A lovely hotel with fantastic views of the Taj Mahal. However, it is the team that really make your stay. Always smiling, ever friendly and truly putting into practice the Indian belief that 'guest is god'. They really couldn't do any more. Thoroughly recommended if you want a complete spoiling experience in India.

Agra was our last stop after two weeks on the road in Rajasthan. Our stay at Oberoi Amarvilas provided the perfect high point on which to end our trip to amazing India. The hotel is stunningly beautiful, and our room had a view of the Taj Mahal (I believe every room has a view). The room had all the comforts... More

This Oberoi is definitely expensive and bad. The food is very bad. Terrible Cesar, tomato paste pastas, bad tea!!! We had a very bad time with everything served for lunch, dinner and breakfast. Bread from one day before! You could feel in a hotel chain with no personality. Good service, nice people trying to help, bad food.

The only re choice of hotels for visiting the Taj Mahal. There's a buggy service from the door - make sure u get their early to avoid the crowds and magical sunrise reflections on the pools. Back to the hotel. Stunning views on entry. Great pool. Get a room with a large terrace for champagne and watching the sunset over... More

More opulent than we could have imagined. We entered the hotel through a garden of pools. A flautist was playing in the entry. The room has a large balcony overlooking the pool area and a view of the Taj Mahal. The service was exceptional. At breakfast the Marsala Dosa was delicious and other food also very good. Dinner was nothing... More

My partner and I drove into Agra for two nights to complete one of our bucket list locations as we were in India for a wedding. Was so excited to see the Taj Mahal, but woke to a disappointing rain and cold weather so wasn't sure how the day would proceed. Leave it to the Oberoi to make our days/night... More

Took the wife here for our 20 year wedding anniversary. We could not have asked for more from the hotel. Beautiful room, superb service, beautiful grounds. They made a special effort for our anniversary. One example of the service was when we were leaving for the 5 hour drive to Jaipour the waitress offered to pack us a selection of... More

We stayed at the Amarvillas for two nights. After a rather uncomfortable train journey from New Delhi, we didn't really know what to expect from this hotel. What we found was amazing. This is a luxurious, attentive and most impressive hotel. Waking up to a view of the Taj Mahal is a real treat. This hotel is that close to... More
