I have stayed at my fair share of hotels and resorts throughout the years, and have to say that none combine family fun with peaceful tranquility better than Loews Royal Pacific Resort at Universal Orlando. I was recently hosted by Loews Royal Pacific Resort during for a media event.
During my 3 night stay at the resort, Loews Royal Pacific provided the perfect setting to rest and relax, after a fun day at the parks.
As you cross over the shaded bamboo bridge into the lobby of Loews Royal Pacific, you’ll instantly begin to feel like you’ve been transported to the South Pacific. Those first steps into the resort lead you to a serene orchid and water garden courtyard where flowers are always in bloom.
Featuring 1,000 rooms and suites, Loews Royal Pacific Resort infuses the spirit of ‘Aloha’ into the guest experience. Swaying palm trees, lush landscaping, fountains and exquisite wood carvings all lend to the beauty and tranquility of the hotel.
Peace and Tranquility
Being a person who values her quiet time, I was quite impressed with the many cozy, tucked away places where a person could enjoy a good book, get a little work done, or just listen to the fountains.
Comfortable Guest Rooms
Beautifully appointed guest rooms, are a relaxing oasis at the start and end of the day. A lovely orchid wall mural really set the room apart from anywhere I have stayed previously. Tech lovers and families will appreciate the functionality of the rooms which contain a large flat screen television, mini refrigerator, and an abundance of electrical outlets and USB ports.
As part of its integration with Universal Orlando Resort, the hotel offers Jurassic Park-themed kids suites. These two-room suites include a room for the adults, plus a separate room for the kids featuring raptor‟s cage headboards, custom wall murals, artwork from the movies and Jurassic Park-themed furniture.
World Class Dining
Dining experiences at Loews Royal Pacific Resort include a weekly Polynesian luau, a lobby sushi bar, Pan Asian cuisine from Islands Dining Room, 24-hour room service, Bula Bar & Grille (poolside eatery) and Emeril’s Tchoup Chop. Every Sunday, Jake’s hosts a reservation character breakfast where guests can meet some of their favorite Universal Orlando characters.
Since this is a family resort, child menus are available. Also, fun books with crayons to keep kids entertained at the table.
The hotel’s award winning culinary team hosts a beer dinner series and two annual beer festivals, pairing select craft beers with inventive cuisine.
Pictured above is one of many tasty treats I enjoyed at the resort. I enjoyed this mouth-watering key lime dessert outside on the patio at Jake’s. It was divine!
