“If you come to see the Taj, splurge at the Oberoi”
Reviewed 4 March 2012

The hotel is meticulously maintained and the staff pure delight. The breathtaking vista of the Taj from every window cannot be beat. The pool area is also like something out of a fairy tale. It isn't cheap and the dinners are good, not excellent but overall a superb experience. Agra itself is not very attractive but two days at the Oberoi is a perfect visit.

the best hotel ever seen in all respect, some rooms have balcony with view to Taj Mahal (suggested even if slightly more expensive) personnel is professional, polite and available, cleaning is top quality, quite expensive but suggested at least once in the life.
the hotel position is absolutely perfect as it is the nearest to Taj Mahal which can be visited by foot or with golf cart

All the rooms at the hotel have a view over the Taj. In the evening, as the sun sets, there is music and dancing on the terrace above the pool. Guests can either sit on their private balcony or on the bar terrace with full view of the dancing, Taj and sunset. Stunning! Like being at a very grand theatre!!
We had dinner in the Indian restaurant. Delicious amuse bouche and snacks followed by deliciously flavoured main courses. More than enough to eat!
Breakfast was varied but with a surprising lack of bread!... There was some, granted, but not the choice you might expect at a hotel of this class. Eggs and pancakes were at additional charge.
Beautiful bedroom and bathroom and an extra dressing room where the bags lived. Extremely comfortable.
Golf buggies take you to the Taj which is a bare few minutes away (you could walk in five).
Overall, a really first rate experience.

We enjoyed our 1 night stay at the Oberoi Amarvilas. We arrived first thing in the morning on the train from Delhi and could not have received a more warm welcome than at the Oberoi Amarvilas.

The rooms and facilities are impeccable. It's only a short 5 minute walk to the gates of the Taj, and the hotel even offers a shuttle service there and back.

The pool is fantastic!! I don't think I've swum in a nicer hotel pool before! The gym facilities are also top notch.

The restaurants are both fantastic. If you are craving beef, then have a steak at the restaurant. It was amazing!

Lastly, the staff are all extremely friendly and willing to help. We caught a late train out of Agra the next day, and the hotel manager gave us a spare room for us to freshen up in. That was a nice touch from them, rather than us having to change and shower at the gym.

We will definitely stay here again if we go back to Agra.

On our first trip to India, we visited the Taj Mahal (what else?) by daylight and moonlight, plus we enjoyed a 24-hour view of it from the balcony room of the spectacular Oberoi Amarvilas hotel. Needless to say that we were wowed. Not just by the view, but simply everything the hotel has to offer, be it the extremely friendly and efficient service, the fantastic Indian food, the beautifully furnished rooms, the gardens, and of course the pool. If, like me, you love swimming, then you won't want to get out of this pool anymore. It's the most spectacular thing I've ever seen (loved the Ganesha painting). If ever we go back to Agra, the Oberoi will definitely be our first choice again.

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
