How to build the perfect Resort – Part 3: Building your own Resort

Building your own resort starts with purchasing an additional home on the phone, real estate and travel services > purchase additional home. Then you can choose which lot in the world you want to buy (we suggest that you go for a big lot, resorts need space). 2013-07-03_12-38-39 Once it is purchased it will get a new icon in the world view that indicates it is a private lot. Click on it and then you can select that it changes to a resort. 2013-07-03_12-38-59 You will know this was successful because it turns into a resort icon (the orange icon currently indicates that it is closed). 2013-07-03_12-39-39 Zoom into your lot and you can buy/build on it like any regular lot, as it is a resort lot you will have a new option with all the amenities option here: 2013-07-03_12-39-16 If you are a great builder you can go wild now with building a beautiful resort.

When you are done building click on your Front Desk > Resort Management > Open Resort.

Requirements

A Resort NEEDS a front desk. If you remove the front desk you will get this window:

2013-07-04_14-56-52

So do NOT delete the front desk.

Another requirement before you can open the resort  is at least 1 resort tower, a resort tower is a rabbit hole with a lot of rooms inside of it. There are 3 types of resort towers, Beach (small and large), Eco modern and Spanish.

To save some upgrading cost, go to buy/build mode and press ctrl+shift click on your resort tower > set quality > quality: 3. This instantly upgrades your resort tower to lvl 3!

You can also build VIP rooms each of these rooms give you 50% more income when they are rented out than a resort tower room. However you will notice they are not rented out every day and take up space. As VIP rooms are not a requirement you can have a resort with just resort towers to maximize income.
