Simply magical! I stayed in a deluxe suite with a view of the Taj Mahal. The room was exquisite and very clean. The pool was lovely, and the grounds were gorgeous. We had dinner at Esphahan and enjoyed the delicious food and delicate preparation. The breakfasts were wonderful, with many delicious options. The only negative: avoid the spa pedicures (the... More

The Oberoi Amarvilas puts Lux in Luxury. I stayed here as a solo traveler for one night only due to time constraints but wish I could have never left. Hope to come back with my husband one day. Booked the least expensive room for myself figuring I would spend most of my time doing tours & seeing sights- I actually... More

Every room has a superb view of the Taj Mahal. Opt for a balcony room. The hotel itself is stunning. The pool was amazing and the staff were extremely attentive. We took a golf cart to the Taj Mahal and I'd recommend a guide from the hotel to cut through the chaos at the monument.

What an excellent location for a hotel! The Taj Mahal is in its glory from every room with the exception of the spa and pool. We visited during the off season so the prices were dramatically reduced but I would return again even at full price. India has been a trip of a lifetime and this property was a perfect... More

This was a truly amazing stay. You can see the Taj from every-room of the hotel which is a bonus for one who is visiting Agra for the wonder of the world - and why else would you visit Agra? Attention to detail is what I remember most. Small gifts to welcome guests made by local craftmen was a special... More

We were a group of four friends travelling together and had three rooms here for two nights. It was a wonderful experience after travelling for most of the day to turn into the Oberoi Amarvilas and be taken up to our rooms on the fourth floor. The rooms were beautiful, and our room had a balcony looking out to the... More

The drive to the Oberoi from the train station is very short. This hotel is amazingly special in the middle of the hub bub of Agra. From all rooms there is a spectacular view of the Taj Mahal. Our veranda is very large surrounded by greenery overlooking the spectacular grounds. Our children are in the adjoining room. Someone is here... More

The Oberoi Amarvilas is located in Agra only 500 yards form the Taj Mahal complex. It is a lovely hotel for visiting the Taj Mahal which is somewhat isolated from the rest of Agra. Every single room at the hotel has windows facing the Taj Mahal and the view is breathtaking. The pool is old-world stunning (pictures included), the food... More

Worth every penny....lovely rooms, great pool, excellent food, excellent service. To wake up every morning with the view of the Taj Mahal is amazing. Could have just sat on the balcony all day and night!

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
