My first Oberoi hotel which is like a modern Maharajah's palace in the middle of a place where I can't see anything luxurious except the Tak Mahal. The lobby is such a huge space. The entire hotel is just spacious! At first I thought there wasn't anyone in the hotel. But you see them in the dining room for breakfast...

This is a gorgeous hotel, with lovely gardens, very close to the Taj Mahal - with impeccable service, wonderful food and buffets, and great gift shops with high quality goods. The rooms are wonderful - ask for one overlooking the pool or gardens.

I'm not independently wealthy so staying at this hotel was a splurge to say the least. While 1 night was all we could stay, we thoroughly enjoyed our time at this hotel.

The first time I visited The Oberoi Amarvilas in 2003 there were not many accommodation options in Agra and my travel agent insisted that I stay the night when visiting Taj Mahal, specifically Amarvilas.

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
