RAVELLA AT LAKE LAS VEGAS
Ravella at Lake Las Vegas is a hidden gem where the desert gives way to a shimmering lake, white sandy beach and lush grounds in a romantic Italian-inspired oasis, perfect for those looking to experience a different side of Sin City with unmatched recreation and relaxation. Although the resort, which opened February 11, 2011, is located just 17 miles from the world-famous Strip, the serene lake setting and Mediterranean architecture make guests feel as though they have traveled afar to a colorful waterside village in Italy.
