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.

It was my dream to visit the Taj Mahal for my 50th birthday. I would never have booked this hotel but my friend is extravagant, and I am very glad of that. We were advised we only needed one night here, but if you can stretch to more, then my advice is that it is money well

Why 120$ in fees a night??? That’s crazy!
Well there are taxes of 18%. $700*18%= $126. Wait until you have dinner. That said, if you can do it, you will be amazed.
