Universal Orlando To Open New Resort: Sapphire Falls

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

A few years ago we had the opportunity to take the kids to Universal Orlando. It was an incredible trip and we all had so much fun. The parks themselves were amazing and full of incredible thrill rides and cute, creative kids lands as well. One of the things that made the trip even more enjoyable was that we could walk or take a water taxi to the parks from our resort every day. We stayed at Loews Royal Pacific. It was a beautiful hotel and the pool was wonderful.

Not only was the location convenient but guests of this on-site Universal Orlando hotel receive a number of fun benefits including skipping the regular lines with the Universal Express Unlimited Ride Access and more.

It was a memorable trip and we all had so much fun that we still talk about it years later. We agreed that whenever we get the chance to go back we’ll definitely be staying in an on-site hotel again. That’s why I was excited to learn that Universal and Loews Hotels & Resorts announced a new hotel for Universal Orlando!

The new hotel will be called Sapphire Falls Resort. I love that name! It sounds so exotic and like a dream vacation destination.

Universal Sapphire FallsSapphire Falls Resort will be Caribbean themed complete with a lagoon and waterfall. There will also be a resort style pool with a children’s play area, waterslide, sand beach, and fire pit.

The resort will be located across Adventure Way from the new Cabana Bay Resort and there will be water taxi and shuttle access to all of the entertainment and dining options throughout Universal Orlando Resort.

It will feature 1,000 rooms and suites and guests will enjoy Early Park Admission to Universal’s theme parks, a themed lobby lounge, a poolside bar and grill, full service restaurant with scenic views and outdoor dining and more.

Sapphire Falls Resort will open in the summer of 2016 and booking information and pricing will be announced at a later date.

It looks amazing and I can’t wait to learn more and to start saving up for a fun family trip!

  7. That looks like a great resort! I saw that they had opened Cabana Bay last time we were there, but this one looks more high end.
