one must stay in amarvilas who comes to see the beauty of the Taj Mahal, all rooms in this beautiful hotel are facing the "TAJ" the monument of eternal love. we stayed in a room with balcony & were mesmerized with not only the view of the monument but also the rear view of the hotel which houses the most amazing landscape & the infinity swimming pool. Evening are even more dazzling as the hotel torches which they call "Marshals" & the water casading down towards the pool is bliss.
One cannot miss to admire the beauty & architecture during entering the hotel the series of Marshals then the reflection pool, safa clad attenders with a lady to welcome & the the passage to the lobby through the fountain & those beautiful paintings of gold wark are to be enjoyed for life. Once you step inside the grand lobby one must lift their head to see the blue & gold dome with its heavy chandlier dropping down to lit the huge yet royal lobby, i felt like a maharaja of Agra.
The 2 restaurants "Bellevue" & "Esphahan" are truly well made, esphahan is more regal due to its cozyness & ambience, the lady "Madhuji" soulful music actually makes you fell like a star. The indian menu is very good & the cyclic menus in bellevue are also innovative yet expensive.
The SPA is so quite that the moment you step in you feel relaxed & the messages are really the actual stress busters, the hard ballanise message was ment for a built like I, but what makes this hotel good is its hospitality.
Front desk staff & Butler service needs some improvement is what i felt.
Overall if you visist agra after paying a visit to "TAJ" one must not ignore the "AMARVILAS" for its a jewel to the crown of the Oberoi Group.
- 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
