Cabana Bay Beach Resort

Universal Orlando’s fourth on-site hotel, Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort is 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, the Jack LaLanne Physical Fitness Studio, 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. © Universal Orlando Resort.

The Cabana Bay Beach Resort, a collaboration between Loews Hotels and Universal Studios Orlando, transports guests to a brightly colored, retro vacation destination. The nostalgic theming of the resort calls back to a sunny summerland from the 50’s and 60’s.

Cherrylake was tapped to transform the 38 acres into a playful, exciting landscape that immerses guests in the vibrance of Summer all year long by utilizing tropical plants and hundreds of palm trees. Along the way, Cherrylake worked closely with the owner-representative, listening to their concerns, proposing solutions, and collaborating to create high impact landscapes on this unique project site.
