Universal Orlando Resort and Loews Hotels & Resorts have announced plans for a new onsite hotel at Universal Orlando, the Loews Sapphire Falls Resort.
The new Caribbean-themed property, which will open in summer 2016, will be located across Adventure Way from the new Cabana Bay Beach Resort. It will become the destination’s fifth resort hotel and its 1,000 rooms, including 77 suites, will bring the number of on-site hotel rooms at Universal Orlando to 5,200.
The new hotel will also offer a resort-style pool with a water slide, children’s play area, sand beach and fire pit in a central courtyard surrounded by the hotel's guestrooms. There will be water taxi and shuttle access to all of the entertainment and dining options throughout Universal Orlando Resort.
The new hotel will be full service. Amenities will include Early Park Admission to Universal’s theme parks, a full-service restaurant with scenic views and outdoor dining, a themed lobby lounge, poolside bar and grill, quick-service marketplace, valet service and a fitness center. Booking information and pricing will be announced at a later date.
