Loews Royal Pacific Resort at Universal Orlando 

Hawaiian life, Florida style

Shimmering waterfalls, swaying palm trees, and colourful orchids make this hotel the perfect antidote to riding rollercoasters at Universal Orlando’s thrilling theme parks.

The South Seas islands are reimagined at Loews Royal Pacific Resort, with lush landscaping and fragrant flowers bringing an essence of Polynesia to Orlando. The large lagoon pool, with its idyllic white-sand beach, is the resort's centrepiece and features Royal Bali Sea, an interactive water play area. Kitted-out private cabanas are available to hire for a relaxing pool day between theme parks. At weekends, linger longer for the poolside DJ from midday till 4 pm.

Why we love Loews Royal Pacific Resort at Universal Orlando

  • A weekly Hawaiian dinner show features a buffet of Polynesian favourites, live music, hula, and fire dancers.

  • Jurassic World fans will love the chance to sleep in a gyrosphere in the thoughtfully designed Kids’ Suites.

  • You’ll have complimentary Unlimited Express Unlimited for skipping the regular queues when you have a valid ticket. You’ll also be able to access The Wizarding World of Harry Potter before it opens to everyone else.

  • There are free boats and buses around Universal Orlando, and everything’s linked by paths if you want to get around on foot.

The Bula Bar & Grille is the place for poolside cocktails and bites with a tropical twist. Pan Asian dishes are served up at the Polynesian-themed Islands Dining Room, and the Orchid Court Lounge & Sushi Bar offers a taste of Japan. Other options include an all-American bar and a well-stocked lobby market.

Islands Dining Room
Open for a buffet and a la carte breakfast, then again at dinnertime, serving Pan-American dishes with options ‘from the fire’ and ‘from the wok’.

Jake’s American Bar
Named after a fabled South Sea explorer, this bar is a good place for a casual lunch and dinner, thanks to a substantial food menu alongside beers and cocktails.

Orchid Court Lounge & Sushi Bar
A delightful menu of sushi, sashimi and salads served alongside Japanese whiskeys and sake.

Tuk Tuk Market
A marketplace in the lobby, handy for picking up coffee, a quick breakfast, wok bowls, and lunch to-go.

Wantilan Luau
Book tickets for this weekly Hawaiian dinner show, where you can feast on the buffet while watching hula and fire dancers.

Make reservations for Wantilan Luau for an entertaining and memorable dinner show.

What's included

Room Only

Guests can use the Mandara Spa at the nearby Loews Portofino Bay Hotel, but for a workout on holiday, the resort has its own enormous gym with free weights and a wide range of cardio machines. There are also three jogging trails through the hotel and the wider Universal Orlando; the concierge can provide route maps.

The large lagoon-style pool has a sandy beach. Look out for organised pool activities for families, including pool basketball, arts and crafts, and hula hoop competitions. The Royal Bali Sea is an interactive water play area, and there are two hot tubs.

Given its location, it’s unsurprising that everything’s geared around families, with thoughtful consideration given to the room layouts, poolside activities, and the welcoming attitude across the restaurants. Fancy a family games night? The hotel can lend games out. And if you’re travelling with little ones, childproofing kits are available.

Supervised child care at Resort Kids Camp^ (open after 5pm daily)*.
