As a crossed field of tourism resort study and tourism impact study, tourism resorts not only affect the sustainable development of resorts, but also concern the depth and extent of impact study. Based on the analysis of published papers on resort impact study both home and abroad, such as Tourism Management and Annals of Tourism Research, this paper intends to review and evaluate the progress in study of tourism impact on resorts, especially the tourism impacts brought by enclave resorts. Five aspects of negative impacts of enclave resorts are elaborated in detail: 1) informal sectors being squeezed out by formal sectors in the process of resort development; 2) high economic leakage resulting from import and export; 3) contact and interaction are restricted between residents and resort visitors; 4) poor employment opportunity and manual jobs provided for community residents; and 5) residents lose the control of tourism development due to foreign ownership of facilities. The understanding of studies on enclave resort overseas could help to analyze similar phenomena emerging in the development of resorts in China. By doing so, we can not only get reference of furthering tourism impact study of resorts in China, but also obtain effective solutions to the existing problems of tourism impacts of Chinese resorts.
