Universal Orlando Resort and Loews Hotels & Resorts have announced that Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort is about to undergo a big expansion.
The retro-themed property will add 400 new guestrooms in a new expansion that is scheduled to open in 2017. The rooms will be in two additional towers at the south end of the property, adjacent to the Continental and Americana guest towers.
Select rooms in the new towers will offer views of Universal’s Volcano Bay -- the resort's third park that is also set to open in 2017.
In terms of amenities, Cabana Bay guests can enjoy two zero-entry pools, a waterslide, a lazy river, a 10-lane bowling alley and more. As of now the hotel has 900 existing standard guest rooms and 900 existing family suites. The family suite is a room option that sleeps up to six people and includes two queen size beds, a full-size pull-out sofa, a kitchenette area, a sliding partition for privacy, two flatscreen TVs and a compartmentalized bathroom with preparation spaces for three people at once.
Cabana Bay guests also get exclusive benefits only available to on-site hotel guests at Universal Orlando, including Early Park Admission one hour before the theme parks open and complimentary transportation to and from Universal Orlando’s two theme parks and Universal CityWalk.
Additional information will be available in the future.
