After a long drive from Delhi, we were welcomed into the picturesque lounge overlooking the Taj Mahal with cold towels and cool drinks, the perfect way to begin our stay. We were wowed with the view of the Taj Mahal from our balcony, room 401 directly opposite the lifts. It was very romantic to wake to the most spectacular view... More

We stayed for two nights at the Oberoi and just when entering this palace it's a great experience. Direct view to the Taj Mahal from the lobby (also from our room), great, spacious rooms and an unparalleled service quality of the entire staff. To the Taj Mahal it is just a short ride with a golf cart, which saves time... More

If hospitality has to be learnt, it is from them. They redefine care and attention to detail. And the food is to die for. And if that were not enough, the view of the Taj whether it is from your room or from the hotel lobby means you are living the luxurious life of a Mughal emperor...actually perhaps better :)... More

Our family of 4 with 2 young children stayed 2 nights at this amazing hotel, and came away with an experience of a lifetime.

This hotel is conveniently located near Taj. But what makes i different is the service. Not even for one minute we felt unattended. We really enjoyed the courtesy showed by the staff at lobby and then at the restaurant. Afternoon buffet was well balanced, appealing and with great variety of Indian and continental dishes. A special mention of desserts is... More

The Oberoi hotels in India really are the premier properties in India. They are beautifully designed and the staff are trained very well. We enjoyed our stay here. A special mention goes to Prachi Sati, the front office manager, who was very helpful in forwarding a package that we were waiting for from Mumbai. The only minor complaint I would... More

What a beauty!! We stayed for two nights with the family and were given interconnecting rooms. Both the rooms had a direct view of the Taj Mahal. The check in process was incredibly straight forward being done in the room itself. The kids were given some gifts as well. The visit to Taj was a minute drive on the golf... 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
