Due to Universal building a new theme park means more guests will attend the parks, so Universal is in the process of building not one but two new resorts. While Epic Universe will not open until 2025 guests can go ahead and book to stay at the newest Universal Resort, Stella Nova. Bioreconstruct shared that Universal guests can book starting January 21, 2025, for the Stella Nova, and later, Universal guests can book for the other Resort, Terra Luna.

Reservations are available for Stella Nova resort stays. First stays start Jan 21, 2025. Located South of Epic Universe, which likely opens a later date.

The Stella Nova Resort is inspired by the infinite vastness of the unknown universe, where galaxies spiral ever outward, and unknown worlds revolve around unnamed stars. Guests who chose Stella Nova as their resort will also receive exclusive theme park benefits, including Early Park Admission up to one hour before the theme parks open.

News 6 reported on the Stella Nova sharing details of what the Resort will include. There will be 750 guest rooms, and Stella Nova will include a pool spanning 10,000 square feet, a hot tub, a kids’ splash pad area, and a walk-up bar. Stella Nova will feature an outdoor area where families and guests can gather to watch movies and sit around the fire pit.

Each Universal Resort has different features such as transportation some resorts include water taxis which will take guests to and from City Walk to resort, also different themes such as music and rock for Hard Rock Resort guests staying at Loews Portofino Bay Hotel with children can stay in the Minion suite rooms which features rocket beds like in the Minion movie.
