More opulent than we could have imagined. We entered the hotel through a garden of pools. A flautist was playing in the entry. The room has a large balcony overlooking the pool area and a view of the Taj Mahal. The service was exceptional. At breakfast the Marsala Dosa was delicious and other food also very good. Dinner was nothing...

My partner and I drove into Agra for two nights to complete one of our bucket list locations as we were in India for a wedding. Was so excited to see the Taj Mahal, but woke to a disappointing rain and cold weather so wasn't sure how the day would proceed. Leave it to the Oberoi to make our days/night...

We stayed at the Amarvillas for two nights. After a rather uncomfortable train journey from New Delhi, we didn't really know what to expect from this hotel. What we found was amazing. This is a luxurious, attentive and most impressive hotel. Waking up to a view of the Taj Mahal is a real treat. This hotel is that close to...

From the lovely welcome when you arrive, to the quality of the room and the great Staff, it would be hard to complain about this Hotel. The only disappointing thing was that we were only there for a short stay!

We arrived at the hotel on friday night, and it was almost empty. It seemed they were running on half of the staff, it was scary quite, dark... The room was not really special, compared to its price.

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
