The Oberoi Amarvilas offers something unique. It's a chance to experience the Taj Mahal in a way that exceeds your highest expectations.
We spent two nights in a premier room with balcony. Booking a room without a balcony is probably the worst thing you could do given the cost of the rooms. So think balcony or bust.
The value of your stay will probably very much depend on the weather. We were incredibly blessed with clear skies and a full moon. So despite being a fan of the hotel, I would not spend the money on a room here if I knew the weather was going to be bad.
The staff was excellent, but they seemed under-staffed. The restaurant was good but not great and certainly not very authentic.
But this establishment isn't about the service or the restaurants. It's about the incredible views of the Taj Mahal from your room. My advice would be to book late when you are certain of good weather, and definitely book a room with a balcony.
- 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
