Deluxe - This is our first really 'upmarket' category. It might be a beautiful tiny hotel with very limited facilities or a 5* resort hotel with all the trimmings; but any hotel in this category will be a well-run establishment with very comfortable rooms, a strong service ethos and excellent food.
Eastern India is a great holiday - Calcutta vibrant, the Sunderbans peaceful, the mountains majestic and the monasteries interesting. I won't mention the roads!
