We drove from Gurgaon to Agra for a short ,1D/1N weekend break. One of the reasons to pick Agra as our destination was the expressway, as we were not in the mood to spend long hours on the road drive. While the drive till Agra was a smooth sail, the city was sure crowded and roads broken. Entry in to the hotel brought a smile back to our face. It's not a very big property, but beautifully spread around the pool area which is at the center of the hotel- which males it different. It took us hardly 5 minutes to check-in, we were offered a choice for the bed size. The room was not very big, but comfortable and plush with all amenities, and it overlooked the pool and surrounding area. Bed and pillows were very comfortable, and we had a sound sleep.
Our travel co-incided with the Full moon night, when the Taj Mahal opens for a special night view. Tickets for a full moon night have to be booked 24-hours in advance. Since we could not be there to purchase the ticket that soon, we had checked with the hotel concierge if they could buy the tickets for us. And they did (charged additional service fee, which is fine). We appreciated this service. The hotel is a mere 5 minute drive from Taj East gate, which was very convenient.
Rooms were clean, the hotel lobby area smelled nice in the evening from the incense sticks that were lighted on all corners. The pool area gives out a very relaxed and peaceful feel to the property. Food was good, we had buffet spread for Dinner as well as breakfast. The spread was good, food was mildly spiced not very hot or spicy. Maybe it was prepared keeping in mind the huge number of foreign tourists staying at the hotel. Staff was pleasant and very helpful.
We would like to thank all staff at the restaurant for their attentive service, and Shreya for serving our table, and being so nice. Also, would like to thank Yash at the front desk who was very helpful with directions and other tips.
Overall, a very comfortable and relaxed stay!
