Global travelers can soon add a new destination to their bucket list with the world’s first luxury space hotel expected to open before the end of this decade.

Orbital Assembly Corporation, the group behind Voyager Station, has announced plans to begin building the hotel in low Earth orbit in 2025. If all goes to plan, the interstellar resort project has the potential to be operational as soon as 2027.

Renderings of the cosmic hotel are futuristic, featuring individual pods that are attached to rotating, Ferris wheel-like contraption. Aboard the space hotel, guests will be able to enjoy a slew of amenities, including a cinema, a health spa, gyms, themed restaurants, libraries and concert venues. Since the hotel is expected to be in low Earth orbit, the establishment offers Earth-viewing lounges and bars and rooms that can accommodate up to 400 people. Additional necessities such as crew quarters, water, air and power systems will also take up a portion of the space facility.

The company plans to sell portions of the hotel to permanent stakeholders, including government agencies looking to utilize the facilities for training centers or just to private landlords looking to create a vacation home aboard the spacecraft.

The Voyager Station will reportedly circle around the globe every 90 minutes, using the artificial gravity generated by the circle’s rotation. The Daily Mail received a quote from John Blincow, founder of Gateway Foundation, which runs some of the Voyager’s pods, stating, “This will be the next industrial revolution.” He adds that the rotation aspect is “vital” since without gravity, people are not viable for space.

Take a look above at what can be expected of the Voyager Station.
