The Hotel is lovely, the view is amazing on the Taj Mahal...the swimming pool a pure pleasure. The room was nice, breakfast great. Walking distance to the Taj Mahal, perfect to be there early in the morning.

This is the third time we have stayed in the Amarvilas and unfortunately this time the experience was very poor. The previous two times we stayed it was perfect, but this time it did not live up to the Oberoi name, and as they say you are only as good as your last customer experience. This year was a very...

It was our 30 anniversary so my husband and I splurged at the Oberoi. We loved our private balcony dinner served by our personal butler/waiter. The service in India is the best in the world! The hotel is gorgeous. You pay top dollar at the Oberoi but you do have the advantage of getting in to see the Taj before... More

perfect service for a fantastic location. Out of season may have helped a little but I doubt it. Our stay was heavenly and we were happy to retreat to the hotel often. Everyone looked after our four year old and spoiled her rotten. Agra is not really a place for small children however you wouldn't have guessed it with the... More

The hotel is located near the Taj Majal in Agra (hotel golf courts will drive you to and back from it on request) and offers rooms (with balcony) facing this unique, astonishing monument.

Having read the reviews, I expected a great deal. The grounds and the pool in particular are exceptional and it adds to the experience when you can see the Taj Mahal from your bedroom terrace. The staff are willing to help and smile but due to the number of them, you find yourself saying hello about a thousand times a... More

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

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
