 Three Amazing Experiences to Choose From





The Nautical Beachfront Resort has been the premier resort in Lake Havasu City since the 1960s. Guests from around the world have experienced our unparalleled views, superior service, award-winning cuisine, and created vacation memories to last a lifetime.

Nestled on an island along the shores of Lake Havasu, The Nautical is the only beachfront resort in Arizona, and a landmark in the city’s history. Built by city founder Robert P. McCulloch in 1964, the hotel originally had just 16 rooms. Now boasting 139 rooms and suites, all of which overlook the lake, the Nautical has been transformed into a tropical island paradise for guests to gather and enjoy themselves throughout the year. Notable amenities include courtesy docks and free beach mooring (premium mooring in the Cove is extra) and onsite watersport rentals.

Over its storied history, the Nautical has hosted concerts, car shows, boat regattas, the Lake Havasu Balloon Festival, fishing tournaments, and other events, too many to name, but treasured and remembered for a lifetime. The Nautical remains a favorite in the hearts and minds of the community and our visitors.

The Nautical features three restaurants and bars, allowing our guests to choose their dining experiences. The Turtle Grille offers a comfortable indoor atmosphere with spectacular lake views and gourmet cuisine created by our award-winning Chef John Andreola. The Nautical’s heated infinity-edge pool “WET” was added in 2011, during a 2 million dollar renovation. An ultra-modern tropical oasis was created, perfect for sunning or swimming. Complete with the thatched-roof Palapa Bar, abundant lounge chairs, and luxuriously furnished poolside cabanas, “WET” is the perfect setting for casual contemporary dining and refreshing cocktails. Perched lakeside, the Famous Turtle Beach Bar is a must-do on everyone’s list. This is a kick-off-your-flip-flops-and-put-your-toes-in-the-sand kind of place. The Turtle Beach Bar features umbrella tables, cooling misters, tropical island drinks, and of course, the 64 oz. “Turtle Bucket “cocktail. Don’t forget, the Turtle Beach Bar is pet-friendly!

Though only a mile from “mainland” Lake Havasu City, The Nautical Beachfront Resort is worlds away from traffic, stress, and deadlines. Drive-in or Boat up and visit the only resort “On the Island”!
