This is the only place to stay when visiting the Taj Mahal, if your budget allows. The hotel is truly world-leading with clever design ensuring all rooms offer a view of the Taj Mahal. There is 30 minutes free wifi per day and buying more wifi is easy. The swimming pool is gorgeous and a great place to relax after...

We spent two weeks touring Rajasthan, almost exclusively staying in Oberoi Hotels. Friends recommended that we only stay one night in Agra, so we followed their advice. As a result, we did not have a chance to relax by the pool or take a walk around the grounds. We arrived at three in the afternoon and left after breakfast. We...

Its hard to describe the feeling of waking up and pulling back the curtains to see the Taj Mahal! The balcony I think is an extra on the room but definitely worth it, its a treat to sit in the afternoon sun with a cold drink in the warm air. Service was exceptional, and breakfast in particular was good with...

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
