We were extremely fortunate to have friends who gave us a night at the Oberoi in Agra when they learnt we were traveling to see the Taj Mahal. Both exceeded expectations.

Had a wonderful stay at this Hotel. The grounds are beautiful. The pool area is welcoming with bottled water, sun cream, body lotion etc given to you on arrival at pool.

The road leading to the newest of the hotels by the Oberoi Group leaves you wondering where you are going as the car heads down narrow and shabby streets in Agra. There is no hint of what is awaiting you as you finally turn into the gateway, except the very grand hotel sign in shiny brass. The vista that awaits... More

The Oberoi Amarvillas is an oasis of peace in a city that is very, very different. After a 3 hour drive from Delhi we arrived in 40 degree heat but were immediately ushered into a calm, cool reception area where we were served fruit drinks and towels along with a personal welcome from the General Manager Ankush Mahajan (I still...

Stayed for two nights as part of tour. Lovely hotel with great views of the Taj. Only place to stay in Agra. Of all the places we stayed the city is by far the worst but the Taj Mahal is a must, and so is this hotel.

The entrance to this hotel is spectacular, the rooms are lovely although in our room (329) the bed is a little off centre to the windows for the view. The shower was also something of a problem as the water pressure was not constant and the shower kept cutting out. We were on level 3 so the view was unobstructed... More

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
