Ok, so let’s get this out of the way first: Loews Sapphire Falls Resort at Universal Orlando Resort isn’t just pretty — it’s stunning. 

From the classy-modern architecture, to the incredibly convenient floor-plan that allows all 1000 rooms in the resort to have a beautiful view, Universal Orlando’s fifth hotel offering is by far the most intelligently crafted resort on property. To pack so much of what makes a resort demand-worthy into the land allotted for this project should be impossible. It’s absurd. But the proof is in the (tropical?) pudding, and Sapphire Falls proves the ultimate way to enjoy the perfect Universal Orlando escape.

But don’t take my word for it…let’s take a tour:

For guests interested in only checking out the room layout, I’ve got you covered:

The brand new Caribbean-inspired hotel brings the total 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. Guests can experience exceptional amenities and benefits that include:

  • Snapping a photo from a water taxi of the hotel’s dazzling lagoon waterfalls lit up at night, welcoming guests to an island paradise
  • Sliding down a water slide into the largest on-site pool at Universal Orlando Resort, complete with a children’s play area, two sand beaches and fire pit
  • Sampling innovative, Caribbean-inspired food including the signature mojo marinated rotisserie chicken at Amatista Cookhouse, open for breakfast, lunch and dinner
  • Taking a one-of-a-kind cocktail journey with a rum captain and sampling some of the 75 rums being poured in Strong Water Tavern
  • Easing into ‘island time’ in the tasteful, relaxed design of the hotel’s guest rooms and suites, and just outside awaits the excitement and adventure of two incredible theme parks
  • Enjoying Early Park Admission to the Universal Orlando theme parks one hour before the theme park opens, along with complimentary resort-wide transportation and other benefits

Here are some stills of the resort for you to drool over:

    Maybe I’ve been spoiled by Europa Park and Phantasialand, but I think Sapphire Falls looks horrid.

    The buildings look like cheap Spanish resort hotels and theming-wise it looks very bland and generic. The article mentions it is immersive and is highly-themed, but honestly, it really isn’t…

    THIS is immersive: (Hotel Colosseo)

    THIS is well themed: (Hotel Matamba)

    The rooms are a masterclass in mediocrity. The furniture looks like it’s from IKEA, not the Caribbean. The décor looks like an airport hotel, not the Caribbean. It just looks like every other boring hotel in the world.

    At least Cabana Bay others honest accommodation and doesn’t position itself as premium accommodation. Nothing about Sapphire Falls looks to justify the cost. I hope at least the bars and restaurants make up for the identikit architecture, lobby, pool area and rooms, because at least then it will add at least some value to the resort rather than appearing to just be a quick fix for Universal’s hotel capacity problem.

    I’m such a huge fan of Universal and pretty much everything they have touched lately has turned to gold, but to say this hotel is immersive or highly themed is an exaggeration at best, and misleading at worst. It looks about as exciting as tofu.
