Loews Hotels & Resorts plans to open the Loews Sapphire Falls Resort at Universal Orlando in the summer of 2016.
The new hotel will be across Adventure Way from the new Cabana Bay Beach Resort and will mark the destination’s fifth resort hotel. 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 Caribbean, Loews Sapphire Falls will feature traditional island styling with modern touches. A resort-style pool with a water slide, children’s play area, sand beach, and firepit will help form a central courtyard and will be surrounded by the hotel’s guestrooms.
“We are excited to continue our growth plans at Loews Hotels by building another hotel with our long-standing partners at Universal Orlando,” says 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.”
