Each room and suite faces out, across the most beautiful swimming pool and waterfalls, to the well tended gardens and the view extends over the boundary of the property and across to some local houses, and further onto a copse of trees and above that ... there she stands, her white, marble majestically glimmering... the Taj Mahal. Why would you stay anywhere else, when you can see her not only from your balcony but also from sitting or lying in bed. Outstanding.
If you are coming to Agra, then you have to stay here as the view of the Taj is better than being up close and personal. Plus Agra itself is one of the dirtiest cities I visited in India, which was very disappointing considering the amount of tourists that visit... so get out of the dirt and anoint yourself in luxury!
The hotel is a dream with friendly staff, beautiful interiors and exteriors, great lighting which makes the entire place very special at night and a good choice of food and wine from the two restaurants.
Would I recommend The Oberoi Amarvilas, Agra? You betcha!
- 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
