This summer visit Las Vegas in a whole new way at the palatial, Moroccan-inspired Westin Lake Las Vegas. Presiding over an expansive lake and surrounded by 3,600 acres, where outdoor activities — including stand up paddle boarding, cycling and fitness training — reign supreme. Here you can enjoy a lake side paradise where the only item on your itinerary is relaxation. Try stand up paddle boarding or kayaking on the lake, find your center in guided yoga classes or aim for the green on the only private Jack Nicklaus course in Nevada. Cool off on summer days at two signature pools with views of the lake, relax in one of 20 cabanas or play on a private, white sand beach. Then rejuvenate with healing treatments at Spa Moulay. In the evenings, savor AAA four diamond-rated cuisine at the resort’s signature restaurant, Marssa. Summer rates start at just $99/night, including breakfast for two.
