Abstract: In today's world, a resort is a popular place that provides not only relaxation and recreation but also beautiful surroundings, high quality food, even facilities to exercise and do other healthy activities. Planning the development level is one of the more important processes in a resort development project. However, planners often subjectively overestimate the project or cater to the preferences of the investors, resulting in an over-developed or imbalanced development. This paper provides a system that helps the planner to search for near-optimal amenity development level. Integrating genetic algorithms and simulation, it employs a dual-loop optimization model to propose advice to be used in the planning stage. Because the complex and dynamic analysis is done by the system instead of by the planner, it speeds up the decision-making process of the planning stage. (C) 2008 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
