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
Enjoyed every minute of being at this hotel. Not only the close proximity to the Taj Mahal monument is phantastic. The hotel itself is a great place to stay. Rooms are exceptional, staff is extraordinary, just the way to make you feel special.
The hotel is truly stunning and offers simply unique views of the Taj Mahal. The facilities (from the bar, to the restaurants, to the pool and the gym) are top notch. In addition, it is only 600 metres away from the east gate of the TM, which makes it incredibly convenient. The added bonus is that the hotel is able to arrange tickets for its guests, which I believe very few (if not any) other hotels are able to do. The staff - at all levels - was probably the best we came across in India and certainly in the top 3 we came across anywhere in the world. I would be remiss if I did not mention at least Sangram Singh, Prachi (whose family name I have unfortunately forgotten) and Abhishek Panshikar (the GM). They really made us feel welcome and special and, on top of that, made our whole experience easy and smooth. I cannot recommend this hotel enough. I appreciate it is expensive but it is worth every penny!

The Oberoi Amarvilas is exceptional. I had the best view from my room. Their service is absolutely top notch and the food is exceptional. Hotelâ€™s garden and swimming pool are absolutely gorgeous. I had a very comfortable stay and highly recommend the Oberoi.

Arriving at the hotel is magical as from reception you look out across to the Taj Mahal. At this hotel every room has a view of the Taj. We had a room with a balcony from which we breakfasted looking at the sunrise over the Taj - a very special moment. The staff we excellent and couldnâ€™t have been more helpful. The hotel also offers a shuttle buggy to take you directly to the entrance to the Taj Mahal. Our only regret was that we should have stayed longer to enjoy more of the facilities.

We were only here for one night and arrived tired after an overnight flight from London followed by a long drive. We quickly woke from our jet lag with a very warm welcome from the staff as we arrived at the Oberoi Amarvillas. We had room service as we were tired which was great and the food delicious. All this with the Taj Mahal framed in our balcony. Stunning. A delicious breakfast after a trip to see the Taj Mahal, made even easier with the golf buggy transfer. A wonderful facial at the spa and a â€˜packed lunchâ€™ organised for us as we were travelling over lunch. Really impressive and excellent service. A wonderful way to star our trip in India. Thank you to all.
