There's another Las Vegas, one that couldn't be farther from the neon buzz of the strip. One with a white sand beach on a crystal lake, and a grand spa featuring New Age treatments inspired by the water and desert. The new 349-room Ritz-Carlton, Lake Las Vegas, has the feeling of being a luxurious Mediterranean-style retreat, yet it's just 17 miles from downtown Las Vegas in Henderson, Nev. The resort is part of MonteLago Village, which was modeled after Florence's Pontevecchio. The village features restaurants, fine shops, and a European-style casino that is set to open this summer.
