WOW, even having been to other Oberoi hotels, this one took my breath away. All the rooms have a view of the Taj Mahal. Everything is just that bit more special, the service is outstanding and everything just stands out as extra special, the service, the decor, the view, the pool. As a guest there you get taken to the...

What do you say about Amarvilas it's simply the most fabulous hotel with a view of the Tal Mahal from every room, the staff quality of service, even betters that of the other Oberoi hotels, which is saying something, it is better than the best.

To end a beautiful visit to The Taj Mahal you must go here for lunch. The quality of food, service and ambience is to be experienced. It really does make a visit to the Taj a complete experience. The food is a little more than you will be used to paying on an Indian adventure, but worth every rupee. Delicious...

This hotel and grounds are simply beautiful. We stayed 2 nights in a fourth floor Palace room with a beautiful view of the Taj Mahal.

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
