2022 Travelers' Choice Best of the Best
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.

This is one of the best hotel of the Oberoi group. The service, the staff and everything is world class. Always love to be in a Oberoi hotel and always get something more special from them. The hotel is very near to the Taj Mahal and every room has a view of the Taj Mahal which is really very unique. The guide they provide ( with charges) is very good and we must have a guide when we visit the Taj Mahal. The food is very good and the way it is served is so nice that you always end up eating more:)

Fantastic views from the entire hotel, great service from the point you reach the reception right up till you check out. As soon as you enter the hotel, you feel you’ve been transported to a different city especially after the hustle bustle of the rest of the city, this seems meditative.

This property does justice to the name. From welcoming at the arrival point until the exit, everything was spot on and we felt welcomed. The food both during breakfast and dinner were beyond excellent. Room was just wow with amazing views of the Taj Mahal. Hotel arranged our Taj tour and even that was well done. The whole property and the team went beyond their call of duty to make my family and our guests welcomed and special. Thank you The Oberon and team.

We had a wonderful experience at this hotel and will definitely be recommending it to other friends and family who want to visit Agra. Check-in process was very efficient and comfortable. Our room was stunning with a wonderful view of the Taj Mahal. The pool already is also lovely and very well maintained. All the grounds staff maintaining the gardens and property and extremely polite and always greeted us with a smile. Food was impeccable. Probably the best masala chai we had on our entire trip around India. The breakfast selection both Indian and continental was exquisite. Particular mention to the French toast as it was amazing! Dinner at Espahan was a lovely experience. All the staff were very attentive and helpful with the menu. The live music was a lovely addition also. The little touches, however, are what sets this hotel above the rest. All the good buggy staff are more than happy to greet you and assist in taking you to the Taj Mahal. Even when it came to our sunrise viewing! The hotel provided mini water bottles and shoe covers for the entrance as well as a mini breakfast station to grab some tea and pastries before which definitely helped with the early start. A stunning property in an excellent location but the service was unparalleled also. And we think that is what sets this hotel apart from the others in Agra.

There is no other Hotel better to stay in Agra if you are going to see the Taj Mahal. The rooms (in some cases even the bathrooms/toilets) have a fantastic view of The Taj. If you are on a higher floor, I would highly recommend the Balcony rooms. The service is impeccable!

I’ve been fortunate enough to stay at some of the finest resorts in the world, and this property was so amazing, and so spectacular on so many levels, it left me speechless. The property is exquisite and meticulously maintained. The lobby is grand, the pool area is beautiful and relaxing and the grounds are lush. The rooms are very comfortable and looking out your window and seeing the Taj Mahal is unreal and never gets old. The property is a short, two minute buggy ride to the gates of the Taj Mahal. Now, the real star(s) of the show is the staff. The level of hospitality and care for the guests is unreal. Each interaction was warm, helpful, and most importantly kind. They’re experts at anticipating anything and everything you might need and do lots of small gestures to ensure your stay is memorable. We were continually blown away by how well we were treated here. A special mention to Stanley, Somdutta, Bilal, and Uddhav. Each of you went above and beyond to take care of us and your friendliness and hospitality will not be forgotten. Thank you so much for making this once-in-a-lifetime trip so memorable. If you are lucky enough to travel to Agra, you must stay here!
