This study investigates how tourism affects the quality of life (QOL) of residents in tourism destinations that vary in the stage of development. The proposed model in this study structurally depicts that satisfaction with life in general derives from the satisfaction with particular life domains. Overall life satisfaction is derived from material well-being, which includes the consumer’s sense of well being as it is related to material possessions, community well-being, emotional well-being, and health and safety wellbeing domains. The model also posits that residents’ perception of tourism impacts (economic, social, cultural, and environmental) affects their satisfaction of particular life domains. Lastly, this study investigates that tourism development stages moderate the relationship between residents’ perception of tourism impacts and their satisfaction with particular life domains. Accordingly, the study proposed four major hypotheses: (1) residents’ perception of tourism impacts affects their QOL in the community, (2) residents’ satisfaction with particular life domains is affected by the perception of particular tourism impact dimensions, (3) residents’ satisfaction with particular life domains affects residents’ life satisfaction in general, and (4) the relationship between residents’ perception of tourism impacts and their satisfaction with particulate life domains is moderated by tourism development stages.
