This place is an oasis of peace within a turbulent city.
Its amenities, location, service and looks are really worth the price. It is so nicely landscaped with its terrace gardens, pool area and inner courtyard only to be topped by the priviledged view on the Taj mahal itself.
The only things that spoiled a bit the stay were totally out of control of this Hotel :
The constant smog cap on Agra makes the Taj Mahal (only 500 Mtrs away) almost invisible at times, the proximity of a railroad with trains sounding their horns all day and night and finally the millions of mosquitos which you need to be aware of.
I guess there's nothing Oberoi can do about that nevertheless.
- 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
