Absolutely magnificent in every way. The location is just stunning, looking straight at the Taj Mahal. The gardens are beautiful. The hotel is just a two minute ride on a golf buggy from the Taj Mahal. The food is wonderful.

This is the best hotel in Agra. The personal welcome form the manager and refreshments made this a personalised visit, the pool area is beautiful and the overall service excellent. The Bellevue restaurant was busy at breakfast but the quality of the food exceptional. The room was fine but in our view was showing some wear and tear from the...

We were really excited to come here mainly for the Taj Mahal. In terms of the view and proximity, it was amazing. In value for money, I thought it was very over priced for what we got. The service was not good, the three times we needed reception we were waiting 5-10 minutes. It was big and lacked any personal...

My husband and I stayed 2 nights at the Oberoi Amarvilas after previous stops in New Delhi (The Lodhi), Jodhpur (Taj Umaid Bhawan Palace), Udaipur (Oberoi Udaivilas), and Varanasi (Taj Nadesar Palace). We assumed the extra night would allow us plenty of chances to see the Taj Mahal, which was the only reason for our visit. We were right! This...

This is luxurious and if you love a view, then book here. The Taj Mahal was framed from our balcony in a setting sun which was magical. The common areas and the pool are exquisite. Rooms are as you would expect and the staff are exceptional. Staff training at the Oberoi organisation must be outstanding as it is faultless where...

I stayed in 5 different Oberoi properties in India during February 2017. The trip was arranged directly through Oberoi, including transfers, sightseeing, guides, etc. If you are interested in the Oberoi properties, then I would encourage you to book directly with them. I had a very good experience working with Tenzin Nyima to arrange my trip, and I would do...

We only had one night in Agra but wanted a hotel with a view of the Taj Mahal. The Oberoi Amarvilas - although incredibly expensive - provides spectacular views. The rooms are beautiful and the service is impeccable. It is also incredibly convenient for sunrise viewings of the Taj Mahal, just down the road and the hotel provides complimentary electric...

This magnificent palace-type hotel is renowned for its bedroom views of the Taj Mahal and, on the basis that a couple of nights might be just affordable, be aware of the extras: a packet of biscuits from the room bar marked clearly as IR 60 was billed as IR 2000 but admittedly the reception dropped the item when it was...

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
