Custom furniture pieces make use of leather strapping details, metal corner guards, buckles and rivets, all elements found in vintage luggage, steamer trunks and majestic steamships. A focal point in the new rooms is the accent wall, where a custom graphic creates an art moment showcasing the flora, fauna and native motifs of the South Seas.
The 1,000-room hotel is located a short walk, complimentary water taxi, or shuttle bus ride away from both parks. Guests can also enjoy exceptional cuisine in many restaurants and lounges, complimentary Wi-Fi, a weekly luau dinner and show, and a lagoon-style swimming pool with private cabanas.
This renovation has been going on for months now, with pictures scatted on the web. Does this announcement mean all rooms are completed?
Did you ever consider that the fact that Uni hotels don't have balconies is what helps make them pet friendly?
The Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal has a limited number of rooms with balconies. It is a wonderful hotel and our absolute favorite.
Doesn't register tranquility with me, and not much in the way of 'pacific' let alone south pacific/ Polynesian. Just seems forced and unnatural. These are all nice resorts though and in the end its more about what's outside than inside.
Thanks for sharing - the rooms look nice. I stayed there last summer and had a great stay! 👍
reading about pet friendly rooms ... i hope after paying over £215 a night i don't get one that has had a dog or any other animal in it
Pet friendly: its what Motel 6 is for.
I have to agree with the anonymous poster @ 6:45pm
The original room design ( we visited only a few months after the RP opened ) had a real Polynesian feel to it. Complete with complimentary leis and fruit platter it had true Pacific overtones.
The new deign looks cool and contemporary which , in itself , is no bad thing. However the Pacific feel might have been compromised by this and the RP may have lost it's identity somewhat.
