We enjoyed our 1 night stay at the Oberoi Amarvilas. We arrived first thing in the morning on the train from Delhi and could not have received a more warm welcome than at the Oberoi Amarvilas.
The rooms and facilities are impeccable. It's only a short 5 minute walk to the gates of the Taj, and the hotel even offers a shuttle service there and back.
The pool is fantastic!! I don't think I've swum in a nicer hotel pool before! The gym facilities are also top notch.
The restaurants are both fantastic. If you are craving beef, then have a steak at the restaurant. It was amazing!
Lastly, the staff are all extremely friendly and willing to help. We caught a late train out of Agra the next day, and the hotel manager gave us a spare room for us to freshen up in. That was a nice touch from them, rather than us having to change and shower at the gym.
We will definitely stay here again if we go back to Agra.
- 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
