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.

With a view of the Taj Mahal & an amazing hotel what more would you want. Staff were outstanding looking after your every want & need. A sunrise visit to the Taj Mahal was recommended by the staff at the hotel. They organised a guide to show us around plus educate us about the history .

From the elaborate fountains and wall paintings in the entrance courtyard to the airy lobby and majestic views to the Taj Mahal, you can't top this hotel for proximity to the main attraction. Our suite had a large terrace overlooking the breath taking pool and landscaped gardens with the Taj Mahal about 600 metres in the distance. The service was...

You go to Agra for the Taj Mahal, sure, but this hotel is definitely worth the trip on its own! Stunning property, stunning gardens and even more beautiful after sunset when it is lit up...

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
