We arrived at the Oberoi a little shaken from an accident involving our bus and and some water buffalo. We were not injured and very quickly fell into enjoying the luxury that is this hotel. It is actually a good sized campus of beautiful Indian architecture. Our room, as do all, had a wonderful view of the Taj Mahal. It...

The Amarvilas is an oasis in the middle of the very disturbingly dirty city of Arga. The grounds at this hotel are one of the most beautiful we have seen and the direct view of the Taj Mahal from everywhere, including every room, is breathtaking. But, the rooms at this hotel are dated. The Bathrooms are old and show their...

Words cannot describe the beauty and luxury you experience at this property. You must experience it for yourself. The view of the Taj Mahal from your balcony is enough to reel you in, but the hotel does not stop at just the beauty. The service will far exceed your expectations as Mr. Ankush Mahajan (the general manager) and his entire...

From the moment you arrive you appreciate that this is a special hotel.In what resembles the middle of a "war zone" ( slight exaggeration but not much!!) you pull through the gates and think "wow!"

We chose this hotel because of its location and view of the Taj Mahal from all rooms. We were pleasantly surprised by their wonderful pool area which offers a nice escape after a day of sightseeing.

I stayed at this hotel for one night as part of a conference visit to New Delhi. We took a visit to Taj and stayed at the Oberoi overnight. The hotel is certainly worth a visit. The view of the Taj, which the hotel boasts can be seen from every room, is spectacular. It was such a shame that the...

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
