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. It's a small thing I know, but this hotel boasts a truly outstanding buffet breakfast. It was a "significant" birthday holiday for us and they didn't miss a trick. We can... More

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.

Due to traffic jam in Delhi we arrived late – almost 11 pm - in Agra at the Oberoi Amar Vilas without an opportunity to have dinner yet. Restaurants were of course already closed, but the hotel manager did proactively offer us an upgrade to a suite on the 5th floor and had the kitchen prepare us some sandwiches! So... More

We stayed at the Burg al Arab in Dubai and this is comparable. It has to be one of the most spectacular hotels in the world. From the open vista, to the view of the Taj to the large spacious room. Everything here is first class including the service.

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
