Halal tourism is customized towards Muslim tourists based on the Islamic principles known as Maqasid Al-Sharia. Accommodation sector in the halal tourism is also guided by these principles. Despite the increasing demand for the halal-based hotel, there is no established and comprehensive guidelines for its operations. Through a qualitative study, this study provides a guideline named Sharia Islamic Hotel Assessment Tool (SIHAT) which covers a wide range of operational practices of a hotel. The 64-item of SIHAT covers the main operations of hotels namely administration, common areas, bedroom, services and food and beverages. The guideline is hoped to help the halal-based hoteliers to operate according to the Islamic principles as well as for their continuous improvement initiatives.
