I spent three weeks travelling around India. Stayed in Oberoi hotels in both Jaipur and Aggra. The gardens in both were spectacular, staff incredible, helpful, polite, kind, went out of their way to accommodate various requests and catered to our every need. Having visited many countries and stayed in hotels all over the world I can say that the Oberoi... More

This hotel knows its audience and really nails it on all accounts. When we arrived from a long day of travel, it was early evening, and they had us check in out on the terrace, where the sun was setting behind the Taj. One of the most magical sights we've ever seen! Amarvilas really gets what the customer needs, which... More

On its own without the Taj the Amarvilas would be a top notch hotel. Incredible service, gorgeous grounds and beautiful facilities. But packaged together with the Taj virtually in the backyard and it becomes something else all together. If you are traveling a very long way like we were to see the Taj, it is worth every penny to combine... More

We always wanted to visit this hotel, as we were impressed by the view of Taj Mahal from its balconies. The name Oberoi was good enough to give an impression that we would not be disappointed. We were delighted. Right from the checkin to pub and restaurant, everything was perfect. We were briefed for a long time by Mr. Adan... More

Let's face it - the Oberoi excels in creating the penultimate in exotic luxury travel, catering for the most part to wealthy westerners obsessed with visiting such romantic and esoteric places without muddying themselves in the process. I mean - for anyone who's ever made the trip it's fair to say that India is more of an experience than a... More
