8 Ways to Live Your Most Tropical Life at Universal’s Volcano Bay
White sandy beaches, lush foliage, soothing waterfall sounds, warm sunny skies… these are just some of the main things you’ll get to experience on your tropical vacation to Universal’s Volcano Bay. Add in an unforgettable volcano view, sparkling lazy river, and a delicious umbrella drink—and I’d say you’ve found a slice of paradise right in the heart of Florida.
Here are 8 ways you can join us to live your most tropical life.
1. Overlook Paradise
Seriously, these views are absolutely amazing. Opening your curtains whisks you away to a tropical oasis when you stay in a Volcano Side Room in our newest towers at Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort.
TROPICAL TIP | In addition to standard rooms, you can book a two-bedroom suite and bring the entire family on your tropical getaway.
2. Stroll Right Into Volcano Bay
Staying at Cabana Bay or Universal’s Aventura Hotel gives you the option to take a short walk right to Volcano Bay, without having to drive or take a shuttle. These hotels are just steps away from the park, making it quick and easy to start a tropical day.
TROPICAL TIP | Set up your account on The Official Universal Orlando Resort App before heading to Volcano Bay so that all you’ll need is your room key and sunscreen, making it easier to pay for that tropical drink.
3. Wake Up to a Beautiful Sunrise
An awesome benefit of staying at a Universal Orlando hotel is being able to utilize Early Park Admission. With it, you and other hotel guests will be able to slide into the park a whole hour before it’s open to the public. If you were looking for a cool breeze as you bask in the early morning sun with the sound of nothing but rushing water, this is where you’ll find it.
TROPICAL TIP | Be sure to check the hours for Early Park Admission before setting your alarm.
4. Treat Yourself to a Relaxing Cabana
Lay back and relax in your own private cabana in paradise. A lot comes with a cabana, but all you need to know is that you’ll be pampered and taken care of while you’re taking in views like this.
TROPICAL TIP | Concierge service comes with the cabana, so food and drinks will be delivered directly to you.
5. Float, Relax and Drift Away
You’ve made it into the park and got yourself a chair to relax and bask in the sounds of the Krakatau waterfall. Now it’s time to let the water carry you away on the Kopiko Wai Winding River.
TROPICAL TIP | Don’t completely doze off, you don’t want to miss the magical night sky lit up within the Stargazer’s Cavern.
6. Grab a Tropical Drink (or Two)
Cap off your day in paradise with a fruity drink and a souvenir cup. Mmmmm!
TROPICAL TIP | Be sure to keep your cup for reduced prices on refills and an adorable souvenir.
7. Roll With the Waves at Waturi Beach
With the perfect waves at Waturi Beach, you can experience the warm waters of the tropics with the sounds of the iconic waterfall from the Krakatau Volcano towering above you.
TROPICAL TIP | Listen for the sound of a tribal gong signaling the next set of waves every 15 minutes.
8. Disappear Into the Wonders of Waterfall Cove
A truly hidden gem at Volcano Bay, tucked away in the corner of Krakatau is a mysterious little waterfall cove. This cove makes you feel as if you’ve been transported to an exclusive, exotic location.
TROPICAL TIP | Bring your waterproof phone case as this cove is one of the most picturesque grammable locations within the park.
