We arrived early to this hotel and we're amazed when we were allowed to check in 5 hours early. I was so impressed by the rooms manager and check in staff who were very professional. The views from the hotel are incredible and the rooms themselves are simply lovely. If I was staying again I would go all out for... More

I travel on business and pleasure extensively, having lived as an expat for 9 years. I have never experienced better service at any hotel. In addition the quality of the property is excellent and the hotel enjoys a view of the Taj.

We went to the Amarvilas with family to my parents 40th marriage anniversary. It was a beautiful experience as all of our rooms had direct views of the Taj Mahal, so when we woke up we would see the Taj from our bed. That was a sight to reminisce. The staff was very warm and welcoming and had arranged my... More

This is definitively a luxury hotel. The location is really unique (you can go to the Taj Mahal by foot and every room has a direct view on the Taj Mahal). The rooms are charming and beautiful. The hall, the bar and the salons are excellent and you have to spend time there. We found the restaurant a little bit... More

This delightful hotel is situated as close to the Taj Mahal as it is possible to stay - and offers wonderful views of the building from all of its rooms. You can access the historic site courtesy of the hotel's golf buggies which is a great boon and I would recommend seeing the Taj at dawn, well worth the early... More

Personal touch by the general manager was very much appreciated. For me from now onwards a... More

We were extremely fortunate to have friends who gave us a night at the Oberoi in Agra when they learnt we were traveling to see the Taj Mahal. Both exceeded expectations. What impressed us most was the service from the staff. Nothing was too hard and they went to extraordinary lengths to ensure we had a great time for only... More

Had a wonderful stay at this Hotel. The grounds are beautiful. The pool area is welcoming with bottled water, sun cream, body lotion etc given to you on arrival at pool. All staff were well trained, friendly and obliging. Nothing is too much trouble for management or staff. So nice to have a view of Taj Mahal from your window... More

The road leading to the newest of the hotels by the Oberoi Group leaves you wondering where you are going as the car heads down narrow and shabby streets in Agra. There is no hint of what is awaiting you as you finally turn into the gateway, except the very grand hotel sign in shiny brass. The vista that awaits... 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
