Superior - This is what we would describe as our standard category. These will be decent 3/4* hotels providing a really good level of service. We would generally expect them to be providing a little something extra, in terms of character, guest experience or facilities too.
Centara Grand was fantastic. There are not many places in the world we would want to go back to but this is one of them. We loved it!
