Viva Las Vegas! What three words are more exciting? Las Vegas just has a magical draw to it whether you are one that likes to pull on the slot machine or not. When we were selecting our hotel, we were looking for a place that we could relax and rejuvenate but that we also could enjoy the excitement of the Vegas strip. We found just the place at the Hilton Lake Las Vegas Resort and Spa boasting an ideal location in Henderson, NV, 20 miles from the Las Vegas Strip but worlds away from an ordinary Las Vegas experience. Hilton Lake Las Vegas Resort & Spa offers a thrilling escape with easy access to the bright lights of the city.

We will make sure you have the trip of a lifetime at this Mediterranean style complex complete with the Spa Ravella -  an oasis-like wellness retreat. So come and do all the things you enjoy doing in one location. Sewing will be first on the list, of course. Followed closely by chocolate. 

Worry Free Cancellation:

On behalf of the entire Stitchin’ Heaven family, we want to ensure you that your safety and health remain a top priority to us. We know that booking a vacation during this time of travel restrictions and general uncertainty can feel risky. To help alleviate those concerns, we have adopted a new worry free cancellation policy. If you need to, you can cancel your Land Ahoy Trip and receive a full refund up to 90 days before your scheduled trip.
