The hotel is situated perfectly for viewing the Taj Mahal. We could see the Taj at sunrise from our room. The hotel is magnificent and well-run. The rooms are wonderful, and the dining is excellent. Agra is no longer an ordeal to get there, as there is the super highway from Delhi.

As you walk through the lobby you have the first glance at the Taj Mahal. We enjoyed the sunset from the terrace admiring the view. The food is delicious, and the staff is very kind and friendly. The room was very confortable and it is a few minutes away from the Taj. Must visit!

We traveled with Elegant Journeys to this amazing hotel, everything was taken care of, If the Taj Mahal is on your bucket list, then you must stay at this hotel, they make everyone feel like a VIP, or a movie star, there can't be anything anyone can complain about, it is the ultimate in service, comfort, and beauty.

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
