My sister and I literally started crying with the beauty of it when we were shown into our room at this beautiful hotel. Our only regret was that we were in one of the most romantic rooms either of us has ever seen with each other and not our husbands. We were there for one night last January as the big splash out treat on our trip to visit our brother who lives in New Dehli. If you are unhappy here, you will be unhappy anywhere
We booked the lowest level room and somehow were lucky enough to be put in a room with an extra large terrace and a bathroom with a view of the Taj Mahal. We could see the Taj Mahal from the shower, the bathtub, and yes, even the toilet. Exquisite.
We fantasize that we got this fabulous room because we were so in awe of the hotel before we even checked in. We were smiling and hugging each other and gratefully acknowledging the staff who gave us watermelon juice and escorted us to the lovely lounge with the view of the Taj Mahal to await check in. The beautiful young woman who escorted us to our room smiled coyly and said, "I think you will like your room" as she unlocked the door. The room literally took out breath away. I'll post pictures.
This is a very special hotel.
- 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
