If you ever intend to spash out on one night in a luxury hotel make it this one. Sitting on the balcony watching the sun go down over the Taj Mahal is a truely memorable experience. From the balcony the Taj is framed beautifully by the sky and trees that lie between it and the hotel. (We did not find the divide to be the wasteland eyesore described by other reviewers). To explore the Taj at closer quarters use the free golf carts provided by the Hotel to take you to the entrance. This is a convenient extra which helps avoid some (but by no means all) of the souvenir sellers and would be guides on the way.
Whilst the main attraction of the hotel is the stunning view and proximity to the Taj it also boasts wonderful service, elegant rooms and the most beautiful pool/garden area. We only stayed here for one night but were given a late check out enabling us to enjoy the hotel until the early evening of our departure.
This is an expensive hotel but if your budget can stretch to it you will not be disappointed.
- 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
