“Rooftop Bar”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

Even if you don't stay in this fantastic hotel (we didn't), make sure you visit the rooftop bar with a stunning view of the Taj Mahal. Perfect for a late evening drink!

The service was impeccable, and prices aren't off the charts for a hotel of this class. A must do when in Agra.

I should have planned a longer stay at this beautiful property. Make sure you stay in a room with a balcony facing the Taj Mahal. Sipping tea at the balcony with a direct view of one of the 7 wonders of the world was such a memorable experience. The pool must not be missed as well!

i didn't stay here - so can't say much about the rooms...but the penne with porcini and chile was great - and nice wine selection as well. they have wifi, and if it's not lunchtime yet you can wait in the upstairs bar, overlooking the taj. great wind-down to a monumental (!!sorry!!) morning.

If you can, you must stay at the Amarvillas! from the moment you enter you are treated like royallty. The hotel is simply fabulous - it smells beautifully of India rose's, a breath taking view from each room of the Taj Mahal, the pool and ground are outstanding and the service and hospitality is unequaled in any great hotel. We have stayed in the best hotels in the world and now rank the Oberoi Amarvillas as one of the best! There are so many wonderful aspects - the wonderful tea and coffee (with a taste of banana bread) for sunrise visitors to the Taj Mahal, a private golf cart to drop you close to the Taj Mahal entrance, a fabulous guide was arranged for visiting all the sites, a delicious breakfast each morning, an afternoon refreshing swim in the sparkling pool and a delicious dinner in Esphahan. The entire staff could not have been more accommodating. it is simply magnificent.

This hotel by far has been the best experience for my family and I. The service was outstanding.By far its the best customer service I have ever had compared to many 5star hotels we have stayed in. They had so many unbelievable events planned for the kids. They were ready at all times to service what ever you needed. Their chefs were amazing, food was awesome. Hotel rooms were outstanding making one feel majestic. The hotel room balcony opened up to the Taj. You have to stay here is you are visiting the Taj Mahal.

We visited Amarvilas in Feb 2010.

It carries all that you attach with best of Oberoi's hospitality. Without exagerating, the rooms have magnificent view of Taj Mahal. It is a photogenic view. You cannot get better access to Taj than this.

Property itself is excellent. Specifically its cultural program in its courtyard in the evening provides you picturesque evening with Taj Mahal in background.

If you go to Agra, you have to be at Amarvilas, provided you could aford it.

The most magical place ever, breathtaking! I don't think you can ever get a better view than here, and on top of that, the property is also amazing, the rooms perfect, the beds great, the service immaculate, the stuff welcoming, helpful and smiling. I arrived in the evening, went down to the pool after a perfect dinner, and was swimming till midnight, which just tells you how amazing the pool is, since I don't like swimming normally at all... :) The next day had my coffee at 6 am sitting overlooking the Taj while the sun was coming up... Honestly, can't even find the proper words for that experience...
The only bad thing about my stay was that it was only one night.... I can't wait to my next stay at the Oberoi Amarvilas and the Taj Mahal as I will certainly be back again! Thank you!

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
