There is a tag leisure=beach_resort

if your resort is not at the beach I'd suggest to use a different tag
(maybe propose something like leisure=winter_sports_resort,
health_resort, ...)

tourism=hotel should be tagged additionally (on the hotel area)

I don't like landuse=resort very much, IMHO it would be better to have
a more generic value for landuse (maybe landuse=tourism?
