Universal Orlando Announces Plans for Loews Sapphire Falls Resort to Open 2016

Loews Sapphire Falls Resort

In the summer of 2016, the new Loews Sapphire Falls Resort is set to open, and it will become the fifth resort on Universal Orlando property.

Featuring a Caribbean theme, the new hotel will be another partnership hotel between Universal and Loews Hotels & Resorts. It will be located next to the new Cabana Bay Beach Resort, which opened this year.

Inspired by the picturesque rivers and waterfalls of the Caribbean, Loews Sapphire Falls will offer 1,000 guest rooms and suites, along with amenities like a resort-style pool with a water slide, children’s play area, sand beach and fire pit, 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.

Guests staying at the hotel will also have access to Early Park Admission to Universal’s theme parks, and water taxi access to neighboring Loews Royal Pacific Resort and the Universal Parks and CityWalk.

“Our guests repeatedly tell us that our Universal Orlando on-site hotels provide them a completely immersive vacation experience from the moment they enter our hotels and are transported to another place,” said Tom Williams, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Universal Parks & Resorts. “We look forward to bringing them yet another incredibly themed experience with the opening of Loews Sapphire Falls Resort.”

Reservations for this full service hotel may be accepted as early as Spring 2015. More information as we get it.
