Totally amazing hotel with breathtaking views of Taj Mahal. On arrival my wife was feeling unwell so the general manager immediately upgraded our room and organised at very short notice for a local doctor to attend. All the staff were really supportive and within 24 hours she felt much better and was able to fully enjoy the Taj visit. The...

This hotel ‘has it all’ : – The absolute best location (in Agra), within sight of The Taj Mahal (which is only a buggy ride away) – A wonderfully efficient and friendly team, who make a stay at this hotel, truly memorable – Beautiful grounds and décor – comfortable yet uniquely designed in a tasteful contemporary style I cannot praise...

Our final stop on a brief tour of India. An amazing welcome from the hotel team, even the manager who did not read a script from a management textbook but was genuine in his conversation. Stunning views of the Taj Mahal from the start. A lovely pool and gardens, a good fitness centre, food beyond delicious, outstanding service. Such a...

With the most spectacular views of the Taj and amazing to be expected Oberoi hospitality, we enjoyed a break from the heat outside. Ajay, the server was so professional and welcoming. Service gets a 10/10.

I cannot fault this hotel The location overlooking the Taj Mahal makes it extra special on its own, however, this is also a beautiful hotel As with all Oberoi hotels the service is exceptional, we stayed at four Oberoi hotels during our tour of northern India, they were all excellent but this was my favourite. Breakfast, lunch, dinner and poolside...

All the rooms here have a view of the Taj Mahal. Ours looked directly over the pool with a direct view of the monument. Our room was beautifully appointed. Not exactly spacious but not cramped either. But who cares? The VIEW! The staff is great. They have two restaurants. One serves buffets. The other is Indian cuisine. I have no...

The Oberoi Armavilas is unique. All the rooms have view of the Taj Mahal. Sadly, I expect, the serious aspects of the hotel, the rooms, the staff, the food, the gardens - 99% neatly clipped- are overshadowed by its neighbour. Having stayed here on many occasions the second night is the best, time to admire and enjoy the hotel. As...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Taj Mahal is extraordinary as much for what it is as how it has escaped the banality of cliché. For 350 years, this monument evokes a sense of wonder. Only by being there can you witness its true majesty, its symmetry, its setting and the delicacy of its carved marble inlaid with precious stones. Now just suppose you were to overlook it from your hotel room? The Oberoi Amarvilas is 600 metres from this tribute to love. The lavish interiors and elaborate gardens add to the serenity of the scene. The guestrooms are palatial: all have magical views and are luxuriously furnished with traditional fabrics, white marble, hand-crafted ornaments and every modern amenity. There is a luxury spa offering a range of therapies, a swimming pool where snacks and drinks are served; an ornamented ballroom and fine restaurants to suit the international palate. But the lobby lounge is a feast for the eye designed, as it was, around that glorious view of the Taj Mahal. ... more   less
