Checked inlate and went off to sleep. Open your eyes in the early morning and the stunning view of the Taj Mahal greets you. There cant be a better sight than this. Keep watching and the color of the monument changes as the sun goes higher. Its 7.30 am and my colleagues and I take a five minute ride in...

The hotel has the pick of the spot (as most Oberoi's do). The rooms have a fantastic view of the Taj Mahal and are very comfortable, spacious, with a nice bathroom. Not many multi plug sockets but I'm sure there would be some available from reception. The pool area is lovely and they will bring out more sun loungers if...

The first stop on our road trip around North East India. The team at Oberon Amarvilas gave us an amazing welcome. The hotel grounds are magnificent, with a dramatic pool at the bottom of tiered gardens. As you stand on the patio outside the bar area you look across this sunken oasis, past a line of trees, to the Taj...

I appreciate that many tourists visit this hotel for the Taj Mahal alone, and therefore this review will be of little help to the majority. This is clearly the best hotel if you want to get as close to the Taj as possible. The monument is visible from the room, the bar and the reception area. If you are visiting...

We stayed at 3 Oberoi hotels while visiting India. We stayed in Oberoi hotels in Jaipur,and Udaipur as well as Agra. Theses hotels were the most luxurious we have ever stayed. Service, staff, pools, restaurants, were just outstanding. I cannot begin to express in words the overall experience.

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
