Chapter 1INTRODUCTION
Tourism has been one of the world’s most consistent growth industries. Increasein leisure time, accessibility in travel and rising curiosity about other lands, peoples andways of life promise a bright future for the tourism industry. Governments of manynations are encouraging the growth of both domestic and international tourism as meansof job creations, economic diversification, and source of foreign exchange.Beyond its economic significance, tourism promotes understanding and trustamong people of different cultures. Furthermore, tourism has the promise of becomingthe world’s first peace industry - an industry which recognizes, promotes and supports the belief that every traveler and every host can be an “ambassador for peace” promotingunderstanding, goodwill and respect among the people of the world.Gray (2003) et al. stated that in ancient Rome, the inns were large mansions.Owners of these inns would not allow guests to stay unless they carried a “letter of eviction “which was permission to travel from God. Similar official inns existed alongthe famous apian way.The Romans, mostly legionaries and civil officials, built monuments to their civilizations throughout Britain and Europe during their exploration and conqueringexpeditions. Most were built in the beautiful areas with natural springs. Their tavernswere called “
Tavernas
”, and attached in these was called a
cauponas
”. In both England,relics dating from AD 54 still exist today.In early days in the near east, caravans crossing vast desserts, stopped atcaravansaries. These were accommodations that surrounded large a courtyard.Ismail (2005) emphasized that as the history of lodging unfolded, innovation began to emerge. At some print, innkeepers began to incorporate food and beverageservice in their operations. This led to a change in the way people traveled. No longer did people have to carry enough supplies for an entire overland journey.1
 
As the evolution of lodging continued, new facilities began to emerge as an optionfor travelers. The wealthy and landed aristocrats of the world began to view the manyspare rooms in their castles and estates as sources of revenue.Weissinger (2000) stressed that the word hotel is the anglicized version of theFrench hotel
 garni
, which means “large, furnished mansion.”Historians have uncovered evidence to suggest that a hospitality industryflourished more than 2000 years before the birth of Christ. References are found inwriting about life in Babylon, the center of the world in 2050 B.C., that referred toalehouses, apparently places that provided accommodations and sold intoxicating liquors.The accommodations were meager, providing only shelter and the barest of sustenance. In the earliest times, they were operated by slaves who belonged to thetemples or holy places. Generally, the slaves were replaced by freemen, but even them,they were considered to be of low social prestige.Perhaps a more logical explanation or at least one easier to accept in our modern-day thinking – is that the providing of hospitality was merely a result of a “
 give-and-take philosophy”
, that is, if you give a stranger food and lodging today, perhaps a stranger willdo the same for you at another time.The Camsur Watersports Comlex (CWC) is the first world-class watersportscomplex in the Philippines and in Asia. CWC aims to bring cable skiing to a whole newlevel and attract watersports enthusiasts from all over the world with its top of the linefacilities and relaxing environment. This six (6)-hectare complex, with its 6-point cableski system, is sure to draw guests, riders, and spectators by the thousand. Because of good weather conditions, cable skiing in the park can be done all year round.Accommodations within walking distance from the CAMSUR WATERSPORTSCOMPLEX are readily available for anyone that wishes to visit the cablepark for aweekend or week-long getaway. The Ecovillage, The Governor’s Mansion, Cabanas,Containers and the luxury villas and suites also located within the Provincial CapitolComplex are all a stone’s throw away from the cablepark and may be booked for veryreasonable prices. The rooms are spacious and equipped with cable-ready 29-inchtelevision sets, air-conditioning, and hot/cold showers. Restaurants, guest lounges,2
 
swimming pools and Wi-Fi capability are also available in any of these areas for guests toenjoy.The researcher was interested in the topic, and believed that the said topic isrelevant to his field of study. It is closely related to his course for this area isinterconnected with tourism since tourists find hotels indispensable in their trips. Thiswill be of great value in his work, which will certainly empower him to be a competentand world-class member of our society.This study will further encourage more people to become interested in hotels andgain more knowledge about them. The study also opens and exposes new vistas never heard of before, expounding the prospect of the said hotel and of tourism itself. The status provides a basis, or a stepping stone towards the achievement of the goals of the hotel,even of tourism.
