The Oberoi Amarvilas in Agra, India
Nestled in grand style amidst lush terraced lawns, gorgeous reflecting pools, and graceful fountains, The Oberoi Amarvilas emerges with grandeur fit for a temple. With the best view of the fabulous Taj Mahal, this luxurious retreat in the heart of the city of Agra welcomes you to enjoy contemporary comforts as you explore ancient wonders. Spacious rooms and suites are bright and inviting, with beautiful teak flooring and abundant sunlight streaming through French doors. Sleep in deeply plush beds each night, sink into deliciously gorgeous marble baths, and stretch out on private terraces overlooking the gardens and the Taj Mahal. Enjoy all the modern amenities, wonderful personalized butler service, and the breathtaking sight of the sun rising and setting over the Taj Mahal each morning and night. At The Oberoi Amarvilas you will set out upon an adventure you will treasure forever.
Start your journey with a visit to the Taj Mahal, a gleaming monument to love built by Emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his beloved second wife Mumtaz Mahal. See the Imad-Ud-Daulah, the first building in India built from marble and crafted with inlay work, and the predecessor to the Taj Mahal, and be amazed at the beautiful architecture. Walk through the Fatehpur Sikri, the capital of the Mughal Empire from 1571 to 1585, and gaze upon a well preserved example of the height of the empire's power. Enjoy a peaceful day trip to Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary, where vibrant and rare species will delight you, or take a cycling trip through the countryside near Agra, against serene mountain vistas. Take a lovely morning to go fishing at Keetham Lake in Surdas Reserved Forest, then return to the hotel to be pampered at The Oberoi Spa. Swim through the crystal waters, past glorious columns in the garden pool of the hotel, then head inside for an amazing evening meal. Dine at Esphahan for traditional Indian cuisine, or relax and enjoy international fare at Bellevue. End the night with a glass of wine or a cocktail at the bar, and like the end to a fairy tale, watch the stars come out over the Taj Mahal.

Reviews for The Oberoi Amarvilas
It is a nice hotel with nice people and maybe we were tired but this hotel is more for one stop shopping. Rooms with a view, fantastic pool, nice service. The restaurants however should be made more exclusive. I can find these in any hilton as well. Again it is probably the nicest hotel here....

This stunning hotel gets one in the mood for a visit to the Taj Mahal. We have a view of this magnificent building from our room which overlooks manicured gardens and a huge swimming pool with the Taj peeking out from the fog in the distance. The service and ambiance of this Oberoi hotel are second to none. They do it so well!

We stayed in Agra at the Oberoi AmarVilas for one night on January 5th. The hotel was amazing. The staff worked to make us very comfortable and gave us many extra goodies. The weather was not very cooperative.. it was quite foggy until almost 11am, so we couldn't really see the Taj at sunrise, which was a disappointment. The restaurant staff was great.. very helpful, they even packed an assortment of pastries for us for our trip back to Delhi.

The service at this beautiful hotel is first rate and the staff could not be more accommodating. Stunning architecture and beauty abound and the convenience (not to mention view) to the Taj Mahal is wonderful.

This is the best hotel I have stayed in. The brochure description made it sound wonderful, with the Taj Mahal visible from every room. Being cynical, I wondered if I would need to stand on a chair and lean out the window, as in some UK â€˜seaviewâ€™ hotels, but I was blown away by the clear view from the room and from the balcony outside. The service is mesmerizingly good with someone always available to help you in any way you wish. Whatâ€™s more, this is service not just with a smile but with a genuine wish to not just satisfy you but to exceed your expectation. As just one example (and we experienced several), we checked in and needed to grab something to eat quickly because we were being picked up by our guide at a fixed time. We explained the problem but there was nothing on the menu hat could be prepared and eaten in the time available, so we asked if we could just have some bread rolls. These came, but then we were provided with some absolutely lovely mulligatawny soup, because they could not let us go out an empty stomach. When we finished, I asked for the bill, but was told that all the food was with their compliments as we could not have a proper meal. Yes, I know the room cost is astronomic, but this quite small gesture showed real care for their guests and was memorable. This hotel is a real treat and if you possibly can, you should go.
