Ravella Lake Las Vegas
For a romantic Las Vegas getaway without the congestion and noise of the Strip, consider this lakeside resort, 17 miles away, complete with two golf courses. Lounging by the expansive pool, kayaking and sailing, and side-by-side massages are just a few of the couples-friendly amusements at this private, 320-acre resort inspired by the estates of Italian lake country. Rooms epitomize the chain’s understated elegance (stately Tuscan architecture, spacious marble bathrooms, soothing spa), and are well out of earshot of clanging slot machines. Splurge on a club-level room on the top level of the “Pontevecchio” bridge that stretches out into the lake.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
