Lake Las Vegas

It rises like a mirage out of the southern Nevada desert – a sparkling freshwater lake surrounded by a Mediterranean-inspired village. Known as Lake Las Vegas, it’s a spectacular residential and resort destination situated on the privately-owned, 320-acre lake, just 17 miles from the famous Las Vegas Strip. And you have to see it to believe it.

Stretching 3,600 acres, the resort features residences ranging from custom home sites and waterfront and golf villas to condominiums and executive homes. But you don’t have to own at Lake Las Vegas to visit. Guests coming to Lake Las Vegas have their pick of incredible accommodations such as the splendid Ravella, a brand new hotel that gave a contemporary spin to the former Ritz Carlton property that closed in May 2010, the luxurious Loews Lake Las Vegas Resort and the Aston MonteLago Village Resort. Residents and guests alike can enjoy the magnificent vistas, full-service marinas offering watercraft rentals and yacht cruises, spas, a European-style village bursting with boutiques and restaurants, and much more. There’s a 40,000-square-foot casino and an amazing outdoor floating stage for a variety of concert events, including Andrea Bocelli’s 2006 nationally televised PBS special, “Amore Under the Desert Sky.” Other well-attended events include Jazz on the Lake, Movies al Fresco and no shortage of wine, art and food festivals, as well as truly fabulous holiday extravaganzas.
