Universal Orlando opened the next chapter in their quest to grow their share of the vacation market. Cabana Bay Beach Resort, the first value hotel at Universal, celebrated its very first guests to check-in today, March 31. The Hicks family of St. Petersburg, Fla. received a grand welcome and VIP experiences including a complimentary hotel stay, a special tour of the property with Adnan Bizri, managing director of Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort, and Russ Dagon, vice president and executive project director at Universal Creative, a VIP Tour of Universal Orlando’s two theme parks – Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure – and more.
Now open, the retro-inspired hotel features incredible amenities for endless family fun including a 10,000 sq. ft. zero-entry pool with iconic dive tower waterslide, 10-lane bowling alley, family suites that sleep up to six and much more.
This summer, guests will be able to enjoy even more family fun, including a second 8,000-square-foot zero entry pool, Universal Orlando’s first lazy river at an on-site hotel, The Hideaway Bar & Grill, and additional moderately-priced family suites and value-priced standard guest rooms.
