%X In the effort to reduce water consumption for resorts,
more water conservation practices need to be implemented. Hence
water audits need to be performed to obtain a baseline of water
consumption, before planning water conservation practices. In this
study, a water audit framework specifically for resorts was created,
and the audit was performed on two resorts: Resort A in Langkawi,
Malaysia; and Resort B in Miri, Malaysia. From the audit, the total
daily water consumption for Resorts A and B were estimated to be
180m3 and 330 m3 respectively, while the actual water consumption
(based on water meter readings) were 175 m3 and 325 m3. This
suggests that the audit framework is reasonably accurate and may be
used to account for most of the water consumption sources in a
resort. The daily water consumption per guest is about 500 litres. The
water consumption of both resorts is poorly rated compared with
established benchmarks. Water conservation measures were
suggested for both resorts.
