You don’t have to travel to the Pacific Islands to enjoy the tropical wonders typically found in a Polynesian paradise—they’re all right here at Loews Royal Pacific Resort at Universal Orlando. But beyond the swaying palm trees, sparkling blue waters and flourishing orchids, there are some hidden gems at Royal Pacific to help you bring your vacation to the next level!

1. The Wok Experience

2. Torch Lighting Ceremony

On Saturday evenings, sing along to the “oli aloha” welcome chant, and get wrapped up in the sights and sounds of the poolside torch lighting ceremony. This complimentary event includes a fire dancer, hula dancer and a ukulele player. You might even learn to do the hula yourself!

3. Sushi at Orchid Court

The Orchid Court Lounge is a tucked away oasis in the hotel’s lobby. Tempt your taste buds with one of the chef’s specialty rolls or sip on a craft cocktail. This is the perfect spot to sit and relax after a busy day in the parks.

4. Wantilan Luau

Who doesn’t associate a trip to the Polynesian Island’s with a luau? Experience the tradition firsthand with an evening of authentic Polynesian food and entertainment. This weekly show is a memorable experience to add on to your vacation. Get ready to show off those hula skills when you get home!

5. Beer Flights at Jake’s

Get your fill of craft beer at Jake’s American Bar. Boasting an impressive list of beers, you can even sip on their very own brew, Jake’s American Red Lager.

Jake’s also hosts expertly paired beer dinners as well as outdoor beer festivals on select nights throughout the year.
