This hotel is amazing. This could be the end of my review!
What can I say? Where do I start? Check in was seamless. We were led to the lounge to check in with a cold drink in front of the Taj Mahal. We had a premier room with balcony. It was simply amazing. I cried when I got to the room. The room was lovely - but the balcony with a view of the Taj was simply breathtaking. The beautiful pool and gardens were also part of our view.
We had lunch in the restaurant which was nice. My husband didn't get exactly what he asked for but this was no big deal.
We swam in the pool after a long visit to the Taj and can reccomend the pool. We then opted for a private balcony dinner. Saurav served it to us and he was simply outstanding! He gave just thr right level of service, not intrusive but very friendly. We learned that he was on the hotels graduate programme and hoped to be a general manager soon. I can safely say he will make it as he was outstanding. Dinner on the balcony was AMAZING! The food was fantastic and the setting and the way the hotel laid it out was perfect.
The next day at breakfast Saurav searched us out and gave us some more incredible service. We actually felt like royalty while positioned next to one of the worlds most beautiful landmarks, and i'm not really sure you can ask for much more than that from a hotel...
Oh and although the wifi was not included in our package, the hotel waived this fee (presumably because they knew I wanted to take so many photos of the beautiful Taj and post them to my social media :-))
So once again...you have to stay here!!!
- 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
