Universal Orlando's Cabana Bay Beach Resort  is Officially Open!
Who said you have to pay extra for retro?
Universal Orlando Resort's Cabana Bay Beach Resort is now officially welcoming guests. Here's all the reasons why we love this new retro - chic Universal resort!

Cabana Bay Beach Resort

On the 31st March 2014, Universal Orlando celebrated the grand opening of its fourth resort hotel,  Cabana Bay Beach Resort. Welcoming the first ever famaily to walk through the doors of this retro chic hotel were none other than Despicable Me's Gru and his minions! Don't you just love this resort already?

There's more still! The Cabana Bay Beach Resort's design has been inspired by the iconic beach resorts from the 1950s and 60s and you'll see references to this iconic era throughout the entire resort, from the architecture and interior design right down to the entertainment. We all know that Universal are masters of immersion, think Wizarding World of Harry Potter,  and this  fully immersive resort will have you believe you're starring in your very own 1950's movie or that Marilyn Monroe will appear around the next corner at any second! 

The moderately  priced Cabana Bay Beach Resort gives theme park holiday makers the chance to enjoy all the luxuries of staying in a theme park hotel without the luxury price tag. 

Here's all the reasons to love this retro - chic resort!


1. First and foremost - it's moderately priced! Which makes it easier for you to budget for those all important Universal Orlando tickets.


2. It's 1950's themed! Think Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, Audrey Hepburn eat your heart out!

5. There's a gym called the Jack Lalanne Fitness Centre - also 1950s inspired.  Jack Lalanne was a 1950s fitness icon, known as the 'Godfather of Fitness'!
