Creating resort destinations requires a knowledge of what has worked in the past, integration of that knowledge into a plan, and a vision of how to make the most of often disparate elements.
Mega destinations require detailed planning to integrate entertainment, hotel, golf, indoor and outdoor retail, water parks, theme parks, outlet malls, and vacation residential, parking, and transit into an optimized whole, where the individual parts support each other.
Revenue can be maximized and capital expenditure and operations expenses minimized through efficient planning. Without detailed planning, wasted capital and outsized operating expenses will hamper a resorts prosperity. It's all in the plan!
