Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort is expanding the retro-themed get-away with two new towers, bringing the the room total of the entire resort to a total of 2,200. One of the towers, Beachside, is now open to the public with the other tower, Bayside, scheduled to open some time next year.


The two new towers combined will add 400 additional guest rooms to the south end of the popular resort. Located at the end of the Continental and Americana buildings of Cabana Bay, many of the rooms in the new tower feature stellar views of the new Volcano Bay water park.

Standard rooms, like those found in the main buildings of the resort, are the vast majority of the rooms found in Beachside tower with 180 of them in total. The remaining 20 rooms are actually two-bedroom/two-bathroom suites that also provide a full-sized living area with kitchenette.

The well-appointed accommodations bring all the endearing details of the traditional rooms such as the cheerful color palate and retro-inspired furnishings, but there are a few extra accents that set these rooms apart and designate them as “Rooms with a View.”

Be sure to look for the nods to Volcano Bay throughout the space like artwork that spotlights a few tikis and an oceanic landscape.

The primary bathroom has a split design with toilet and sink in a separate room from the shower, enabling larger groups to make use of their space and time with greater efficiency.

Rooms at the Beachside Tower at Cabana Bay Resort range in price from $200-$500 per night. Check with the Universal Orlando website to make your reservations online.
