Peek inside the newest place to stay at Universal Orlando Resort.

Lazy days of sun-filled fun and a watery paradise on island time is the feeling you get when you arrive at Universal Orlando Resort's newest hotel: Loews Sapphire Falls Resort at Universal Orlando. The Caribbean-inspired property is the fifth onsite hotel with direct access to Universal Orlando Resort's two theme parks and brings a whole new world of tropical accommodations in Orlando designed around relaxing colors, tropical gardens and a waterfall centerpiece.

A leisurely stroll through the resort, with its island charm and modern touches, easily transports guests to a relaxing stay just steps away from the thrills and excitement of Universal Studios Florida and Universal Islands of Adventure theme parks.

The 1,000-room hotel offers both standard and family suites. Each room features a light and relaxed design with modern amenities and views of this tropical oasis.

The cool pool is an impressive 16,000-foot watery lagoon, the largest at Universal Orlando Resort, with zero-degree entry, sandy beach-style areas and a large water slide.

Dining is also an adventure around the hotel property, including their signature restaurant, Amatista Cookhouse™ at Loews Sapphire Falls Resort at Universal Orlando. Featuring Latin and Caribbean cuisine, Amatista also offers Universal Orlando Resort's newest character breakfast option.

In true island style, the hotel offers a unique rum bar, Strong Water Tavern. Directly off the main lobby, this lounge and restaurant serves a variety of vintage rum and tasty tapas with breathtaking views of the lush Universal Orlando Resort property.

The entire property is anchored by a rocky stream springing from the lagoon-style pool and leading to a multi-story waterfall that provides the picturesque, postcard moment for guests.

As with the now five onsite properties at Universal Orlando Resort, Sapphire Falls features free water taxis to Universal Orlando Resort's theme parks. Guests can also enjoy early park access and a variety of additional benefits.
