Now Open: Everything You Need to Know About Universal’s New Aventura Hotel

Are your clients ready for a new adventure? We’re ready to make it happen! On August 16, we opened the front doors of Universal’s Aventura Hotel to our first guests.

I’ve always thought of the hotel experience as a journey, and I think your clients are going to love it here. From our sleek lobby to the pool deck to the guest rooms, bars and restaurants, everything has been designed to appeal to today’s traveler. What makes the journey through Aventura Hotel so special? For me, it’s many factors, but perhaps the three that stand out the most are the views, the food and drinks, and my team.

The Views

Whether they’re in a guest room or at Bar 17 Bistro, this hotel offers some of the most spectacular views of any hotel I’ve ever seen. Look one way and you’ll see Universal’s Volcano Bay (be sure to use our dedicated walkway that takes you straight to Volcano Bay) and our sister hotel, Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort. I especially love the view at night of Volcano Bay from Bar 17 Bistro.

Look another direction and you’ll see another of our sister hotels, Loews Sapphire Falls Resort. Look beyond and you have an awesome view of Universal’s Islands of Adventure, Universal Studios Florida, and Universal CityWalk. And you don’t have to be on the roof to see these views—the floor-to-ceiling windows in many of our guest rooms showcase these views brilliantly.

The Food and Drinks

We’ve meticulously crafted our menus and cocktails to bring guests something out of the ordinary – great food in a casual, welcoming setting that puts everyone at ease.

What are the must have’s? The bao buns and the Wagyu beef sliders at Bar 17 Bistro. A specialty cocktail at any of our three bars – barVentura in the lobby, BarSol at the pool or Bar 17 Bistro on the rooftop.

But perhaps my favorite aspect of this entire project is our food hall in the lobby, Urban Pantry. Visit one of our four stations for breakfast, lunch or dinner and see how we’ve mixed fresh and flavorful with affordable casual to create something new for Orlando’s theme park food scene. Here, guests will enjoy diverse flavors, fresh ingredients and globally-inspired dishes such as teriyaki stir fry and smoked salmon pizza.

The Team

Every minute of every day, those of us who work in hospitality are focused on one thing—our guests. Each guest has a story, and our job is to be a part of your story in a meaningful and memorable way. Whether you’re visiting from a few miles away or half a world away, our team is here to take care of your clients and help them escape the “everyday.” Guests at Aventura Hotel will see our team’s undeniable passion as they experience this new hotel and all the endless opportunities for fun at Universal Orlando Resort.

So, book your clients here so they can see what has all of us so excited as we begin this new adventure, along with them and you.

Best of all, guests can enjoy all that Aventura Hotel has to offer at a Prime Value price point. If you haven’t already booked your clients’ stay, now is the time. For a limited time, guests that book a stay at Universal’s Aventura Hotel will receive a $50 hotel dining credit when staying for four nights or longer.
