New Universal Resort Welcomes First Guests


Universal Orlando marked the opening of its fifth on-site hotel – Loews Sapphire Falls Resort – with a special, Caribbean-themed arrival celebration of its first guests. Cheering team members, a steel drum band, stilt walkers and a colourful burst of streamers inside the hotel’s lobby greeted the Fajardo family from Hollywood, Florida. The new Caribbean-inspired hotel brings the number of Universal Orlando on-site hotel rooms to 5,200. A destination within itself, Loews Sapphire Falls Resort is inspired by the scenic rivers and waterfalls of the Caribbean and immerses guests in a highly themed resort environment using traditional island styling and modern touches.
