Dolce Hotels & Resorts, which acquired the former Ritz-Carlton, Lake Las Vegas, after it was shuttered last spring, will reopen the property on Feb. 11 as the Ravella at Lake Las Vegas. Dolce has rebranded the 349-room resort to offer a more contemporary atmosphere, including a lobby that has been redesigned as a high-energy gathering spot. Named after Ravello, a coastal town in Southern Italy (and playing on the word revel), the resort features nearly 30,000 square feet in meeting space and customized catering for groups, as well as the Firenze Lobby Lounge and the Medici Cafe and Terrace restaurant. The property also is partnering with restaurants in The Village Lake Las Vegas to give guests more dining options. The 30,000-square-foot Spa at Ravella has 24 treatment rooms, a full-service salon and a fitness center.
