Note: This property is now Hilton Lake Las Vegas Resort & Spa
For those who find the Italian vibe of The Venetian appealing, but aren't so hot on staying right on the Strip, Ravella is a great alternative. Just seventeen miles from the action, it enjoys a beautiful, tranquil desert setting. And although you won't find gondoliers drifting around the property, you can steer your own paddleboat on Lake Las Vegas, right outside the hotel's front door. Ravella is also adjacent to MonteLago Village, which means its own restaurants and facilities (day spa, pool, lagoon with white sand beach) are complemented by a wealth of upscale shops, fine dining, a marina and championship golf courses ... all within walking distance.
