With a view of the stunning Taj Mahal from one's balcony it would be easy to overlook any deficiencies in a hotel. But there is no need to do so here because it is perfect. Impeccable service, well appointed room, excellent food etc etc. Sadly our short overnight stay for sunset and sunrise visits to the Taj meant we did...

We stayed at the Amarvillas hotel in a room overlooking the Taj. If you think you have some idea about the Taj Mahal from having seen pictures, think again. It is simply impossible to have a sense of how spectacular it is, without visit it in person. Having a terrace overlooking the Taj makes it even more spectacular. The hotel...

Although the main attraction in Agra will always be the Taj Mahal, leave some time to explore this lovely hotel.

This hotel is paradise!!! You can not hope for a better hotel in this city. Forget probably the best view of any hotel in the world, the service is out of this world, the restaurants are just perfect, and the spa is not to be missed. If you are going to Agra its the only place to stay!!!

This facility lives up to the Oberoi service standards and is first rate. The staff, the facility, the food and ambiance are all outstanding. Because of fog/mist our view room overlooked the fog rather than the Taj. While disappointing, this wasn't the hotel's fault.

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
