Enjoy Your South Seas Vacation at Loews Royal Pacific Resort

We think every island paradise should have three things: sun, sand and tons of palm trees. Good news! At the Loews Royal Pacific Resort at Universal Orlando® you’ll find all three, plus so much more. This is your chance to enjoy a South Seas vacation without sailing halfway around the globe. Feel the excitement of a time when adventurous travelers first island-hopped the South Pacific. A lagoon and sandy-white beach set the stage for your adventure. But the magic doesn’t stop there. Sip a Mai Tai in our Orchid Court Lounge and enjoy its shimmering reflection pool—where you can watch the waters dance past carved statues of imperial-style elephants. Or take the time to savor our colorful Balinese umbrellas, called tedung; they’re a symbol of protection and date back to the 13th century.

Loews Royal Pacific Resort entrance

Take time to dine in our delicious restaurants or allow us to bring you a cocktail poolside. It’s no wonder Conde Nast Traveler gave us their coveted Readers' Choice Award in the “Top 150 Resorts in Mainland U.S.” for two years in a row. Or that Travel + Leisure magazine honored us with a slot on its “Top 50—Best Family Resorts in the U.S. and Canada” list more than once.

Complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the hotel and in the pool areas ensure you’re never out of touch.

International Travelers: A U.S. visitors (B-1) visa allows a foreign citizen to travel to a port of entry and request admission into the United States from a U.S. immigration inspector. Begin your visa application process as early as possible as it could take several months to process.

The US-VISIT program is now in effect and applies to all visitors (with limited exceptions) holding non-immigrant visas, regardless of country of origin. Visitors will now have their two index fingers scanned and a digital photograph will be taken.

Visitors from Visa Waiver Program countries
For 35 countries in the Visa Waiver Program (VWP), citizens meeting the visa waiver criteria will not need a visa but they must have a machine-readable passport. In addition, as of Jan. 12, 2009,  travelers visiting the United States from VWP countries must be approved for travel electronically prior to boarding a carrier to the United States.  Travelers must fill out the forms online at least 72 hours in advance of travel.

Registration via the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) is intended to replace the I-94W paper form by collecting biographical information over the Internet from visitors from countries that participate in the VWP.
