Loew's Sapphire Falls Resort - Opening Summer 2016

Just when you think Universal Orlando Resort can't get any 'cooler"; they prove you wrong. This morning, September 9th, Universal Orlando Resort announced a new expansion project to be completed in summer 2016.

The NEW Loew's Sapphire Falls Resort will add an additional 1000 rooms to Universal Orlando Resort (including 77 suites), bringing the number of on-site rooms to a whopping 5,200. 


The new resort will be located just across Adventure Way from the Cabana Bay Beach Resort, and will become the 5th on-site resort at the rapidly expanding theme park resort complex. If you want picture-spots, Sapphire Falls will provide you with some of the most prestine waters, picturesque rivers, and cascading waterfalls outside of the Caribbean. This will truly be a fully immersive themed resort environment with island flair, and Caribbean tradition.

The resort complex will boast a sand beach, fire pit, resort pool complete with water slide, and a children's play area will form a central courtyard surrounded by the luxurious guest rooms. Water taxi and shuttle service will be available to transport guests to/from the iconic theme parks, and entertainment & dining that CityWalk offers. 

"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."
