Resort Hotel

What is the meaning / definition of Resort Hotel in the hospitality industry?

A Resort Hotel is a is a full service lodging facility, intended primarily for vacationers and usually located in places frequented for relaxation or recreation, such as beaches, seashores, scenic or historic areas, ski parks, spas.

The difference to a ‘simple’ hotel lies in the range of services and amenities offered. A Resort Hotel typically includes entertainment and recreational activities.

We can say that a Resort is a self-contained establishment, providing for most of a vacationer's needs while remaining on the premises (lodging, food, drink, sports, entertainment, shopping, etc.).

The ownership can vary between timeshare, fractionally owned or operated by a single company. Some resorts can operate on a seasonal basis instead of all year-round.

The benefits of booking a Resort Hotel are that the guest finds an all-around service within the premises. It is convenient for families, offering kids-club, evening entertaining program, shopping etc. In cases the Resort is located far away from the city, the Resort provides all the infrastructure needed (it is a ‘village’ itself). Often a Resort is used as a wedding location (with a wedding planner on side, a photographer, a hairdresser and a beauty salon etc.).
