Theoretical Framework According to Modernization of Theory, the context of modernization theory, tourism has been advocated as a development strategy to generate foreign exchange, to increase the balance of payment, increase GAP, attract development capital, increase the transfer of technology, increase employment (Shaw and Williams, 1994) and promote modern western values of life (Antihistamine Wall, 1982). Van Door (1979, cited by Pearce, 1989, p. 12) contends that the processes of tourism development could only be elucidated within the context of the development stage of a country.
In this sense, Roost’s (1967) argument that there are five stages of economic development was imperative when tourism development was discussed. Elsewhere, Thrust (1973) has suggested that there are three stages of development in relation to the evolution of the airlines routes. However, Missies (1976) proposes five stages of development, from the original pioneer resort to a fully developed hierarchy and specialized saturation stage when conceptualizing tourist space dynamics (Permian and Chon, 1997). Modernization in tourism development also stipulates for the consumption of experience’ as an end product.
Tourists improved their social structural status when they manage to travel and consume these experiences (Wang, 2000) and hence fulfill their ego needs (Moscow, 1987). (Note 2)Butler (1980) further improvised the evolution of tourism development through his product cycle-based evolution of tourist destination (see figure 1 Butler proposes six stages Of development: involvement, exploration, development, consolidation, stagnation and decline or rejuvenation. More recently, Agar (2002) has used Butlers work as a template when she contends that many
British seaside resorts, which were in the stagnating or declining stage, (Note 3) have rejuvenated when for example theme parks were introduced at these resorts. Agar argues that endogenous or exogenous forces also play a significant role in a process of destination development. In the context of number of stages involved in tourism development study of destination, Permian and Chon (1997) argue that there is no unanimous number. The Dependency Theory, the tourism development in peripheral countries is strongly influenced by events in the core countries.
The flow of mass tourists room central to peripheral countries, and the running of hotels and resorts, are subject to various control mechanisms found in the former (Britton, 1989). The roles of tour operators in core countries, one of the most influential tourism suppliers due to their huge financial resources and industrial leverage, for instance, can exert a strong impact on the occupancy rate of hotels and spatial distribution of tourist flow in receiving countries, many of which resemble peripheral areas (Shaw and Williams, 1994).
Furthermore, many Of the hotels, particularly those Of an international class, re owned or managed by Transnational Corporations. However, Din (1990) contends that not all international standard accommodation chains in developing countries belong to developed countries and hence are not controlled by external force. He exemplifies this notion by noting that locals own several of the luxury hotels in Penman, a tourist destination area in Malaysia. At a different level, these relationships posit the notion of underdevelopment of developing countries because of the exploitation by developed countries (Britton, 1989; Harrison, 1995). Thus, according to dependency theory, tourism is an industry like any other, which is used by the developed countries to perpetuate the dependency of the developing countries. Instead of reducing the existing socio-economic regional disparities within the developing countries, tourism reinforces them through its enclave structure and its orientation along traditional structures”. (Permian, 1993, p. 540) 2. 2 Review of Literature 22. 1 Demographic profile Demographic profiling is essentially an exercise in making generalizations about group of people.
As with all such generalizations many individuals thin these groups will not conform to the profile demographic information is aggregate and probabilistic information about groups, not about specific individuals. Critics of demographic profiling argue that such broad brush generalizations can only offer such limited insight and that their practical usefulness is debatable. Research Question : What is the Demographic Profile of the Respondents in terms of Age and Gender? HOI : There is no significant difference on the age and gender of the respondents. . 2. 2 Resort A resort is a full-service lodging facility that provides access to or offers a anger of amenities and recreation facilities to emphasize a leisure experience. Resorts serve as the primary provider of the guests experience, often provide services for business or meetings, and are characteristically located in vacation oriented settings. The origin of resorts can be traced back to the second century B. C to the public baths of Rome. The first baths were small, modest and separated the genders.
Eventually, the baths became larger, more elaborate and were opened to both men and women. These baths were large buildings built at the publics expense. Some were even built by wealthy emperors who wanted to make a statement. Most baths were free but few had small entrance fees. Baths were much like resorts of today because of all the amenities offered at their location. Research Question #2: What are the Qualities of the pool, Conditions of grounds and staff Efficiency? HUH: There is no significant difference in the qualities of the pool, conditions of grounds and staff efficiency. . 23 Hotel A hotel is essentially a near-meaningless marketing term, but generally it indicates that the hotel offers vacation amenities and not simply a place to leap. A place calling itself a “hotel” usually has a variety of pastimes either on the grounds or immediately adjacent and somehow affiliated with the hotel. Exactly what these are varies, but some common ones are golf, skiing (snow or water), a spa, fine dining etc. Research Question #3: What are the conditions of Leisure Facilities, Room, Furnishings, Food and Beverage?
HUH: There is no significant difference between the conditions of the leisure of facilities, room, food and beverage. 2. 2. 4 Camp The campground classification program takes account of the type and indention of the facilities and the number of complementary services offered by each campground. While it focuses particularly on maintenance, cleanliness and the layout of sites and facilities, the classification also takes account of the diversity of the infrastructure and services provided for campers’ comfort.
Laundry facilities, a playground, electrical hookups, a swimming pool, a community hall and Wi-If, for instance, can boost a campground’s classification level. Research Question #4: What are the overall guest’s satisfaction about JEW Camp, Hotel and Resort? HUH: There is no significant difference about the overall guest satisfaction of the JEW Camp, Hotel and Resort. 2. 3 Research Simulacrum Figure 1. 1 The study consists of 40 respondents and utilized the survey questionnaire to assess the following variables such as the facilities, amenities and set-vices of the resort. 3.
