    Guests can now book reservations forUniversal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort, the new, 1800-room hotel at Universal Orlando Resort that will feature value-priced guest rooms and moderately priced family suites.

    The hotel is scheduled to open in early 2014 - with reservations now being accepted for stays beginning on March 31, 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 60’s. 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.

    Families will have two options for experiencing the hotel – a value-priced standard guest room or a moderately priced, 430-square-foot family suite that sleeps six. From the moment they arrive, they will be surrounded by the hotel’s bold design, period colors, neon and retro feel. When complete, there will be two pool complexes with sand beach and interactive features, a themed lazy river experience and 10-lane bowling alley. Family suite rates will begin at $174 per-night; standard room rates will begin at $119 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.

    “We believe Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort will offer an experience unlike any other in Central Florida,” said Alice Norsworthy, executive vice president of marketing and sales at Universal Orlando Resort. “And at the same time, it will create an entirely new, value-driven option for families that want to stay within the Universal Orlando Resort.”

    As with all Resort hotels, guests at Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort will be just a brief walk from Universal Orlando’s theme parks and Universal CityWalk. They will enjoy benefits that include Early Theme Park Admission, complimentary shuttle bus transportation to the theme parks and Universal CityWalk, complimentary delivery of merchandise purchased throughout the resort to their hotel and resort-wide charging privileges with their room key. Guests can upgrade to one of Universal Orlando’s three deluxe hotels for additional benefits – including complimentary Universal Express Unlimited ride access. Those hotels are Loews Portofino Bay, the Hard Rock Hotel and Loews Royal Pacific Resort.

    Each of Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort’s Courtyards will have a unique design and atmosphere. They will share a highly themed, two-story arrival building that will also be home to a food court serving traditional American classics along with an ever-changing selection of international cuisine, a 10-lane “retro” bowling alley, a game room and a fitness center.

    North Courtyard (Reservations Being Accepted for Stays Beginning March 31, 2014)
    First to open, the North Courtyard and its 600 family suites will be inspired by the sweeping motor courts of the 1950s and 60s. It 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.
    The suite buildings will surround a more than 10,000-square-foot, zero-entry pool with a 100-foot water slide, waterfall features and 4,000-square-foot interactive play area. Cabanas will be available to guests for rent, and lounge chairs will ring the deck, backed by zones for sunning, game playing, picnicking and relaxing on the grass.


    South Courtyard (Opening Later in 2014)
    The South Courtyard will also be inspired by the 50s and 60s, but with an entirely different feel. The South Courtyard will feature a colorful, tropical resort design with serpentine, seven-story towers flowing like waves around a massive pool and lazy-river complex.
    A more than 8,000-square-foot, zero-entry pool with a 6,000-square-foot sand beach will offer plenty of entertainment options, including the first lazy river at Universal Orlando Resort, a 700-foot-long feature offering multiple interactive zones. 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.

    $174 for a family suite isn't bad at all considering all of the benefits you get for staying on-site at Universal.

    ^ As of right now, early entry to Potterland, Front of the line access and I think there are others. I'm sure Eric knows more.

    Well Cabana Bay Beach will not include complimentary Express Pass. But it is close, and you will get early entrance to the parks.

    And there might be some other cool stuff rolled out in the near future.

    Apparently, Loews Portofino Bay, the Hard Rock Hotel and Loews Royal Pacific Resort are the other three hotels which DO give you more benefits. Are these hotels in the same ball park, price wise?

    Second question, since the above mentioned properties are operated by hotel companies, my question is who owns and operates this new Cabana Bay Beach Resort?

    Is Universal in the business of operating hotels?

    Re: Cabana Bay Beach Resort NOW accepting reservations! TODAY!

    Universal Orlando's three existing hotels are owned by a joint-venture in which Loews holds a 50 percent stake and Universal has a 25 percent share. The remaining 25 percent is owned by the Seminole Tribe of Florida, which owns the Hard Rock brand. That joint venture invested more than $580 million in the first three hotels, according to regulatory filings

    Thanks for the update Eric. Will definatly have to stay there one day. Makes you wonder that Universal have to increase the number of hotel rooms at their resort because of the awsome updates that are having at the moment. They will want to get most of their visitors staying at their resort instead of traveling from WDW. I know where I wil be staying when I visit the resort...
    The new Star Wars plot summery:

    Episode 7: Luke discovers that Darth Vader is not his father, and goes on a search for his real father

    Episode 8: Darth Vader is resurrected and goes on Jerry Springer, claiming he is Luke and Leia's father

    Episode 9: Princes Leia is not Luke's sister, making him furious (we all know why...).
