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.

I decided I would surprise my girlfriend by taking her to India for the weekend and proposing to her in front of the iconic Taj Mahal, a place she had wanted to visit for a some time. From research it was clear that the Oberoi was head and shoulders above its competition in Agra and it was important I had booked the best for such an important weekend in my life. The service was incredible throughout our stay - nothing was too much. They even arranged for tickets to the Taj Mahal to be at the front desk waiting for us when we came down in the morning - we really didn't need to worry about anything. Our room was incredible with the most amazing view of the Taj Mahal - it was absolutely breath taking. I decided I would book 'Dining Under the Stars' which had come highly recommended by the Oberoi staff. This turned out to be the most romantic dining experience of my life due to the beauty and privacy of the setting. We had our own santoor player who set the mood as well as waiter who made us both feel very special. An especially nice touch was our waiter wrapping a turban on me which we loved! The food quality was exceptional and after the 6 or so courses we we retreated back to our room extremely full. When we got back to our room we saw that they had left us a cake to congratulate us and had put rose petals in the bath. It was clear they care about their guests and that they were genuinely happy for us. This was an incredible experience and one neither of us will forget for the rest of our life. We hope we will be lucky enough to be able to come back in the not too distant future to celebrate with you again. I would highly recommend the Oberoi to anyone visiting Agra- there is not a better place to be. Thank you so much Oberoi for making everything so perfect for us. Richard & Amy

This is the PERFECT hotel to stay at in Agra! Le palais des milles et une nuit !! We have the feeling to be in the Disney movie Aladin! Perfect and clear view of the Taj Mahal from the hotel and the rooms. A warm welcoming ceremony by the staff in front of the Taj Mahal. Few minutes away from the Taj Mahal, the hotel arranges tickets, guide and drive to the Taj Mahal to make it memorable. Do not hesitate to wake up early to visit the place at sunrise! Memorable time!!

I think that most of the reviews on here have fairly summed up the hotel, but I have to admit that I was not prepared to have been so impressed by this hotel. In a way, it feels like both a city hotel and a resort, but it is far more charming than I was expecting. First off, the most obvious part of the hotel's repute is the view of the Taj Mahal. It was indeed a most majestic and commanding view. From a child looking at photos of that great monument to a man standing on my balcony and seeing it with my own eyes, it was certainly a dream come true. We were there to meet some friends, and we met by the pool upon arrival. The pool service was great, and the pool itself was marvelous. It was so refreshing to be in the water and have the beautifully manicured grounds as the background. We had dinner at the Indian restaurant that evening, and the food certainly was impressive. It was like a tasting memo, so every craving got satisfied! The room itself was lovely. I was worried that it would be showing signs of age, but I thought it was incredibly well-maintained. It was very pleasantly decorated and had plenty of room. Also, the afore-mentioned view of the Taj Mahal from the balcony was the cherry on top! I highly recommend this hotel, as well as booking your vacation through Oberoi Exotic Vacations (you can find my review of them on my review of the Oberoi New Delhi).

I satied with my family at The Oboroi Amarvillas and shocked by the high level of service. Rooms are newly renovated and supported with technology based services. Well done Oboroi, and I'll never think twice before coming again next time. Regards,

Wonderful view of the Taj Mahal. The place to stay in Arga. With the bucks. Love the pool area, chandelier in the lobby area. Treated well by all the staff. Room service was a delight. 5 star plus on all counts.
