This is by far one of the most magical places you get to go to in your whole life. Amazing view of taj mahal with a traditional yet luxerious hotel. A must must visit when in agra. Cannot be missed. Try to get drinks in terrace or eat at any of their restaurants

We had the pleasure of staying at the Oberoi for 2 nights while winding down our vacation in India, what a treat! We took the train in from Jhansi, which of course was running late, so we ended up checking in around 10:30/11:00 PM. The hotel staff were very friendly, understood we were late and wanted to get us checked...

We had the most amazing stay here with a great of view of the Taj Mahal. Can definitely recommend the Indian cuisine restaurant. The chef even gave us his recipe for Butter Chicken. The staff couldn't do enough for us.

The property has all the charm of a royal, heritage setting. The entrance and gardens are absolutely beautiful, and the water fountains and streams create a perfect 'Mughal Garden' feel. The sound and sight of the water flowing, combined with the peacock cries from across the fence will transport you away. Seriously, the architecture is very clever, with attention to...

An exceptional hotel with a world class view of the Taj Mahal, exquisite service and a fantastic swimming pool. Rooms are top quality, service is nearly perfect. Lovely little touches such as Indian flutists to greet you for breakfast.

Simply amazing! We entered the grounds and as usual we were blown away by the Oberoi beauty outside and in. But wait! It gets even better! We entered our room and there through the window staring right at us is the Taj Mahal! Are you kidding me!? It's the only hotel with a view of the Taj! Management and all...

This is a gorgeous luxury hotel very close to the Taj Mahal. Practically all the rooms have a view of the Taj Mahal. Our room was beautifully furnished and had modern amenities. The bathroom was large and well designed. We had a walk-in closet the was well sized. The only thing our room lacked was a balcony facing the Taj...

We were fortunate enough to stay in the Ambassadors Penthouse Suite which was just incredible. I had a view of the Taj Mahal from the end of my freestanding bath! The suite was slightly run down and traditional but immaculately maintained and the service was impeccable. What a treat!

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
