The Tourism Grading Council of South Africa introduced a new 5-star premium rating for hotels and resorts earlier this year.

The introduction of the new rating above the already prestigious 5-star level was in response to a “widespread comparative study completed as part of the grading system review process,” according to BusinessTech.
