2. Pump Some Iron at Our Fitness Facilities
Our on-site hotels offer amazing amenities, from complimentary transportation across the destination to Early Park Admission. Yet, the best amenity for guests looking to sneak in a workout is the complimentary fitness facilities.
Our fitness centers offer a wide range of exercise equipment including strength training equipment, treadmills, exercise bikes, stair masters, elliptical machines and many more. Each on-site hotel includes a fitness facility so you can break a sweat no matter where you choose to stay.
3. Enjoy Our Swimming Pools while Mastering Water Aerobics
Swimming is a great way to work out your entire body while on vacation. Each of our on-site hotels have swimming pools where you can work out while working on your tan.
Choose between white sand lagoons at Loews Royal Pacific Resort, or exploring the 16,000-square-foot pool at Loews Sapphire Falls Resort, or any of the other hotels. Because when you say on-site, you’re welcome at all the hotel pools, so pick your favorite and dive in.
4. Travel by Foot to the Attractions While Taking in the Scenery
Many of our attractions are accessible by foot when staying at one of our on-site hotels. You can enjoy the lush tropical landscape while walking to Universal CityWalk from Loews Portofino Bay Hotel, traveling from Universal’s Cabana Bay Resort to Universal’s Volcano Bay, or just enjoying a stroll on the walking paths.
The walking paths at the on-site hotels are perfect for a jog and marked with mile markers so you can easily keep track of your progress. Here’s a map of the jogging trails that you can download for your upcoming visit.
Once in the parks, you can keep burning those calories while making your way to your favorite attractions. It’s estimated that the average theme-park-goer walks more than five miles per day.
5. Decompress with a Spa Day
Staying physically fit is important, but vacations are the perfect opportunity to work on your mental health as well. A day at our spa promises blissful renewal, so come and unwind at the Mandara Spa at Loews Portofino Bay Hotel.
Indulge in pampering skin care, wraps, body treatments, massages, nail care and hair care. Each of our on-site hotels also has sauna facilities to destress after a workout. Enjoy this tranquil retreat and leave the rest of the world behind.
