When it opens in the summer of 2016, guests
visiting the new Loews Sapphire Falls Resort at Universal Orlando
will walk into a colorful Caribbean hideaway built around a lush,
tropical lagoon and towering waterfall.
The new hotel, announced by Universal
Orlando Resort and Loews Hotels & Resorts, 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.
Inspired by the picturesque rivers and
waterfalls of the Caribbean, Loews Sapphire Falls will immerse
guests in a highly themed resort environment using traditional
island styling with modern touches. A resort-style pool with a
water slide, children’s play area, sand beach and fire pit will
help form a central courtyard and will be surrounded by the
hotel’s guest rooms. There will be water taxi and shuttle access
to all of the entertainment and dining options throughout
Universal Orlando Resort.
“We are excited to
continue our growth plans at Loews Hotels by building another
hotel with our long-standing partners at Universal Orlando,” said
Jonathan Tisch, Chairman of Loews Hotels & Resorts. “Loews
Sapphire Falls Resort will be every bit as distinctive as the
other four on-site hotels and will offer a new option to families
looking for a truly special Orlando vacation.”
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
