Just finished my stay at the Oberoi Amarvilas and have never been anyplace quite like it. The location, with a view of the Taj Mahal, is unparalleled. The architecture and grounds fit the environment perfectly and brings you to a different world. The guest experience is like nothing I have ever experienced previously. Everyone I had contact with, including the...

The Oberoi hotel in Agra must be the only hotel in the world where the view from the Windows is the Taj Mahal. Located 600 metres from the Taj Mahal, the hotel is luxurious, spacious and boasts an enormous pool and garden. Its standard of service is consistent with the Oberoi tradition but, if you can, make friends with chefs...

Traveled with a National Geographic group and stayed at the hotel in November 2016. The room had a direct view of the Taj Mahal. The grounds were immense and perfectly landscaped. The personnel were exceptional and the lobby and interior were incredible. Restaurants were excellent. Would recommend to all who have the opportunity to travel to Agra.

This was our third trip to this wonderful hotel over the last decade. Views, service, food, welcome & overall style are just impossible to beat - as is breakfast.

We had previously stayed at the Oberoi in Mumbai and the Amarvilas surpassed our expectations. The hotel cannot be in better proximity to the Taj Mahal and the staff was extremely attentive. The food and beverage services were all you would expect from a superior hotel. Thanks for making our stay a highlight of our India adventure.

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
