9 Unexpected Resort Hotel Experiences
There are so many unique things to experience when you stay at Universal Orlando Resort. After spending all day plunging down water rides at Universal’s Volcano Bay, experiencing unique themed lands at Universal’s Islands of Adventure or riding out the movies at Universal Studios Florida, you can keep the excitement going, right at your hotel!
Here are 9 experiences you won’t want to miss when you stay at one of our resort hotels.
1. Waking Up to a Volcano
There are no words to describe how truly epic the view of Volcano Bay is in the “hottest” room at Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort, the Volcano Side Rooms. Imagine waking up RIGHT next to Krakatau!
2. Rocking Out with a Guitar
You can become a rock star for a day and learn to play guitar RIGHT inside your hotel room by choosing from 20 different guitars at Hard Rock Hotel Orlando (A refundable deposit and loan agreement is required). If guitar isn’t quite your style, you can even rent a turntable and jam to 10 iconic records.
3. Epic Fire Dancers
Could you imagine throwing around fire as easy as this guy?! He’s one of the many performers in our Wantilan Luau show at Loews Royal Pacific Resort. The Wantilan Luau takes place every Saturday evening.
4. Bowling Inside Your Hotel
Did you know you can bowl at Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort? We have a ten lane bowling alley right inside the hotel, complete with food and drink service.
5. This Delicious Gelato
You’ve made your way to the seaside village of Portofino, Italy at Loews Portofino Bay Hotel. Now that you’re here, the gelato is truly a must-have and it’s made with a secret Italian recipe
6. More Than 100 Rums at Strong Water Tavern
Take a cruise with one of our rum captains at Strong Water Tavern at Loews Sapphire Falls Resort. Want more than a rum experience? Strong Water Tavern offers a tapas-style menu and all types of drinks to quench your thirst.
7. A Lazy River at Your Hotel
Looking for a little relaxation after a day in the parks? Grab an inner tube and float around our lazy river at Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort. But if you’re looking for a more thrilling adventure, you can head over to Volcano Bay on a special walking path. . Tip: Even if you aren’t staying at Cabana Bay, pool hopping is allowed!
8. This Sound System…Underwater
At Hard Rock Hotel Orlando you can literally rock out to your favorite songs underwater. It’s awesome to hear a song playing as you go down the slide and plunge into the pool as the beats keep going.
9. The Best Kind of Taxi
One of my favorite benefits of staying at Loews Portofino Bay, Hard Rock Hotel, Loews Royal Pacific or Loews Sapphire Falls is being able to hop onto a water taxi to get from your hotel to Universal CityWalk. It’s basically a ride before you get into the parks!
No matter which hotel you decide to choose for your next vacation to Universal Orlando Resort, be sure to look out for the all the little details that make these hotels truly spectacular.
