In 2025, Universal Orlando Resort will open a brand-new theme park, Universal Epic Universe. Prior to that much-anticipated date, Universal will be opening two Prime Value hotels at the future site of the theme park — one of which is Universal Stella Nova Resort. Inspired by the infinite vastness of the unknown universe, Stella Nova Resort will open Jan. 21, 2025, but you can book your stay now through Undercover Tourist! Here's everything you need to know about this budget-friendly offering.

Universal Stella Nova Resort - Exterior

Overview of Universal Stella Nova Resort

Awash in tones of serene teal and calming purple, Universal Stella Nova Resort is the first of two sister hotels opening adjacent to Epic Universe. Enter the black hole vortex porte-cochère and prepare to be lured by the thrill and wonder of what lies beyond our world. Distant galaxies and unknown worlds that revolve around unnamed stars await you in this Prime Value celestial oasis. With unique amenities at a lower price point, this hotel will surely become a froggy favorite.

Universal Stella Nova Resort - Registration

Like all Universal Orlando hotels, Stella Nova Resort will offer exclusive theme park benefits, including Early Park Admission to Universal Islands of Adventure, Universal Studios Florida and Universal Volcano Bay, resort-wide charging privileges with your room key and complimentary delivery of merchandise purchased through the resort directly to the hotel. Guests staying at Stella Nova Resort will also have access to explore amenities at Loews Portofino Bay Hotel, Hard Rock Hotel, Loews Royal Pacific Resort, Loews Sapphire Falls Resort, Universal Cabana Bay Beach Resort and Universal Aventura  Hotel.

Universal Stella Nova Resort Rooms

Universal Stella Nova Resort - Guest Room

Stella Nova Resort will be home to 750 315-square-foot guest rooms which will feature sleek curves and subtle colors. Tasteful flooring and rich hues of blue and purple will inspire thoughts of sailing through the stars. Enjoy epic views from your room's curved window and plenty of storage to keep your luggage efficiently stowed away.

Standard Rooms feature two queen beds, a flat-screen TV, a mini-refrigerator, a coffee maker, an iron, a hair dryer, a safe, free Wi-Fi and, of course, air conditioning. These rooms are smoke-free and comfortably sleep four frogs. The Pool View Standard Room offers all the same exceptional amenities, PLUS an incredible view of the hotel's beautiful pool. Both of these room types are available to book now through Undercover Tourist!

Hearing Accessible Standard Rooms are equipped with a visual alarm and doorbell, a flashing light on the phone and an outlet near the phone for TTY access.

Transportation at Universal Stella Nova Resort

Universal Orlando's complimentary shuttles will make stops at Universal Stella Nova Resort for convenient access to the resort's current theme parks and Universal CityWalk.

Amenities, Recreation and Shopping at Universal Stella Nova Resort

Universal Stella Nova Resort - Pool

Like every hotel currently at Universal Orlando, Stella Nova Resort will be equipped with the resort's signature amenities. Prepare to splash in the hotel's 10,000 square-foot resort-style pool which will feature a hot tub, kids' splash pad area, walk-up bar, walk-up food service area, lounge and tabletop seating areas, outdoor games, outdoor firepit with surrounding seating and poolside movies — the perfect way to end a long day in the theme parks.

Let off some steam in the hotel's 648-square-foot self-serve game room which will have game cards for purchase and offer a variety of standard arcade and video games. Need to keep up a workout routine? Hop into the hotel's complimentary fitness center which will feature upscale cardiovascular and weight equipment, such as treadmills, bicycles (upright and recumbent), an elliptical machine, variable resistance weight machines, a stretching area and free weights. Locker rooms with showers will be available for use on arrival and departure days.

Of course, a Universal Orlando Resort hotel isn't complete without a Universal Orlando Resort store rife with sundries, guest necessities and Universal Orlando and resort logo merchandise. Other amenities available for guest use are a laundromat, luggage storage, an Avis car rental desk, a Universal Orlando Vacation Planning Center and a 1,185-square-foot rec room.

What to Consider Before Staying at Universal Stella Nova Resort

Good news! We already have a stay booked at Stella Nova Resort for the hotel's opening day — and you can, as well, through Undercover Tourist. We cannot wait to share all the frogciting details of our stay with you in January 2025. Until then, if you're planning on booking a stay here, be aware that it's not on the main Universal Orlando property (where the three existing parks are) and will be next door to the ongoing construction at Epic Universe. But we can't imagine anything more exhilarating than seeing a brand-new theme park come to life right from your hotel room window. Epic Universe currently has an unspecified opening date of 2025, but we'll be sure to update this blog as soon as we receive more news.
