true! I will definitely use her services again, and have recommended her to several friends.
