Our recent stay at the Amaravilas Agra was wonderful. We had stayed in this hotel 5 years ago and the personal attention we received at that time was repeated and is indeed the hallmark of Oberoi hotels. From the warm and friendly welcome and check-in overlooking the Taj Mahal by Shivani to the beautiful room with balcony overlooking the Taj, our 30th Wedding Anniversary celebration could not have been more memorable.
The hotel is beautifully appointed and all staff acknowledge guests as they walk past. The quality of food and service in the restaurants is excellent and lazing at the pool is a delight. Once selecting the sun lounge, guests are provided with towels, water and a small bottle of Ayurveda sunscreen. Yoga sessions from 3-4pm daily are complimentary and then there is the gym and Spa to explore. The Noor-E-J-Taj Spa treatment is a 3 hour pampering experience consisting of a steam bath, exfoliation, body wrap, body and scalp massage and then finishing with a 30 minute milk and honey bath overlooking the Taj-It was HEAVEN and Rebecca the therapist was caring and professional explaining each part of the treatment and ensuring that I was comfortable at all times!
My husband and I cannot speak highly enough of this hotel and the staff. Nothing was too much trouble and they went out of their way to ensure that our stay was special and memorable. An example of this is at the conclusion of dinner on the first night, the staff brought out a 30th Anniversary cake for us. We would like to thank Shivani mentioned earlier who answered all our questions and organised the cake and allocated us our room. The ladies in the Gem Palace shop were also very patient and informative as we took time to choose a gift to mark our Anniversary.
The other amazing aspect of this hotel is its proximity to the Taj Mahal.From the moment you open the curtains in the room each morning till sunset, each guest has an unobstructed view of the Taj. Thinking you will have a glance out the window, you find yourself gazing at it for extended periods and observing the way in which the color of the marble changes with the time of day.
We arrived on Thursday afternoon, so went on the nature walk opposite the hotel, which gives spectacular views of the Taj. The next day being Friday meant that the Taj was closed, but which gave us time to walk around the side of the monument and down to the river to take in the vista and then meander through the streets of the local area. Saturday was our time to visit the Taj- it was crowded, but the sky was clear and we took our time observing the the building from every angle and taking many photos to remember our time in Agra. Staying at this hotel is a real treat and we hope to return at some time in the future.

I went to the Oberoi's for breakfast after watching the sunrise at the Taj Mahal with a few friends. The hotel is so beautiful, to be honest I thought the hotel was more beautiful than the Taj Mahal itself. The breakfast buffet was amazing. Had a look around the hotel a little...i must say I've never seen a hotel as beautiful as this in my life so far.

How great isnt it to be met at the railway station by a charming and well knowledge girl, a driver and a sunny morning.
Amarvilas know how to sell themselves and I buy it all.
Everything in this hotel is very professional and service minded....and you really feel as you are the only one they care about.
Everyone is extremely helpful, without being ¨to much¨and a lovely smile is on every employers face.
The staff is young and dynamic and have a vision.
Great stay!

We have stayed in some luxurious places, but nothing can compare to the Oberoi Amarvilas. The minute we entered, we felt like this was our home. The welcome drink in the Lobby Bar was calming and then when we were shown our room, we surrendered ourselves to the hotel. You can see the Taj Mahal easily from every room. The staff were exceptionally friendly - from the porters to the bar and restaurant staff, greeting us by name on every occasion. The restaurants were varied and every meal we had over our three days was outstanding. We loved the pool and the spa facilities. Nothing has been overlooked. Did I mention that the Oberoi Amarvillas has redefined luxury? We will be back.

Room Tip: Every single room is fabulous

I could live here. To wake up daily and open your curtains to see the gleaming marble Taj Mahal, is truly wondrous. The hotel is beautifully appointed. The service is spectacular, from the moment your car door is opened, to being welcomed by the hotel General Manager, to a butler on call. You really could not ask for more.
