We stayed here as you see the Taj Mahal from every room, unfortunately for us it was foggy, of course this is not the fault of the hotel. On the whole out of all the places we stayed this was the most disappointing, the worst food and breakfast unfortunately. The rooms however are very beautiful and comfortable.

Beautiful hotel but non residents beware. Non residents are restricted to secondary areas of the hotel, have to pay for wifi even though the F&B prices are equal to Europe and spa is exclusively for residents too. As soon as Front Office knew I was a non resident they were polite but distant boarding on unwelcome.

After staying at the Oberoi Rajvilas within the same 10 days our expectations were very high. Based on the positive reviews, we thought this place would be a no brainer. This review probably won't matter because it is the only hotel in its class that somebody would choose to stay at. There is not much of an alternative. The best...

This is by far one of the most beautiful hotels I have every stayed in. You really do feel as if you are staying in a palace. The hotel and grounds are spectacular and the view of the Taj Mahal from your room is worth it! Service is exceptional! The hotel restaurant has excellent food.

We stayed here for a night as part of our Holiday. The grounds were breathtaking and hotel was very well located, nearest to the Taj Mahal. The rooms with balcony are worth a upgrade as we enjoyed a leisurely evening in one of ours overlooking the Taj. A bit of smog but not a big problem at all. The breakfast...

Billed as the closest you can stay (in luxury) to the Taj Mahal itself, but somehow we imagined the view of the Taj Mahal from our balcony would be a lot bigger (turns out you’re still some distance from the monument.) Pool area is beautiful, perhaps more so at night. Makes a really pleasant post-dinner walk around the property. International...

I kept thinking the hotel had my family mixed up with someone important. From the moment we arrived at the Oberoi Amarvilas, we were treated with attentiveness and warmth. The fact that we had beautiful rooms facing the Taj Mahal would have sufficed. Then came welcome gifts. The coup: A dozen red roses, a cake and personal card were delivered...

Granted, the rooms are expensive but that thought immediately leaves your mind upon check in. The guest service throughout the hotel and especially in the restaurants is unrivaled. The rooms are lovely as are the grounds AND its the only hotel in Agra with rooms overlooking the Taj. Fabulious!!!

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
