3. CLASSIFICATION OF RESORTS According to Location
4. CLASSIFICATION OF RESORTS According to Activity Offered
CLASSIFICATION OF RESORTS According to Ownership/Lodging Properties 6. Concentration of tourist facilities and services in specified tourism zones allows for efficient provision of infrastructure, offers a variety of easily accessible activities and facilities for tourists, encourages integrated planning and application of development controls, and contain any negative impacts in certain areas. These tourism zones should be locatedto be protected and areas more suitable for other types of development. The tourism zones needed to be integrated with the transportation network that connects the zones with the gateway to the country or region. 7.
8. Resort Planning The modern concept of a resort is that planned as an integrated development with consideration given to its compatibility with the natural environmentand possible benefits to local communities. Economic feasibility analysis:Analysis of the economic costs and benefits of a project to the entire area, region or country. A project may generate overall positive economic benefits by attracting tourists to the area, but not make a profit in itself. Financial feasibility analysis:The financial rate of return and profitability of a project based only on its own costs and revenues. 9.
10. 3. A specific environmental and social impact analysis must be conducted of the plan to ensure that the resort will not result in undue environmentally and economicallyas a basis for deciding on the final plan. 4.Then a final-economic and financial feasibility analysis is carried out to make certain that the resort will be economically viable and produce an acceptable financialrate of return. The results of this analysis may also require modifications to the plan. 5. Finally, the implementation programme is prepared and construction of the first phase begins. 11. There is a tendency for successful resorts to eventually be overdeveloped because they have been successful thus leading to environmental problems and decline of the resorts popularity. The best approach is to establish a maximum size for each resort based on environmental and other relevant considerations and, when one resort in an area is fully developed, to then develop new resorts elsewhere in the area or rehabilitate declining existing tourism areas. 12.
13. Each resort area is unique but some basicprinciples apply to the planning of most resorts. The concept ofland use zoningis applicable to resorts. A basic principle isconservationof specific environmental features such asbeaches, marine areas, ponds, lakes, lagoons, archaeological and historic sites, large trees and group of tree, unusual geological features and hill tops. Related to this conservation is maintenance of view planes and corridors so that there are views of important features form the building in the final development. 14.
16. Provision of adequate infrastructure for the resort is essential to prevent environmental problems. Often this infrastructure can also be developed to serve nearby communities as one of the local benefits from the resort development. Conservation-oriented infrastructure techniques should be applied, such as treatment and recycling of sewage effluent for use in landscape irrigation and use of solar energy for water heating and natural ventilation substituting airconditioning air conditioning. Resorts are typically well landscaped to create an attractive open environment. One of the regional considerations in resort planning is that, if sufficient housing for the resort employees is not already available in nearby communities, then housing will need to be developed neat the resort. This housing should be planned as an integrated community with the full range of community facilities and services, as well as the housing provided. 17.
