This place has an obstructed view of the Taj Mahal. We had a nice romantic candlelit dinner on the balcony overlooking the Taj Mahal and beautiful landscape. For photogs, you'll get some good shots if you have long range lens. For bird lovers, there are a few variety of big birds flying in circles above. You can get a good...

Like others perhaps I was taken aback by the room rates for this hotel. We wanted to stay in Agra for 2 nights so we could explore some areas outside the city and the cost of the rooms seemed much higher then anything else in town. All I can say is it was worth everything and was one of the...

Best in Agra. Room views of the Taj Mahal. Very good Indian restaurant. Staff very helpful. The garden is spectacular. At night they have music and a classic Indian dancer on the garden January may not be best time to come since it can be quite foggy

What an exquisite setting, gracious service, and delicious food! Recommended by friends, we decided to stop here for lunch on a day visit to the Taj.

This was my second visit to the hotel and it is a truly special place. Beautifully done, perfect service, excellent food what else could one ask for. It's the best Oberoi I have visited. The best rooms face the Taj Mahal but are hard to obtain unless booked well in advance. Spa was excellent.

Or almost! What can I say? Staff perfect, beautiful, impeccable in everyway. Rooms with all a breath taking view on the Taj Mahal decorated with perfect taste. The pool and garden? One of the most beautiful I have seen, in moghol style very nicely imitated with marble arches, paintings, local embroided umbrellas... A real dream.

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
