“This is absolute the perfect place!”
Reviewed 9 April 2012

This is absolute the perfect place with the best professionals we have met in Rajastan!
Everything is 100% and the people are not to formel but just very good. Of course the view of the Taj Mahal is perfect, but without that the stay is perfect.

This is a great place to stay for your visit to the Taj Mahal. It is only about 600m from the east gate, so an easy walk, or you can ride on golf carts provided by the hotel.
The hotel is very good, and our room was very clean and tidy. Food in the restaurants was great. And just wonderful having views of the Taj from many parts of the hotel.
I really liked their scheme for tips; guests were invited to leave any gratuities in an envelop at the front desk. This is much more convenient than trying to find small change for every porter, waiter and other staff member.

The Oberoi Amarvilas is a truly amazing property. We had a view of the Taj Mahal from our balcony. The staff went above and beyond to make sure that we were comfortable in every way. We only stayed one night, so didn't get a chance to try the pool or spa, but they looked enticing! The food was fabulous, and service was excellent. Our 8 year old daughter was treated like a princess the entire time.

This was my husband's third and my second trip to Agra. Don't know whether we would go back again, we said we had to stay in Oberoi in order to see the Taj Mahal from our room when we wake up in the mornings. This (view of the Taj from our hotel room) turned out to be the best thing about staying at this hotel. Otherwise, the service, the restaurants and the room are all quite good but not exceptional.

Room Tip: Rooms with view of the Taj is essential and with a balcony is worth the extra money

The Oberoi Amarvilas has the most beautiful views of the Taj Mahal from every bedroom and common area. The views are stunning, changing with the time of the day and the light. Seeing the sun arise over the Taj from your bedroom is a magnificent experience. Sunset is just as spectacular. You can get to the Taj easily, it is just a short distance away. You are also well situated to see the Red Fort in Agra. The service is excellent and the restaurants are quite good. If you have never seen the Taj Mahal, you must go to the Oberoi and experience it first class.

Room Tip: All the rooms have a great view but check with reservations to get the very best.

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
