Opening Date and Name Revealed For New Celestial Universal Orlando Resort Hotel

The opening date and name of the new Universal Orlando Resort hotels on Epic Boulevard have been revealed thanks to the Loews Hotels website. We’ve previously shared construction updates on this pair of towers, which are covered in colorful reflective titles and located near Epic Universe.

One of the new hotels will be Universal Stella Nova Resort, while the other will be Universal Terra Luna Resort. Loews Hotels has a landing page for the former that includes concept art and a scheduled opening date of January 21, 2025. Epic Universe is scheduled to open that summer.

As of November 14, 2023, the landing page now leads to a 404 error.

The concept art shows the colorful hotel exteriors, the pool area, the lobby, and a quick-service dining location.
