What features should a luxury resort have?
First of all, let’s start by explaining the main differences between a hotel and a resort. Both offer very exclusive services aimed at customer satisfaction and comfort. Resorts are tourist complexes located in natural environments at specific places away from the city, such as the beach or the mountains, with leisure and sports facilities. They offer all the necessary services so that you do not have to leave the premises.
In contrast to hotels, resorts are aimed at longer stays. Hotels are usually located in cities and while many provide additional services, their main function is to offer a room to accommodate the guest and are aimed at short stays.
