In August 2018, UNIVERSAL ORLANDO RESORT will open its sixth property. Universal’s Aventura Hotel will feature 600 rooms, including 13 kids’ suites. The 16-story glass tower
will provide another value-priced option at Universal Orlando,
just steps away from all three theme parks. Aventura guests
will also enjoy early admission to The Wizarding World of Harry
Potter and Universal’s Volcano Bay, complimentary on-site
transportation, car rental facilities, complimentary Wi-Fi access
and a pool area with a kids’ splash zone and a fire pit.
Universal City Walk will be easily accessible via walking paths
and shuttles, and an on-site fast-casual food hall will offer five
cuisine options. Plus, Aventura features the destination’s first-
ever rooftop bar and grill with panoramic views of the parks.
“At Universal Orlando’s first and only rooftop bar, you can
watch Krakatau — the 200-foot-tall centerpiece of Universal’s
Volcano Bay — illuminate with blazing lava while enjoying
small plates and cocktails,” said Christina Heflin, public relations
representative for Universal Orlando Resort.
Guest bookings made before Sept. 30, for stays Aug. 1 to
Dec. 20, 2018, receive one $50 hotel dining credit per room for
four-plus nights and $100 for seven-plus nights. www.universal
