The Endless Summer was one of the quintessential movies of my youth. We loved the idea of never going back to reality, as we wasted away in a never ending paradise. Universal Orlando is making that dream a little bit closer to happening, as they unveil details on their all new Value Resort line. In 2020, Universal Orlando will unveil their seventh and eighth hotels with The Endless Summer Resort: Dockside Inns and Suites and Beachside Inns and Suites.
The two new resorts are currently being built on the site of the former Wet n Wild waterpark, and will feature everything you’ve come to expect from a Universal onsite hotel. Like every other Universal onsite hotel, the two new hotels will be operated and managed by Loews Hotels, so you know you’ll get a first class experience.
The two new hotels will feature shuttles to and from the parks and CityWalk, and early theme park entry for hotel guests during your stay.
The new hotels will also feature two bedroom suites in 1,450 of their rooms. That’s just over half of the rooms with enough space to sleep six people comfortably. The new suites will feature two separate bedrooms, a kitchenette and dining area, and a bathroom with a separate shower and vanity.
While each resort will share certain amenities, each one will have a different and unique feel, both capturing the carefree attitude of Endless Summer.
Like we said before, Endless Summer will be the start of Universal’s Value Resort category. Regular rooms will start as low as $73 dollars a night, and two bedroom suites will start at $111 dollars a night, making it an amazing value, with the extra amenities of a Universal Onsite hotel.
From the pictures, and concept art, the hotel has a very Cabana Bay Resort feel, which is one of our favorite onsite hotels, simply because of the fun of staying there. If the new Endless Summer is half as fun as Cabana Bay, then it’s going to be a great new addition to Universal.
While no opening date is set, we expect to see the new hotel booking as soon as the first half of 2020.
The new resorts will join the other six hotels, with Aventura Hotel slated to open this August.
