The staff defines the word "service," the food is excellent, and the rooms are grand with the Taj Mahal front and center from your hotel view. Along with modern amenities, rich toiletries, the VIP tour of the Taj Mahal and well manicured grounds, I cannot find any faults of this hotel.
My favorite part was the pool, which is spacious and grand, and ducks below the portico into a semi-indoor room adorned with columns and a potrait of Ganesha. You feel like you're swimming in a temple, tasting what it might have felt like being a king!
The hotel is pricey, but if you can afford the tariff, Oberoi pulls out the stops to make your stay as nice as possible.
- 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
