Universal Orlando opens Sapphire Falls Resort, its fifth hotel
July 14, 2016, 10:49 AM ·
Universal Orlando Resort officially opened its fifth on-site hotel to guests this morning.
The Loews Sapphire Falls Resort is located between the Royal Pacific and Cabana Bay — both physically and in terms of price and amenities. The Caribbean-themed hotel offers 1,000 guest rooms, including 83 suites, and, like the Royal Pacific, is connected to CityWalk and the theme parks by the resort's free water taxi service.
However, like the Cabana Bay, Universal Express Unlimited passes are not included with your room, though guests can enjoy early access to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter each morning. The Sapphire Falls includes Universal Orlando's largest single hotel pool, as well as four restaurants: Amatista Cookhouse, Drhum Club Kantine, New Dutch Trading Co., and Strong Water Tavern and convention meeting space.

Rooms rates will start between $119-176 per night, depending upon season. The addition of the 1,000-room Loews Sapphire Falls Resort brings Universal Orlando's on-site room inventory to 5,200 across five hotels, with planning for a sixth hotel underway.
