Universal Orlando Resort is now accepting reservations for their upcoming Cabana Bay Beach Resort, which is set to open on March 31, 2014. The Courtyard Family Suites will open first starting on that date, followed by the Tower Family Suites on July 1, 2014.
The new hotel is the fourth hotel within Universal Orlando Resort and will evoke the classic, retro-feel of iconic beach resorts from the 1950s and ’60s. An area located around the North Courtyard will open first, followed later in 2014 by an area located around the South Courtyard. Each area will have a unique look and feel.
The hotel will also feature two zero-entry pools including a 100-foot water slide, a dive tower and even a lazy river. The two courtyards will share a two-story arrival building home to a food court serving traditional American classics along with an ever-changing selection of international cuisine, a 10-lane bowling alley, a game room and a fitness center.
North Courtyard (Reservations Being Accepted for Stays Beginning March 31, 2014)
The North Courtyard will feature four-story buildings with open corridors and direct access to guest rooms. Each of the 600, 430-square-foot suites will sleep up to six and include a fold-out foam bed, kitchenette, a sliding partition for privacy, two flat-screen TVs, and an extra-large bathroom with preparation spaces for three people at once.
South Courtyard (Opening Later in 2014)
The South Courtyard will also be inspired by the ’50s and ’60s, but will feature a tropical resort design around an 8,000-square-foot, zero-entry pool with a sand beach and a lazy-river complex. In addition to 300 suites, the towers will feature 900 guest rooms that are each 300-square-feet and that sleep four and include two queen beds and mini-fridge.
Rates begin at $119 per night for guest rooms and $174 per night for Family Suites (guests who stay longer will save more, with discounts up to 25 percent off per night.) Package rates are available with savings based on length-of-stay; a family of four can stay for seven nights for $47 per person, per-day – including accommodations and tickets to both Universal Orlando theme parks.
