Rum Bar Featuring Bacardi® Rum Opens Today at The Newly Reimagined Caribe Royale Orlando

Rum Bar featuring Bacardí® Rum, the vibrant lounge and bar located in Central Florida’s AAA Four Diamond Distinction winning resort — Caribe Royale Orlando — officially opens to the public today, providing guests with innovative craft cocktails, sweet and savory Cuban-inspired bites and an extensive selection of Bacardí® rum. The bar’s design and atmosphere compliment the resort’s effortlessly warm ambiance, while also highlighting the vast history of Bacardi rum through an artistic mural welcoming guests as they enter the bar. While enjoying their cocktails curated by top mixologists, guests can even try their hand at a game of dominoes, a traditional Cuban pastime, at the designated dominoes tables.

“Rum Bar featuring Bacardí® is an exciting addition to Caribe Royale Orlando, bringing authentic Cuban-inspired flavors, mixology and entertainment to hotel guests and visitors,” Managing Director Amaury Piedra said. “We welcome everyone to make Rum Bar featuring Bacardi® Rum their go-to spot in the Central Florida area.”

The bar’s beverage menu features a mix of classic and contemporary cocktails, like the Libertad, made with Bacardí Reserva Ocho — a complex golden rum with deep, layered and mellow flavors of oaky vanilla, dried fruits and spice mixed with fernet, prosecco and Coca Cola. Other cocktails include the Cuba Libre, meaning “Free Cuba.” This simple and elegant cocktail, made with Bacardí Silver, cola and lime will take guests back to the aftermath of the Spanish-American War, when the beverage’s name was coined. In addition to cocktails, guests may also indulge in a selection of Cuban-inspired tapas, including beef empanadas paired with salsa pique and salsa criolla, ropa vieja flatbread made with slow simmered pulled flank steak, roasted peppers, tomatoes, onions, salsa criolla, sour cream and cilantro aioli, and Abuela Cruzitas flan served with seasonal berries and whipped cream.

The Rum Bar Featuring Bacardí is open daily from 4 p.m. to midnight, with live music playing on Thursdays and Fridays from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., and a DJ playing on Saturdays from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. To learn more about the hotel’s dining and mixology offerings, please visit the link here.

The opening of Rum Bar featuring Bacardi® Rum is one of the many transformations to Caribe Royale Orlando in 2022, as the resort emerges from a $127 million reimagination, offering a relaxed and effortless Florida design through the soothing color palettes, tropical motifs and artwork displayed. The property-wide renovations include the full remodeling of the resort’s 1,215 one-bedroom suites, the state-of-the art 50,000 square foot Palms ballroom and the welcoming and elevated lobby space, which will quickly become the heartbeat of the hotel. In addition to these renovations, the resort is also focusing on its upscale dining amenities with the relaunch of the premiere AAA Four Diamond Venetian Chop House, the on-site Starbucks and a two-level sports bar. Guests will be able to work, play, caffeinate, collaborate and indulge in one place once the series of new offerings are finalized, making Caribe Royale Orlando the ideal getaway for group and family travelers in Central Florida.

Caribe Royale Orlando Resort Emerges from $127 Million Dollar Reimagination; Debuts New Luxury Experience

Ahead of what’s expected to be the busiest tourism season to date, Caribe Royale Orlando Resort, the only AAA Four Diamond all-suite meetings resort in Orlando, announces the completion of a comprehensive $127 million-dollar property renovation. The phased resort reimagination included renovations to guestroom suites, public areas, dining outlets and a significant expansion to the meetings and event spaces.

“Caribe Royale has been a hidden gem in Orlando for more than twenty years,” said Amaury Piedra, Managing Director at Caribe Royale Orlando Resort. “Our reimagination has elevated the resort to a new level of luxury, beginning with our check-in experience and extending all the way to our modern suite accommodations and guest programming. We’ve transformed our property into a destination unto itself, where guests come to stay, play, work, dine, relax, reconnect, and be entertained.”

Highlights of Caribe Royale Orlando’s comprehensive renovation include:

Suites and Villas:


Caribe Royale Orlando completely renovated its 1,215 one-bedroom suites, debuting a new accommodation option that captures the spirit of Floridian luxury. The collection of classic-meets- contemporary suites welcome guests with soothing color palettes inspired by the shades of the sea, drawing from acclaimed artist Robert Rauschenberg and his Captiva Island-inspired art. Each newly renovated King and Queen one-bedroom suite features a separate living room and bedroom area, along with a dedicated workspace to accommodate the rising number of work-remote and extended-stay travelers.

For larger groups and extended stay travelers, the resort also offers 120 recently renovated two-bedroom villas, with two separate bedrooms, two bathrooms, a dedicated kitchen, dining area, remote workspace, and a private patio. Guests who book Caribe Royale’s two-bedroom villas receive an exclusive set of complimentary amenities and services, including access to a private villa pool.

Elevated Arrival Experience:

The property-wide renovation included a dramatic transformation of Caribe Royale’s lobby and public spaces. Upon entering the lobby, guests are now greeted by thoughtful, eye-catching details, including a visually striking chandelier that mirrors a flock of waterbirds in-flight. Personal check-in stations have been carefully designed to encourage deeper connections between guests and staff.

Now a central hub for networking and socializing, the refreshed lobby also provides access to numerous hotel amenities, including a new Rum Bar featuring Bacardi®,

two-level sports bar with interactive VR suites slated for a January 2023

Exceptional Culinary Experiences:

Caribe Royale offers leisure and meetings travelers a myriad of dining options whether at the property’s restaurants or in the privacy of your own suite. Most notably, the resort’s reimagination brought forward food and beverage enhancements as well as a new private dining space and expanded menu at The Venetian Chop House, the hotel’s AAA Four Diamond award winning fine dining restaurant.

To further solidify Caribe Royale as one of Orlando’s premier destinations for exceptional culinary experiences, the resort made notable enhancements and additions to its food & beverage program, beginning with the hiring of Executive Chef David Hackett and Executive Pastry Chef Joshua Cain. Combining these culinary powerhouses to offer the latest in fine-dining, Chefs Hackett and Cain are elevating Caribe Royale’s dining offerings through the introduction of immersive culinary experiences, educational workshops for guests, and a new pastry program.

Reimagined Meetings & Events Spaces & Programming:

As part of its reimagined meetings and events experience, Caribe Royale has introduced a new Curated Cocktail program, which provides groups the opportunity to create unique, hand-crafted beverages based on their corporate colors, palate preferences, and more. Immersive chocolate and pastry-making workshops for groups are also set to launch later this year.

The addition of the Palms Ballroom has brought Caribe Royale’s total meeting space to 220,000 square feet – all of which is located on a single level for ease of navigation.
