A Sneak Peek At Loews Sapphire Falls Resort
The opening of Loews Sapphire Falls Resort, at the Universal Orlando Resort, is only a few weeks away, and we are sharing a sneak peek at the new Resort.
The Universal Orlando Blog described the resort as…
From cascading waterfalls and massive stone turrets to vintage rum and fresh ceviche, we’ve always been drawn to the history and allure of the Caribbean. Imagine, in the middle of a secluded island, we stumble upon a winding river leading to a beautiful, sapphire-blue swimming hole surrounded by ancient stone ruins and dense palms – the perfect environment to reshape into your exclusive island hideaway.
Upon completion the Loews Sapphire Falls Resort will have1,000 guest rooms, including 83 suites, the largest resort pool at Universal Orlando, with a waterslide, two sand beaches, fire pit and a children’s play area, several unique dining experiences, an immersive rum bar with more than 75 different rums from across the Caribbean, and so much more.
And I am really excited to share the images that Loews and the Universal Orlando Resort have shared!
Loews Sapphire Falls Resort rooms are inspired by the adventurous spirit and exotic destinations of the Golden Age of Travel, and the new look captures the tranquil serenity and bold heritage that embodies the spirit of the islands.
“Our new rooms are vibrant and luxurious, evoking the romance of traveling to the South Pacific” says Complex Managing Director Barb Bowden. “Combined with an extensive upgrade and renovation to the bathrooms, it is an entirely new room product for our guests to experience.”
The color palette was inspired by the islands, with sandy neutrals punctuated with hints of turquoise and tangerine reminiscent of sand, water and flowers. If you look closely, you will see that the custom furniture pieces make use of leather strapping details, metal corner guards, buckles and rivets, which are all nods to vintage luggage, steamer trunks, and majestic steamships.
The sparkling 16,000 square foot resort pool at Sapphire Falls draws inspiration from Caribbean Sea, and is the largest at the Universal Orlando Resort!
The Sapphire Falls pool is also unique in design, because it has random and slightly varying depths to mimic the sea floor.
Surrounded by sandy beaches and palm trees, this pool looks like the perfect place to cool off after a day in the Universal Orlando parks!
Food & Beverage
A highlight of any vacation is indulging in food, and Sapphire Falls is no exception with four new dining options at the Resort.
Today we are sharing a peek at Amatista Cookhouse and the Strong Water Tavern.
The Amatista Cookhouse features Caribbean cuisine prepared in an exhibition kitchen that will be open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The restaurant will offer waterfront dining with indoor, outdoor and private seating options.
With a rum captain as your guide, the Strong Water Tavern sounds like it will be a go-to stop for adult visitors to Sapphire Falls. The lounge, open for lunch and dinner, will have a wall of vintage rums, a unique ceviche bar, and a patio overlooking the lagoon that will offer daily rum tastings.
You can book your stay at Sapphire Falls now, and there is even a limited-time offer that includes a free dining credit in addition to the other amenities you receive for staying at the resort.
